I'm still waiting for Samsung to deliver their larger EVO SSD's to the UK before I can even install my OS and overclock it etc but with the pump at 3/5 and all the fans on its barely audible.

Once I've got it 100% up and running I'll post a video like Magic did but its whisper quiet right now

Old silverstone front panel switched for a USB3.0/internal SSD mount
Also the HDDs mounted with a Sharkoon 1000 rpm fan giving them some air flow despite about to be covered up. (40mm between fan and back of drive bay covers)

Next step is a backplate for the the GFX card and some interior lighting (not just yet though).

And noise video for @Magic

Open in YouTube SD | Open in YouTube HD (when available)


The video actually makes it sound a lot louder than it actually is but I guess that is the difference between a Mic and your ears.

Well, CPU was 275, Mobo was 255, new RAM (just for looks) was 85ish. The rest I already owned so really I just spent a **** load on waterblocks/rad/pump/res/hosing/braiding alone was nearly 60 from Germany and the fittings were 8 each and had to buy 10 plus two 90' bends which were 13 each. It all added up quickly and then the SSD was a 300 splash and dash.

LOL If i'm lucky January, AMD new GFX cards are out or being announced in September so thats 2 weeks it was future proofed for but It's still higher end than any current or 'next-gen' console so I'm happy and its easily upgradeable.
