Personally, I'd go for the two 140mm intakes + an exhaust. Once again, these 30 series GPUs run very hot, as Bruce suggested though, it's not as though you can't add more down the line.

When I build a gaming or heavy duty machine, especially one that can use PWM fans (variable speed), I like to go a little overboard, temps + performance are far more important to me than noise, but you may think different.

All in all you have a really good starting point, and if you ever decide to change things that's perfectly doable.

+1 for what Bruce has said again. Taking 10 minutes to read through the manual will answer a lot of questions before you even have to ask them. And if for some reason the answer is not in there, that's what we're for. :)

One of the best ways to learn something is by doing, having put your machine together gives you the ability to pull it back apart easily when you run into issues some day.

Absolutely I agree 100% with both of you :)

I built some PCs, but we are talking about 20 or more years ago...

I am collecting and restoring old game consoles but it's a different story.

Just a bit worried about the CPU, I have to be careful when I assemble it.

Hi @Bruce I think this thread can be considered solved (I don't know how to do it) as next week I am going to buy the parts in the last configuration.

If I have any problems during the assembly I am going to open another thread :)

Thanks again!
