Specs: windows 8
I am going to be making a pc desk basiclly what will happen is the case will be elemenated from this list because the computer will be made in a case veiw able from a top tempered glass but when i am done with the L desk i will not have really over $500- $600 but if you sugest getting rid of the fan i need them for the vents because there is no fans that come with this like usally cases do if that price could come down a little more than it is at the moment it would be very usful

✔ Best Answer
Dump the aftermarket CPU cooler & all the fans, they're just a waste of money. The stock CPU cooler is adequate & a properly designed case only needs one exhaust fan in the rear. The video card is better suited for an HTPC system than gaming & you'd be better off with DDR3-1600 than DDR3-1333. A 750W PSU is overkill, plus you didn't post the model number so it's hard to tell if it's even a good one - Cooler Master sells a wide variety of PSUs, some are OK, some are complete junk.

I agree with riider, get the following hardware.
HD 7750
HD 6750 DDR3 refurbished

All your components can run fine with corsair 430W unit like this one

"i still need the fans because its not a case you buy in stores"

Please read what I wrote in my last response: a properly designed case only needs one exhaust fan in the rear.

I have no idea what it is you're doing, but if you actually need 4 huge fans to keep it cool, you're probably doing something wrong. Don't be fooled by the so-called "gamer cases" that have fans all over the place, they were designed for suckers.

I used to work in HVAC (over 15 yrs in design, fabrication, installation) & to me, a computer case is similar to a small building. All you need to do is calculate the size of the case & decide how often all the air within that case needs to be removed & replaced, then you can choose a fan (or fans). As a rough guess, the average computer case is approx 1.5' x 1.'5 x 0.75' which works out to 1.6875 cubic feet (CF). For easy math, round it up to 2.0 CF. Using the info you provided, a single 200mm fan is rated at 47.4 CFM (call it 48 CFM). That means that in just one minute, that single fan will refresh the air inside the 24 times, in other words, every 2.5 seconds. Do you really think you need more than that?

I absolutely agree with riider. Drop all the fans except you want to them for show off. Use only good 12Cm fan in the rear. You don't need more because the PSU itself is also function as exhaust fan. Make sure you have air intake in the front.
Your fans seem too expensive; Silent 120MM Red Led Sickleflow or Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm Blue LED are only $7.99.

Spec down the 750W power supply, $430W will do but use 500W just to be safe. Something like Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w or Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt is fine.

Change the Graphip Card, GT 630 is too weak for serious gaming. If you drop the fans and spec down your power supply you will have the fund to buy ASUS HD7750-1GD5-V2.

Happy Gaming
