Just curious if you need an internal card for wireless support? Could you merely use a USB dongle?

I only say that because there are some things (like a second video card) that you can't get with an external interface and PCIe slots are precious in a uATX build.

The rest is all fine. A lot of it comes down to personal preference. e.g. i like corsair RAM, seasonic PSUs, wd HDDs etc.

I would expect your system to run just fine with that selection of parts.

I read a lot of professional and user reviews for the parts and checked the specs against the case dimensions, but like I said it's my first time doing this so if anyone has any advice or constructive criticism I'd like to hear it before I order the parts. Any help is appreciated!

I would have gone with a motherboard that has built in wifi to free up that second PCIE, but that was already addressed. the cooler you chose is solid (just double check the max height against silvertones website).

Other than my personal preferences (I actually like Rosewill power supplies, gskill ram, seagate hdds) I approve!

Why no windows 8.1 its is recommend for Battlefield 4, and cal of duty Ghosts smile.gif

I looked up the power supply and it is 170 mm in length. The optical drive is also 170 mm long. The Temjin TJ08-E manual contains the following recommendation: The maximum recommended combined depth for PSU and optical drive is 382mm plus 20mm room for connectors. We recommend the largest PSU to be no greater than 160mm deep. Your selection of PS and DVDRW drive leave just 42 mm (1.65 inches) of space between them for cable connections for both devices. The Rosewill PS is a half modular model, with the additonal cables attaching by means of standard Molex connectors which are ~ 20 mm in length. Combining this with the physical bending of the PS and optical drive cables, you might find things a bit cramped between the two devices.

I would recommend selecting a 160 mm PS such as the SeaSonic G-750 SSR-750RM which is $5 more ($130 vs. $125 at Newegg.ca) than the sale price of the Rosewill, but is fully modular, has flat ribbon-like power cables, and is very quiet. This would complement the Asus DVDRW drive which is known for its quiet operation. Another PS choice might be CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 at $129. Like the Rosewill, the Corsair TX750 v2 is partially modular with round power cables, but is 10 mm shorter.

Also, I have the Cooler Master R4-L2R fan and its performance is not very good, but the coloured LEDs look nice (planning on adding a window?). The heatsink comes with a similar fan. I've operated the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO with a pair of Corsair SP120 (Quiet Editions) fans and had good performance with low noise. Note, that to use 2 fans, you may have to purchase shorter RAM modules than the G.Skill ones, but I'm not certain on that point.

Good luck, take your time with build to optimize your cable routing and remember to post some photos!

Finally my TJ-08E build is complete as I wanted it to be... well, almost. smile.gif Details in the sig. smile.gif

Looks like a nice clean and quiet build. At first I thought you had a side intake fan, but I read in your signature that it's a Noctua NH-C14 cooler. You're getting a good 4.3 GHz overclock with the HS fan at only 900 rpm. How much clearance is there above the top fan for its intake? Also, can you tell us something about your audio components?

There's a good 1" of clearance between the top fan and the case side. OK, I just stole my sig from Head-Fi.org and put in here under the spoiler. smile.gif
Let me know if you have any questions.

The cooler you've chosen will be fine. I've got the exact same one in my case - see sig.

Thanks for the help! I've heard bad things about wireless USB dongles (and have had trouble with one in the past), but I might go for a wireless motherboard to free up those PCI-e slots

Thanks for the help! I'll look around for a motherboard with wireless. Any one in particular to suggest?
