F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM = cas latency of 7, runs at 1.65V

F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL = cas latency of 9, runs at 1.5V

I am running the F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM and can vouch for them.

So is it TOOO much of a performance loss between the two?

I'll get the CL7D's if it's a difference I can notice, but you know it's always nice to save.

Not a huge difference. Some, but not huge.

Alright then, I'll just get the $50 ones, thanks.

Here's how everything looks so far with HDD CD Drive motherboard VGA switch card and I believe that's it.








Had a bit of trouble installing the Seagate hardrive. At first I made it so that the little hard drive brackets closed on the sata and power ports (really dumb of me) because how would I plug it in? So I turned it around and got it in. Now the HAF 922 drive brackets have like 4 small nails on each side but there's still space to insert a nail in the middle of the drive of both sides, but the drive is secure where it is, so do I leave it like that?

Really loving this case so worth the $100.

Not a bad start.

I'd drop the dvd down one and run the sata cable behind the tray. But if you saw my case you'd be like wtf....... Think diesel motor in a kia.

Hmm alright I'll do that, hopefully it's long enough.

I'll upload more pics once the processor is inside, only missing CPU GPU PSU and ram.

Hey guys, I am sure that my M4a89gtd pro dosen't have an integrated wireless adapter, so I need one.

Is this good? Newegg.com - Rosewill RNX-N1 IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB2.0 Wireless-N 2.0 Dongle (2T2R) Up to 300Mbps Data Rates/ WPA/WPA2 (AES, 64,128-WEP with shared-key authentication) Cisco CCS V1.0, V2.0 and V3.0 compliant/ Vista&# $30

Feel free to suggest any other ones that may be better. Budget is like $40.

I don't know what kind of router you have (G or N), but either one of these would be a good bet:

Newegg.com - Rosewill RNX-N150PCx IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI 2.2 Wireless Adapter Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates 64/128 bits WEP WPA (TKIP with IEEE802.1x) WPA2 (AES with IEEE802.1x)

Newegg.com - Rosewill RNX-N300X IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0 PCI Wireless Adapter (2T3R) Up to 300Mbps Wireless Download Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP, WPA PSK and WPA2 PSK (TKIP and AES) Vista/Win7

My router is the AT&T Uverse gateway router.

Not sure if it makes a difference to what you will suggest me :

3800GV-B Goes up to G B and B/G modes.

also, do you know of any similar to those, that are USB instead of connected to mobo?
