Now, all I need is a fan and a nicer-looking case.

Fesh, I appreciate the build you have given me and everyone else who has helped, especially Sknmak.

Anyone know of any cool cases for around $50 and a good fan?


HAF no good? The Titanium Grey Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window is on sale for $70. What kind of fan are you talking?


A good one. One that's not too loud but still blows well to get all the heat away.

Speaking of heat, what is thermal compound, should I get it, and which brand should I get?

PS: I did a search for the compound and I have a general idea but I'm not too sure.

If you are looking for something that performs well and quiet then you are probably going to need something made by Noctua.

That Fractal case is beautiful but the price is pretty steep. Got anything else?

Anyway, I'm going to sleep now so I'll see your recommendations for a case and fan tomorrow.
I still need a wireless/long cord keyboard and mouse, too.

Again, I appreciate all of you guys' help with this. I am absolutely new to this. I know I can ask stupid questions, but that just helps me understand better in my own way.

Thank you and goodnight!

Alright, so here's what I still need:

1. A nice looking case for around $50
2. A good fan (it doesn't have to be super quiet
but quiet enough that I won't really hear it
from four feet away)
3. Thermal compound (how much should I get
and does it matter what brand?)

Also, I'm wondering, I noticed that the build I have now has a CPU cooler. Would I still need a fan for the PC if I have a cooler? Or no?

For the thermal compound, I'm going with Indigo Xtreme, as performance charts have shown it is the best yet.

Just use the case fans and if you need more get some later.

Also, you should get MX-4 for the TIM.

Why not IX?

Also, here are some cases I like:

Which out of these three should I get?

All 3 of those look decent. I like the Corsair the best.

I just prefer MX-4.

You're really a Corsair guy, huh?

Anyway, the IX has the best performance according to my research. I don't know why it's not on pcpartspicker.com.

So you think the Corsair looks the nicest? Or for another reason?
