*How to Ask for New Build or Upgrade Advice*

Hi, I'm in the middle of a new build and may have run into a motherboard- case compatability problem. The case has a couple of connections that don't seen to match anything on the motherboard. It has AC'97 and Azalia connectors. I'm building this for playing latest games coming out and for general surfing the internet. Parts are;


Cooler Master Haf 922

My question is should I choose another case - perhaps from Microcenter- since there is one close by?

  1. That would be the best thing to do and it would give you the opportunity to ask someone in person to help you with showing you the connections and how they work.
    It has been my experience that you don't end up using all of the connections because there is not a lot of use for the 1334 connector and some people don't connect the audio cables because they use the ones in the back. The ones that you do use are the usb and the power and reset buttons and the case speaker if the case has one.
  2. Thanks for the response. I'll head over to Microcenter tomorrow and pick up some kind of a case and hopefully get this build completed by the weekend.

    You may not have to get a different case because the Cooler Master 922 is a very good case , I would just try to get some info on the questions that you have about the connections.

    I just wanted to tell you thanks, inzone, because of your comment, I took another look at things. I took everything out and reinstalled it. I now have a working computer without a trip to microcenter. The front usb does not work but I have an email into Coolermaster about that. Thanks to all who looked at my post.
