that would be a dog to work with

Thanks. I started to think that after I downloaded the manual, but thought it was just me and my lack of computer building experience.

I like Fractal Design, Silverstone, Lian Li and AeroCool. The last two are the most expensive and just seems like paying more for nothing. The Corsair cases are nice, but are so big that the miniATX becomes pointless. The leather clad aerocool would be an impulse buy.

I have all my parts now , if I built in the Sony case, other than the front wires a) not being long enough, and b) being grouped in a way that is sony proprietary. That is way beyond where I feel comfortable. I was going to do a cool design behind the translucent front and then backlight it on the sony, but splicing wires in electronics... I am not going to practice at the risk of that new mobo. ;(

I keep going back and forth on it, the sony completed disassembled on my drafting table. I look at it and sigh. I have a stand-in computer running as I debate with myself.

and, right back out. I folded. The new power supplies breathe thru the top/bottom. My old buddy did not. Once it came to cutting holes, it was over.

I found a case that I was able to see in person a few times. It is not Corsair quality (I never did see the others in person), but it is better than most, smaller, wider with cable management, comes with two 120 fans installed.

Cooler Master: N200


$44 local

The build starts tomorrow!!!

case is totally fine
coolermaster fans suck the balls of a mongrel dog - you'll see, they are noisy and their specs are not factual

at some stage, get some noctua - stupidly expensive, but the only fans that never fail. After today, wish i had never swapped my noctuas over for trendier looking noiseblockers - hate fixing pc shit - pulling out one fan meant all sorts of other "jobs" to get to the fan, and then all back together again. total pia

days like this you are glad you have a tower case.

you'll appreciate the extra room inside the N200 when assembling

My dog likes it.

Is there a way to fire up the fans before I build it?

After figuring out there were several benefits to a new case over the one I have, I was just ready to move on with it, TigerDirect only stocks a few micro cases, and this one seemed to fit the need.

they tend to be a little noisy, however you'll be able to quieten them down by reducing their rotational speed via the motherboard bios.

Some people are more sensitive to noise than others. If over time they start clicking to the point that you find it annoying, you can replace them.

New build on 4/6/14 using the following;

Asus H87M PRO
Intel Xeon 1245 V3
Seasonic G series PSU
Patriot Viper Extreme 16GB RAM 1600mhz (2x8 in A2 & B2)
Crucial M500 120GB SSD
Windows 7 Professional

All drivers (asus mobo disc) and windows updates (160 + ) are installed, but it will power down unexpectedly, as if the power went out, and then restart itself saying it did not shut down properly. It tends to do it while executing some task rather than when idle. It took many restarts to get the updates finalized.

Occassionally, instead of cycling as above, the monitors will all show horizontal multicolored lines over top of whatever is on the displays, in which case I have to force a reboot.

I have ran several benchmark and performance tests, and everything looks good (cpumark 10k+), but it just is not stable.

I have tried reconnecting all cables onto the motherborad, running on a single ram stick at a time in the various slots, the problem does not change.

How can I troubleshoot this to determine which component is causing the issue, or do the symptoms suggest something in particular? It seems like a short, or the psu is failing momentarily?


What is odd to me, is that the PassMark Performance test did not crash it, but things like opening certain items in the Control Panel will.
