Compatibility Issue?

Hello,

I entered the listed into PCPartPicker website and it stated that I have a compatibility issue such as the Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.
Is this correct...

  1. Yes, it is correct. The HAF 912 doesn't have front panel USB 3.0 ports. It's nothing major. There aren't that many devices out there that even support USB 3.0. If you need to use USB 3.0, you can just plug the associated device into the back of the PC where the USB 3.0 ports are.

    Ok. Thanks. Was not sure if I have to cancel the build and do research on case and motherboards that compatilible.
  3. No problem; and good luck! :)
  4. most good mb vendors will have in there mb parts kit a usb 3.0 to usb 2.0 front header converter cable. where you can plug the front usb 2.0 ports into the usb 3.0 mb ports.
  5. Ok. Thanks...This is my first build so I am little on edge and want to make sure I have all my bases covered. Should I included a SSD drive in this rig?

    Current Build List:

    Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing
    Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX LGA1155
    Kingston Blue Hyper X Series 4GB 2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333
    Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM
    PNY GeForce GTX 650 2GB
    Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower
    Thermaltake 600W ATX12V
    Asus BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS Blue-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Write
  6. i have a ssd and it does make the os load..run faster. i get stock 1600 ram for the ib cpu. the older sb would use the 1333. i look into low profile ram. some of the ram that has tall heat pipes dont fit under some heat sinks. if this is a gaming rig i get a smaller hard drive and use the money for a faster video card.
  7. What's your budget? And what games do you plan on playing with this rig?

    And no, I wouldn't include a SSD in this rig. They are luxuries; not a necessity. You need to focus on getting a quality CPU and GPU first. This is what is going to determine whether or not you're able to run a game on ultra settings or on low settings. SSDs merely affect load times.
