    The motherboard is not using a standard ATX form factor, so you might need a case that supports extended ATX. Before that measure length and width of the motherboard and if the width is more than 244mm, then you need an E-ATX case.

    As of whether buying a new case will make a difference, I don't know, as you have to find what is stopping the GPU from going all the way in. This case has a space for cable routing on the other side, so you won't have cables going all over the place.

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    I checked the measurements are 200*244mm, so it is a bit smaller than micro-ATX. It will fit in the case from the link you've given

    Hi how do I get rid of this part wire which is taped or stuck in metal. Also I removed all screws except the one on the cup fan. Do I remove that too? I got no thermal paste
  • ven98ven98 Posts: 4,046ACE Pathfinder
    What are you trying to do here? I assume removing the motherboard?

    I assume you talking about the black and white cables. These are for the antenna for the WIFI card they are connected to. You can disconnect them from the wifi card and the case and then connect them back after.

    Am having an issue  with the cpu cooler. The long screws are very difficult to take out. I think to remove the motherboard I need to loosen the heatsink. But the screws are tightly placed. I was wondering If I   should use an electric screw driver

    I wander how you always catch me when I am online  :o =)

    The CPU cooler doesn't have to be removed in order to remove the motherboard(you can post a picture). Using power tools on delicate components is a big no no.

    Just where the screw is located I am planning on removing the metal casing. Next to it there is this weird soft mesh thing holding the wire. Am thinking of snapping that metal and separating the mesh quality from the wire? Does it serve a purpose and do I really need it

    The image won't post
  • ven98ven98 Posts: 4,046ACE Pathfinder
    I am not sure what is the purpose of this metal part, but it could be for holding the side panel, so I don't advice removing it if you are planning to use the case in the future. 

    I forgot to write that you really, really need a thermal paste on the CPU. The heat is not able to transfer from the CPU to the cooler without thermal paste.

    There's a 12 pin on the motherboard where the s few driver is pointing. I don't know what to plug it in with.  Plus the SATA cables look all the same. They are the large ones that plug into the ssd and odd I got none that plugs into the mobo

    These are all the connections on the motherboard and what they are for.
