Question

extra fan

Is there an extra plug on the motherboard for me to install an extra fan? I see there's a space on the side of the tower for an extra fan and want to install one there in addition to what already is on there.

You can replace the existing fans with higher quality fans. This unit has several fans. The included fans are slightly noisy, but not so much that it overwhelms you.

answer 2
you can there is an extra plug coming from the side fan, so you pretty much daisy chain the fan to another fan for power.

Hi bacon626262,

Technically the motherboard installed will support up to an AMD FX-8320 processor, however our engineers have experienced issues occurring with that CPU installed. We recommend sticking with an AMD FX-6000 series and below.

If you have other questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 888-462-3899, ext; 5153.

Hi Notladz,

This PC will likely run sonic shaders mod on a lower resolution for recording. Howver, for optimal recording resolution, our engineers recommend at least an NVIDIA GTX650Ti 1GB Graphics card or higher. Unfortunately sonic shaders mod requires a stronger graphics card to support higher resolutions.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 888-462-3899, ext: 5153.

Hi Barry,

The 25 digit Windows product key is located on the right side panel of your desktop. Included in your box is a quick start guide that will give you the directions on authenticating your Microsoft Windows.
