Windows 7: Is this PC a good build?

Laith, if a case has usb 3 ports on the front and the motherboard does not have a usb 3.0 port it should come with an adapter that connects the 3.0 cord from the front to a 2.0 port on the MB. So at least you have front 2.0 ports.

This the board you`re getting ?

MSI USA 990FXA-GD65V2

Laith, that board has USB 3.0 ports on the rear panel, but does not have a USB 3.0 header on the Motherboard. You can buy a converter cable to make the USB 3.0 front panel connect to a USB 2.0 header on the board or an extension cable that will run out of the back of the case and plug into the rear USB 3.0 ports. Basically moving them from the back panel to the front connections. Your case may even come with one of those cables.

You may also find some needed info here Thermaltake - U.S.A. - V3 Black Edition - VL80001W2Z

It has only 2 USB 2.0 ports on the front, no USB 3.0 and will take a max 160mm tall CPU Cooler. Take a look at the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. I believe it is 160mm tall and for price/performance you will not find a better one.

And, in the for what it's worth department, I hate MSI. But, there are people here that love them. What I like or don't like has nothing to do with what you buy.

This reply was for your cooler problems, but somehow something got sidetracked or I`m so tired I messed up a reply

If my reply has nothing to do with anything, just disregard it


OK, the first thing you have to do is take the side off the case, now move the side down until the end is over top of the cpu.

Now measure from the top of the cpu to the bottom of the side of the case, that is how much space you have to fit a cpu cooler.

Now find a cpu cooler that will fit in the height.

All cpu coolers list their dimensions.

Example:

DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED, Silver Award from HardwareSecret.com - Newegg.com

Ok, thanks for the support, BTW should i upgrade something or is it soild? And i haven't built this yet... I'm planning to do so next year so this is some preperations. I have kept on with my HP Pavilion G6 for the past 3-4 years now and im happy. It's that there are so many parts in it that's broken... The fan and battery is dead and stuff like that. That's why im planning to upgrade.

You may want to wait until you are ready to do the upgrade. There will be a lot of new components out by then. You may be better off choosing some of them.
