My small apartment-friendly rig

Post by kuzzia » Thu Oct 11, 2012 6:38 am

My system uses the same components as my previous system. Only the case and suspension system has changed.

My previous built (my thoughts about the components can also be read in this link):

My current built:

CPU: AMD Athlon II x3 425
CPU Cooler: Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Pro @ ~700 rpm
Motherboard: ASUS M4A88TD-m EVO/USB3
GPU: Powercolor Radeon 5750 SCS3 (passive, but Scythe Slipstream 800rpm @6-7V strapped on w. zip ties
Case: Cooler Master Elite 341 (fan mesh at rear fan cut off)
PSU: Corsair CX400W (fan-swap, Scythe Slipstream 800 rpm @6-7 V
SSD: Crucial M4 64 GB
HDD: Western Digital Green 500 GB (by far the noisiest component, but unnoticeable in noisy environment)
HDD suspension: Sharkoon Vibe Fixer
DVD-drive: external LG
Case fan: 1x rear exhaust Scythe Slipstream @ 5V

If you have any questions regarding my system, don't hesitate to ask :) I'll gladly answer them.
