Looks great! Are you going to purchase another fan to replace the one moved away from the front? I suppose it's probably fine without one, depending on the temps you're seeing.

I never saw the need for active cooling on a hard drive, but my current rig has those fans aimed right at the video cards.

At the moment i have two 12cm fans in. One fan sitting on the side window aimed straight at the video card, i purchased a second one with longer cable and have it sucking in cold air at the front of the pc.

What kind of temps should i be aiming around? What temps are deemed as healthy, average, and then potentially damaging so need a quick shut down?

Haha nice commentary & congrats on your build! Be sure to toke your victory pipe away from your case's fan intake! LOL.

Temps deemed as healthy for desktops... Well depends on the max rating for your components. When I was OC'ing my 2600K, was told to be under 80C max and 70C @ 24/7... Imagine Haswell should be the same +/- 5C given it's max is 105C versus 100C (for SB). EDIT: Scratch that ... Haswell is apparently 100C as well. So under 70C.

For GPU it's quite the same. Keep 'em under 70-80C.

Lower is better of course for longevity.

I didn't see your CPU picked from the prior thread, nor pic (me=lazy). Assuming from the cooler you had on the CPU, if you aren't planning to OC, most likely you won't hit those temps if you have decent airflow. So not really a worry. However once you get her going, let us know what you'll see in terms of temps. Big Grin

Fan comments in general however: yeah, 2 fans are probably enough.. however would think it might be a good idea to have at least 1 exhaust fan... either back or top. I just like to have more fans than needed in the event that one fries, or just plain fails. However that's just me. I may be a bit neurotic. Smile

Either way, you'll be having fun with this build!

+1 to the temperatures said above.

I'd move the front fan to the back or top of your case and flip it around, so that it pushes hot air outside of your case.

I have always liked a positive pressure in my case with two 120 mm fans in and one out plus the PSU fan. I find much less dust gets in the case and instead appears on the inlet fan filters that I regularly clean. My temps still run great.

Moved my fan from the side of my case, its now sucking air from my motherboard and components and blowing it out the top.

Rotating the front fan around so as its pulling in cold air at the front bottom of the case and then as the air warms its pulled out the top by the roof fan.. Might get 1 more at the top back of the case to help pull warm air from around the MoBo...

Not 100% sure on temps, but after letting pc run for about half hour or so, the CPU temp was around 50-55 degrees C. Mobo temp around 25-30 Degrees C.... No idea what it would be like after running for a few hours..
