More about this case
  1. whats the full specs ur gonna be running?
  2. http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/z0Gm here you go plus a radeon 7850 1gb
  3. Not 100% sure what you are asking, but the motherboard needs 2 separate power connections.
    There is a 24pin connector (right hand edge of the motherboard you linked), and a 4pin connector (top left corner). Some motherboards use an 8pin version so PSUs come with a connector that fits both, does the same job.
    Cables should be long enough but occasionally depending on the way everything fits together they can come up quite close.
    Power is sufficient, though it will potentially limit you in terms of future upgrades.
  4. Oh, if you haven't bought the components yet, give the CPU a rethink. FX6300 is around the same price and should give you a solid performance boost.
  5. oh ok i will think about it and what you said in the first post i should buy a new psu because the connectors are in diffrent places or what because its detachable 4pin so that's great but will it work 100%?
  6. and what i mean is are the 4 pin an 21 pin connectors long enough to connect to the motherboard if my case has a psu slot at the bottom of the case?
  7. It's not detachable as such, it splits. I think you are confused about what cables go where.

    Motherboards have two power connectors, on separate cables.
    One is supplied by a 20+4 connector that looks like this -


    One is a 12V supply that requires a 4 OR 8 pin connector. Most PSUs provide this -


    Both of these need to be connected.
    Length of PSU cables is rarely an issue, but issues can arise if your case has an elaborate cable management system.
  8. my case has elaborate cable management system but i dont have to use it i an juz connect it straight to the m/b and thanks for ur help
  9. im confused but hope someone can help u
  10. Basically i want to know if this psu cables are long enough to reach the motherboard connectors?
  11. what ps do u own?
  12. None yet but im buying this look at the first post ! http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu430cxv2
  13. looks good but is ur budget bigger. as id recommand a 550 watt for more headroom if u can afford it.
  14. hwo much would that cost and could you just give me a link with gbp?
  15. I think this is the best entry level PSU in the Uk right now -
    http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1450sx2b9
    XFX Core 450, £37

    Alternatively, if you want the potential for higher end graphics cards in the future (that require more than 1 PCIe connector), the XFX Core 550 is £48

    There is nothing wrong with the Corsair units, but without the rebates the Americans seem to get on them most of the time, they are priced similarly to the XFX and offer less power and quality.
  16. whats ur budget adrian?
  17. my budget is 300 pounds for the build and about 120 for gpu so 420 all together
  18. so what do u need in all a full system?
  19. what do you mean everything i have given a link in the first post here you go thats all im going to have in my pc plus optical hard drive and a 7850 http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/CBct
  20. sorry missed that.

    will do u justice better

    no need for 6cores.
  21. oh ok thank you really much and this will last me a long time do you think? because i want the processor and m/b to be good so i can have it for about 4-5 years and then build a new pc
  22. and also i can see that the 4pin connector is at the top of the m/b and my case has bottom mounted psu and do you think the psu you gave me will be long enough to connect it?
  23. yes it will. most games barely use 4cores. and i got u a solid mobo and processor. i would of recommand 6cores but doesnt fit in ur budget.

    u can always upgrade to a 8core down the road :)

    4cores is plenty and u can overclock it to 4.5 with that cooler :D
  24. what case u have?
  25. and could you give me a pcpartpicker list for a 8core pc i want to see roughly how much it would be and what it looks like thx :D
  26. budget?

    considering u havent bought the pc yet
  27. i have changed my budget to 200-250 without the gpu and case and optical drive so please give me a very good build which will play good games and also last long :D
  28. whats ur full budget for a full pc?
  29. i have the gpu and the case so all i need is psu,gpu,cpu,ram,hdd so for that i only have 200-250 pounds left as im a teenager and don't get a lot of money
