Hi, today I finally built my new work computer (DAW) and it's pretty amazing, so here you go.Components:
P8Z77-M (Z77 just because of multiple PWM haders)
32GB Corsair DDR3 XMS3 RAM
Samsung 830 120GB
Corsair Force 3 120GB
WD Scorpio Blue 500GB
Corsair HX450W with Scythe Kama PWMCooling:
Scythe Slipstream PWM (exhaust)
I'm using AI Suite (Fan Xpert+) to calibrate all the fans. Fan 2 is PWM fan in PSU, 100% controlled by motherboard. PSU doesn't get even warm under load.
Tight fit between side panel and HR-02
I love this cooler!!
That little hard drive is spinning literally without any vibrations, so I screwed it right on HDD bay, without any rubber grommets and I have never had any problems with vibrations
I'm very happy with resaults, you can hear the hard drive spinning platters from less than 50cm from the case (QuietDrive could eliminate that), but from my working position, I can't say if this computer is running or not. And that's what was the point of the whole build.
I'm really feeling like I'm pushing the limit but if everything stays in safe temperature ranges, I'm happy.
