post #1 of 6

Everything except the CPU came today.



PSU in, but I just had to order an extender for the CPU power cable.



Case is pretty fat for uATX, which should be good for cable routing.



*** is this sticker on my GTX 750 Ti? I don't recall seeing this crap on my previuos MSI cards.

Are you referring to the little white sticker on that MSI card? Most graphics card manufacturers put those on the heatsink screws so that you don't mess with the cards. Most manufacturers will allow you to use aftermarket coolers, but only after you contact them and let them know.

Yeah I was reading about that last week. Regardless, it's still an SSD, and it was CHEAP for 240GB. I doubt my wife will know the difference biggrin.gif
