Tahan la... U hav d tracking id d? You can check where it reached. Im thinking using Corsair CS650 as psu. Dont know any problem with the cable. I considered sfx silverstone but find it expensive and read many issues wit it. Any opinion? I dont think i will get full size gpu card.

Yeah..arrived at malaysia dy but pending post.

The problem with full atx psu is it will take space of the gc..so your option is limited to 10cm length gc i think.

The latest one v2 sfx psu got no problems i heard. But yeah quite expensive.

I suggest you buy the mini itx gc..but the fan quite loud under load.

my spec is

- i7 4770k with cooler master Nepton 120XL (super tight fit,will replace with other aio)
- sx600g psu v1.1 sometimes got those coil whine but i dont care lol.
- stock cooler titan x (max 85 degrees when playing games.super hot.will replace with kraken g10 and h55)

overall quite satisfied. the cables are messy but i guess it worked for me biggrin.gif

I got a cheapish Seidon 120V with only a fan pulling, satisfied with it and thinking of going full air with NH-C14. You didn't use both fan on the Nepton did you? just wondering 2 fans can fit...

well i make it pushing outside my case so the hot air will not remain inside. now i have two (2!) aio in that case (nepton and h55) damn it was tight fit. probably will change all of that to air cooling.

definitely 2 fan (push pull mode) cannot fit. in theory you could do that by modding the case but it will be fugly.

i too eyeing the noctua cooler to cool my cpu but will do it much later.

I see, I suppose your setup will be quieter compared to fully air? My NV reference cooler is really loud lol.

Im not sure about the quietness cause my environment quite loud so i guess my setup is not that quiet. My psu sometimes making some noise but only for a moment so not bothering me much. This case is the most challenging case i come across. But worth it smile.gif

Lol i need to wait about a week to complete this rig. Fortunately lazada had all the parts that i need n i get it cheap biggrin.gif

Changing the psu fan? possible but it will void your warranty i think.

Goodluck n hv fun bro smile.gif

Nice temps! My CPU around 65c and GPU at... ref cooler temp LOL. Can you put another 3.5" HDD below that GPU?

What did you get from Lazada?? I thought the site jack up the price and bring it down looking like discount.

Skylake! worth the wait I guess...

Yup,before this i put my 3.5 inch hd below the gc. The temp quite scary tho (idle at 50 degree lol). Change to 2.5 inch and mounted it at the front and im a happy man biggrin.gif

I bought the corsair h55 (price after discount rm156), silverstone sfx 600watt (price after discount rm446) and bunch of casing fans noctua brand at lazada. The catch is you need to wait for this items..like a week or so.

Your cpu temp using stock cooler?i guess with case like this you need an aftermarket cooler. Rm200 can get very good cpu cooler already.

Yeah..skylake...very want to buy but no money lol

Yeah, before I move my 3.5" to the side panel, it was like 60C while on gaming! I guess I'll get a 2.5" too once I get my hands on the NH-C14.

I'm using Seidon 120V for my CPU, 65C @ 4.2GHz while gaming. I'm pretty sure NH-C14 cannot match that.

Those are pretty good price you get from Lazada, guess I need to keep an eye on them more often now. Thanks for the tips. Any idea what's the RMA policy?

Ah..65c while gaming is good i think. But mine rarely like that unless playing project cars. What game do you play?

I think you need a lot of case fans to pair with the nhc14, so that the hot air is push out more quickly. I suggest 2 90mm fans intake below the case and 1 90mm fan exhaust rear of the case.

Luckily i dont need to rma my items yet but what i know is you need to send back the item to the seller to rma. You dont contact lazada for this. The seller contact can be found on the receipt/invoice so make sure you didnt lose it.

Sorry, wrong info. That is if fan on full speed. Usually doing 72C at comfortable speed lol. Playing BF4.

I already got 2x 120mm intake below my case. Thinking of just the 2x 120mm at the side panel for intake after getting the NHC14.

Which HDD did you pick up? I'm thinking of a 1TB Hitachi 7200rpm to supplement my current 0.5GB SSD, but I don't know how reliable are they, or Seagate/WD/Samsung.
