that depends on the quality of the PSU. but yah. pushing it to shutdown limit is bad biggrin.gif i would say maybe 10% on the "rated" power to account for aging is good enough. 20% is overkill.

Compact Splash / 290 x 170 x 310mm / 15.3L thumb.gif

I need to get some kind of light setup inside still, considering white led fans.

Specs are below. biggrin.gif






Super excited to actually have this thing.

I didn't even stop to think about using Splash all-in-one coolers... thumb.gif

Looks excellent, loving the smoked acrylic biggrin.gif

I worded my post poorly. What I meant was Silverstone's next SFX psu will probably be a new design instead of just tweaking the current one so the wattage output will probably be more than just a 50watt increase. I'm guessing a minimum of 550w.

Thanks for the comments, I just replaced my 3570k with a i7 3770k from SLE, and put 2 more corsiar fans on the h100i. thumb.gif

Just a little update on my Q11 rig.
Sold my EVGA 560Ti SC and bought an MSI GTX 660 TF III. I also downclocked my 3570K to 3Ghz since these Gigabyte m-ITX boards offer no voltage adjustment options mad.gif... Anyhow, things are now running surprisingly cool and quiet - which I didn't really expect to be possible in this case, at least with this kind of hardware and cooling solutions.
The CPU reaches max. of 73° in a 25° room while the stock cooler's fan is spinning 2,5K RPM, and yes, that's on the loud side but when in idle and desktop - not really. 64° for the GPU in full stress, barely audible.
Still on the to-do list: Get the Noctua NH-L9i thumb.gif

Before I read the last line I was going to suggest the Noctua L9i. I might also suggest getting the thicker 90mm fan if it'll fit and you feel like shelling out the extra as the cooler comes with screws for it and it should perform better (I did NOT do this but wish I tried it out. I am running with the thin 90mm) I just ran a quick Intel burn test of two passes. My hottest core was 77*C. I also have a thermometer next to me and I am at 25.6*C ambient temps. My specs are similar to yours.

CPU-i5-3570K @ stock
MOTHERBOARD- Gigabyte H77N-Wifi
CASE- CM Elite 120 advanced
CPU COOLER- Noctua L9i
GPU EVGA GTX 650ti 2gb

What is your CPU cooler?

Thanks for the response! I'll definitely give the thicker one a try as soon as I can. smile.gif
I'm using Intel's stock cooler and btw, can you tell me anything about the noise level of the NH-L9i? How's it compared to the 3570K's stock cooler, I mean, can you run that little thing on a really low RPM and still get equal or better results?

EDIT: thumb.gif

I have the cooler running normal and there is NO noise.
