  1. There is a FP USB3.0 header above the SATA ports, right angle, on the Hero/Formula. On the Impact, it's below the 24pin ATX.
  2. I'm assuming it's the old version. Since you'll be replacing the CPU too, I'd personally change it to something newer, although it's really optional. It'll work even with a 3900X.
  3. Probably was just an oversight. Wasn't the best unit. Early units had non existing OPP. Was later resolved, but there's no exterior manufacturing date so you can't tell the difference.
  4. That's the new one. You can tell by the label colour. Blue = old, gray = new.
  5. It's supposed to be perfectly flat, or close to that. Here's an example.
  6. That case looks SEVERELY bent. Try getting a refund.
  7. a psu isn't just a box of capacitors. it might be deserving of one lower tier because of issues other than this, but just because they're using something like elite caps doesn't mean it's automatically garbage
  8. Nope $750 MSRP, when it beats the 16-core HEDT chip from Intel IIRC.... Poor voltage regulation, and considering it's age I'd get a new one. That SSD is pretty overpriced. Get something cheaper like a HP EX920.

  10. What PSU do you have? Might want to upgrade that as well, considering it should be quite old at this point.
  11. Even if the answer was a hard no for AMD, it would be better because of the 3900X and 3950X already anyway.
  12. For some reason, I read that as virtualization. In that case, most gameplay emulators won't need the full 8 cores, as a lot of consoles aren't as powerful. Go for the 3600. It looks like nothing you do would warrant a 3700X upgrade. Yeah, that one is pretty good. Comes with 3000 series support out of the box, too.
