01 April 2013 - 03:06 PMThe case you selected in the last build is the exact one that I have been using on my latest build for some time now, and I have to say that I'm really satisfied with it. It has enough room for all the things I need and looks really cool when the blue led fans are on (and when they're not it still does of course ).
Something that is sometimes easily overlooked is the GPU length, but fortunately, with your latest build (the only one I checked) you should be allright. The Zalman Z9 Plus has room for GPU's of up to 11.4” (290 mm). My GPU is 270 mm (about 10.63") long and it fits perfectly, while yours is 10.2" (about 259 mm).
The case does offer cable management, a built-in fan controller (for up to 2 fans), temperature sensor and more.
The fan controller cannot disable fans, just slow them down, but that's not really a problem.
About the fans:
- There are 3 blue 120mm led fans that can be connected with their 3-pin fan connectors
- Then there is also the 120mm fan at the back of the case, which is white and has a peripheral(molex) power connector. You can hook this one up to a fan-controller (such as the one on the front), but you will need a converter such as this. Of course you can also hook it up directly to your PSU, but that would make it spin at full speed all the time.
All in all I think it is a very good, nice case that comes at a low price. If you want to take a look at my full build, you can go here and click on "PC 2012" (Dutch site)
For a more thorough review, look here. (Also where I got the exact maximum GPU length)
By the way, if you really want to calculate the PSU Wattage you'll be needing or might need in the future, you can use this calculator.

Then again, until simong93 tells us what language it is, all we can do is guess, which isn't good enough...
25 August 2012 - 06:44 AMBacked the project $25 as well, have been following the game for some time now and I must say: I'm excited to get the prototype.
05 August 2012 - 07:50 AMI personally think that when you get a 3.1 GHz quad core it doesn't really matter whether you get an AMD or Intel one, it'll be sufficient.
I have at least some experience on this point, since I basically recently did what you're about to do: assemble your own computer.
A few points of advice:
- Start with searching for a case
- Make sure that all the components you buy actually fit inside the case. (graphics card for instance)
- Make sure that everything is compatible with each other. For instance: the two processors you listed both fit on a different type of socket, so you should make sure the motherboard you purchase has the correct socket.
- It would be good to make sure your power supply supports the maximum amount of power you're going to use and if I were you I'd keep it on the safe side, so that if you ever want to add a certain component, your power will be able to cope with it. (Useful tool to calculate the amount of PSU wattage you will probably need.)
I personally used a good site to search for all the components, but unfortunately it's in Dutch. (Tweakers.net)
Anyway, good luck.
P.s. Below is a list of all the components I used to assemble my computer, to (maybe) give you an idea.
