Hi Guys,

I am currently looking to build a new PC. My old macbook pro laptop is still great, however it doesn't have the power or compatibility to do what I need. I'm also looking to check out the new windows 8 operating system and I actually do quite like it.

One of the reasons for the switch is because I enjoy pc gaming, I am not a hardcore gamer and that's all I do, I will sit down and play games on my nights off or when it's pouring rain and there isn't heaps to do. I play many games from the past ( age of empires, Patrician, The Settlers, Dawn Of War, Old Grand Theft auto games and I also like to play newer titles like Battlefield 3, Assassins creed & The Witcher. I also like my sport games too.

i love the idea of building my own PC, however I don't consider myself to be an extreme enthusiast and I'm looking to build a solid Ivy bridge rig. I also do some video editing on this PC for personal not for professional use. I am aware of HAswell around the corner and after reading the benchmarks, I am deciding to to build on ivy.

I was originally going to buy a brand new iMac although, I have built systems before but never with these sort of capabilities. I'm thinking right now, get a Fractal Design R4, Throw in a Gigabyte Ga-z77-ud3h, 670, a good sound card, blu ray player, a h60 SE and 16 gb of Ram and get a solid system running. I'm not into big gaming cases or flashy boxes that light up. That's why this case appealed to me. I just want to build a reasonably sized powerful ivy system with enough power to kick the current games asses.

I use a dual monitor setup, but only because it's more productive for me. So Obviously I'm still gaming on a single monitor.

Would you guys reccommend an R4 for the uses I've suggested above and how big is this case? Because I had the corsair 600t and it was simply put way, way too big.

Cheers
Have you considered going Micro ATX? They are just as capable.. smile.gif

Does anyone have the NZXT Hue installed in their R4? Do the knobs on the Hue control panel prevent the front panel door from closing?

Thanks!

I'm not entirely sure, but you could always push the control panel back into the drive bay a little so its recessed allowing more clearance for the knobs. That's what I would do if I had a knobby control panel for a 5.25 bay device.

It doesn't prevent the door from closing, it will however touch the foam on the door, and leave a little bit of a mark on the foam.

Anyone know where I can get the Adjust 108 in the US?

Just a quick question, what did you use to create that blanking plate for the drive bay?
