    Are these parts compatible?

    I'll post some later on today when I have more natural light :P (it's 4:08AM as of posting this)

    Are these parts compatible?

    Sorry I haven't posted lately! I have to say I am REALLY happy with the end result, and especially the fact that I built it myself (aside from the help here - which is VERY much appreciated!) A quick question though, what is a "good"/expected temperature for the graphics card? Mine is about 46...

    Are these parts compatible?

    The connector I have plugged in has three-pins Alright, I'll take a look :) It kicks on when I boot it (I'm only doing test boots for now), so I'm not sure if I'll come close to the temperature it would need. Also, on the box it says it's thermally controlled, so I'm assuming that means it will...

    Are these parts compatible?

    Got everything plugged in and did a second test boot but got a CPU Fan Error showing up on my monitor, along with a no keyboard detected error (which is fine). What confuses me is the CPU fan is spinning fine, any idea what could cause the error? Also, is the power supply fan only supposed to...

    Are these parts compatible?

    It looks like the first one. From what I've read though, I should be able to unplug the molex plug and just use the three-pin to connect to the points on the motherboard? I also read somewhere that Molex plugs are mainly for plugging it into the power supply (if you don't have enough case fan...

    Are these parts compatible?

    Hey guys! I started the build today and the out-of-case boot went fine! :D I mounted the motherboard, power supply and started hooking things up, but I'm purplexed.. Where do my case fans hook in? They have a 3-pin connected to another three pin which ends up being a 4-pronged thing. I looked in...

    Are these parts compatible?

    Rush processing and next-day. And it's alright, at least I get responses here - other forums have just buried my threads (most of which were simply noob questions, too). And according to UPS and Newegg (not sure if they sink results or something), but the estimated delivery date is 9/24 (which...

    Are these parts compatible?

    I don't think it is, but I'm hoping it is haha. Kinda pisses me off since that's the only thing stopping me from continuing with the build, but what can you do. Edit: Looks like I missed this in their FAQ: "No deliveries will be made on Saturday or Sunday.".. Looks like I'm waiting until Monday...

    Are these parts compatible?

    That's what it looks like. Got the retention bracket ordered yesterday, just waiting for NewEgg to ship it (it's 10:48PM on a Friday night); really hoping to have it tomorrow since I paid for next day..

    Are these parts compatible?

    Are the mounts for the fan supposed to go through to the bottom of the motherboard? Me and my Dad got the bracket aligned, but we couldn't figure out if they are supposed to go through and be tightened down by the nuts. The instructions really aren't clear

    Are these parts compatible?

    I got all of the parts today, but unfortunately the CPU fan/heatsink isn't compatible :/

    Are these parts compatible?

    I don't know if I can get any of putting it together, but I'll try; and I'll definitely post pics after! :)

    Thanks for the info :)

    Are these parts compatible?

    In the future I probably won't be on a 1440x900 resolution, that's my current monitor's resolution. I do eventually have plans to get a new monitor/monitors, it's just at the bottom of the list right now as I just want to get the system built and running right now :) Thanks for the input though...

    Are you talking about this, eidair?

    Are these parts compatible?

    If I wouldn't gain anything, I don't see the point in saving the $500. It could just be a noob-ish thing, though, I'm not sure. I'll consider it, though. Thanks for that :) I knew most of them From what I saw on NewEgg, it doesn't necessarily make a difference before/after

    Are these parts compatible?

    Thanks so much guys, glad I finally found a forum where I actually get a reply - and thorough help! I'll definitely be stopping back here if I need help, I'll also recommend the forums to others as well :) And I should be good with building it, I've seen NewEgg's how-to on it; but if you guys...

    Awesome, thank you so much for the help! :) And I'll definitely be posting some pics and stuff of the build and such once it's done :)

    Are these parts compatible?

    Alright, awesome! :D And I don't think I'll be adding more drives. I already have a 2TB external hard drive, so if I somehow start running out of room on the internal one I can just move some files :)

    Alright :) Also, I updated the first post with everything I have right now if you wouldn't mind reviewing it :)

    Are these parts compatible?

    Yeah, I did mean the SATA data cables haha. So basically the setup is good to go, I just need to order the stuff and assemble? Like I don't need to buy any extra cables or anything?

    Are these parts compatible?

    One thing I'm curious about though is are the SATA power/data cables with the PSU, or do they come with whatever device it is? (graphics card, hard drive, etc) And I plan to run it at stock :) I thought I saw a "quick overclock" in the UEFI bios for the motherboard, so I might try that after I...

    Are these parts compatible?

    I'll eventually upgrade things as new stuff becomes available, but I'm hoping the system will last for 5+ years (though I might upgrade the RAM/video card before then). And so I shouldn't have problems with anything, right? Like I have enough slots for the case fans, everything's compatible and...
