I know PcPartPicker says the CPU Cooler is not compatible but I THINK it will fit - Unless it hits the heat sink/shield near the IO shield. (I liked the color combo/price).
I know the PSU is over kill, but I might get it, so I can get a free game. Shrug
The Case comes with 3 fans and has room for up to 10 fans (depending on size used). I listed 5 because the "5 pack" is not available on the site (and I forgot to make a custom part). I was thinking adding 2 to the bottom and maybe 3 on top. Or just have extras in case they start to die in 5 years.
Thanks for looking over my parts list.
I was looking at the Tiachi BEFORE this post, but the SLI/AC model has most of the same features. I can afford the upgrade...
WiFi: Actually my router is in the same room but I'm tired of running a cat cable across my living room and my USB wifi adapter is very basic/cheap and probably not good for gaming. Yes I've used my PC on a recliner for years using a trackball :)
USB Card - I forget when I bought it, but it's a USB3.0 card because my Mobo is so old USB2.0 was a "feature" on it.
PSU - I'm open to options for semi/fully modular
Case - I'm still looking, but that one really caught my eye and finding good/cheap/modern cases with 1 or 2 optical bays is harder.
edit: What makes the G.Skill you recommended $30-40 more than the other brands/types?
Thanks for the tips.
PCIe + WIFI & Mobo Size:
I do have a 5x USB3 pcie card I want to reuse and was confused if modern boards can fit Double slot GPUS and TWO pci cards (1 for USB and other for WiFi). Do any of the pcie wifi cards include bluetooth (I haven't checked yet). I have no intent to use dual GPUs...
I was considering the Gigabyte X470 Aorus Wifi 5 or Wifi 7 but the reviews are mixed (aren't they all) and the AsRock was cheaper than the Wifi 7.
RAM - I'll keep the Gskill in mind. Trying to figure out "compatible" RAM on AsRock's website was giving me a headache.
Thanks for the Intel build/game info.
I guess I wasn't clear. I haven't played WoW or any PC games in about 5 years...
Thanks those will give me more to think about.
