HFX Classic vs. Streacom FC 10

Post by Seeking Silence » Thu Sep 19, 2013 6:03 am

Would like to know which one of these two cases will provide better cooling for the following components:

CPU: Haswell 4770S
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO (or any other fanless MB)
Hard Drives: 2 Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB SSD's
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) - if they will fit
Video Card: PNY VCQ450NVS-X16-PB Quadro NVS 450 512MB or any other fanless quad video card that would fit.
PowerSupply: Will Pico Psu work? Open to any other fanless PSU
DVD Drive: Any DVD-RW will do.
Media Card Reader: Would like one but can do without.

The computer will be used as a workstation for backtesting financial data using Multicharts.

Will the HFX Classic cool these better than the Streacom FC10?
Which PSU should I get? The video card above requires a minimum of 350W of power. Does it mean the Pico PSU is out of the question?
The video card above is not designed for small cases, so if it wont fit, I am ok with any other one that will, provided it is fanless and runs cool and stable.

I need to make sure the system runs cool and is stable at all times.

Thank you
