My System Specs


Corsair Carbide 400R and 500R both have USB 3.0 ports on top. you could also get some used parts, especially the CPU : getting the 3570k over the 2500k doesn't really make any sense, you could save 30$ right there, even if you get it new. Just because it has 18W lower max tdp? you don't fold, so it will not stay at 100% TDP 24/7 like I will keep my future rig, so not really a big advantage there. Apparently a better option would be the Xeon E3 1230V2 that works for sure on a H77 mobo, namely Asrock H77 Pro4-M. i7 performance at (almost) i5 price (6%more).
