Okay, just thought I'd update you guys, the parts are picked and are on their way but any temperature management tips would be splendid! I've made a
few changes, mostly to accommodate my comfort on my first build especially in the cooling department. Not going liquid cool yet as I just don't want
the paranoia raining over my head everyday. I know some people might say "it's not as scary or risky as you think" but I'm just not comfortable to use
one just yet until I know how to maintenance these "maintenance free" components. I'll list my final rig below:
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4GHz Quad
Motherboard: Asus Z170 Deluxe
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 32Gb
SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 500Gb x4 (Raid 10)
- Mainly for the assurances
HDD: WD Black Series 4Tb
Cooling: Noctua NH-D15
- Read a lot of reviews and this has been the top choice for many who've opted air instead of liquid.
PSU: Corsair HX850i
- Decided I didn't really need 1000W
Case: Corsair Air 540
- Thought the extra room and improved air flow space would be a good start for me
Monitor: Asus PA238Q 23"
Read a lot about temperatures and that 65ºC is a good temp to keep it as but have no experience with voltage and fan RPM especially for that model so
anyone with a similar rig would be massive help!
