    Hi Guys

    I currently have a
    Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P sat in CiT Saturn Midi Tower Gaming Case with 2 x Red LED Fans. I f was to upgrade MB can i still use that case? Are there any new connections etc on newer MBs that would cause issue?

    Also depending on MB if it is DDR4, will my existing DDR3 ram work with it?
    12GB DDR3 Corsair 1600 (3 x 4Gb)

    TIA

    The only new connections I'm aware of that need something from the case are USB3 headers which are different to USB2 headers. You don't have them on the case or the motherboard you mention so not an issue.

    DDR3 and DDR4 are not compatible in any way.
