What do you intend to do with that build? Care to justify decisions for parts? Thanks

Positive pressure ftw! Though it might prove a challenge since the top openings are not equipped with dust filters (easily fixed with magnetic ones).

Correct. Bottom slot is x16 running at x4, top is 16x running at 16x.

Very nice build overall, although allow me to point out a few things.

-Although the Sniper series G.Skill RAM is very high quality and amazing RAM, anything over ~1600 MHz for gaming RAM is rather useless. Corsair Value might not look as good but could've saved you ~40$ never noticing the difference.

-At 80$ for a 750w PSU isn't really a steal, when you barely need 450w. Another 20-30$ may have been saved here as well.

-Why did you choose a 'ES' HDD designed for 24/7 servers? You get increased reliability at the cost of speed, when a regular 1TB Barracuda is only about 55$? Again I fail to see the justification.

I feel you for the ATX12V cord. That case doesnt have space at the top of the motherboard tray, which is incredibly useful for cable routing. Don't blame the PSU for poor case design =P

Also wondering why such high end CPU. Intending on doing CPU intensive work?

I hope OP simply made a mistake while doing this list, otherwise as pegotico said it is completely useless to put an aftermarket cooler on a non-K chip.

You could've went with the overclockable chip, and use all that top space for a large radiator, therefore increasing the size of your e-peen tenfold.

Overall: what a waste of a great case. Could've done much, much better.

The two top slots are individually 16x. Changing to the top slot will not change a thing.

There is a lot of nice options out there, here is some suggestions: -Noctua "http://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-case-fan-nfp121300" -Fractal Design "http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fan-fdfanssr2120" -BitFenix "http://pcpartpicker.com/part/bitfenix-case-fan-bffscf12025kkrp"

There is a lot more options as well!

I really like your parts selection. Though I am wondering if you have another fan on the top of the case venting out the CPU cooler airflow facing up? If not may I suggest you orient it towards the back exhaust of your case?

Oh thats odd, initially I saw this Masscool Fanner-420(http://pcpartpicker.com/part/masscool-thermal-paste-fanner420)in the build. The AS-5 is good indeed, but I personally use one that is fairly similar and the NT-H1 from Noctua that comes with the coolers is also very good.

That SSD and wireless adapter have horrible reviews, the thermal paste's conductivity rating isnt impressive and you do not need 16 gb of RAM for gaming (8gb 1333-1600 is plenty).

All the rest looks just fine to me :)

Bottomline: if you are going for an APU build, and it costs over 600$, you're doing it terribly wrong.

You can remove the fans and re-position them the small one should be outside pushing in and the on in the middle blowing towards the back.

I also see no one pointed out you can remove the middle HDD cage to increase airflow, simply undo the thumbscrews and slide it out.

Unless OP intends to do video editing and i5 instead of a i7 and 8GB ram instead of 16GB is unjustified, and saved money could have been spent on better cooler and better rated PSU for this price range.

Comment reply on lurkenhard's Completed Build: First build since 2000

I see its rated 80+ Silver. Also agree on only using a single kit of dual channel ram but OP already said he would prefer using 8gb.

One thing I just do not understand is the full tower instead of a mid. It simply empty just like a miniATX in a mid tower.

That case has a slot for SSD's on the MB backplate, so it is likely hidden since I only see the HDD in the top cage. OP could remove that side panel and post SSD and cable routing at the same time if he wants.

I own the Arc Midi and my roomate has the R4 and we are both satisfied. R4 has more components for running silent although being slightly bulkier that the Arc Midi. Both have great airflow and airflow options.
