Decided that my first post would be here
My previous rig (Q9550-460GTX SLI-780i SLI-TX650 etcetc) was pretty much noisy as hell.
So I sold it mid-january and decided to build my new pc as silent as I could with limited resources.
And for the curious ones, here's a pic of the old machine:
Asucks P8P67-M (replacing it to P8P67-M Pro B3 next month)
i5 2500K @4Ghz cooled by Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 which stock fan swapped to Scythe Gentle Typhoon 92mm 1700rpm
2x4GB DDR3-1333 CL9 Team Group Elite
eVGA 8800GTS 320
Seasonic S12II 380
2x 1Tb HDD and 1x bluray
1x Gentle Typhoon 120mm 1450rpm + 2x AC F8 Pro PWM
And all stuffed into Cooler Master Centurion 540
*snip snip ugly looking picture when it is so big*
I'll add more pictures of the insides when I have the time to take photos
Probably later today
E: Okay. Finally got around to shutting down my computer as it finished a ROQS wu to aqua.
So, some pictures now.
I paid 30euros for this case, and I absolutely love it. Previous case I had was a humongous Fractal which I didn't like at all and it cost me almost 100euros discluding shipping grrr
And the front end of this CM, wow, only 30euros and it feels/looks to me alot more higher quality than the one on the previous case.
You'll probably notice the PST sticker, yeah it's crooked but I don't mind
I also showed the front and rear end fan meshes a little *snip snip* and now the air flows MUCH
Before if I put my hand on the front surface of the case where the fan is, I couldn't feel the air flow, now it is very much present.
It's a bit messy inside but I did all I could to hide them wires.
About the future..
Im going to swap my psu to Enermax Modu87+ 500 before the end of summer.
Also when I change the psu the 8800GTS goes to retirement as I'm planning on to get a 550Ti or perhaps 560Ti from nVidia.
So, what do you think of my boincer?
Comments very very welcome
