New HTPC Build

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I will be building my HTPC this weekend. Here is a group shot of all the goods. The system is a bit overkill I think but I don't mind. I'll definitely use it for gaming also. I still need to pick out a keyboard/mouse and some kind of media remote maybe the Lenovo media remote.



All this will be used on this..

Well I managed to stuff everything in. I'll start hooking up cables tomorrow.

Should I leave the PSU in this position or flip in around so it gets cool air?

Hey!

Nothing as fun for the computer literate than that kitchen table, couch, or desk full of new components, right?

Would love to have a list of the components You purchased, to help follow Your set-up exactly.

And, don't be shy with the camera - and once everything posts - some bench/vid/game screenshots!

Here's what I have:

Lian Li PC-C60 case (Black)
ASUS P9X79 Deluxe mobo
Intel i7-3820 CPU
Noctua NH-C14 CPU cooler with LGA2011 mounting kit (Perfect fit for the Lian Li)
EVGA GTX 670 Superclocked
Kingston HyperX 16GB Kit (4x4GB) - DDR3 1866MHz
Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 240GB
Corsair AX750 PSU
LG Super Multi Blu-ray drive (very important as a longer optical drive won' fit next to the NH-C-14)

I will get one or two more regular HDD's for my media.

Still haven't decided on what keyboard/mouse + media remote to get.

I hooked everything up temporary to see if everything works. All seems good and dead silent. thumb.gif

The ASUS mobo has the protective stickers on the heat sinks. They are difficult to see. The EVGA GTX had the regular ones you can see but if you look close it has another on all the emblems. Make sure to take these off.
