new rig now :) need some halp

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
ok so i gave up on tower again.. moving back to small form factor(SFF aka M-ATX)

so far i have:

E2180 Lapped
2x1GB G.Skill DDR2 800
Seagate 7200.10RPM 250GB 16MB Cache Sata II Hard Drive
PNY 9600GT 512MB

so i need,
Power Supply
Case
Motherboard P5E-VM HDMI or P5K-VM ? or other?


as for cooling it will be a Blue Orb II or my Water Cooling loop which i have not decided if im going to keep or not.


so what would be best?

case,
something nice.. nothing cheap and crappy.. lots of fans are always nice. bigger fans the better.. but im not picky really..

I know it is overkill a bit but $65 seems a good deal. Please discard it if it is off topic.

I like the Cooler Master Centurion 541 if you're on a bit of a budget, but if you've got the cash, the Silverstone Sugo SG03 paired with a Silverstone ST50EF SC would be a great combination. I believe your Blue Orb II will fit in the case as well.

The motherboard is where I'm not quite as sure - I'd say the ASUS P5E-VM would be a good choice, but I'm not sure if there are better boards out there.

I actually have no direct experience with these mATX boards but you can't go wrong with Gigabyte.

it would seem that the p5E-vm hdmi is the best out curently so i think i might go with that.
unless i cant afford i will have to find something else..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131237

though i have an offer from someone for a p5k-vm but i haven't read up on that board just yet..

anyone got any suggestions on a matx case?

psu above cpu? c'mon.. that leaves no room not to mention how bad airflow will be when cpu hsf is sucking and blowing down and the psu is sucking and blowing out.. making airflow very poor for the cpu.

front i/o on right side out in the open. and not on mb tray side.

onyl thing i like about the case is the front intake design which allows for 2 120mm fans to be mounted.. and possible 2.120 rad.. but w/c gets killed due to psu..
