Noisy Beast is Coming!

You may remember that I built the World’s Fastest HTPC in 2011. I admit that it was quite noisy under load, but now I’m building a Noisy Beast!

New Testing Platform 2013 & Extreme Overclocking x3!
Overclocking an Intel Core i7-3770K (changed to i7-3930K) 🙂
Koolance FAN-12038HBK-184 fan runs on 4600RPM (211CFM?)

New Testing Platform

Update:
I changed my mind, I decided to buy Intel Core i7-3930K and it does not require removing the IHS. All other elements remain unchanged: Coollaboratory Liquid Pro + Corsair Hydro Series H100i + 2x Koolance FAN-12038HBK-184.
