Nice build. But i think you would get the most out of your system if you had Scythe 1200rpm or 800rpm fans running at 800rpm. And you should get a scythe quiet drive or a good HDD... made a worl of diffrence too me.

Well i have the Noctuas instead but the scythe are almost or just as good.

Simply amazing. Any reason u taped of the top vent? Why not use it as exhaust or intake? why not have any intake at all? Shouldnt u have like more exhaust then intake to get negative airpressure or whatever its called?

After you've been here a while, you'll probably see that there is no "best" anything when it comes to computer parts, and more specifically quiet computer parts.

Yeah i got gready... But then again its not a loud system and im not ever likely to be able to run on 100% on all cores and thats what was needed to get the temps to 68-69... on low fan and airflow.
