Is ram compatible?


Will case work with the fans that will be included? do I have to order more fans? if so can you point to a link?

why do promo codes not work with newegg if ordering multiple items? better to order promo items separately rather then bulk it up?

I see no one replied your post yet. I'll see what I can do then...

The parts seems fine and should work.

The cheaper RAM can work if you decided to get it. It's just (insignificantly) slower than your first choice.

I don't know about Newegg's promos. Sorry...

You'll need a better CPU cooler if you plan on overclocking your CPU. But for standard use, the default one along with the CPU is good enough.

Thermal compound is another name for thermal paste. And yes, you definitely need it to distribute the heat to the CPU cooler.

Anymore questions?

You have a EIDE CD/DVD drive on there. You want a SATA...not an EIDE.

I didn't see any CPU cooler, just thermal compound.
