A: What is the case made out of, if its mostly plastic, garbage
B: How many fans can it take / potential airflow. Basically, where are the fans located, how big of fans are they, how many places can the air escape from
C: What can fit into the case. Can it fit a 140mm air cooler, can it fit a Corsair H100, can it fit a massive 7970
D: PSU placement, you want it on the bottom, no questions, you want it on the bottom. That way you cant easily knock over the case because all the weight is on the top
E: Cable mangement. How many holes are there for cable management, and their locations.
Everything else is up to what is needed for the rig.

As for good psu's, check the link in my sig, it contains a very large list of good quality PSU's that is updated regularly, its not the be-all-end-all list, but if it isn't on there, its either they haven't seen it in which case you should mention it, or it shouldn't be on there.

thanks for those pointers and please don't think i am unappreciative when i tell say i just don't get it. i should say, i understand the logistics but as long as it holds the motherboard, fits the suggested graphics card, has places for some fans and has some usb 3 ports what else is needed? you are talking to a guy that has pulled his cases out of dumpsters for 20 years; i kid you not.

btw, i have preused that sticky and checked for what was on there quite bit ago when i started getting active here from another forum.

just a bit of a "link swap" PSU REVIEW DATABASE what i like about that site is it lets you know just how bad the junk is; whether its a PSU shaped paper weight or flaming brick. thumb.gif

cheers

Its no problem, my father was like that until I showed him just how badly his case was hurting his performance on his overclock, you will hit that revelation point eventually, until then just keep rockin whatever your using thumb.gif

PS: Thanks for another PSU page to add to my sig.
