thats a sleek case. i have seen comments that the cable management port at the base (for the main psu lines) is slightly out of place (too far back). what did you end up using instead of it?



This one.

The port was indeed a hair too far back for the 1000 watt PSU I wanted to use.

I love Fractal Design.

Caselabs and Fractal Design are my 2 favorite manufacturers of cases. They are clean, sleek, and not cheesy.

Memory is memory.

Anything above 1600Mhz is all the same unless you are benching.

Just get a proven name.

Corsair, Samsung, Kingston and even Patriot are all good to go.

re: New Case for PC Gaming Build.


Memory is memory but for your build and that APU you need at least 1866mhz and it is recommended to go with 16GB. I read up on it a while back. I just posted the links because those Amazon deals have usually been like 60-80% off. It might be a steal later today.

I didn't know he was getting an APU.

Which one? I have just built 1 on an iTX and idk, it is good enough for a HTPC. Make sure you get a K series to overclock. The thing really didn't start to perform decent until about 3.3ghz @ a ridiculous 1.51V.

Oh nice, didn't see you updated OP.

I didn't get the A10, just the AMD A6-3670K. The RAM you purchased I had the 2133Mhz version of Viper 3. Great ram, sold it to purchase the Corsair Dominators.

You can always over clock your RAM if needed.

Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply

re: New Case for PC Gaming Build.


Does this motherboard have the capability of running two video cards? I want to eventually run dual monitors.

Could i run dual monitors with this build using these video cards.

AMD Radeon HD 7750
nVIDIA GeForce 6 Series 6800

I would take the chance with all the sales they have now to get a better vid card maybe.
