My SFF Gaming rig (with pics) - Page 2

post #11 of 28
From reading In Win's literature I'm having a lot of respect for their design chops. The BK series seems really good. I would strongly suggest building or modifying the PPCT so that you get 0% heated air blowing through your cooler. You will drop degrees and increase case air flow as the designers originally planned.

I'm thinking you should get to 4.5-5 ghz on GP. Imo this limit on your case temps is yours to remove. and costs zero $.

Could you give the total maximum cooler height
  1. with the optical carrier in.
  2. taking the carrier completely out.

Thanks, I'm looking @

The geminii s, Enzotech Extreme-X, Noctua_NH-C14, Thermalright AXP-140 with the proper 1155 brackets...

Sorry guys i kinda forgot about this thread already. So with an optical drive installed you get roughly 71mm of clearance between mobo and drive, if u take the optical drive out its ~110mm and without Optical drive carrier completely u'll get 119mm. Hopefully it helps. I can tell you that with an optical drive installed Geminii s would not fit even with skinny scythe slipstream fan.

Very nice build. I'm planning to use the In-Win BK644 as well with a 2500K and a Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z. I won't need a separate GPU, since it's not going to be used for gaming. But I will overclock as much as possible.

I've been wondering if the Noctua NH-C14 would fit in without av DVD. Without the top fan it's 105mm so it's not too high. But will it fit in with it's 140mm width and 166mm depth?

Do you have any advice of how one could enhance the cooling given the extra space from not having a big HD5850 in there?


Another possibility for builders could be Noctua's new low profile top-down cooler shown at Computex. It's only 91mm high with both fans and only 66mm high with only the lower fan.

Thank you kindly. To answer your question i'd say that NH-C14 wouldn't fit cause of its width, but IMO you dont need such bulky cooler for a SB cpu. All i have used was Scythe big shuriken with a fast cooler master 120x25mm fan. If you dont need an optical drive in there use CM geminii s - that cooler is very very serious. And to improve the airflow inside of the case - i can suggest smth similar to this:

i used this particular one cause it doesn't produce too much noise. Good luck with your build!

Are you sure about the Noctua (well, how can you be...)? The Scyte Big Shuriken on your photos is 125mm broad. With it's 140mm the Noctua will only be 0,75mm broader on each side. On your photos it looks like it's some space between the Shuriken and the casing. From where I sit it looks like it's about 1,25mm... :-)

Same on this photo:

Thanks for your time anyway. It's very nice that people like you make postings like this. It's not possible to find useful information about this case anywhere on the net except your post and a couple of user reviews on Newegg (including probably yours).

Edit: I see it's the Cooler master you've got there, but it's 124mm broad according to Cooler Masters specs.

i think height is the only real restriction. And the motherboard design (of course). The video card will always be in slot one (seems to me on m-atx). And cpu coolers don't go past the motherboard towards the top (there's never clearance there, traditionally.)
