Assembling Barebones Computer Kits & Computer Cases
Remember when assembling one of our money-saving Barebone Computer Kits, or installing your existing computer components into a new computer case, you may have to modify the case to fit your components - This Is Normal! Cases are designed to hold and accommodate a wide variety of motherboards, interface cards, connectors, and other components. Because of this, the case manufacturer designs their cases with easily removable panels to allow these components to properly fit in the case. All you need to do is punch them out with a screw driver or fold them over with a pair of pliers to snap out the metal piece for your exact components. In this way, you save the cost of assembling your computer, and have the satisfaction of building your own workstation.
PLEASE NOTE: Carefully read all documentation BEFORE you start to assemble your Barebones Kit or add components to a Computer Case. Some components need to be assembled in a specific order. Also place the components in the case temporarily to confirm any modifications (punch outs) that need to be made to fit that component.
Important Info About Barebones
Our money-saving Barebone Computer Kits gives you the opportunity to build or upgrade your perfect computer at an affordable cost, by installing key components yourself. Most components included in our Barebones Kits, including power supplies, are not pre-assembled (mounted and connected in the case). With Barebones Kits, where we include a case and a separate power supply, the case specifications may not indicate the presence of an attached power supply (simply because it is a separate component). This is also because you must install the included power supply yourself.

Casual user - works great but cpu fan is too loud!
I needed an upgrade from a dual core intel from 4 years ago. I am not a gamer so it's just for internet, media and watching blu-ray movies (connected hdmi to my TV). the only problem I have is how loud the CPU fan is. It's not the PSU fan since I disconnected the CPU fan for a few seconds ona cold boot. This really ruins the whole media center experience. I have to try to mess with the bios settings to see if I can lower the fan rpm's - again, good bang for the buck for casual use; just expect a loud noticeable humm coming from the computer.
Not sure what to think yet
I got this June 27th, plugged everything and would not get BIOS to come up. Tested everything I could and would not work. Sent the mobo back to MSI and they sent the same one back to me, sent the CPU they sent another brand new. Changed different cables for connection and no BIOS again. Talked to other geeks, no idea why is not booting. Can give a good review with a computer that doesn't work. Any ideas are welcome.
