  1. what would happen if I download the on/off charge drive for my z170 hd3p motherboard? would it mess with the currents of the red usb port? and what about the others? check link below http://www.gigabyte.com/MicroSite/185/on-off-charge.htm
  2. So it seems the cheaper cases don't come with swappable expansion slots, instead they come with punch out ones, which i HATE. i had problems fitting my 750 ti in an aerocool gt black advance, and the retailer wouldnt take it back, also i had to pay fo the return fee which was 7 euros. so instead i sold it and lost 6 euros. But therefore i would like to ask if u guys know a good quality case with the good expansion slots and cable management options behind the motherboard. please keep the price under around 50 to 60 $, since here in the netherlands everything is around 20% pricier. ATX b
  3. So my power suply : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-power-supply-fdpsuin3b450w has the full 8 pin pci E, but the cable I need to put in the PSU, which is a white cable only has 7 connectors, is this normal? this also goes for some peripheral cable that need to go into the PSU. There are 6 pins in the PSU but only has 5 connectors in the cables. thnx
  4. sorry guys, but it seems it does fit a little, but the hdmi port and display port aren't aligned in the middle of the slot, it's pressed against one side of the pci slot. i'm still not convinced it will fit in this case, even screwing in the screws was a bit hard, i guess it's you get what you pay i am getting another case anyway
  5. i put the pictures in the last post please look at the pictures, the board can't be not fitted correctly since all the screw went in without a problem
  6. this is my build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CRLTGX and the case is an aerocool gt black advance yeah i got a i5 6500 so integrated graphics and i got a key and download file from dreamspark i need to put the files in iso format on bootable usb and put it in my pc, but it says multiple editions, so i downloaded the windows 10 help programm and created a bootable usb with that but i chose windows 10 not N or Home, Pro wasn't even an option. but can i use the offical Microsoft windows 10 help programm to create a bootable USB or do i need to use the files Dreamspark gave me, and w
  7. So after buying my pc it seems the pci lanes from the mother board are not aligned with the case pci slots, where you are supposed to put in the card. so i still need to get a new case but now i want to install W10 on my pc without the graphic card in the motherboard, can i safely install W10 and add my card later? does it have to do with a serial number or something? also, do you guys have ever heard of DreamSpark? i have a key but it's for the mulitiple edition, does this mean it's only for pro or home or what is it exactly? i also still got an old laptop drive which i would like to
  8. i couldn't find much on the internet, except for the gigabyte website, but what does this RED USB port actually do? how many Amps does it deliver?what are it's limitations? what can i connect and what not? MOBO: http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5495
  9.

Thnx again for all your help guys. i'm just having a final check if everything will be working well with eachother.

  10. Everyone has something against the CX series but i still don't get that, where do you guys get that from? every single review about them even on johny guru is well reviewed as a good PSU
  11. Is this a good PSU for this build? Since everybody is complaining about the cx series(which at pcpartpicker everyone is happy about) i had to change it, so is this fractal design one good?

  12. how about this one = Storage: Kingston HyperX Fury 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($54.99 @ Adorama)
  13. so i need a top quality, ultra, super duper SSD apparently (not kingston i guess), Which SSD under like 60$ (again the netherlands suck at prices) should i get, i don't care if its just 128 GB, as long as it's quality is "top notch"
  14. so apparently, by this communitry, the corsair cx is crap? which PSU with 550 Or less should i get, and please under the 55$ (cuz the prices in the netherlands are like 30% higher unfortunately)
  15. what's basic to you if i may ask any sugestions? what ssd would u reccommend and what about a 6400? is it worth paying 20 euros less for a 6400? and is modularity like handy? is not modular any worse? and how about cooler master PSU's? and what SSD should i get? like maybe a crucial? sandisk? which is better?
