Work Hard - Play Hard - A mix of office/cad/code/gaming for a college student. I used two cans of spray paint (one black and one white) to make the stars on the side panel and the PSU cover, which was made out of a plastic sheet I bought for <$5 on ebay.
I also installed an NZXT HUE to add some color accents to the black and white. I was going for a universe/nebulae kind of aesthetic.
The name "StarForge" is a reference to the star wars game "Knights of the Old Republic" (one of my favorites).
The idle temperature varies a lot as I live in a desert with a wide delta in temperatures throughout the day. But on average, with an ambient room temperature of ~22C, I get 27C idle and ~45-55C under load depending on what you define as load of course.
As for noise, it is REALLY quiet. With the case fans turned up to max and under full load I can barely hear this thing. The card handles just about anything I throw at it. I get 60 fps on Far Cry 4 with max settings on 1440p and less than 60% of usage from the card. Fan on the card never goes over 50% and is inaudible as far as I can hear sitting ~1 meter from the system. In a dead silent room all I can hear is a low hum, according to an app on my phone... @ 1 meter : 18 dB, @ 0.3 meter : 23 dB
