"old" mobo new case.

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hi I have a a6030n hp pavillion computer and it has a good and fast amd cpu.

I have recently been looking for gaming pc but i don't have a lot of money.


So I bought this videocard and this psu which is great but after opening my hp pavillion case. I noticed it was too small to put the gpu and the psu so I need to buy a new case.

I am interested in this one.

But I need to know if this case is compatible with the a6030n motherboard which i will remove from the old case and put it in the new haf912 case.

I will also take out the dvd player and the HDD and put them in the new case.


So could someone tell me if the motherboard can fit the new case and all the stuff that i need to know please ? Thanks very much.


Specification about the mobo here : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3377275


I am new here idk where to post this topic so excuse me if I didn't post it in the good place. This forum is big

As long as the case supports a microatx board it shouldn't be a problem

because its a "midtower" case for a "micro" board, no biggie, you'll have extra wiggle room, and can upgrade to a larger board if you want later

I've seen many of those boards dying and taking the cpu with them. I would consider getting a new board and chip.

So it's a good thing after all ? I plan to get a new mobo and cpu this summer

I look at the holes in the case and the holes on the mobo and it looks like they're not at the same place. You guys are sure it will fit in ?

You are on the Right Track. The HAF will offer you plenty of room once you get to the upgrade point on your motherboard and CPU. You are choosing good components and though the case will make your motherboard look like a kids foot in an adult shoe, I would tend to always keep the next upgrade in mind when picking out components. It looks like your piece milling a system together at the perfect time considering Bulldozer is around the corner. By the time you opt to upgrade your mobo and cpu, Bulldozer should be out and you will have some nice choices, and the phenom II prices will drop by then.

The ATX case will be much more accommodating to high end parts.

and this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231277

Also Perhaps this case is big enough no ? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16811133179
