Here is my first try at building a custom PC. Nothing fancy but it will be fast! I will add stuff such as another ATI card to run crossfire and some more drives, maybe even a passive set up eventually.
It's a Lian Li PC-7B Plus Silent Warrior 140 case (from...http://www.performance-pcs.com
). The case has three 140mm AeroCool Streamliners (54.7cfm) (front, side, top) and one 120mm AeroCool XtremeTurbine (89.39cfm) (rear). Also my Corsair power supply has a 120mm fan. So I should stay fairly cool.
Hardware that I installed...
Asus P5W DH Deluxe Mobo
Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 2.93GHz 1066FSB 4MB Cache
Corsair XMS2 6400 2048MB (2x1GB) 4-4-4-12 TWIN2X2048-6400C4
ATI Radeon X1900 XTX 512MB
Western Digital Raptor 10,000RPM 150GB
Plextor PX-755SA DVD±R/RW CD-R/RW SATA
Viewsonic 19in LCD VX922
For now I will be using the stock CPU cooler but I hope to change it at some point. Tuesday I should have my RAM and then I will fire it up.
