Hi I'm planning to use this same CPU cooler and case for my build. I was wondering, do you think there's space for a regular thickness exhaust fan on the back of the case? Or at least a slim one?
Looks like I got mine from Amazon, but I just checked and as you said they only appear to have 2x8 and 4x4 now :/ Sorry and good luck!
The real question is whether or not you think you will actually use up all of the SSD's endurance. 82 GB/day is less than the others, but it is still wayyyyyyyy more than most people write to their drive per day. Personally, I would take a 5 year warranty over more GB/day on a 3 year warranty any day. The flash is not the only thing that can cause an SSD to fail and with modern flash endurance, I'd say it should be the least of most people's concerns (then again I'm no expert). On the other hand, consider this post from Puget Systems whom I would consider to be an excellent and reliable source:
Also keep in mind that Samsung (and probably all SSD companies) greatly underestimate flash endurance and most SSDs can probably last way longer than they're rated for. Anyway, that's just my two cents and to each their own! Nice build yo!
Nice man corner dude! And love the build. I'll probably have to do something like this soon so I appreciate being able to look at yours for reference.
The i7 is ~$100 more than the i5 and only adds Hyperthreading which makes little to no difference in most games. So if you're just gaming there's pretty much no point in getting the i7.
I love the orange glow on the sides of the front panel. Is that just from the LED strips inside the case? Also what do you think of the 600p so far?
The pictures are not in the order they were taken. You're right, it was a mistake. I put everything together and then when I was about to close the chassis I realized the PSU was the wrong way so I had to undo a bunch of stuff and fix it. Just another noob mistake lol.
Thanks yo! The mobo's been great. Still no problems whatsoever. I just checked out the MSI board and on paper they seem nearly identical. I'd say just get whichever is cheaper, but if you're concerned with build quality this one's solid.
You're definitely right. I thought about that, but the problem is that there are very few lower wattage SFX PSU's, and none have a 7 year warranty like Corsair's. I guess you could say I paid extra for the longer warranty and modularity.
I checked out which SSD you're using. Mine's just not nearly as fast as yours. That being said, I have seen others on PCPP who claimed 5-6 second boot times with the Trion 150. Definitely something to look into. But in the mean time I guess my parents will just have to suffer ;)
Ah, yes you're correct, I mean to the login screen.
Lol it's complete overkill for this CPU. From a performance or cost perspective I realize that it doesn't make any sense. But given the form factor, my options were somewhat limited. I went with the Noctua because I knew it would be silent and also for the 6 year warranty.
It's not the fastest SSD on the block, but you may be right. I think it might have to do with my startup programs. I'll check it out. Thanks!
Thank you! I hope they'll like it as much as I do lol.
