  1. Alright guys I need mobo advice. Would the MSI Gaming M5 be a good mobo choice for this case? Here are the parts I've decided on (bought all except mobo, cpu, ssd): Case: Thermaltake Core v71 with extra 200mm fan CPU: i7 6700k single GPU: EVGA 980 Ti SC+ Ram: Patriot 16GB DDR4 3000 SSD: 960GB Sandisk Ultra II PSU: 750watt EVGA platinum CPU cooler: Corsair h105 I was browsing mobos and this one seems to have good reviews and a lot of good features.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130873 Basically, I'm wondering if everything will be compatible with that mobo and if, geometrically, it will all fit. For the case fans, there's 1 140mm and 4 200mms and the 200s will plug into an in case fan controller which will connect directly to the PSU molex. My main concern is that I read on tech report that the mobo didn't have clearly labled headers for the front case panel. Would the front panel be compatible with the board? (specifically there are 2 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0, and the headphone and mic jack) I'd be open to other mobo recommendations if something would fit my build better but I've bought most of the other parts so I'll keep those the same. (as an aside, newegg gives $20 off if I get it with an i7 6700k... however, newegg is charging $400 right now, vs the launch price of $370... think I should cut my losses and get both or wait to see if bf brings a better deal?) Thanks!
  2. Hi, I bought a core v71 case for a build I'm going to put together in a couple months and I had a couple questions on the case fans. Basically, I'd like to add a second 200mm fan to the open space on the ttop so I can use it as part of a push pull for a liquid cooler that I'll mount inside the chasis. 1. Is this fan identical to the ones included in the case? Same shade of blue and everything? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106225&cm_re=thermaltake_200mm_fan-_-35-106-225-_-Product 2. Will I be able to connect the 4th 200mm fan to the built in fan controller? Would I need any adapters or modifications to do so? Thanks
