Ok I have your recommended board on order. Any suggestion on I3 vs I7 ?
I probably won't actually start cutting etc until January
The cube I got actually is running OS 9 I think. It's not here yet
I will be following one of your threads for the build
Both CPUs perform very well. The i7 runs considerably warmer and costs more. I guess it all depends on your primary use. Make sure it's either the i3-3225 or i7-3770S version, so you have full compatibility with the motherboard. Just so you know, I use my i7 Cube more than any of my other systems. It does everything very very well.
