First legit build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I scrounged up enough money to build my computer, sorry for the lack of pictures, I built this a month or so ago, I don't come here often.
Well here I go:
Processor:
GPU: i5-2500k with Evo 212
Mobo: MSI Z77A-G41
RAM: 4 sticks of Crucial Ballistix sport (16gb)
Fans: 2 Rosewill RFA-120s
Storage: 2x Caviar green 1tb HDDs & a 500GB Samsung 2.5'' HDD
PSU: Raidmax hybrid 530W
Case: HAF 912


The HDDs you see aren't plugged in, I was rushed when taking these pictures. With those drives it's a total.
These pictures are also dated, you don't see the extra fans I have in there, nor the samsun HDD.

The front with the fan controller that I hate.

Side with the miss-colored LEDs.

This is around 15 minutes after I built the dang thing, it's in the test desk I have.
If you have any questions/suggestions please, please, tell me.


Thanks for reading/showing an interest.

it looks like your doing ok. things you could improve on are psu,and some better cable management. looks like your set up pretty good every where else. i know parts aren't cheap.but please replace that psu.

which way is that fan blowing on your heatsink? i would reverse it to push air toward the back fan.

The psu is fine, the only reason to upgrade your graphics card is if you want to play games at high to ultra settings. Other than that, the only thing that you can do is add an SSD. If you have an available sata port( 6 Gbps proffered for ssds). Sata 3 will also work for an SSD.
