Additional Comments: been thinking for this built for a long time, cpu cooler is needed? or stock fan will do the job?... i have read that the corsair carbide 500r has 2 intake fans, 1 rear exhaust fans and 200mm fan on the side and I want to know how man case fans do i have to add to have a great temperature inside my case?

Intel Core i5-3450

Asus P8H77-M LE

500Gb Seagate

8gb G-skill Rip jaws

Asus 24x

Corsair Carbide 500r

Seasonic 560

later addition will be the video card because I want to wait the performance and price of gtx 660ti and its effect on the pricing of 7800 cards from AMD
(GTX 660ti as a gpu card) or SAPPHIRERadeon HD 7850 OC 2GB?

thanks in advance

  5. i was thinking of getting this mobo instead of the one i have choosen above?

    MSI H77MA-G43

    are they any good? MSI?
  6. msi is decent for the money
  7. any brand you can recommend for a board? or a h77 board particular that is great?
  8. ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP.
  9. that also works
  10. dont like the layout of the 8 pin connector of the asrock h77 pro/mvp, its in the left side, maybe it may cause some cable issue management?

    is MSI H77 a bad board?
  11. its supposed to be on the left side

    is ok. very good bios
  12. my bad, i mean on the right side for the 8 pin connector of the asrock h77 pro mvp, its a very far from the right side next to a heat sink? that means you have to cross your cables from the upper leftside hole to ther right?

    I think i will stick with MSI h77? can you agree with me? I'm sorry I'm very noob about this
