Thank you very much. The three-month revision history build uses the white Phanteks which looks incredibly sweet! However, I noticed that you've upgraded a lot of the parts since then. Few questions on that:

  • Is it possible to follow that old build, but upgrade the motherboard and CPU to the ASUS Strix and i5-7500 respectively used in this guide?
  • Would making those upgrades require me (or would it be highly recommended) to adjust any of the other parts?
  • With those upgrades, would the building process be similar to what's highlighted in the video? Again, I'd be a new builder, so I'm really nervous about not having proper instructions
  • Lastly, the compatibility notes in that revision build seemed concerning. Is it a big deal that some of the drive bays would be blocked?

Thanks again for all of your help. I apologize if some of these are stupid/basic questions.

The DUKASE is currently sold out across a variety of retailers. Can you recommend an alternate that works with this build and has room for upgrades?

Also, is this build compatible with a wireless adapter? That's likely a stupid question, but I'm a potential first-time builder, so I'm incredibly nervous about deviating from your guide and screwing up.
