Suggestions on new build

Post by jlackner19 » Sun Jan 20, 2019 12:15 am

I have a thermaltake dual fan AIO and i'm looking at getting a micro atx case for the new setup. Any suggestions on a case that will take a cooler of that size and wont interfere with other components?

Fractal Meshify C Mini.

Easily take that cooler and probably one of the best series of cases on the market for airflow. Only negative is that it isn't much smaller than the full size ATX version.

Love that Fractal case.
Also the InWin 301 is a beautiful and affordable Micro-ATX Case that supports 240mm radiator.

Awesome that gives me a couple of options. I'm looking at a new gpu, and i'm wondering if i'm going to notice enough of a difference on a rx 580 or do I save the $50 and get the rx 570. I"m looking at the 8gb version of either

I would not game on a higher resolution than 1080p on either of those cards. At that resolution they both perform quite well and the difference would not be noticeable by you. If I was doing a build on a budget I would go with the 570 and put the money saved towards more SSD storage.

Inwin 301
Corsair CXM 550
Asus Prime B450M-A/CSM Micro
Ryzen 7 1700x
XFX Radeon RX 580 GTS XXX
Crucial MX500 1tb
G.Skill Ripjaw 4 series 16gb

Heres about what i'm looking at. AMD is all new to me. I've gone intel for as long as I can remember. Im going to stick with my
250gb samsung evo 250gb ssd for OS then use the 1tb for games mainly. Any suggestions/changes would be appreciated
