I want to make a new build, based on an a Antec P193 case. The stock fans are way to quiet:
Mb MSI P67
Intel I5-2500K (to be overcloked)
16 gb DDR3
Radeon 5970 + Arctic Cooling Xtreme
1 SSD 120 GB
1 HDD WD 2 TB Green
I would advice you to ask to the Antec Technical Support, as the Prolimatech (as most tower coolers) might not fit inside the P193.
My question is: what are the cooling needs for this build?
For what I can understand, basically you need to exhaust the heat: each part seems already well cooled, so you should just avoid heat build up.
1. Replace back fan with an 800rpm one (all other case fans removed, plus the one on the cpu cooler)
2. a) Also put one 14cm - 500 rpm on top of the case
b) Put two 14cm - 500 rpm on top of the case
3. Use also the lateral 20cm fan? But it should be too loud at stock minimum speed. Can be further undervolted?
Does the side fan be an intake? If so, it shouldn't be such a necessary one.
Are the top fans on a straight path to your ears? If so, it could be too much loud. Also, two 120mm fans might work quieter than most current 140mm ones.
An 800rpm exhaust seems a bit on the low side, due to the 5970: maybe a downvoltable 1200rpm one may serve you better (I mean, in order to play safer).
