I would appreciate any comments/advice/suggestions on the following build. Obviously, I want it to be quiet, but also use quality parts.CPU:
Intel Core i5-3470 - Already got this one, and I think I'll stick to it.CPU Cooler:
Noctua NH-U12P SE2 - Please recommend better alternatives, if any.Motherboard:
Asus P8H77-M/CSM Micro ATX - It only has 1 case fan connector, so probably need a different one. How many connectors will I need for this build, taking the video card added heat into account? The case comes with 2 and supports quite a few more.Memory:
G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600Storage:
Samsung 830 Series 128GB SSDVideo Card:
MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB - This one is supposed to be very quiet (SPCR discussion
), but how is MSI quality? Is it better to go with a card the draws heat out (like, I think, this one:EVGA 650 Ti
? Any other suggestions from the linked list or otherwise?Case:
Fractal Design Define Mini
Please recommend a power supply. That's one part where I really don't know what to choose.
Last part missing is an optical drive. I guess they only make noise when working, but if there's something you'd like to share...
Thanks for reading and any answers.
