You could always take a dremel to the mobo plate and give you some holes to work with.

Haha yeah, but that requires way too much effort and care!

...way too much effort?

Take the case out to your garage, open it up, and cut the holes.

Just a few changes I would have made...

Getting a newer CPU (at least Ivy Bridge, maybe Haswell)

To go with the newer CPU, a newer (as in chipset) motherboard, such as H77

I know not everyone plays games on their computer, but a 6xx series Nvidia GPU (like GT 640 or something of those sorts). I could understand if it was just leftover from something or you wanted to upgrade later, though.

A better, not as cheaply made (Raidmax isn't exactly the best company) case

At least an 80 Plus Bronze PSU, and lower wattage because it looks as though you won't need it

As it is, it's a pretty stable build, but it could use some tweaking. I understand if this was made when those newer things weren't out yet, but if this was recently built, you could have done much better.

I'm pretty sure he's on a budget or this is salvaged/freebies.

Thank's..Yes Nendo this is a salvaged/freebies build. Most of the parts, mob/psu/ram/cpu came from my other build The Red Knight.
