I also bought the Silverstone small flat cables, in total the whole lot cost me somewhere around £550.
The main purpose of this PC is to be an emulator box running Hyperspin, emulating Wii games and below, I plan on overclocking the CPU to around 4.5-4.7ghz.
I have a few questions regarding the build:
1. Do you think its possible to squeeze in another 3.5" drive somewhere?
2. I've been reading that I might have difficulty getting the H55 cooler to fit in the case with its default fan, does anyone have any good fan recommendations that will allow me to fit the H55 cooler in?
Thanks a lot for reading, looking forward to hearing what you think!
