I Need Help As Soon As Possible Knowing Wether Or Not This Set-up Will Work.

Case: NZXT Phantom 410 Midi Tower Chassis (Comes with three fans)

Proccesor: AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition CPU, Retail Packaged

RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B 8GB 1600Mhz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Module Kit

Power Suply: 650 WATT Power supply Alpine Black 650 WATT Silent Quiet PC ATX PSU

Disk Drive: LG GH22NS 22x SATA DVDRW Drive

Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB 3.5" Sata-II 3GB/s Barracuda Green Hard Drive - 5900RPM 32MB Cache

The main problem is that i cant find a motherboard sutable for this type of proccesor, slots for three fans that come with the case and one that does SATA II hard drives.

It would be massively appreciated if someone could help me find one within the price range of £50-£150 from a know website such as amazon, ect.

also if you find one and everything will do exept the motherboard does SATA III instead of SATA II , that will be fine, i can make the changes.

Yours Faithfully
Jordan

The PSU is horrible. You can get a Corsair CX 430 for really cheap, $25 after rebate. I would suggest that instead.

CD Drive - I would take the Asus 24x instead. It is the best drive in its class.

Motherboard - This should work - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Fan connectors - The above board has 2 in addition to CPU_FAN and they don't get much more than that usually. If you ned more fans than that, either get fans that connect to the PSU directly or get adapters that connect them to the PSU.

im not seeing any video cards and hes right that psu is terrible .. might last a year / 6 months .. lol and while that hard drive is large you might want to look at a 7200rpm drive.. very noticible speed difference .. its like putting a laptop hard drive in your computer... lol any AM3 mobo should work as long as its not ATXL ...

could i sugjest that maybe you try socket FM1 if you dont have a video card to add to the system yet .. you would be better off that way.. while the 965 is a good processor ... the intel 2100 is way better and costs about the same .. but the socket fm1 processors with the 6560D gpu will work with intergrated graphics on your motherboard for a hybrid crossfire setup .. but its very dependent on system ram

Much appreciated, about the fans, the PSU you suggested, would fans be able to be connected to that and/or could you list some adaptors i could buy :D

All of the NZXT fans I have worked with had 4-pin MOLEX adapters built into them, you should be ok there.
