i have had an M14x for a few years and love it, so i got myself an X51 for the man cave.
Time to play.
gtx 970 (overclockers blower version)
had to remove the front fan to get it to fit.
500gb samsung evo 850
1tb hdd removed
removed the dvd drive for cooling so i thought id put a fan there to help.
noctua 120mm Fan (amazing fan so quite)
didnt like this grill when it came
As the cpu fan draws and exhausts at the rear of the case and the gpu has the blower also venting to the rear of the case, I set the fan to draw into the case to try and create positive pressure. ill give it a week like that then spin the fan for a week see what the temps tell me.
