Hey guys, since the B3 Revisions are finally being released I was thinking about making a new build. I wanted to try a microATX out this time around versus the traditional mid-tower fullatx. I've never done a micro build before. Anything different or advice you guys can suggest? Here's what I have picked out:
Qty. Product Description Savings Total Price
1 LITE-ON CD/DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM
1 SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
I think you can leave the AS5 off your shopping list. The CM Hyper 212+ has it's own thermal compound in the accessory pack. It's probably not up to AS5 standards but it's certainly good enough. $10 is a 33% cost increase over the CPU cooler itself.
thanks WR2, I replaced the PSU with a Seasonic 750 and used all the combo links you supplied. It came out to right about $1400 but I feel like it's a solid build and going to go ahead and purchase it. Thanks again for the help!
