So I am starting my third year of Computer Science and need to upgrade from my laptop badly to a desktop so here is my selection of parts:



Vengence C70



Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H Socket 1150


Processor and Cooling


Corsair H100i with SP120-PWM High Performace Fans


Video card

Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Vapor-X OC 4GB DDR5 512Bit


System Memory

Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 2x8GBDDR3 2400 MHz CL11



SSD Intel 730 Series 240GB



Corsair RM Series 1000W


My questions are:


1.Should I go for AF120 Performance Edition fans for the case or the

AF120 Quiet Edition be enough for the front intake, I like my PC on the silent side.


2.Are the SP120-PWM High Performance Fans controllable trough the Corsair LINK software without any Corsair Link Kit, so I can turn the RPM up and down depending on the CPU temp/load ,or do the fans spool up and down by default depending in the CPU temp?


Thanks guys for the help!

If you like silence the AF120 Quiet Edition are great fans, move good amount of air but I would definitely go with the AF140 quiet edition which are better, move more air at less db. So wherever you can fit 140's go with that, for the others use the AF120

Front: (x2) 120mm

Top: (x2) 120/140mm

Rear: (x1) 120mm

Bottom: (x2) 120/140mm

Side: (x2) 120/140mm

MId: (x2) 120mm


Also what are your uses? Why not go for devil's canyon (i5 4690k) or (i7 4790K)

The i5 would save you some money which could go towards a better psu and I would definitely go for the AX series from corsair which is their flagship psu. Your gpu requires a 750 watt psu so you would be ok with the AX760i or AX860i.
