    Best 120mm fans

    Fans last forever, what's $12.99 when you can have the peace of mind that it'll be silently reducing your temps and increasing reliability for years to come :D

    Modular PSU under 400w...

    Just buy the cheapest reliable PSU you can find and cut off the wires you don't need, then solder the ends or seal with plastic caps or electrical tape.

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    Ended up going with the Fractal Design Mini instead. Might try the Temjin if I need something smaller in the future.

    Is it always the best idea to choose Microcenter over Newegg?

    I would say Micro Center. The money you save over having to pay for shipping (especially on large items like cases and power supplies) really makes a difference.

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    Thanks. I just picked up my 2500k from Micro Center with a Maximus IV Gene-Z so it looks like I'll be running pretty much the same setup you are. I don't really care about size, I guess I just like the novelty of mATX. The Core 1000 is tempting as I'm on a budget but no front panel...

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    decently quiet gaming FT03 rig, suggestions?

    Get the Maximus IV Gene-Z.
