[Build Log] Gilles3000's Media PC mini build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Its time to replace my little media pc, so i picked up a nearly new asus barebones system and a HD4850 for €100.biggrin.gif

Specs:

CPU: intel core 2 quad q8200
GPU: ASUS HD4850 1GB
PSU: 300W stock unit.
Mobo: Asus 775 atx.... (Don't know the exact model will edit later.)
Sorage: 350GB WD Blue
Ram: 4GB DDR2 crap sticks.

Ok, here we go:

Results:
- a WD 750gb blue drive
- 2 sticks of somewhat broken ddr2 ram
-a WLAN card
-a 8600gt with 2 blown caps, still works tho.
- And last but not least, an awesome 3500RPM Delta fan.


Honestly, I never expected to find a delta in this system.It never made any noise, maybe it never went over 1500rpm, pretty nice find imo. biggrin.gif


This is pretty much how i recieved the system.


The GPU.


The assembled system.


Coming up,
-Tomorrow, Ordering a new cooler and fans.
-This weekend, Final assembly if parts arrive in time.

I was thinking about getting the hyper tx3 evo, but if anyone has a better alternative, i'm all ears. I value silence above performance and the cooler can't be taller then 140mm. so it will have to be a small cooler or a downdraft cooler.

Little update:

Got my cooler & accessories today. Will be installing them tomorrow alongside with a little side- and front panel mod.

Here are some more results

2. cpu @ 2.45 ghz passes , max temp 58°c
3. cpu @ 2.52 ghz passes, max temp 60°c

Scythe BS2 results:

1. Cpu @ 2.52 ghz max temp 55°c

More tests will follow after i get some new fans, this scythe fan sounds a bit annoying and doesn't perform that well and the delta is just too loud.
