  1. I need to replace one of my Core v21's magnetic dust filters (which go on the side panels), but I can't find them online whether it's the Tt Store or eBay. Is there a way I could possibly order one directly?
  2. It's been a while, but I've built a little budget HTPC about a month ago using some parts that were replaced in my first build among others. It'll go down in the basement once we get a new TV down there. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/LRNNnQ Core i6-6400 (Originally ordered an i3-6100 but wound up with this instead, not that I mind) MSi 750ti 2GB (First used in my PC until I replaced it with an RX 480) 8GB Crucial DDR4 Gigabyte H110M Seasonic S12II Bronze 430W Thermaltake Core V21 60GB Gloway Fervent SSD 500GB WD Blue HDD Thermaltake Pure 12 (Taken from my Core X9 that I sadly don't have much of a use for anymore)
  3. I'd totally buy a Micro ATX tower like the Core V31 but somewhat scaled down to mATX size. Closest there is ATM is the Versa H15 but it lacksmm fan support among other features
  4. Got a Sapphire RX 480 4G a couple days ago, now I have an i5-6500 coming in since the pentium's bottle-necking it. Once I get the i5 as well as a new motherboard and RAM, That'll be it.
  5. I just got the new tower yesterday and put everything in it, I just wanted a fairly cheap tower to replace the X9 ASAP even if it isn't Thermaltake. The X9 will probably get used for someone else's computer in the future. I'll get a new LED strip or perhaps a cold cathode later. I'm also considering getting a fan controller, another similar 140mm fan for the front and maybe a 120mm fluid or ball bearing fan for up top if a spare 120mm sleeve bearing fan won't do. Since these pics I've tidied up the cable management a bit more.
  6. Since the last post I've picked up some things for the setup such as a new chair, a bigger mousepad, and a monitor stand. I also ordered a Corsair Spec-01 tower to replace the Core X9 because of how big and unwieldy it is for my purposes and I wanted a decent windowed tower ASAP.

    Going with Suchao on this one.
  8. I got my new monitor as well as a couple more fans and re-arranging some existing ones.
  9. Got the processor in the mail earlier today and got everything up and running, marking the completion of the "Prototype" which in itself is a huge improvement over what I was using until now (It's amazing how much the processor either makes or breaks how well Heroes of the Storm runs). Also shown here is a 750ti that I got for $89 loose earlier this week. I got a new monitor as well as some fans coming in later this week.
  10. Having multiple fans can be somewhat louder than one, but it doesn't multiply the dB. So long as they don't run at full blast (which they mostly won't unless you run them on 12v power) they should be quiet enough.
  11. About a week away from getting a cheap processor to at least make the build function.

  12. Just got the temporary motherboard yesterday and hooked up everything I have except for the GT 730. I just ordered the Pentium as well as a lightly-used 750ti to replace the 730 (Which will go in my sister's computer like the motherboard and memory certainly will in a month or so's time). Once I get the Pentium (Amazon sure takes their sweet time getting things shipped out) I'll update the main post with the PCPP build which I'll take new pictures for.
  13. I'll go with Suchao Prowphong
  14. Just got my SSD in the mail today which I ordered after getting a refund on the other one. I tried it out in my laptop with Linux Mint on it, but since flash support's been essentially ditched by Adobe I'll have to stick to windows. Since my uncle told me he's thinking about getting a cheap modern motherboard and processor just so I have a working computer, I told him that I'd go for a H110 motherboard and Pentium G4400 that'd cost about $100 combined. Since then I bought some cheap Crucial DDR4 memory for it, and ordered the motherboard. Once I do get the parts for the big build I can always hand the placeholders off to my older sister since she's looking to get a build of her own too. Recently I decided to turn my desk 90 degrees and re-arranged things accordingly. I was just going to have the drives mounted under the tray, but the 3.5" HDD rack was a bit wobbly when clipped onto the underside so I just went with the cage instead.
  15. I know both of those already, it's just that there probably isn't an option to make it so the mouse is just constantly lit up (Which the Talon Blu does have IIRC) and not pulsing.
