Just wanting advice on where you guys would mount everything and what direction you would put the fans as intake or exhaust?


I'm really pumped for this build and want to make it as nice as i can and cant wait for everything to be delivered if anyone is curious on what else is going in it, heres links to what all else i got:
I7-6700K
Gigabyte z170 Gaming 7, Samsung 850Evo 250 gb
Crucial Ballistix 32gb ddr 4 2400
2TB Seagate solid state hybrid, EVGS SuperNOVA 1200 P2 80+ platinum, EVGA Blue cable kit
Just the led lighting ( nevver had a pc that looked good )

Also let me know if there is anything else you would recomend that i didnt buy? always room to improve!


Thanks before hand for anyone who helps with good advice.

Unless you want to add another GPU, you can switch that PSU for the 750w version methinks ?

You haven't clued us in on the PC's use, but you're building a nice rig, so may as well add a decent monitor unless you've got that accounted for already.

My bad im using it mainly for gaming i play csgo mostly i know this is overkill for that by a crap ton but am wanting to start playing some newer games like the division and h1z1 and anything that catches my eye, as for the monitor i already have a BENQ XL2720Z and a ASUS VG248QE

Maybe a front exhaust pull configuration would be ideal so you can easily clean the radiator without removing any parts, and that way your not blowing heated radiator air into your PC. Then set up everything else as intake to get some cold air pumping into that thing.

To be honest, with gear you are putting in it, I think that case has some seriously limited airflow issues.

I have 2 side panel fans, 2 top exhaust (radiator), 2 front intake, 1 rear exhaust, and 1 bottom intake. When I wasn't using my side panel fans, my GPU was getting too hot. Also hard drives easily overheat without good airflow.
