Hmm, I see your point.. 750TX it is then!

But then again no one answered my earlier questions regarding 932 advanced case fans - no of led fans, no of fans controllable, which controller to get etc smile.gif

Ok Guys, some pointers needed....
I need some good tutorials on how to build a pc. it should be somewhat detailed enough.. like connections on Motherboard.. Order of building components, connecting psu cables (which cable where).. If its with help of pictures it will be great.. Also welcome are any video.. I tried to find on Internet but couldnt find any comprehensive stuff..

I know you guys might have done this hundreds of time.. but such guides/pdf/video tutorials will help me very very much! smile.gif..

The build is pretty going but you should change the psu for like hx or ax from corsair ( or off course other brand )

and the cooler you can get better in my opinion , like a noctua one

building a computer is just like lego, you cant mess up . for exemple : if your gpu need a 6 pin connector just use a 6 pin connector smile.gif

you can ''inspect'' your component and know in 2 sec where and how to put it. Btw dont be scare, the component themself are not super fragile ( like I though during my first build ) I played for like 1h with my gpu trying to do a antec kuhler mod and its still working perfectly smile.gif

but ofc if you dont feel like doing it without any guide, you can check youtube where there is TON of video for how to build a computer.

I was checking out the manual for Asrock z77 extreme4 and I came across this information :

"You can choose to use two of the three monitors only. D-Sub, DVI-D and
HDMI monitors cannot be enabled at the same time. Besides, with the
DVI-to-HDMI adapter, the DVI-D port can support the same features as
HDMI port."

Can it not support three monitors? I know its silly but still biggrin.gif

It boosted my confidence when I saw Lego mentioned tongue.gif.. I think you were there in that situation smile.gif

post #36 of 134
well I built my computer like one week ago. Man I was stress to be honest cause of the antec mod for my gpu mostly . But It turn out to be super easy and fun . And of course WAY cheaper than like alienware or another compagny for the exact same stuff maybe even better .

My suggestion to you would be : built it on the motherboard box so if something doesnt work you wont have to pull it out of the case . And youll be able to see what you do better if its not in the case. And ( wow I said it so many time 0o ) when you able to turn it on correctly just get it in the case biggrin.gif

btw a mistake I did : dont forget the 6 pin connector at the top left of the mobo , I forgot it so I was stuck cause of that smile.gif
post #37 of 134
Can I suggest you another case than HAF 932 ?

the Coolermaster cm690 advanced is around 60$ ( you can get it a around 45$ with rebate ) and Its in my opinion a better case than the haf 932 and way cheaper .

If you want you cant put like 3x 120mm rad + 1x120mm , good cable management , you can use 1x hhd without having to use big hdd cage ( something I really like for airflow ) , and look super cool ( depend on your taste ofc) and the 70-80$ you save can be use in like a sound card or else thumb.gif

@amadnei - yeah getting there smile.gif .. I have downloaded asrock z77 manual and reading it .. It is more than useful than I thought !!! Giving away lots of information..

For the case, my last build ( which was done by Shop mechanic) I had CM 690 II Advanced case smile.gif so this time I want to go with something other than that .. I would blindly suggest 690 to anyone ! But thing is my budget is $100 to $150 only for the case wink.gif

Wouldn't you use the output on the graphics card, not the mobo.

Coming to the case ...question for modders - may be newbie question smile.gif

I saw on motherboard z77 I had only three connectors for case fans . What if I decide to replace the side 230 mm case fan with 4 X 120 mm fans how would I connect that to motherboard .. Or best case if I take a fan controller how does the connections work . From fan controller to motherboard to fans .. It's confusing for me frown.gif
