my crazy build

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hi guys,

first off i'd like to say this is my first time writting up a "build log"....so be gentle.

I am coming from an:
AMD 4200+ X2 / Asus A8N32-Sli / 7900 Gtx / 2GB Mushkin DDR / 600W x-finity psu / Lian li pc767

to

Intel C2D E6700 / Abit AB9 Quad GT / 8800 Gtx / 2GB Geil Ultra DDR2 / 750W Silverstone PSU / Coolermaster Evo 830

attached are pics of the brand spankin new components....(yummmyyy..)

the lot!!


the Mobo


the Video Card


the CPU


the Memory


Scythe Kamameter


----------

Starting to build here......You will notice that my case is a lian li case.... but later towards the end...ive changed it...

the mobo..the sweet smelling scent of a new hardware being opened for the first time.....(sniffs....)


-----


Unboxed the CPU.....this is exciting....


Mounted the cpu and the Scythe Infinity...this thing is huge...




Installed the mobo...




Its time to install the Scythe Kama meter




Its time to install the video card....or as i like to call it...."El ViCardo"




Now that all the components are in, i just add the finishing touches....

* plug in all the cables
* Install DVD-RW
* Install Vista Ultimate


the finished product....

But wait, theres moreeeeeeeeee

I swapped all the major parts, so i decided to buy a new case too...I chose the CoolerMaster Evo 830....

and my god.....this is case is nice....
there are no pics of me pulling out everything and installing it again.....BUT i do some end result pics....











Installing the Ultimate.....


Once i got everything up and running - i tried my luck in OC'ing....and surprise surprise....





i got it running at 3.48 @ 1.44v with mem timings at 4-4-4-12. But i dint want to push it too much....so i backed it down to 3.33 @ 1.41 at same mem timings.

due to melbourne weather (cold) and the fact that ive got 5 120mm running , im running idle at 35-36c load at 44-45c.

i hope you guys had as much fun going thru this as i did building it....

any feedback will be cool

hey budgeteer.....i would but i sold it to pay for this monster.....

all up....i sold my old rig for $11-1200au....and bought the new stuff for $1800au ...which is fair i guess.

the GTX is a calibre (sparkle) card....but it did cause me some grief in the beginning...coz the fans werent turning AT ALL!!!....i had to do mcgayver move and connect the gtx's fans directly to the 3pin on the mobo. will post pics tonite.
