The temperatures have hit all time low.
The previous temps. were;

- System, 95 degreed F (35 C)
The new temps. are;
- CPU, 60.8 degrees F (16 C)
- System, 73.4 degrees F (23 C)

The new case is running on my new motherboard and RAM (16GB) and my old CPU + cooler.
Also I've overclocked the CPU by 20%. It should now be 4.3GHz instead of 3.0GHz.

I got to say that he runs a lot faster then before.

A quick assembly. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Soon i'll order some sleeving, modular PSU and some extra fans.


Any suggestions, questions or comments are always welcome.


First thing I would spend some money on is a decent PSU will not cost you much for your system and will make things a lot better and safer for the PC. What is the type of PSU you have in this PC??

or

Spend some money on a quality 500-600 watt PSU, (preferably 650w if you get into gaming) that way you can get a gpu in the future if you so desire, and even if you don't, that power supply will last you a good while. What I would then do is get a good air cooler or even a CLC for your CPU. If you can get that thing to 4.3 ghz on the stock cooler, god knows how high that thing to go to with a real cooler. (no offense to intel stock coolers of course) Also, are you making your own cables or are you resleeving whichever PSU's cables you will get?

I'm thinking of adding a GPU. So like you say it might be a good idea to go high on the PSU.
Maybe a little odd question but what is CLC?

The higher the GHz the better! Right? tongue.gif
I'll just be resleeving the cables.


Since a couple of days i'm cutting my budget down a little. Because i'm planning to move out and get my own place.
But that doesn't mean this project is getting to a halt, it just means that i'm going to try to get everything as cheap as possible without the quality going down.

Since I figured out that the green lights I wanted to put in my room don't fit, i'm going with the black and white scheme for my pc.

next week when I get my salary i'll purchase some fans and sleeving and maybe even some led lights for in my pc.

Any suggestions, questions or comments are always welcome.

For people who wants to see pictures, here is one of all the dead HDD I have.

CLC is a Closed Loop Cooler. I currently have the H220 by Swiftech - http://www.swiftech.com/LC_kits.aspx Some other options would be Corsair - http://www.corsair.com/us/cpu-cooling-kits/hydro-series-water-cooling-cpu-cooler.html

NZXT and other companies make them as well.
