What do you think of this build?


#21

Is probably fine. And if not, you learned a $20 lesson.


#22

A few dollars more gets you the fully modular version of the PSU: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Tc3RsY/seasonic-power-supply-ss620gm2

“For a few dollars more, you can have the ‘Where the hell have I put that Sata cable?!’ experience!”

Nicely spotted, missed that myself.

@stconquest psu is being moved from current build to save money else i would. @MazeFrame haha. also i bought fans from amazon so easily returnable. was just trying to get cheap fans that would work basically.


#25

I had several fans from all kinds of manufacturers die on me. BeQuiet, Arctic and Akasa, to name the noteable ones.¯\_(ツ)_/¯


#26

fans are probably not even necessary just wanted extra airflow. I will have 2 fans in front panel for intake and 2 up top for exhaust. and the normal 1 stock location for exhaust.


#27

is ram clearance an issue(seems like i should be fine because its only 1 fan)? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mJT2MZ should i add another fan to the cpu cooler?


#28

Hehe, you found my other post!

You can just move the fan on the right up (or mount it as pull fan on the left of the heatsink).


#29

this specific cooler only has the 1 fan so it seems it has plenty of room.


#30

facepalms Right… The NH-U15 and NH-U15S
With just one fan, it is fine. No need to worry about anything, you are maxing out the max cooler hight of the case though.


#31

ya its gunna be close but it says it should fit! gunna be tight. should i add a fan to the cooler?


#32

You can still ad that later. I don´t think you are going to need it.


#33

i agree because of the 3 extra case fans


#34

build complete. had to change case bc gpu was too wide(2.5 slot and only had 2 slots). got the Cooler Master HAF XB EVO ATX LAN Box instead. bought 1 too many fans.

close thread


#35

No pictures of the finished machine?


#36

it has terrible cable management bc they case doesn’t really have any good spots for it. also no side panel so cant see through it.
