I've been having some trouble getting the graphics card installed (physically). The brackets don't seem to want to clear the case. Is there any trick to this?

Thanks in advance.

Did you remove the placeholder vents from the back of the chassis? That would definitely make it impossible to install the video card. If that's not the issue, then make sure the motherboard is properly seated so that it's in line with the back of the chassis, and also ensure that there's no warp in the back panel of the case that is pulling the mount away from the video card.

The PSU does not have the extra 12V, 4 pin ATX connector for the motherboard. Can anyone speak to this? Iíve seen some say itís completely unnecessary and others say it helps stabilize, and is necessary.

I donít know one way or the other, and wouldnít know which PSU I would pick that would have one.

Thanks!

Welcome to the TBG Forum, dpzook, and thanks for submitting this great question!

The industry is in the process of switching over from one motherboard EPS (CPU) power connector to two. This has happened before, with video cards, but luckily when it comes to motherboards, the second plug is not necessary. It provides extra power for ultra-high-end processors (8-core and 12-core models), but even then, isn't required for out-of-the-box use. You will have no trouble booting a Ryzen 5 3600 with just the single 8-pin EPS connector (actually dual 4-pins, technically). The 3600 uses less power than any AMD Ryzen CPU currently on the market.

Just saw this^

Thank you Ari, that is very helpful!

If I replaced the 2060 super with an NVIDIA 2070 super, would there be any problems, or other specifics I would have to upgrade? Sorry my first time building so I donít know too much.

Best,
Dpzook

You will absolutely fine with a 2070 Super, it's a great card if you can get your hands on one!
