    My latest iteration for main PC. This time going for a silent computer, still audible when crunching.. but when playing games you can't tell it's on:

    Specs:
    Arc Mini (fitted with Apache fans)
    i3 2100 (to be swapped later for a 2500K I have elsewhere)
    Asus P8Z77-M Pro
    16GB G.Skill Ripjaws (mixed Z and X)
    XFX DD Black Edition 7950
    Intel X25-E 64GB, Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 256GB
    Asus Xonar Essense STX

    That's a really attractive system :toast:
    Why no back fan? I'd think particularly with the i5 it could get hot like that...

    Well, the fewer fans on the case, the quieter. And at the moment temperatures are all looking really good (41C CPU load, 65C GPU load). 2500K may be hotter, but I'll probably aim for a modest 4GHz to keep it cool and quiet.

    I also noticed, your cpu block is kinda angled, I get the same thing with my H100 block, is that an issue at all?

    I don't believe it's an issue, the only issue was getting dtek to send me an 1155 retention bracket for it, but they failed so i'm replacing it with an ex supreme ltx as soon as my compression fittings came in.

    I was gonna wait to replace the rad and fans and whatnot till i got everything but i was concerned about the work it would take to manuver that monstrosity of a radiator into place.

    I had to cut the clips of my 8 pin power conector to actually get the ratiator in without bending the connections on the board... lol, but it fits!!!
