More about case airflow
  1. Are you planning on using any liquid cooling or just air?
    By 'full size' do you mean it needs to just hold a standard ATX motherboard or you want a big, full sized tower to hold a lot of drives?
    What parts are going into the case?
    would you like something restrained or showy?
  2. I didnt mean to pick it as the answer i just wanted to reply but i dont plan on liquid cooling just air i dont care what it looks like and just 1 (maybe 2) hard drives and this is my build http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/nLzPP6

    thank you
  3. No probs, I've deselected me as the answer, the thread is once again alive!

    Most mid towers will handle that build very nicely and I've a soft spot for the Corsair Spec 03 but any mid tower with dual intake and twin top exhaust fans will keep that build nice and cool without getting too loud.
    Trouble is there are billions (or so it seems) of cases out there and each has its pros and cons, suggesting one is virtually impossible so I'll just suggest you look for a case with...Well, dual front intake fans (140mm for quietness) and twin top fans (again 140mm for quiet) with a look you like..
    You will need to purchase extra fans, few cases come with a full compliment, Corsair, Phanteks, Noctua, Noiseblocker and Sythe make good ones-although there's plenty of others-again, it's a virtual minefield with so many possibilities.
    Upshot is: There's no need to have a system that sounds like a 747 on takeoff just to keep things cool.

    One off topic point: Why a 60Hz monitor? That system really deserves a 120 or even a 144 Hz display

    You sir are a gentle man thank you for deselecting you're answer and thank you for the case help

    and in the case on the monitor it really depended on what i could afford my budget also i had to buy the parts off amazon because i live in ireland and no one else ships over here and if they do it costs alot of money
    Anyway thank you for all the help on everything

    No probs, mate.
    Like I said, there's just so many cases out there that suggesting one is virtually impossible, so, here's some I prepared earlier ;):
    This one is a little drab but has good ventilation https://www.overclockers.co.uk/antec-vsp5000-silenced-tower-case-black-ca-240-an.html
    Classier and a little more showy: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/be-quiet-silent-base-600-midi-tower-case-orange-window-ca-101-bq.html
    One I know well: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/corsair-carbide-series-spec-03-mid-tower-gaming-case-cc-9011052-ww-ca-172-cs.html
    And Finally something a little bolder: http://www.amazon.co.uk/NZXT-Phantom-Orange-Stripe-Chassis/dp/B007XCQKC0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1451326208&sr=8-3&keywords=nzxt+phantom+410
    All these are well regarded but each has its own character, they all have good ventilation, certainly they'll cope with the system you have in mind with ease.

    OFF TOPIC ALERT! https://www.overclockers.co.uk/aoc-g2770pf-27-1920x1080-tn-freesync-144hz-1ms-gaming-widescreen-led-monitor-black-red-mo-033-ao.html Yes, I know it's not Gsync, but it'll do 144Hz and I like mine-for a TN panel its surprisingly good, and I'm used to the 'better' IPS type panels.
    Note, the above is just something I feel you might want to think about considering...And they DO ship internationally AFAIK ;)
  6. What a lad, you really don't know how much this help means to me thank you
