Thread: I am going to have a FUN christmas

  1. #1

    Default I am going to have a FUN christmas

    I bought a new computer in parts as a christmas gift for myself.

    And yes, I prefer to build it myself, that's half the fun
    I plan to take pictures during the build that I can post if anyone is interested.

    I made a mistake! The Fractal R4 chassi does not have enough room for the motherboard (xl atx) and power supply (height wise)

    I'm off tomorrow to get an Antec P280 (the R4 I can use to house and silcene my server instead)

    My specs are :
    CPU : Intel Core i7-3930K 6-Core, 3.2GHz, 12MB, 130W
    Cooling : Noctua NH-U14S Slim tower cooler
    GPU : Gainward GeForce GTX 780 3GB "Phantom - GLH" (Factory overclocked with non reference cooler)
    Motherboard : MSI Big Bang-XPower II, Socket-2011
    Memory : Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MH Kit w/4x4GB, CL9-9-9-27
    HD : Samsung SSD 840 PROSeries (one 128 GB for OS and one 256 GB for games), WD Desktop Green 3TB (for storage)
    Power : Corsair RM650, 650W PSU Modular cables
    OS : Windows 7 Home Premium (OEM version)
    + various peripherals...

    The price was about 3.500$ USD or 2575 Euro (that is around 23.000 swedish kronor)

    Still waiting for Intel to ship me my i7 4930K. Can't argue with a price of $179, but '4-6 weeks' shipping time is grueling. :X

    Can never have enough tools!

    Swiss army knife?

  7. #7


    I got a new case (Antec p280) and could finally assemble everything.

    Yes acorn, that is indeed a swiss army knife. I only needed that and a philips screwdriver to put it all together.

    After all was installed, I just had to test it with 3dmark11.
    I got 13485 point

    And I got 7.8 windows points (7.9 is max) DAMN what does it take to max it out?

    This computer is really quiet, even under full load, but that was what I was aiming for.

    Bunch of pictures ahead....
