Back again.

CONTINUATION OF POST #14.

 

Options.

2. changing the MB, including the case. >https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/sqrcZf =  £30  increase.

3.  With RGB RAM. > https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Xzs8Rk                             =   £47 increase.

 

Just so you know, the PCP parts prices on the linked pages are regularly updated, so can change quite a bit.

Thank you once again for your help - no need to rush back to post, take care of your important things first.

 

For some reason the partpicker links are not bringing any info up

 

Great pointers on the fan colour/speed control, i wouldn't have known that.

 

**EDIT**

 

I may have stumbled across something HERE?

 

Quote - There are no RGB LEDs on the board itself but you do get RGB and ARGB connectors if you absolutely must have the bling.

 

**EDIT 2** There's THIS ONE as well - No onboard wi-fi but i suppose i could add a wi-fi card couldn't i?

No worries.   Our time difference gets our postsit bit out of sinc sometimes.

It is a better option to have intergrated WiFi.

Updated list price, saves a little more.

Ah great, i was just about to log on to modify partpicker :thumbsup:

 

Is there much need for RGB RAM in your opinion? Or should red fans be enough?

 That's a bit hard; There is no need for it for performance, just an option if you want more bling, not something you would swap out later on if you did not have RGB.

I would wait until the PC was up and running, play with the MB LEDS and then look at options like RGB fans or strings.

Ok, as far as Im aware this MB doesnt have LEDs but I suppose they can be added later on.

Ill hopefully get ordering some bits v soon,

My brother sent me this tonight, I thought the MB wasnt up to much & seems like it also doesnt have RGB control - its not expensive though & id upgrade the RAM & maybe the PSU

I think i got my W10 key via the key viewer tool as you suggested? Seems to easy, is this reliable enough?

 

Obviously i've blanked most of the key code

If not already done so, suggest you download the MB user manual.

Sorry, no surprises :laughing:

When ordering, please do this check as, if you go to the last price list you will see it has increased,

https://uk.pcpartpic...com/list/RLMX9G

Click on an item Icon, then look at the merchants list for best price, then click the buy icon on the lright

 

Let me know if this is clear to you.

Loud n clear, thank you.

Ive checked a few retailers & believe it or not Amazon is coming in slightly better, mainly because of the free postage when all is combined

 

 

**EDIT** Thats everything ordered apart from te case :yeah: :D
