Low Budget Outlaw

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So this computer i'll admit is made up of used and/or left over parts. Some new ones to due to necessity. In the last few months I've come across a few good parts in the local used market. I recently tried to "flip" the one good deal I got for other parts, but I wasn't about to trade a $200+ power supply for a used external hard drive. So tonight I decided to just pull the listing and use the thing.

Quick disclaimer. My camera sucks (5mp) and I think the lens is dirty.

The case is a Bifenix Outlaw I picked up for $20. It's my first reverse ATX case, still not sure if I like it. Here's a photo of it stripped down.


I Pounced on an I5-760 attached to an MSI P55A-GD65 for $70. Here it is with a Hyper 212 EVO attached. Stock coolers = puke.gif


For the power supply a few months ago I got an OCZ Champ1on series Fatal1ty 1000 watt fully sleeved modular power supply. For the price i got it at I had to take it especially considering it was still in the plastic wrap!!


Got a refurbed Corsair force 120gb SSD to boot from. Not sure if I'm going to put a mechanical drive in. I'll probably end up streaming most content to it. I don't intend on playing games on it a whole lot.
[insert focused picture here}

For the gpu I am yet again recycling my trusty crusty 5770. It's not the greatest by any means but it works. It's nearly silent with the Arctic Cooling Accelero on it.

I also threw in a generic wireless pci-e card from d-link.

Still debating what kind of fans to put in. I'll probably throw in a few of either the plain no light Bitfenix specter pros or Corsair af120 quiets.

Tonight I did the basic install, nothing too fancy.

It looks like i'm going to have a tight fit between the top of the 212 and the side panel.



An unexpected bonus of the reverse ATX design is that the wireless card (in the bottom slot) antennas stick up over the top of the case. Hopefully that should eliminate some interference for a better signal yada, yada.


Holy moly the cables on the power supply were stiff. It wasn't a big issue, but I don't have any small zip ties right now. Hopefully in the next day or 2 they'll relax a bit.


That's it for today. It's almost time to go to work. mad.gif
I still have to get some fans.
Maybe a simple fan controller. O I'll just run them at 7v.
Something to put in the pci slots.
Dig out my black sata cables from where ever they are.

For spare parts it's not too bad. I built in the Outlaw once. The manual was useless and the screws were not labeled so I was wondering why the SSD screws weren't screwing into the motherboard standoffs...
