I know the case isn't perfect as I would have liked to but need HDD storage. If I had the money, I probably replaced it with a few 5TB HDD since I know keep all of them in 10TB could nock out the drive with consistent reads would downgrade the drive more. Pretty much used every drive with different tv shows on them.
But with the motherboard I had was a ATX and it fit perfectly, yes small but it fit nicely.
Hopefully the prices will drop in the next couple days. :)
Update Build. Not sure what to use with my Ram for Plex server, thinking on getting 8GB sticks, which one is great without paying to much and without costing speed. Motherboard and CPU Cooler Great? could be improved?
Budget is about roughly $600. But like to make it less. Something better than my previous server build of Asrock died in 2 yrs.

Try tonymacx86 site, they have tons of guides and other peoples post of there own mackintosh's, side forums but don't say anything of pcpartpicker on there forums, they're very picky, I've created 2.
i3 works but what you want is mostly on i5-i7 end of things.
Not sure if this is allowed here or not so I won't say much.
Sry for not responding right away, Not sure if i want to use Asrock (i3 4330) again, thats the motherboard i had before upping quits on me after turning it off and cleaned up my room and never able to boot back up again. Not want it to expensive, good enough to stream up to 1080p up to 2-15 other people.
not sure if i want to use asrock again, it was cool but uncertain that it might brake less than 3 yrs. looking for long term. my 1st pc is older, stronger and is still kicking ***.
sry for lat response, pretty good for a while till i decided to go with LAN 5months ago, faster speeds from top floor to the basement, better than wifi.
reason for old gen bc i don't see that much improvement comparing i7 4790K vs i5 6600K to just get it other than more the cost but similar to the same speed as the 4000 series.
But I'll keep looking.
ya, I kind went spending way over board with my build, diffidently with my graphics card, i had the money at the time so I got it, now it dropped a lot but i don't mind.
I like to give him the similar horse power like mine is, bump up the ram from mine, an awesome case, better ram than what i have (corsair vengeance 1600) to a pro 2400. Performance and cooling system for the motherboard (have a ASz87 MarkII), haven't used any other SSD besides Samsung Pro. speeds my shitiest laptop made in 2010, LOL
Not sure with graphics card and CPU cooling part yet. Really like to give him the best performance without being to costly with the graphics card, I'm helping him pay for this and hoping our dad would cover the rest. Looking at $1300 maybe a little more is fine.
He remembers how slow at the time of my Compaq pc back around 2005. Compaq 5000. and screams at his pc he got from best buy when i told him that building is better but understands now, plus his pc is AMD, i haven't used that kind of pc and is always Intel.

He has some games that needs a cd drive, and i think we're giving his pc to my mom witch she needs a cd drive for her disk photo's from my grandmother.
Ya, i was looking at the 6th gen CPU for the last couple months and I see 4770K, 4790K out performs than the 5000-6000 series by a marge %.
The Graphics Card, meaning like this one?
MSI Radeon R9 380 4GB http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r9380gaming4g
Same here man, its really a tuff son-of-a-gun & I love my Sabertooth and the specs it has for about 2-3 yrs now. the Sabertooth z87 Mark 1. altho I spent to much on my 1st graphics card at the time n i had then n i know i wouldn't have it later.
Probably about 100x better maybe. Don't have money now but later by tax season if not sooner i will to build my parents 100x better pc.
2 builds a few weeks-month ago--
curios if i should get ddr4 or stick with ddr3, wanted to get something for my parents to be a lot faster and stronger than the AIO toshiba touchscreen pc i gave them 5-6yrs ago n now is become really crap. want to give them thats really $1200 than that aio peace of crap.
wish I could edit the specs like the old pcpartpicker used to be but now i can't edit my pc build bc I added 2 more 3TB.
Been pondering the same thing for a while. for me its between i7 4790K v i7 6600K.
seems to be the 4790 has more Turbo Clocking & Overclocking & Maximum bandwidth than the 6gen
Is it really worth the extra $60-$80 to get the 6gen?
Got a build here for next tax season for my parents.
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/b9kX8d 5Gen Build
Didn't see much improvements between i7 4790k v i7 6700k. and was think staying with the 4790k. Not just bc they're both 4.0GHz but seen stats and bar graphs from trusted sources that theres really less on up for grabs that demands to really get the 6gen intel other than the 6gen is over price.
the pro ssd bc I have 3 of the 840 and never had issues with them yet. Looking for faster write & read speed than the evo.
Kind of surprise we're not seeing 5GHz for this generation, at least maybe not yet anyway but still surprise by it.
thats ok, make sure you make a image of your system just incase whatever happens to your pc that you can revert to w/o having to install all your programs, good start amount with basic programs is about 22GB including all windows 7 updates, now it might be 25GB.
If you do however like to try out OS X, might spend some time on how to do it if you don't have an apple pc, didn't take me long to make a usb hackintosh thumb drive without having an apple pc, on my old laptop, easy way without having an apple pc is to download a mac vmware version for windows along with the patch for vmware windows to able to start the OS X, after that, its an easy process from there depending on how fast the pc/laptop is to make a thumb drive.
And spend a little time to stop it from either freezing up, problems booting up, safemode, verbos mode. best way to do it and help is to head over to http://tonymacx86.com. if you wanted amd, you gotta find another forum that does amd bc they won't accept talking on how to run on amd.
Only thing that kasperky kept showing as virus was the programs and hacks i do for windows which had no effect on an OS X Operating System.
Updated link, should I upgrade for a water cooler, will be overclocking a little.
I've been happy over 4yrs of being an OSX Hackintosh user. I use vmware fusion for what I need, not much games for steam on them but could also cause issues for being VM Which could also cause issues on the host pc itself for any slowness or anything.
Also may not use the graphics card on the VMware, so any hard games that's only on Windows, I would choose a dual boot in case and use Windows for those games.
Don't use an anti virus for osx bc it much slow your pc even thou its fast to run it, had issues when I use kaspersky for the hell of it.
sry for late reply, money not gonna be issue since my brother doesn't want his Nintendo Wii u Zelda Edition.
So many different kinds of the gtx 760, not sure what brand to get it from.
Hopping we don't have to replace his AMD CPU as well, which I'm afraid that we might have to. might boost it to a i5 unless theres a better amd, I don't know much about amd processors, barely used them at all.
I did how ever run into 1st time installing OS X Yosemite having the CPU go 7MB Display for 3 days trying to figure it out and I eventually reinstalled it by not re-partioning the drive but just erasing it then installing again and I manage to get it working and fixed a few drivers. I'll update a few pics with OS X and the link to tonymac of my build.
never had problems logging into paypal.com but ordering something from newegg connecting to paypal will bring up Kaspersky page selecting to continue page or secure page. (had a problem going through secure page but works fine continue page) Doesn't bug me when I'm on a secure wifi router with adtrap.
In a way, yes. I haven't used a Pentium since Pentium 4 on our old Windows XP Dell Dimension e510 and that pc was a piece of crap that we always had problems with.
Wanted to use what I'm familiar with and so I made my 1st pc a few years ago to replace my slow laptop (founding out later it was the hard drive that was slow with an upgraded ssd to it) and so upgraded my 1st build and later made it into a hackintosh next to my windows 7.
Would've gone AMD but I've never used an AMD before other than it be $100 n some what cheaper and since tonymac86x don't do AMD's, I wasn't positive what other site is similar to tonymac86x support for AMD.
Thought that was it, I've updated to get rid of that description.
I don't seem it funny and wasn't trying to poke fun at it either, i was only name'n a few that i have in my collection that i got in a bundle of DVD's, V.H.S, and a few online.
To us, its just cartoons, we know its history and wrong but they showed it on the air till 2005 on Cartoon Network but -1 for the Build? your the one who is messed up. we take no offense to it bc we weren't born in that area, we know its wrong what they did over 70 yrs ago. even a couple of our friends that aren't white watch these banned cartoons and don't care. We're not being racist. They're even banned cartoons after 9/11 that they took down, including changing the alternate ending to Lilo & Stitch, The Extremely Goofy Movie and others.
They do have a feature in the bios to OC even thou I think have the lowest version of the mobo. ASRock H97M Pro
Rashiq, I agree, i like that better than this new stuff. Its like its windows 8 all over again and it gave me quiet a headace and nvr goes away when i have to help my dad out that crappy system.
How am I soposed to update a completed build with a replacing part? keeps going to one of my other builds that i have saved for later. This upgrade still abit confuses me on where to go compare to the basic one just shows everything there.
This place was basic as using windows xp from windows 8.
We need an option to have a basic layout and a upgrade layout.
then again, maybe not, didn't think about it till now with examining the dimensions between the two for inside my case fitting nicely next to my fan with a little tight fit along with the cords plugging in.
Might go along back to sea-sonic http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ss750km
thx, Iknow they are good to but never owned anything from them before, I probably will go with http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20850xr
my bad, I meant the Thermistor Cables. (thermal sensors) instructions says place them, for ram, mine has a case around my ram cards, do i stick it between the holes to leave it there to see my temps on them? even that doesn't sound right either.
i was confused about it at first sometime a few months ago and never got around asking about it, what do I use to add my sensors stick to whatever component. just regular tape? doesn't sound right either.
well, here's my updated version with the newer samsung which I saved even more than the old version.
I said n beyond but I did missed that one but I'm not surprised by it either. withn a yr or so, we'll be up to 12K.
True there, after posting this, i was looking into the Asus z97 Pro with the nice built-in wi-fi/blutooth.
Power supply bc for better non waisting power and better than bronze, wasn't positive about the h100i. Wanted a nice graphics card and my dad doesn't do hard core gaming. me n my brothers tried gaming and sometimes the game would glitch up on online play a few years ago, just something better than relying on the cpu itself but then again, the graphics card you've displayed not bad either. I've never used sand disk and wasn't sure with it when i built mine and i'm happy with it, (like that saying goes: go with the flow that your comfortable with.) cpu with maybe a little over clock it to 4.1-4.2.
ps, been thinking on upgrading my psu so they would have that one, with the graphics card i have, i need a new one.
true but now wait for 5K (apple) and beyond.
Recently I installed something which also added other programs which I try to be careful what I'm installing from the direct website and no third party program what you actually want to install and I thought I got rid of it but I didn't, My ad effected virus laptop only happen to iexplorer and chrome was "Salus Ad", Safari which is the best browser didn't get effected. I hadn't had that virus in a long time and whatever i did to go into my registry, tried 4 different programs like megaware bytes, fixing key register, n a few others. I couldn't remove it, not listed under uninstall install recently, eventually i got my stuff off there and just erased my ssd.
I use adblock, disconnect me, and soon an AdTrap.
ok thnx, mostly going with ones that you have. thx bud. wish my case be a bit bigger so i could put 2 more fans under neath it but the 2nd fan would be in the way of my motherboard due to the case.
ok, thx! I wasn't so sure about the SSD myself either and never used any of them except for Samsung Pro
If it were me, I would upgrade the motherboard. But since its AMD, I'm not familiar of AMD.
i was think on 2 sets of screws, 1 set of 8 screws screwed the radiator to the case without the fans, the 2nd set of screws screw in the other 8 holes to case, would that work keeping the radiator cool thou? I'm sure that the screws won't be in the way of the fans spinning. but if not then ok (i don't have any 140 fans to test the theory). I wasn't sure about the 105 and the 110 but didn't notice the fan size, and heard the h100i were better/did the same thing at the time being.
Something your not so pose to and wondered if it was possible to do so w/o having a legit Macintosh. Successfully did it from my sh%%y *** laptop of mine but now is faster since adding a ssd to it about a week ago.
I had a few problems at first. first time I did it, I didn't need any cmds, but then I had to for whatever reason was the issue, I was just saying for anyone that never done it before and never heard of tonymacx86, n nor heard the term hackintosh instead of macintosh.
Definitely worth it, I love mine. It can be an *** if you don't know what your doing. Build OSX via vmware.
-better cable management to have better air flow could also do of the lag,
-make sure the cpu cooler is in place,
-1 or 2 power cords connect to the graphics card (depending what is has)
-you should have gotten 2 ram sticks of 4 gigs to have a better speed if not 2x2 to match 8 gigs so each ram shares the speed & room for each ram without any issues.
Ya' need to upgrade that but other than that since I don't have the better fans yet and not all my hdd/sdd aren't plugged in at the same time, it works, half the time I've been using as a hackintosh without the video card and works wonders. got the video card working even thou its not supported yet but its lagy at best it use to make the whole system freeze up after logging in for 20secs. so I've been using my internal graphics if i wanna use my Mavericks, 10.9.1.
check out my build that i built myself through out last year, prices now of this year has really quiet sky rocketed, play a lot of hard game a few months back and everything is so smooth. besides tinkering with my build.
probably need some changes around your price point like not get'n the graphics card I have but I build mine to last for a kickass long time.
$300-$650, I've never build one for just being a server, so I'm not really sure one would look like, heard online around $500 is good
I agree with you, just the same with the crappy youtube app from google, other youtube apps are better but not the point .
But yes, it would be great if there is an app of this, i believe it can happen and possible more functionality that the mobile version probably can't handle,
But like everything else, theres a balance between whats great about the other while the other one can't handle.
Succesfully gotten all Drivers except for one I couldn't get installed without being so technical about it.

Download Unofficial Milestone 5 Windows XP SP4 Alpha 2
For those who been following with this thread with a lot of views for something not much a big deal about.
I’ve testing out what works and what does work when installing Windows XP on a 4Gen board & Processor.
Anything that involves with cloning a vmware either from OSX Fushion or Windows VMWare, all you get is a half a second Windows XP boot screen and then the pc resets itself.
Put the Windows XP inside the CD/DVD Rom and load it up, what ya wanna do is if you like to have it there without formatting, chose the third option. It’ll create a new version of Windows XP on the hard drive but moved the old files in the old section but will still be able to access them loading up the new windows xp.
After that so far, It’ll give you two options to boot from, the one you clone (2nd option in DOS) won’t work bc it’ll reset the pc back to your motherboard bios splash screen.
Do the 1st option. It’ll load but you have to get windows updates and your drivers again and reload your programs, some may work but i thinks its worth just reinstalling them any.
But here’s this I discovered, when i tried cloning with Norton Ghost and some other third party program, I didn’t need the windows XP in the Rom but you will still have the boot drive in UEFI BIOS option under IDE. But besides that, it works.
I’m getting my CD/DVD/BD Rom between now up to two hours from the mail to test out again just booting the installation to the drive without the CD in it and with cloning it and if it boots on its own without the CD being there.
