thanks. it helps a bit. now I need to find out if I need an “adapter bracket” as they suggest. probably I will refer to the mobo manual
Great price, shame is not M.2 format as is what I need. Heat added

It's no issue, mate. There are no moving parts in the SSD, so it needn't be bolted down. My new case has 2.5" mounts, so I use those, but in my old case there were none so I just left it loose in the 3.5" drive bay, and it was fine. I've heard of others just leaving them tucked down the side of the case. Messy, but not risky.

I'm no expert and I think it depends on your preferences (looks, airflow, noise). This was only my second time building one. I went from a Thermaltake View 27 (budget at £70, 3 plus years ago) to a Fractal Define 7 (slightly higher end at £150, gets decent reviews). The new case is very slick, roomy and the side panels pop on and off easily and feel solid. However it weighs a tonne and is not ideal for pushing heat out if you're just using air cooling. I think the older Fractals or the NZXT 510 cases seem pretty good value. Enjoy the build

Hey, just going to weigh in! Hope you dont mind

I definitely agree with the other comment, the NZXT have been the best to build in, and have a great look IMO. I have built 5 PC's so far, and it was by far the easiest in the NZXT Mid tower.

every comment is very much appreciated
I have been reading a bit about NZXT H510 and it looks very solid, but then I read this opinion and suddenly became sceptical about the edges and finish. On top of that the recommended for noobies Meshify C which I will probably go for has slightly less restricted intake, Anyway, both seem to be a very decent choice, I am somewhere between those two, but slowly leaning toward meshify also judging by its looks!

The problem with the bx500 is that it's as slow as a USB stick when it's out of SLC cache.
aliexpress.com/ite…tml have a 2Tb Kingdian SSD for $182/£146 including postage. The SSD uses 3D NAND. From the 6500 user reviews on the page it's fast.

In this review they say it's almost as fast as a Samsung 860 evo, even at 80% full:

Use 1920gb as the SSD needs extra room for drive management. After partitioning and formatting you'll end up with a bit less. 6% of SSDs fail in the first few years, whatever the make.
