Have done many builds and in my experience fan placement does not matter, and I would always go with more intake over exhaust as long as all your intakes are filtered. But please keep in mind that there are builds that looked like there is more exhaust fans than intake but its still under positive air pressure, this is due to radiator air restrictions.

For example, assuming all fans are the same within a case, 3 are set to exhaust but its on radiators and 2 for intake with no restrictions = positive case pressure = less dust build up.

There are many factors that also comes into play. Filters, radiators, power supplies (exhaust), hdd cages, fan specs and even having different kind of fans in a case with different specs.

The bottom line is as long as you do some planning and u'll be fine, there are much more important things in PC building than air pressure settings.

In my experience, a general rule of thumb is to set all your radiator fans as exhaust while the rest as intake, you want the components that generates heat be exhausted while the other intake fresh cool air. I personally prefer positive pressure (intake > exhaust), this means less dust because the trapped air will have to find a way out through your case openings which stops dust from getting in. However, make sure all your intakes are filtered, otherwise it will defeat the purpose of having positive pressure

great build, but why set all your fans as exhaust? running on negative pressure will attract a ton of dusts

pretty decent, nothing spectacular, there is no 'static' or hissing whatsoever.

Have not played any Triple A titles on it yet, so far the max temp is @ 50C while on Dota 2 on a 1440p resolution. Card is practically inaudible when below 40C (my settings). So far so good.

I dunno if its true, but I seen posts that the 970 coil whine are somewhat related to corsair PSUs and it has something to do with the power delivery from the PSU to the GPU. There were cases where swapping out corsair PSU for others brands such as EVGA leads to reduced coil whine or no whining at all. Not sure if its true but just a thought

its actually not as bright as you think, its the camera. I'm not sure what you mean by taxes though (I know nothing about tax stuff). This build is done in Australia and prices here varies greatly from the USA. The whole build is actually 3k USD converted.

To be precise, it takes up 2.5 slot because of the behemoth heatsink. And yes, you can do up to triple sli with a e-atx board. But I personally wouldnt advice doing more than 2x sli.

this build is done in Australia, and the price varies alot to other regions. The HOF 980 card isnt updated on pricing, if you look on the parts above, there is no price on the HOF yet.
