Let me know what you guys think, if this stuff synergizes and what not, etc. More about : build put shortstuff_mt October 22, 2009 6:40:59 PM The build will work as-is, but there are a couple changes I would make. First, I would get this cooler instead since it will cool better and is cheaper: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-GP 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve CPU Cooler - Retail $29.99 I wouldn't get an IDE DVD-ROM drive. For $10 more you can get a SATA DVD burner. SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner - OEM $28.99 Don't forget about combo deals. Here's one for your CPU and motherboard that saves you $15: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... I don't trust Seagate drives any more. I would get the Samsung F3 for the same price. SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $54.99 m 0 l dndhatcher October 22, 2009 7:52:37 PM That case isnt very wide (~7.5inches). Im not sure if the side fan will interfere with a 120mm tower cooler or not. The smaller coolermaster TX3 is pretty good for a 92mm cooler and only $20 if the hyper 212 wont fit. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
