right, thankyou. also another quick question, if i was to send them an extra fan along with the case and email them regarding it do you think they would be able to place the fan in the case for me?
I doubt it. I'd suggest you do that yourself: it won't be difficult. I also doubt it will be needed: your case comes with three fans, and a 12400F and a 6600 aren't exactly going to create especially high temperatures.

Hi, so I am thinking on getting a white case however the components on pc specialist are all black. Most of the white pc builds I have seen have a white interior and white components so I'm a bit conscious on how the pc will look. Any opinions on white cases with black components?

It's really down to personal preference. Personally, I think if you're going for a white build you need to go for as much white as possible, otherwise it can look a bit odd, but others might disagree with this. A good way to see for yourself would be on a site like PCPP then selecting a white case you like and looking at others builds to see how they look.

Looking at the options PCS currently has for white cases, I'd also mention it's probably worth sending one in if it's a route you decide to go down- none of the cases they have are fantastic for airflow so aren't choices I'd actively recommend

Hi, im using the Corsair Icue 4000x case and a corsair h100i elite cappelix cooler so how many extra fans can i add? theres 3 at the front but ive seen different setups with different amounts so can anyone let me know how many extra fans i can add not including the 3 at the front that come with the case? I would want rgb corsair ones but they only do them in a pack of 3 on pc specialist and im not sure how much i need. thanks

The 4000X comes with three 120mm fans. The Capellix cooler comes with two 120mm fans. There is one final fan slot, which is on the rear of the case. That is the only place you can put one. However, I wouldn't bother; it won't do much or anything for airflow. I'd stick with the five you have. That will be ample.

Hi im using the motherboard below and im really confused on the fan headers. Can someone let me know how many fans this motherboard supports? If the case im using has 3 pre installed fans, it will take up 3 of the headers, then theres the aio and im not sure how many headers that takes up. my only issue is the extra exhaust fan that i would like to add on my own when the pc arrives, however im now hoping that the mobo has enough headers. Can someone let me know? Thanks

I have another question about my specs. If i wanted to switch the mobo to the Asus tuf gaming z690 plus would it still be fine compared to the mobo that was chosen at first? (the asus tuf gaming b660 plus) what would the advantages and disadvantages be if i switched?

Advantages of upgrading:
  • Ability to overclock (but the chip you have isn't overclockable)
  • More connectivity (more PCIe lanes, more SATA ports, more USB -- though I doubt you'll come anywhere near the limits of B660 with your system)
  • Broadly speaking, you're more likely to get more cooling and power delivery (this isn't technically part of the difference, more a difference in the "tiers" of motherboards: a Tuf B660 is likely to be weaker than a Tuf Z690) (but the 12400F is not a demanding chip at all)
Disadvantages
  • It costs more.
So there are benefits, and for mid- to high-tier systems, I'd fully endorse going Z690. But for this system? Just not worth it, even for the relatively small incremental cost.

Hi, i realised the b660 plus only has 1 hdmi port. will this be an issue going forward especially if i would want to possibly add a second monitor in the future?

The motherboard port is irrelevant as you have a dedicated GPU, that's what has display connectors, the motherboard won't be used.

But on modern monitors on PC, you would normally use display port. HDMI is really for consoles, TV and hifi.

If you follow the instructions PCS give, that's fine.
