    Finally done

    Thanks to the people on THIS THREAD for their help. I am seriously considering buying a few cable mods for the AIO and PCI-E cables. Wish I just spent the extra money on the 360 instead of the 240. Only problem I am having is iCue will not save the lighting for the AIO, but it does for the ram. Think it may have to do with it running from USB. Need to look into it more. Also added 5TB Toshiba 7200 drive.

    New or upgrade?

    OK, Parts are ordered. I took some advice, but did go with what I thought would be best suited for what I was looking for. I would like to say thank you to all who helped. And the reason I went with that MB was the features and color. I am trying to do as much white as possible.

    Thanks for the replies, it is helping making the decision. Though probably not what the wife wants to here.....

    New or upgrade?

    I am wondering if the 2600x would be better for just $15.00, or just the 2600 and OC it. I assume they are the same exact thing, but the 2600x just has the better silicon and the clock speed is auto'd at 3.6. And I cant find what the differences are with a B450 vs an x470 are. other then $5-10..... Anyway, I like the list, may give it a serious thought. Oh and maybe 30-40 more for fans, as the Lian Li is more suited for water cooling and saw that hardwarecanucks did a test with different configs on this case. And the PC I currently have will be going to the kids. And Pesk, I have a Crucial 500gb SSD in my current build with a 468gb HDD for storage.

    New or upgrade?

    I am stuck with a question of whether to upgrade or start a new build. I had originally was going to do a new build, but now I am leaning towards an upgrade for now. With the PC market recovering from RAM and GPU supplies, and in its current state, I think waiting is the best option. My build was an AMD system at around $1200 or so... or an upgrade at about $250. I know that an upgrade is only prolonging the inevitable( exactly 1 year from now). Lets get down to stats. And my current GPU is fine for now, I am not an elitist, and as long as it looks decent and runs a game at 40+ FPS i am fine. Current Build GA-990FXA-UD3 AMD FX 6100 OC'd to 4.0 GTX 1050 TI Corsair H60 CPU Cooler 12GB (3x4gb) PNY DDR3 1333 750w PSU Older Thermaltake. Upgrade to an FX9590or FX8370 with Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) 1600 and maybe upgrade the AIO to the H100 or. AMD Build With the new build I am not sure about the RTX2060 for now, or the M.2. So that will save me some money. And before anyone goes off with "stop being so cheap"... well this is a hobby, and I am also buying a used car for myself. I also am just like the other 95% of people that have other bills, and don't live in my momma's basement. So yea, I am gonna be "cheap" and look at the best options for myself.

    Case suggestions

    Thought about it, but then I think of shipping cost for a used product. I am leaning towards the one of those Thermaltakes... but its a huge bitch.

    Case suggestions

    I liked the looks of the Corsair Obsidian 900D, but can't find any. I have spent a few hours and am pulling out my hair(whats left of it any way). Never thought I would spent this much time looking for a case. Thought I would be stuck on a PS. Here is what I am looking for. Budget= $300 USD for a case(give or take a few bucks).And No to the Phantek! Must have bottom rad support ( semi separate from main space preferred). Tempered glass side( front doesn't matter). Must have a HUGE space inside. Back support for 3 SSD's (or mounted nicely inside) No bays anywhere near the front of the case. Fan support is negotiable, as I will have a custom loop, so I wont need 10+ case fans. The case I currently have is a very old Thermaltake Armor Series VA8003BWS, and I like the size, just not the drive bays. OLD CASE 22.05" x 8.66" x 20.87" The more I am looking, I may have to either spend 700+ or go with one of those Thermaltake 900 square modular cases.
