Looking to build a new PC. Heaviest uses will be moderate gaming (MMOs, strategy games, RPG's, etc.), plus other routine tasks. Looking for a Micro-ATX, and quiet as possible as it will be on my desk.
I need an Optical Drive.
I want to have an SSD for booting purposes. If a case doesn't have 2.5" drive bays, can I use a caddy for these in a 3.5" bay? I'd prefer a dedicated bay for this drive. So, I'd need at least 2.
Should I go with a base model that only has one fan and upgrade it, or go with one with multiple fans pre-installed? I don't see how I save much money if I need to buy additional fans later.
Do I need to liquid cool? I'm looking right now at a decent proc (i7-6700k--seems a tad much for what I need, but this is what was recommended to me), and I don't want to put it at risk. Also, I have no interest in overclocking. Right now I'm thinking between of the Cooler Master N200--cheap, but great review; will need more fans.
is this really the best one for my needs?
