6core AMD build for my Bro

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hey there people

I've just finished building my bro's new computer for his X-mas present and i though I'd share it with you all, cuz I'm kind like that lol
So here Goes

this first pic is When all the parts arrived



Here's a list of all the parts I used in the build

Case- NZXT M59 Classic Series, Black,
CPU- Phenom II x6 1055t
Mobo- Gigabyte GA-880GMA-UD2H MoBo AM3
Ram- 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair XMS3 DDR3 PC3-12800 (1600)
HDD- 1TB Western Digital WD1002FAEX Caviar Black, SATA 6Gb/s
PSU- 520W Seasonic M12II-520, Modular, 80 PLUS Bronze

Now a look at the case, for a cheap case it comes with some good features. like tool less HDD mounts and an SSD mount. It also has water cooling hose holes at the back and plenty of room for a rad at the top. I didn't use these on this build however as my bro didn't want anything to complicated






This next pic shows what you get with the case


Now for the motherboard, i didnt take many pics of the board sorry


Ill just take that label off


here's one with the CPU installed


this one is a pic of the HDD going in using the tool less drawer slides.(I love tool less setups lol)


Now for the PSU


As you can see by this picture they give you a neat little bag with all the extra leads in plus the mounting screws


Now for some installation

As you can see the board looks a little dwarfed by the case. This is because I already bought the mobo for a smaller case but my bro wanted this case instead. on the bright side it adds for a little more airflow room lol

Now i almost forgot about the Ram, so here it is

and here it is installed


Now this next picture is when i tried to fit GTX260 which i had lying around, unfortunately i cant use it. you can see why below


it covers the bloody sata ports! Instead I'm gonna have to use the card that's in my bros old pc which I think is an 9800GT.
so no pics of that until after x-mas when i go up and set it all up for him.

Now some of the more keener eyed of you would have noticed I haven't installed any optical devices yet, well there's a good reason I only recently put a blu-ray drive in my bro's old pc so when I take this one to him I'll be swapping it over.

so finally here is the last two pics for now





Thanks for reading guys, I know its no Crysis basher but it'll do for my bro.
Ill add the final pics after X-mas

Oh yeah it'll be running windows 7 pro aswell

nice... just a shame you cant put that GTX260... kinda silly :S
no way that you could make it fit? like get some of those 90ºangle sata cables?

try posting a few pictures of a closeup, im sure someone in this forum has had the same issue and has found a way around it

Cheers dude.
i cant wait to boot this up too see how fast it runs. I read up on a bunch of reviews for the board before i bought it but there was an asus for my 2nd choice cant remeber which one it was now though.

post #10 of 32
Very generous brother!

I had the same problem with my GT8XXX and Gigabyte board - A GAMA78GM-US2H* and the sata port / GPU issue.

I guess there aren't many people running big cards on small mobos!





*do a get +1 geekpoint for remembering a mobo's model # from 12 months ago?
