Thank you for your suggestion, but in my opinion the grid is quite snug right where it is :D It's a brilliant little device, especially since the mobo only includes 2 fan headers!

Not really sure about that driver booster. But if its as simple as you say then I have little to worry about and I'm making a fuss about nothing.

$300 is just impossible for a system that can run some games. This is the lowest you'll get that can play older and lighter titles at low-medium settings

Cheers. Which MoBo would you recommend? I chose this one because it had what she would need plus the white accents and white back light was cool. Technically it is a gaming MoBO, it's from MSI's Arsenal Gaming line :)

Noise is an issue for me. Sensitive ears and not a fan of noise. So I think I'll be going for the Nepton 240M.

My apologies. Wrong wording :P I just can't resist aesthetics even in a cheapo build. EDIT: I also should have been more specific. I wasn't meaning that this build was the best bang for buck around. I was more wondering if there was any better I could do for under £450, preferably closer to the £400 mark. £450 is the absolute most I'm willing to spend on a child's first pc

Since I'm getting this board for christmas I've been practically obsessing about it before I even have it. I've read both eu and english manuals from MSI's product page and I'm slightly confused. According to the manual its from left to right its Channel A: DIMM 1 & DIMM 2, Channel B: DIMM 3 & DIMM 4. It has three diagrams directly underneath, first has a single stick in DIMM 2, second has two in DIMM 2 and 4, third has all four DIMMS filled. It states directly underneath: always start with DIMM 2. So doesn't this mean that you do put the dual channel in the two white slots?

I'll take your word for it and go with the i5-6500. I have no intention of ever overclocking, so the Z170 board would never serve its purpose, as you said. Just so I may be able to learn a bit, why is the i5 way better than i3? :)

/offtopic

I can imagine its a premium feature, but I don't think its exclusive to High-end Z170 boards. Gigabyte's GA-B150M-D3H has audio shielding. And if I weren't going for a black/white aesthetic would be my go to B150 mATX MoBo because its rather feature rich for an affordable price tag.

/ontopic But that metaphor does clarify it. Thank you :)

Really awesome build! I've been wanting to build inside this case for a while now and you're the first to do so in the same colour scheme that I want to. I just have a small request. Could you post a picture with the side window panel on? I'd like to see how clean it looks when covered, because I'm really debating what case fans to go for from an aesthetic vs noise point of view. I'm going for non-led fans and am tempted by the Bitfenix Spectre Pro White 140's. While they're expensive (£15),I feel hit the look I'm going for to a T. My only concern is that it'd be wasted if you can't see them. +1 for a unique case and focused build design!

I know that only z97 boards let you overclock k series chips. That doesn't phase me. I'm not the greatest fan of overclocking in the first place, however I see its potential with the g3258.

I did a bit of further research into MoBo's under £50. And while an H97 isn't in that price range. I think the Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H would be a much better choice as long as I can be certain its Rev. 1.1 I'm getting. I double checked which cpu's it supports and it does support an i5-4670k or an i7-4790k among others, so I think it will suffice. Thank you for pointing out your concern. If there was any part I was iffy about it was the MoBo.

Well, as you quoted me, there is no heat spreader and its a stock cooler, plus I'm certain its been oc'ed due to the high idle temperatures and looking into speccy and seeing 4.0ghz while idle. Thank you so much for the video though, I'll look into that and perhaps do some research of my own into her particular bios. And yeah, I'm kinda peeved that I didn't know as much about pc's and pc building a year ago as I do now.

I wasn't intending on overclocking. Thank you for your concern on that side of things :-)

I have a xeon x3440 in my current pc, I absolutely adore it for the ease of multitasking. However it is quite out of date nowadays, and the motherboard is lightly damaged. While the computer works well, I feel it is due for an upgrade. Thus, I'm debating to go for Skylake. I think the best option would be to wait for the Xeon E3-12xx v5's to be officially announced and released, personally. Then I've got the future proofing of the Skylake and the hyperthreading of the Xeon. But that's my two scents. I've got 9 months to build this. The reason I'm asking now is I may be able to get a few components for christmas.
