Hey, I am nearly done my build and I have a question about case fans, here is my build:
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40GHz (Ivybridge)
Sapphire radeon 7850 2GB
asrock z77 extreme 4 motherboard
XFX Pro 650W Core Edition '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply
1TB Western Digital caviar black 7200rpm 64mb cache
Corsair XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (CMX8GX3M2A1600C11)
Cooler Master Elite 430 Windowed Case
the case comes with an intake fan at the front of the case and I was wondering if I will need any more fans as there are other slots where they can be placed, I am not going to be overclocking my CPU for a long while as I am new to this.
I saw your case & just HAD to make an account to tell you - I have the case & I'd ditch the front intake fan. It's loud, even when idle, and the fan really doesnt do much, I've had my PC hit temps of 60C easily recently. So before you start getting more fans, replace the intake but after I'd say get a Aerocool RS12, very good quality and dead silent.
