cases, cooling, power supply nad how to put it all together
I'm a newbie at this. never done anything besides installing ram and ethernet cards.
but i need a new computer. and the only way is to put it together.
the way i figure. a case, power supply and cooling are the most imporant parts which i should start from. and then buy the things that are compatible.
how would i go about choosing a case, power supply and fans? and the rest too
thank you very much

hmm ill start you off with the case, psu, and fans..
im really sorry, i dont know any American sites that are any good, but im going to show you the parts I think would be good for you, and maybe someone else can show you them at a american site. but until then,,, this might help you get started
ANTEC SX1040 PERFORMANCE II TOWER With a 400W Antec Powersupply.
That case comes with a very good powersupply that you will be able to use for a while in the furure. It comes with 2 fans.. a bit loud but they are decent. I would pick up 2 more 80mm fans for the case, so you would have 2 80mm fans for intake of air, and 2 80mm fans for the exhaust. This will give you good enough ventilation in your case.
for the CPU... I cant speak for Intel chips, but for AMD CPU's I would go with a SLK 800 heatsink, with another 80mm fan ontop of this, this thing is a beast
Also I would grab some Arctic Silver thermal paste or better contact between the CPU and heatsink.
like i said, i dont know any good stores in the US to buy computer parts, but im sure other people on these forums do, and will be more then happy to help you..

i looked on it. that a little too big. and if i needed 3 more fans $60 each, that's abit too much for a case. i'm just looking for a normal all use case.
is this any good?

well nevermind. thatwas good
but can you tell me if this mb go with this case?

thats a very nice board, 1 gigabit ethernet
but the link to the case doesnt work
May 21st, 2003, 07:55 PM
argh sorry. i managed to misspell even with copy/paste
this is the case:
(it's the first one)
also it says that it has space to install an additional 80mm fan. but most fans for p4 processors are bigger, like 95, or 125. will three 80mm fans do the job for a p4 2.4ghz?
May 21st, 2003, 08:48 PM
well it depends on the fans, if you get some that push a decent amount of air, it will be just fine, if you have a good heatsink for the p4 along with them... and yup, it will work just great with that case

Yuo may want to look at THIS ANTEC CASE as well. Sure it has two less spots to mount fans but it is an aluminum case and they are much lighter and dissipate heat much better than other cases. That 350w Antec PSU should be fine IMO.

They are referring to the fans for the chassis not the processor(s) in use.

thanks for links =)
but will the mb work on that case?

May 23rd, 2003, 02:20 PM
ok =) yay!
but what's a heatsink? and where does it go? i never seen it being mentioned on the case specs? how do i figure the size? does it come with the processor?
May 23rd, 2003, 02:24 PM
if you get the cpu retail the heatsink will come with it, but pretty much any heatsink should fit in the case.. it i will me the mother board that limits the size of the heatsink.. like if there is caps in the way and stuff
