Question about case and mobo

Well, I'm going to be building a new computer for the first time, and i was just wondering if this case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146068 will work with this mobo


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188096 in terms of all the fan headers and fan controller being able to hook all into that mobo


Thanks in advance

  1. I dont know the case , but most fan controllers would connect directly to the power supply .

    Any particular reason you are using a micro-ATX motherboard in a massive full tower case?
  2. Oh will they? well a friend is helping me choose parts and he's an absolute genius and he recommended that mobo because it has pci 2.0 and he explained that I5 2500k Isn't compatible with pci 3.0 so its a wasted feature, i'd like to have a bigger mobo but i cant seem to find one decent enough under 140$. If you have any recommendations i would greatly consider them

    Compatible with the 2500k

    pci-e 2 or 3 depends more on the cpu than motherboard since the pci-e controller is built in to the cpu . If you can get it you might as well have it as an option incase you decide to use the 3570k [ which you can afford if you had a $140 budget for a mb ]
  4. the evga board has 3 4 pin fan headers, one for the cpu fan.

    the blue led according to nzxt site is either 3 pins or 4pinmolex FN-200

    im suprised the evga board didnt put 3 pin headers instead of 4pins.
  5. And just a quick check it will work with this gpu

    i'm sorry but your friend does not know what he is doing. that suggestion alone invalidates any advice he gives. you will eventually want to upgrade your cpu and there is no reason not to have a z77 board. not sure he understands pcie

    go to the new build forum, fill out the form, and get some good advice

  7. He is right (your friend). PCIe 3.0 can never be saturated on an i5-2500k. You need either LGA 2011 or IB to fully utilize it whenever it does get saturated.
