Description

My current PC was inside a Fractal Design Node 202. I loved it, but I was scared of any potential overheating issues because my previous PC before that had a i5-4670k was cooled by a Corsair H110i GTX. Going from that to a i7-6700k cooled Cryorig C7, I thought that I would be safe, but in the back of my mind I was worried of overheating the CPU. I wish I took temperature measurements.

I wanted to change the case and decided to use a different ITX case from Fractal Design and choose the Nano S. Change the PSU to a EVGA 650w G1, and the cooler was a Fry's electronics special Corsair H90.

The extent of my gaming is mostly GTA V, NBA 2k17, and FIFA 17. So I don't think that this PC would be super stressed anyways. I do get the occasional hangup from Windows 10 updates. But all in all, I like this PC better now.

The only thing is that the PSU I choose is longer than others, This was definitely overlooked, but I was able to make it work. With the amount of room that I have with this version of GTX 1060, I could have had a 280mm AIO cooler like a Corsair H110i GTX or H115 280mm. But its fine with this setup. Might add a "pull" fan to my H90 for some extra intake pressure. I think I will leave the top vents covered for now unless there is too much heat in my case. For now, I'm happy.

Flip your PSU over. It's sucking airflow away from your GPU and will get hot from your GPU as well.

I thought the same thing as well at first but its a blower card with its fans to the right of the psu, so the card is doing fine but the power supplies airflow is a bit restricted.

You are the first person that I've seen use that card, what are temps and noise like? Your build looks so clean and awesome.

Also while flipping you PSU I'd straighten the cables and zip tie them for a super clean look. Other than that it looks great, and even that is kinda nit picky

As arealtoysoldier mentioned.. flip your psu as both gpu and psu intake air (both fighting for air).
