OVERVIEW

I build PCs for myself, friends and family. Because of that, I'm always picking up random parts.

Well, I have finally accumulated enough random parts to actually build an entire computer.

PARTS

Case: White Bitfenix Prodigy
Mobo: Biostar TH61
CPU: Intel i3-2100
RAM: 8GB PNY DD3-1333
CPU Cooler: NZXT T40
HDD: 750GB Samsung Spinpoint M8 2.5" 5400RPM
GPU: EVGA 9800 GT 512MB Akimbo
DVD-R/W: LiteOn 24X
PSU: Corsair CX430

CASE

Nothing out of the normal here. It's a white Bitfenix Prodigy.

MOBO/RAM/CPU

It's almost ignorant how large the NZXT T40 is on this board and in this case. It's completely overkill for the i3-2100 and I love every bit of it. It's mounted up with Arctic MX-2 paste.



















I swapped the NZXT fan out for a Bitfenix that matches the other fans in the case.

HDD

I reversed the direction of the HDD cages. I think it looks cleaner and I've personally tried to remove an HDD without unplugging it first. This way, the cords will be staring you in the face.







You can also see that I removed the front fan. It's been placed on the top, filtered hole behind the DVD drive as an intake.

GPU

The EVGA 9800GT Akimbo. This is a card I coveted when I first started playing WoW. When I got the chance to buy one new, I jumped on it -- despite the fact that I had absolutely no need for it. Nostalgia, I guess. Once the build is finished, I plan on bumping up the clocks. I know it's no longer a key player, but at 1600x900 or less, she should make a nice little gamer.

SOUND DAMPENING

I used some 1/8" foam with an adhesive back to line the side panels with the intention of deadening the sound a little bit. You can see that I messed up the cut on the GPU side a little. I'm not sure if it makes a difference or not. I can remove if it looks too bad.

SYSTEM

In these shots you can see just how ridiculous the T40 is in this thing. It's awesome. The fan is blowing through the fins and onto the back of the 9800 GT. The rear fan is set-up in exhaust and the top fan is set-up as an intake.











That's all I've got for now. To finish the build I had to order the PSU, DVD drive, and a few other odds an ends. They should be here by this weekend so stay subbed!

Thanks.
