I thought I'd read you can't install Windows 7 with a KabyLake processor so you'd need to move to Windows 10??
Mmm will take a look at that site because the ones I use PCCG Shopping Express and Com Centre are all withing a hwisker of the prices O quoted.

My main desky at the moment is an i5 3750K driven Ivy and to be honest I am not interested in OC anymore as I don't game but I do want an i7 as the last two laptops have them and I am impressed with the speed.

Now if that sorts out the CPU and I can get a reasonable priced Z270 then I might just go it but the reviews do quote the Kaby as only slightly ahead of the Skylake.

My only other beef is the case - cannot get the one I really like as they don't (or at least I cannot find it) supply it anymore out here. - Coolermaster HAF XM because I really do like the quick detach of the side panels and also the provision of lots of fans in a large case. The alternatives I might have mentioned before are either dog ugly or super expensive but maybe MSY might have something eh?

You can install Windows 7 with Kaby Lake but you'll experience problems during installation that will make you do the setup all over again.

Hi John.

Looking for a case/tower is very time consuming. Their are just so many.
It takes me weeks to find what I think I like and then do all the measuring using what info I can find to see if everything will fit. My last build was a very tight fit for everything I wanted to install.
Keeping in mind, I'm fitting 5 lbs. of shot into a 4 lb. bucket.

My last case was a (Phanteks Luxe Tempered Glass).
The case is easy to build in, except when trying to install a large water cooling system. A 360 push/pull radiator in the top. That took a lot of figuring and adjusting. If I would of only use 3 fans on the radiator it would of fit very easily. If one uses a AIO liquid cooling or air cooling I don't think room would be a problem. I had to have a case with front 5 1/4 bays. That limited by choices.
Their are many videos on line that can help.
