Silent operation and performance for 144hz. Seems good enough right?

I love it, especially the case, it's my kind of thing. But since it doesn't have a window I'd rather put Noctua fans there, you can't see them anyway and they are better than AC. I used to have an F12 PWM in my old PC, I bought it after being impressed by their GPU fan, and I can tell you this is definitely not the same quality bearing. But with 4 of them you'll still have plenty of airflow even at sub 1000rpm, they won't make any buzzing sound at that speed.

Oh, and why not get a Freesync monitor, now that Nvidia supports them?

Thank you for the feedback, yes it seems a good idea, i did not know Nvidia supported it now!

Reduced cost, better M.2 solid state storage with longer life span and lower price.

Better PSU (quieter)

I can grab Noctua's down the road if it runs louder than i want, Noctua are very expensive.

At 144 hz..do you actually want to take advantage of it at all times?
