CM Elite 430

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi peeps. I'm thinking of upgrading my case to a CM Elite 430 :http://www.coolermaster.com/category.php?category_id=19 because i'm upgrading my GPU and i don't think my current case have enough space for it.

But i'm having a problem here. Will my MOBO : Gigabyte H55M-S2(1156)http://gigabyte.com/products/product...px?pid=3509#sp be able to fit into the case? As in is it compatible with the case? I'm also going to upgrade my PSU to the E80-700 : http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php...ies/51-e80-700 for the new GPU. Are they gonna fit well together? Thanks in advance.

Both should fit easily, you should probably get a better PSU IMO.

You shouldn't have any trouble making that work. If a full ATX board will fit, so will a micro.

@both

Thanks a bunch.

Might be getting the Seasonic S12ll 620W since it's only a few dollars more.
