I've read good things about that RAM. Hope you are going to try and overclock, and will share the process/results with this thread. Good luck!

The case finally arrived and I think I'm going to start the build tonight! I cannot wait any longer. thumb.gif

Thank you for the feedback. I definitely will overclock it and I will share the process (along with my results) in this thread. I'm going to add it to the last chapter along with CPU and GPU overclocking content. smile.gif

The box reads that it only contains thermal paste, but I'll check it out after dinner. It's there. smile.gif

I ran into a problem. I have two HDDs, and I am trying to figure out a way to throw them into the case. However, Mountain Mod's HDD cage that comes with the case occupies a 120mm fan slot. I don't want to lose a fan because that might prevent heat from leaving the case.

Does anyone know of any way to get the HDDs in there? I am thinking about using the space between the PSU and the front of the case. That's just my initial thought.

Not familiar with your particular case, however, have you looked into mounting it sideways (like they do with SSDs these days)?

That's a good point, but if I mounted it sideways I would have to drill a hole into the case in order to allow that orientation. The case, as it is, only allows me to mount the HD racks on the 120mm fan.

Another idea that I had: I can get long screws and mount the the HD rack to the fan, with the fan mounted to the case.

It boils down to drilling into an area where I'll have free space (need to determine if I will have that space -- going to sketch out my build first to see if there is going to be space) to mount the HDD vertically (I'm sure I can find a spot) versus the long screw solution (combining the fan with the HD rack). I can't decide... I'm going to sleep on it and hopefully you guys can help me make a decision. I'm a bit tired and frustrated right now. tongue.gif

I'm going to the hardware store in an hour to purchase various screws for slight modification and HDD mounting. The screws that I got in the morning from the store was just a bit too long so the HDDs shifted too much.

Lunch break right now before I go full throttle on the build.

TBH, HDD's look the best when mounted sideways.

Maybe mount your SSD elsewhere, and your traditional HDD in the SSD spot.
SSD's are much easier to play with & mount, considering there are zero moving parts.

Don't bother with screws. Use Velcro. You can even get Industrial Strength Velcro. Get some Velcro pads and you won't have to drill any holes.

 

Also, see my sig.

Or 3M sticky tape, did not think of that!

Heck, some black zipties may even do!
