  1. hi everyone i am building myself a computer and i have all my hardware and everything already on the way, i made the silly mistake and did not make sure everything would fit into my case. Could you guys please take a look at my setup and let me know if everything should fit nicely with the least amount of budging stuff together thank you very much.


    My Hardware:

    i know that looking at this stuff will take awhile but i will really appreciate it.
    thank you

    The Antec 900 is a fantastic case. All should work fine.

    Well, unless you add the kitchen sink too, you're probably good to go.

    The only possible thing that could interfere with anything might be a CPU cooler, but that Zalman will fit (the case) easily. Sometimes with large CPU coolers, memory slots on the motherboard can be either blocked, or necessitate installing the RAM before the cooler. A problem sometimes arises with RAM that has extra high heatsinks on it.

    The GSkill "Ripjaws" series RAM you have chosen does in fact, have fairly high heatsinks.

    Another thing, I don't know about the 900 >> 2<< case, but my 900 (original model), is not vented on the bottom. Because of that, I would suggest using a power supply with a front (not bottom) intake and a rear exhaust fan, such as this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=antec_earthwatts_500w-_-17-371-007-_-Product As I said though, I am only familiar with the 900 1.

    Another problem might possibly arise with the Matx motherboard. After you install it, you might not be able to find it. :rolleyes:

    Does the 900 Two have bottom vents for the PSU...?
