Dat first build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So after a few adjustments and a lot of extra money I probably should of saved, I have finally gotten the first build done. Was originally going to be an AMD build, then the hex core, then Sandy Bridge, finally ended with this.


I5-2500k
Gigabyte P67A-UD3
Gigabyte GTX 460
G.Skill Ripjaw 1600mhz 4 gigs
Cooler Master Silent Pro Modular 600w PSU
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500gb 7200 RPM
CM Storm Scout

and on the way is a Hyper 212+ and Arctic Silver 5 paste.

Overall I'm very pleased, will be more pleased once the heatsink gets here. Eventually I'll want to do something crazier, but honestly it was a budget build (Around 850 after rebates) to run WoW and a few other games on, which it does without a problem.

Anyways, sorry for crappy pics. I'm really annoyed with the cord over the mobo and video card, which I will probably fix when I add the heat sink, especially seeing as I bought an extension cord for it and totally forgot to use it. I'm going to try and steal my friends' camera to get much better quality pictures and angles.











Oh, and I took the cathode out. As cool as it was every once in a while, i feel it just congested the bottom of the case and made it look ugly.

A few issues though. When I went to remove the front to remove the tray for the DVD drive, it cracked right through the word scout. It's hardly noticeable and probably an error on my part, but I couldn't help but feel it was just weak and should be made to be pulled open with some amount of force.

I also wasn't too fond of the little amount of room in the back for cable management. The lack of a hole at the top near the RAM made it kind of rough as I hated bundling it all near the graphics card. It was my first time with cable management and although I'm mostly pleased, I know I could of definitely done much better.

But with all of that said, it runs awesome and I can't even hear it at night if I wanted to. Miles better than the Q6600 I was still on.

Dorm life FTL.
