Computer Case + Other stuff?

Hey all i had bought this

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3424772&csid=ITD&body=MAIN#detailspecs

case online yesterday, this is my first time trying to build a computer myself and buying all the parts, it says it has 5 140mm and 2 120mm fan ports. Do the fans actually come in the system or do i have to buy them seperate and if i do should i buy 7 fans at those specs? Also if i need to buy those fans do you guys know any red/black colored ones that you would recommend with good reviews?

One other quick question is there anything i will need when putting all this together that may not come in the box of all these parts i bought? I pretty much bought everything off of newegg/tiger direct

Thanks so much in advance! -nate

  1. Hello Nate,

    In my shopping around most cases do come with stock fans and I would image this is not exception. Just by the description alone however i would not expect the 7 fans to come with it stock, maybe 2-4 fans included.
  2. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    The case is one of the best that you can buy, good airflow and space. Comes with 5 fans, and you can install another 2.

    I have a TT V9 and is great IMO, you must buy the case.
  3. the mobo and psu will come with all needed cables to assemble, and the case will come with everything you need for instalation. you dont really need to buy anything extra, just the components themselves.

    looks like a very good case though.
  4. Thanks for the info, i'll hold off then on buying some fans and see how it goes, do you know if i'll need anything else for this system that im building? Something that maybe doesnt come in the boxes that is needed like a cpu cooler (or does that come with the cpu?) or anything? This is my first build so im not exactly sure what im doing, the specs are:

    Evga x58 sli classified x58 socket LGA 1366
    Intel core i7 950 3.06ghz 8m LGA 1366
    corsair dominator gt pc12800 ddr3 1600mhz kit
    thermaltake tr2 1200w psu
    wd VelociRaptor 300gb 10000rpm
    Diamond 5870 1gb 256 radeon hd
    Sony optiarc 24x cd/dvd rewritable
    creative labs x-fi fatality champ PCIe
    windows 7 64bit ultimate
    and the thermaltake armor case

    Id hate to think i have everything and be left out on something, im kinda paranoid when it comes to those kinda things, i basically bought everything off of tigerdirect and newegg. I watched a video about some kind of thermal gel being placed on a cpu, do i need to buy that or it comes with the cpu or something? Ive known most of the basic parts inside a computer but never tried to peice anything together except the video and ram from upgrading, any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -nate :pfff: (im such a scrub i know lol)
  5. Oh thank you! i just posted alittle to fast on that one, appreciate the reply! -nate
  6. NP.

    looks like a very good build. the PSU is overkill, by a huge margin. but it will work, so its your choice. (you could get one half the wattage and still have headroom for expansion)

    i dont know about the i5's, but usally the heatsink that comes with a CPU has TIM (thermal interface material) pre-apllied, so you dont need to worry about that unles you are buying an aftermarket cooler (and most of them come with a tube of TIM)

    putting a pc together is actually very simple, the manufacterers make it very simple, and usally include more than enough cables for everything.

    i just found your post on build and found it interesting, because i'm doing something similar. here's my plan:

    EVGA X58 SLI Classified Motherboard, Core i7 950 3.06 GHz
    12GB RAM, 1600MHz Corsair Dominator PC12800
    Thermaltake Armor Water Cooled Case + PWB 100 Water Block for LGA1366
    Custom built Locking Caster Wheel Assembly for Case
    PC Power Silencer 750W Quad Black PSU
    RAID 1 Two Seagate ST32000641AS Barracuda XT HD - 2TB, 7200 RPM
    Plextor PX-B940SA Blu Ray Burner
    BFG GeForce GTX 260 overclocked video card
    NVIDIA 3D Vision Glasses
    Acer GD235HZbid 23.6" 2ms Widescreen 1080p 120Hz LCD Monitor
    Logitech Cordless MX 5500 Revolution, Rechargeable Laser Mouse, Keyboard
    AVerMedia MTVCOMG2W AVerTV Combo G2 TV Tuner
    Andrea PureAudio full-duplex USB SoundPod Soundcard
    Hybrid Samson Airline 77 wireless microphone
    Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64BIT Operating System
    Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking 10.1 Pref Speech Recognition software
    KnowBrainer Univoice software
    Microsoft Office Small Business 2007
    Linksys Wireless Card


    i've gone with watercooling and it's up and running now ... still waiting on Acer monitor, microphone, and software, expect to have it complete early in May.

    the watercooling is very impressive! 25C to 28C on idle and 34C running super Pi bench mark. i'm on disability and dependant on speech recognition. had to have machine shop prep aluminum plate with caster wheels 'cause i can't pick it up; the machine shop was outrageous, but i needed. the plastic feet come off and aluminum plate bolts on with outrigger caster wheels. i have pictures but don't know if i can post. i'm new to tom's hardware.

    velociraptor seems excellent choice, but i had to keep costs down going to RAID. how do you backup?

    have you overclocked? speech recognition is cpu intensive. have you tried speech recognition with the creative soundcard?

    i would be interested to know anything of your experience to date with your system.

  8. 120mm Fan Ports: 4


    120mm Fans Included: 1


    140mm Fan Ports: 4


    140mm Fans Included: 1

    Detailed specs from your link.
  9. Having just joined Tom's Hardware, I'm not yet good at interacting and using this.

    I do not yet know where to load computer specs to my profile. Looks like you've got water cooling, the TV card, good graphics and so forth. I'm getting help on the build as my manual dexterity is getting bad.

    Not sure what you're asking or just making comment. Thanks, I'm learning.

    I was replying to the OP. He was asking how many fans of what size come with his case. I clicked his link that led to tigerdirect and clicked detailed specs where it revealed that it comes with 1x140mm and 1x120mm.

    So I was in effect answering the OPs original question.
  11. OK, makes sense.
    Thanks
  12. Also comes with a 230mm sidefan :) mmmmmmm fans :)
