A big fan of this site. I have found almost all my answers by reading this forum, thanks. Now a question:
I have an Asus cm5571 desktop from best buy. Really been a good computer the last year. I bought a Gforce Nvidia gt220 graphic card right when i bought the pc. for what i do, online racing, it works real well. I also added a front intake fan, and rear exhaust pci fan. I read on here about upgrading the power supply, so now i am ready to do that. I am looking into a corsair gs600 ps.
What i want to do is upgrade power supply, add side panel window and fan, install second dvd / rewriter. But, the case is getting cramped. Is it possible to transfer all my coponents to a mid tower? Also, on this asus i really like the front cover, spring loaded door for the dvd drive. Also has a hide away door that has front usb, headphone/mic. jacks, and media card reader. If I can upgrade to a mid tower, can i transfer the front ports or do i have to find a case with them built in? Any suggestions on a case that has a front cover and media ports like the one i have? Also on the specs. of this it says it has built in keyboard LED panel? what is that? Any direction on PS would be appreciated. Thanks

Best solution

Hello, and welcome to THG.

You may transfer your components form your previous unit to another chassis. You cannot, however, exchange front ports at all.

Here are some cases I recommend:

Thanks for the response. I think I am going to use one of those.
