Hello,

I am building a new rig and intend to use my current PC-60 Plus II.

The major components of the new rig will be:
i-7 2600K
Asus P8Z68 V Pro or Asrock Extreme 4
Corsair Vengeance Blue CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B
EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Superclocked 1024MB (01G-P3-1563-AR)
Samsung SpinPoint F3, 1TB
Crucial M4, 128GB SSD

Based on the vast experience of the members of this forum, please can you advise me if the Lian Li PC-60 Plus II case is able to handle properly the necessary cooling requirements for the configuration mentioned above?

Thanks in advance.
Oswaldo

Looks like it will be fine and it will definitely be fine if you're not overclocking. From what I can tell it looks like a nice case. Only thing is it won't have a 2.5" bay so you'll need a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter for your SSD.

Also, I'm sure you've done plenty of research, but I can't help but mention that there's no benefit in the i7-2600K over the i5-2500K in gaming until they start coming out with heavily multithreaded games.

Thanks Danraies,

Yes, I have to install a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter.

I forgot to mention two pieces of information:

-PSU: Seasonic 650W or 850W or similar.
-The main reason for the i7-2600K is the FS X. It is quite clock demanding and the HT on the i7 is also helpful.

In principle, I do not want to OC and that's the reason I have not selected a third-party HSF.

Cheers

Ah, yeah, then the hyperthreading will be nice. 650W will be a good sized power supply for a single 560ti, but if you want to upgrade to a 590 or add a second 560ti later it probably won't be enough.

Either way, though, if you'er not overclocking then your case will be fine with air cooling.

That's a good case but if you're on a budget you can definitely find a nice mid tower with good airflow for around $50.

Also another ugly thing about my case is I had to remove my door fan to fit my Cooler Master Hyper 212 :( 


That's a good point actually. I had the same problem - I had to go with a 92mm hsf to keep to keep my door fans. I used this one:

It works great. If you're not overclocking then the stock fan is fine, but the stock fan on the 2500K is also really loud, so you might want to switch anyway.

Thank you all for your replies and sorry for being late in coming back to the forum.

I am kind of addicted to the LL cases. The first rig with the PC-62 and the second with the PC-60 Plus II. Probably, I will have another LL for the third rig, the one I will assemble this month.

I went to the LL site and found two interesting cases:
PC-Z60

PC-9F

From the Lancool side, the PC-K7 (suggested by p07h34d) also looks very interesting.

I still have to do some "homework" and take into account the tips you have been providing to me. Thanks again.

I wish you all a nice long weekend.
Cheers
