|Hokay, so I am in the process of building a new gaming rig. |
It's going to be pretty fun, but there seems to be a little
problem that I'm facing in terms of cooling.
Here's what I have:
- CPU: Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Gulftown 3.33GHz
- Power: Nexus RX-1100 1100W ATX12V v2.2/ EPS12V
- GPU: 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 465
- Storage: RAID 10e w/ 4 Western Digital VelociRaptor
300GB 10000 RPM
- Soundcard: HT | OMEGA Claro Halo XT PCI Interface Sound
- Memory: 4x 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
As you can see it's ready to be a powerhouse for
entertainment of all kinds. The thing is, I have built a desk that
I am going to put the entire computer IN, similar to this: <a
gaming-rig-built-into-a-desk">, which means I'm pretty
flexible with the system. And since it's all inside a dark cedar
desk that weights about a million pounds, it can be a little
noisy. I have vents on the side to put in fans as necessary.
Now the issue: It's gonna run HOT. I plan on overclocking,
which won't help things either. Any opinions on cooling? I'd
prefer not to run anything over @ 60c, but we'll see. Thanks!
p.s. while budget isn't the biggest concern, pretend I live
