Need Help With ITX Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need help. I want to get this case and this motherboard with this ram.

Now I want to get this cooler

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103177

But I have some concerns. So first off will my HX850 work in that case? Second will my current ram work or is it too high? I'll buy the other corsair low profile ram if needed. Now will the cpu cooler work with the low profile ram and allow me to use the pci-e slowt without touching the backplate of the gpu? If the gpu cooler does't work them I need a good one that is low profile and better than stock.
Thanks All!

1) while it is a tight fit, it will fit
2) I'm not sure about that specific ram, but you could get some samsung wonder ram. it's cheap, overclocks well, and best of all, it's low profile (it doesnt even come out of the ram slots)
3)it looks like cooler master has gemini cooler on their stock pics, and they have a huge gpu installed, so i think it will fit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thanks +rep Now will I have an increase of temps on this compared to a standard atx case?

little space for airflow, so i think you would have a bit higher temps. we want a buildlog lol

you change more rigs than derick does lol, but if your mac works w/o no problems, and afaik you're in a boarding school, so keep the mac. otherwise get a ITX build to carry around, when you return, you can always donate a HTPC to your parents wink.gif
