BitFenix Colossus Venum-Cooling Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
CPU: 2500K (Mild oC to 4.5)
Mobo: Asrock Extreme4
Ram: GSkill X 2x4gb Cas8
GPU: EVGA 560Ti (will be overclocking to 900mhz)
HSF: Scythe Mugen Rev B
PSU: Antec TP 750w

Case: Bit Fenix Colossus http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/ [...] sus-venom/

I am pretty solid on the build after many iterations but wanted to get opinion on cooling needs in regards to this case, since it comes with only the 230 front intake and 230 exhaust. It has space for the optional 140 rear exhaust and a 140 floor intake as well. Could also mod another in the cage area.

Any recommendations on a good 140mm fan have been looking a lot and was going to get the Yate loons medium flow http://www.xoxide.com/yate-loon-140mm-d14sm-12.html or the Low flow as many swear by them as a good fan which is still pretty quiet.

Without the side window mounted fan option(if they offer a window panel later may get) would these fans be able to keep the system at a respectable temp with the clocks i am planning on?

Thanks in advance.

[edits] If you're gonna OC the CPU further, no need for more case fans imo.

If it's the GPU, it really depends on what fans you get. Having more airflow is good, but you need something with alot of static pressure intaking air from the outside inwards to the card.

Thanks for the info, so you would recommend possibly switching out the 230's? I had looked at a few bench's on cooling performance http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cas...ossus-review/3

and wanted to bring those numbers down a decent amount while still trying to maintain a low noise level. Any rec's?
