Hey all, I was told to start my very own build log here. I haven't built a machine since, well let's just say I built an Intel Duo machine. So my experience is fairly minimal, but I enjoyed building then, so I'm sure it'll still be a treat now. I plan on using this rig for multiple purposes. Gaming is a high priority. High resolution image editing, and video editing will be conducted daily. I'll be sure to snap some photos! Everything is currently being delivered, I expect to have this beauty built before the weekend!

 

Here are the parts I'll be working with. I'm also getting a mouse, keyboard, headset, and possibly speakers. I'll be sure to show that later in the process.

 

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V3 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Crucial M500 480GB 2.5" Solid State Disk 
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Rosewill Fortress 650W 80+ Platinum Certified ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Pioneer BDR-209DBK Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer

 

 

 

I needed something for a small space, the dimensions on this desk seemed perfect!

Tomorrow I should be getting the desk, and case. So the journey begins tomorrow!
