[Build Log] Outdated revival - Making an old system become new again

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I have been away a while due to my current pc being used by a family member, but I have finally gotten it back. My sig rig is extremely outdated now and this is where I will slowly be showing my progress for the update. My plan as of now is to replace pretty much everything and turn what's left over into a HTPC or something but that's an entire different conversation. I will be ordering phase 1 this week probably so I hope to have some pictures up soon.

Future parts list:

The parts will be bought in phases and integrated into the running system I already have.
Phase 1:
SilverStone TJ04B-E*DONE*

Smallish SSD for a boot drive, probably 128GB or less.
I have decided on this SSD.
Corsair 120gb *DONE*

EDIT: 8/8 So my power supply decided to die on me. I decided to replace it with a Corsair HX750. I may end up giving the whole PSU a sleeving job, but I need to get some pin removing tools for that.

Corsair HX750*DONE*

Yes I realize some people will think it is idiotic to buy a new case when I already have a case, but my case is in pretty bad shape and I want to start clean. I plan to use the SSD with my current system until I have acquired the rest of the parts.

Phase 2:
XFX 7950 Core Edition 3Gb GDDR5*DONE*

This will be used with my current motherboard/CPU. It will probably bottleneck the CPU with this level GPU but it won't be for long hopefully.

Phase 3:

Haswell i7 4770K

ASrock Z87 Extreme4
Corsair Dominator 16GB DDR3 1866

Corsair H80i Cooler

Lamptron FC5-V3 Fan Controller

I also want to do a few other mods such as a window, and a lighted divider panel for the bottom of the case. Will be updated.

You can not use a Z77 with a LGA1150 cpu, you need a Z87 board.

Thanks for pointing that out, I had the wrong board linked on here but it was right in my Newegg wishlist haha.

UPDATE: I just got phase 1 ordered so it should be here this week.

Well sorry this update is so late. I got all of the fan cables and front panel cables sleeved as well as got my new PSU and SSD installed. The system is up and running with what is left of my sig rig, plus the new components.
