More about what guys build
  1. What is the budget and monitor res?
  2. res:1920x1080 and budget is under 1000
  3. You won't need to SLI for 1080p ever.
  4. ok but other than that is everything good?
  5. For $10 more, get the HAF 912.
  6. https://www.shoprunner.com/free-shipping/cozi/

    *why am i advertising*

    free 6 months shoprunner, makes the whole purchase shipping free and 2 day shipping. you can use the extra money to buy a better case.
  7. how about with a transparent side window?
  8. Idk of any good ones as I prefer no window.
  9. the reason why the question was given is that usually cases with windows on the low end spectrum of price have bad cable management because they didnt install a cable management system to cut cost.


    i recommend this case though
  10. hmm ok ill consider the haf, but whats wrong with the elite 430?
  11. oh ok what do you think about the nzxt m59? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146058
  12. Ive done research between the Hyper 212 Plus vs EVO, and Ive heard theres practically no difference, 1-3C diff if any.
    Ive read people that can oc to 5ghz on it, I doubt from the ranges Ive heard, but 4.5ghz seems pretty do-able.

    For me the Plus was 20-25, and the EVO 30-35$

    Up to you, you could probably replace them without worry.
  13. it has the basic cable management holes so im not going to argue too much about it

    the only real difference between the two is the fan thats on it.
  15. Also, if you live near a Microcenter, their CPU's are priced cheaper (i think to get people to buy all their other parts there so they get retail profit off them, tho their parts are usually the same prices)

    I got my i5-3750k for 190$
    Its 50$ off any z77 mobo, and I got the Gigabyte z77X-UD3H for 85$, normally 150$ everywhere else. check newegg, its 150$ there. Microcenter usually sells their Mobos cheaper even if you buy it seperately.
    But check different sites, for me Tiger direct has no tax but pricing is not very competitive, Newegg offers alot of rebates but sometimes Amazon is cheaper and sometimes not.
