What Would Be The Best,....


Recommended Posts

Alright, ... I am buliding my frst rig and looking for a full tower case, .. .or something that can support up to 5 - 5.25" External drive bays and 6 or more Internal 3.5" drive bays. For budget, would like to stay under $150.

 

Also has anyone heard or know anything about the Ultra X-Connect 500W ATX PS with UV Cable Kit if so I would like to know more about it ,... cuz it's they got a good idea with the cables.

 

One last thing, ... does anyone know someone or have they done a case mod with 40mm fans in a 5.25" External drive bay. And if so how did it work out.

Thank you CmpFreak88 for the review link. it proves to be a solid psu.

 

p8baller07 useing a hole saw? are you meaning to cut in a drive bay cover? or something else? The reason I was asking cuz I was htinking about taking off a drive bay cove and useing 3 40mm fans and fixing them in to the drive bay with either silicone or hot glue gun.

 

 

I forgot to ask this question before, .. and it's most likely a noob question, but I was wondering, ... on that psu it says --

 

The cabling included is as follows:

 

1x 20-Pin Main Power

1x 6-Pin AUX (Xeon) Power

1x 4-Pin 12V (P4)

6x 4-Pin Peripheral

1x Floppy

 

the "1x 4-pin 12v (P4)" is what I have a question about. The quesiton is would it work for a AMD motherboard, such as an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe v2.0. If someone can answer that question or show me a link that could answer it for me that would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like a nice PSU, but the review was very flawed. For example, they didn't even state if they used MBM5 or a digital multimeter to measure voltages, they didn't list idle/load voltages, etc. The PSU looks nice, but I would always emphasize performance over looks. Look around the web for a good review on that particular PSU.

 

BTW, what is the maximum about of money you would like to spend on a new PSU?

First time i have seen somthing like that looks like a good idea but not sure how much you want to but into your computer. IT looks like you can t attach other cables onto other ones I get it be sure you know how many cables you need.

now for the other question,... I'm looking for a Full tower case with 5 - 5.25 external drive bays, and 6 or more internal 3.5 drive bays, ... also would be nice if it has a door covering the 5.25 drives. and for no more $150

So you want a large case right (you aren't going to get compact with 5 5.25" bays anyway are you)...

Check out the BA and CA series on the top left of the page.. they are big, and IMO looks pretty cool.. plus 6 - 5.25" and 8 - internal 3.5". As they only just announced it, you probably won't be able to buy it for a bit.. but they do look beastly.
