New rig built by Nereus (husband).
For a mini-ITX case, the Corsair 250D is very well thought-out, and no problem dropping in a 120mm radiator with push & pull fans in the front.
The be quiet! push/pull fans on the radiator are the only fans used in the case, and it runs very quietly - idles slightly over 30°C with ambient room temp at 77°F.
The rig sits inside a modded desk with a grill installed at the front for air intake and a bunch of exhaust holes in the back and sides at the rear. Seems to work well. The last photo is a gif showing desk door open/closed.
Fire Strike score 15,699 with everything set on stock specs.
The Corsair 250D case normally has a flat front panel. I purchased the custom front panel (with all the holes in it) from MNPCtech.com
- much better airflow as a result.
Awesome little mini-ITX build, even if the GPU is starting to get a little dated now (GTX-980Ti SC).
