[Build Log] Code Blu i5

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone! This is my first log attempt although I have built a few computers in my day. It will consist of parts I mostly already have but with some recently purchased upgrades. This PC is mainly used for gaming, browsing and a bit of media editing such as Photoshop. Now having the i5 "under water" I will most likely try a bit of overclocking.

LOL I knew that was the first thing I would get asked about tongue.gif

It is no doubt overkill for my current setup, but I got it for a steal of $100 from a buddy who used it for a whole 3 months and needed cash.

My current Alienware case and PSU only fit each other so once I do this switch I will use them for a spare parts build thumb.gif

I'm just waiting on said PSU to get here either Friday or Saturday to start the switch thumb.gif

June 27th Update: PSU has arrived just need to find the time off to start building thumb.gif

Build is currently together although I didn't mount the h105 or light kit yet

More Pics excluding a few of the motherboard for some reason cause I was in a hurry lol and still yet to do proper wire management.

The new setup is 100x more quiet than what I was using before, even with all fans at 100% thumb.gif
