built this pc out of spare parts i had for a friend who wanted a pc for music creation had to buy the case the comrade was the cheapest windowed case i found
Good build, but you might want some more memory for integrated GPU. +1
Bad pics and A10s are just useless. But maybe this was cheap.
So freakin shaky
U call ASUS 188X-pro spare?...how rich are you?
For an APU you need a fast RAM, i would suggest 8GB 2133 (and you will use a lot more of that APU than now)
Nice potato +1
Good Potato, Nice Potato Such WOOW
Might want a larger HDD
can someone help me? will this case be able to fit 2-3 gtx 980's in it?
If you can get 2-3 gtx 980's might aswell get a better case. I dont think it will fit them, depends on your motherboard aswell though.
Has your friend since added a dedicated GPU to this system? If so, how does the Zalman cooler on the 7850K perform? I am asking because my stock cooler sounds like a jet engine after adding a GPU to my build.
sorry for delay only just see this ,that zalman cooler is great for the money i got it in another pc too on a a8 6600k and thats paired with a r9 280x i also bought the next one up for another build thats really big and cost the same as the evo but twice the size both i would recommend
Thanks for the reply. I bought the cooler and unfortunately it does not fit my rig because MSI decided to put the CPU socket way too close to the PCI-E slot. The lock down clamps on the cooler are too big and my GPU gets in the way. :(
Oh. Forgot to ask if yours was rough at the base. My cooler came with rough heat pipes at the base. When I placed it on an even surface it was a little wobbly.
cant remember any problems with the base. you have a mini itx board so things will be tight but im suprised it wont fit did you remove the graphics card then fit the cooler an then refit the gpu
theres a couple of coolers that might better suit your motherboard and a link to a toms post about small case coolers but i cant be sure they will offer any more clearance than the one you bought im sure that must fit its the same latch the stock cooler uses
Does this case have any space behind the Motherboard ray for cable management purposes?
yes but not much its a budget case
Used to have the Comrade
There's always that one twelvie
