  1. Need help with my 1st build...CPU Cooling's what one guy says on Newegg: Cons: Huge. Kinda difficult to fit on a mATX board Fan and heatsink don't come pre-assembled. Comes in direct contact with memory heatsink AND rear exaust fan but that's probably because I have a tight system. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR A MICRO-ATX BOARD, especially if you have memory modules with big heatsink

  3. Need help with my 1st build...CPU Cooling

    This is my 1st attempt and I'm stumbling to find a CPU fan that will "bolt" up nicely to a GiGabyte G1 Z170MX Gaming 5 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard. Also have Intel i5-6600K Processor. I read of some folks having to buy additional hardware to make their fan fit? :) fun being a newbie!

  6. First New Build

    Sorry, wasn't thinking. This is a rebuild. I'd like to use the PSU I have. This is off a part sheet the builder gave me in '06. ENERMAX Liberty ELT5OOAWT ATX12V 500W io*", Supply 90V-265V (Auto Adjusted) UL, cUL, TUV, CB Thoughts?
  7. Need ideas for a build to start

    I agree 100% but it's twice the cost. I'm a low end single shooter gamer and I've read that the 850 is fast enough. Right now I'm biting my nails with cost as it is. Maybe in the future I can upgrade. Thanks for your support.

  12. First New Build

    Hi all. Because my 10 yr old PC won't support my games anymore I'm forced to buy or build. I have limited tech experience but have replaced some components and am not afraid to tackle the build. Actually excited about it. Question... I'd like to reuse my case. I like it. Cool Master RC-330-KKN1-GP Black SECC ATX Mid-Tower (wow lotta info). Will this MOBO fit, and is it compatable to other components I've chosen? It is 9.6" x 9.6" Present one is 12" x 9.6" I'd also like to add: CPU Graphics Card SSD Replys appreciated. Giggles at my inexperience choice of new components accepted with understanding. I plan on keeping the Sound card I have. Case has 4 fans....well ventilated Stephen
