Will all of this stuff fit into my corsair carbide 500r? Annnnndddd any recommendations? Haven't actually purchased anything other than the case and I couldn't return it for a full tower so i'm kinda stuck w/ it. It's a nice case though just hoping it'll be big enough! It seems pretty big.
It should all fit just fine in that case. I have never actually used anything other than a full tower but from the pic I have seen of that case I do not see any problems. I can say that the AMD FX-8350 is a very good CPU I am using one with a MSI 890FXA-GD70 motherboard and that rig is a great gaming system. I also have a AMD FX-8120 on the same motherboard also for gaming. Both of them have no problems keeping up with my 2013 i5 3570K build I just did in January.
