The Developed Rig

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So this is where I started off at Christmas.



Used Coolermaster 330 Case
Coolermaster Brand 460W PSU
AMD Phenom II X2 550
Geil 4GB DDR3 2133MHZ
ASUS M4A785-TD V Evo Mobo
LG DVD-RW
Western Digital 1TB Caviar Green HDD
Corsair H50 CPU Cooler


After my old AM2 Athlon Computer broke with a HD4670 I needed to build a new computer from scratch so this is what happened!



This motherboard was such an improvment from my previous Gigabyte GA MA770DS3 with a integrated graphics chipset that would let me do light gaming for the time being and all the backpanel connectivity I can dream of!



The Corsair H50 watercooling kit required me to take off the provided Backplate off the motherboard at the moment and the bracket on the top needed to come off



After those bits were done it was time to prepare to mount the motherboard



In goes the CPU!



QConnectors are a lifesaver



If you ever get the opportunity of fitting a Corsair H50, two pair of hands can make the process a lot quicker when fixing the raidiator!



The Basic stages of the rig are now finished! I inserted the RAM, HDD and the Disc Drive and it did start up first time perfectly

A few months past after the build and it ran perfectly with Windows 7! But I was starting to get fed up with the lack of frames in games with only an integrated HD 4200 Chipset. So again a bit more cash was splashed on this little baby





My rig was now starting to look a lot like a gaming machine!


However, I was still lacking a good monitor and case to go with the components I had bought so this was the transition I made!





This included:

A brand New Coolermaster Storm Scout
Benq 24" Backlit monitor
Logitech G11 Keyboard for good measures!

It's been a great companion for me so far and hasn't let me down. Next thing on the shopping list will be a 4GB DDR3 upgrade and one of the new X6 Thunban Processors when they come out! Happy Rig Building People!
