I have previously put together a desktop last year with you guys input. Before building it I had no idea about quiet desktops and what kind of build I wanted, however silentpcreview pushed me in the right direction.
My pc config is as followed:
i5 3450 with Samurai ZZ cooler
Glide stream 120mm 800rpm case fans
8 gb low profile ram
HIS passive 7750 gpu (switched from gtx 660)
3tb wd red hdd
Anyway, I noticed that Lian Li is coming out with a new case the PC-Q33
It seems very nice looking and also easy to work with, but what do you guys think about putting the above hardware inside this case.
Seeing that it only has place for 1 120mm exhaust fan and the 7750 being a passive card, I am not sure if it is suitable.
After I changed gpu from gtx 660 to hd7750 the motherboard indicates a temperature of 42 degrees celcius (atm) and the cpu 36 degrees (fans running at 450 rpm and 650 rpm respectively).
With the gtx 660 the motherboard was around the same temperature as the cpu.
The reason I am thinking about changing to a new case is because the prodigy look doesn't really appeal to me too much and it is also quite large.
What do you guys think? Are there any other cases that you would recommend instead that can fit the above hardware.
Its a shame there isn't any itx cases built for quiet computing.
I appreciate any input.
