Is this a good/compatible build?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I had a thread over in the CPU section but I've made that choice and have now compiled what I believe would be a very nice build for my g/f. Please note overclocking ability is not important at all as she will want to run everything at stock *sigh I know

Anyway If this looks good and like everything is compatible please let me know

Ok so here is what I have come up with. Please view and tell me your thoughts. Most importantly if in my idiocy I've paired stuff up together that is not compatible please let me know lol...

Only thing I can think of is the 8-pin to the MOBO. The HAF X is (obviously) huge, and so you will either run short or it will be an uncomfortably tight fit. I was less than a centimeter from not being able to connect mine to my P67, so just watch out for that, maybe order an extension just in case.

Also, be aware that (To my abilities) it is not possible to put a 2nd 200mm fan on top of the case and still have the front SATA 3 ports connected. The connection protrudes right out into the fan space. Perhaps modding of the case plastic could fix this. Other than that, the HAF X is a solid choice.

Good build
