A fabulous system Raedwulf. You have an impressive storing space in hard drives and that 500 Gb SSD looks great, presume it's for the OS. You don't mention but I guess you are running Windows 7 X64 SP2. I understand you are a Windows 7 hardcore fan. Now, just my opinion, but SSD runs better and safer under Windoes 10! Your waterproof keyboard is a "must have" ... presume it's also coffee-proof! I know too many computer users who "killed" or "drowned" the keyboard with coffee, beer or whiskey

That's one hell of a computer................ well done.

I recently built my current computer saving up for each part purchasing and waiting until I had all the parts need and then built it. I ended up with a faulty power supply which was replaced under warranty but it fried my motherboard so had to replace that too. This time round I picked the components on my own instead of going with a shop recommendation.

will list components when I've got a bit of time lol...

This Computer would be my third build and as previously stated I selected the components giving me the best result yet I know there is room for more.

In the future I'm installing RGB led fans and a curved monitor but thats not a priority yet. 

Built on a disabled pension budget saved hard for each component!

WAIT Hang on a minute wheres the RAM lol and while I'm at it the Keyboard & mouse...........geez ol timer's disease.

  • Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 3200MHz Memory 
  • HyperX Alloy Core RGB Keyboard and mouse to suit both corded

 

well that's all folks

Sorry guys but I don't do anything but laptops or more specifically MacBook Pro. Luckily the charity pays for it so it saves me a fortune.

Raedwulf: VERY impressive build -- I especially like the colorful keyboard and mouse.

And do my eyes deceive me? A new motherboard that ALSO has a PCI slot??  I though all of those died out years ago!

I used to use ASUS board myself on all my builds. The last one I used was an A8N32-SLI board which worked great for years and then one day, it just burnt out!  I replaced it with a Gigabyte board and have used those, since.

Just Fan cooled. I will open it up and blow out my fans. Need to do that every once in a while. See if that cools it down a hair

the liquid cooler unit i purchased was very reasonably priced and pretty easy to install.. with like World War Z running at full performance, boarding my gfx out.. it keeps my cpu nice and cool at about 18C or 64F.. i also have 2 - 180mm fans to cool down the rest of the goods.. u might wanna look into getting one to keep that sweet i7 nice and frosty??

My first computer was Intel it lasted 5 years and I wanted/needed a second computer. The shop I bought the second recommended AMD so I went with it. A few years later I wanted to build my own and went with AMD again and have been with them since. I'll stick to AMD now although I did consider Intel for my build posted here. I decided to go with what I know and stuck with AMD....

I think cost is a factor as I believe Intel can be costly however I'm not 100% sure................:excl:

I haven't built a tower in many years (I use to have 13 towers, 4 monitors, 4 inkjet printers, 2 B&L Laser printers, 2 Color Laser printers = Dang Ex-Wife Smoked on shot them up (Drugs)

I've got 7 Laptops now, But I want a powerful tower system now and not for gaming - It's I just have the Need for Speed

Oh and I'm in y'alls boat also as I'm Disabled and will have to buy parts a little at a time

Thank you all for the info on y'alls builds as it will help me :thankyou:
