I found a Jeantech Aqua case at my old job. I got the case for free and has older stuff in it which ill probaly replace totaly. The mobo is a Asus m2n-SLI deluxe, i might keep that, but Im thinking starting with this case will save me money. And give me a chance to learn during my first build. Are there any unseen problems i might run into using an old case such as this?? thanks
Yea i want it to be a gaming rig, it has athlon x2 in it, and a 1000w silverstone PWS, no bugs or droppings just dust. You think i should stick with the mobo tho? It looks fine i checked for any damage anywhere it looks brand new. and I knew the kid that left it behind he was pretty into gaming, so i think he took good care of it. whats the best CPU I could slap in there? If Im good on the case and mobo I have more money to spend!
I dont need the rig to be blazing fast or anything but Id like it too be very fast for surfing and normal activities and moderate gaming rig. Also I want this to be and exp builder for my next rig which I plan to drop in some money.. Down the line of course
Yes you can. Just looked through the manual ( I used to have this board, its at my parents now). You can put the new BIOS on a flash drive and use an update utility from within the BIOS. This is what I did a couple years ago. You will need the latest beta BIOS 5001.
