I'm drafting a gaming build and have my eyes set on the Bitfenix Aegis case, simply put it's a beauty. The con of this case, it advertises up to 8 case fans but only comes with a single 120mm fan. I doubt I will be needing all 8 because I won't be doing much overclocking if at all but I would like to keep the system cool. My upper limit is £600. I know very little about AMD as well as motherboards and am wondering what mobo to get along with it. I'm looking at the ASRock FM2A88M EXTREME4+ however I worry that it doesn't have enough fan connectors. The final part I'm not sure about is the cpu cooler, no idea where to look.
My idea is that perhaps it's an idea to go with a radiator in the front, and a 140mm on top? As I said I know very little.
