Fractalical BUILD!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well coming from my i7 classified wc sig rig that I decided to sell what seems like years ago. I've come back to AMD and made a budget rig...I had a 600 dollar budget, that budget has now turned into 800-900...and as I suspected the addiction kicked back in and "budget" just doesn't seem like the right word for this build anymore. I have a feeling that by summer, I'll be back to Intel...with Sandy Bridge but for now this will do.

Since my last build mainly consisted of red components, this time it will be blue. So without further a DEWWWWWWW here is the parts list:

- AMD Phenom II x6 1090T
- Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
- 8gb 4x2gb Kingston Hyperx Blue 1600mhz
- EVGA Superclocked GTX 460 1gb
- EVGA Superclocked GTX 460 1gb
- Silverstone DA700 700w Power Supply
- 640gb Western Digital Caviar Blacks(taken from my old rig)
- X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Sound Card (taken from old rig)
- MDPC-X Magic B Sleeving w/ MDPC-X Black Sleeving
- Fractal Design Define r3
- Venomous X Black Edition Heatsink

Future plans:
- SSD
- WC

Anywho, I'm running a 1055t right now, waiting for the rest of the parts to come tomorrow. You can see how this 600 dollar budget turned to 800. The original plan was 1 gtx 460, but since microcenter had the EVGA's for sale at 177 dollars + 30$ MIR I could not pass it up. I started with an AMD Phenom II x2 560, then to a 1055t....now to a 1090t in about 3 days LOL. Changed my powersupply from the toughpower xt to the silverstone da700 (fully modular), went from 4gb of ram to 8gb of ram....it's never ending. Next the Venoumous X Black edition won't be enough for me and will probably have WC in this rig in the next month haha (cross my fingers that I can control myself so that my bank account won't be hurting).


pics coming soon!

Fractal design <3 I'm such a fanboy, yet.. I don't own one :'(
I can't blame you for bumping up to the 1090t and 8gb of ram, the 1090t is like $20 more and ddr3 is sooo cheap now so why not

yeah I've been fan boy for a while now but couldn't justify the 60 dollar shipping from ncix. Fortunately there was someone selling theirs in my area for 70 so I took it, UNfortunately the front panel io is missing some cords and the fans seemed to have been messed with but that's okay the rest of the case is awesomeness.

Anyway I don't really want to cut into the case, so if or when I go WC it would have to be a 240 rad + 2 120 rads.

Looking forward to seeing this build. I've been checking into those cases for a bit. Curious to see how it works out.

can't wait for my sleeving to come in! RAWR! I have only seen 1 fractal define r3 that was watercooled, unless I'm not looking hard enough there is a good chance I will want to go down this road...stay tuned.

I know what you mean with budgets going out of the window ^^
It's "Ooh i can get something better for £30 more!, my budget can handle that"
"Ooh that looks nice only £15 more"
"Hmm £50 more for this case? Go on then it looks too good..."
A few £30 increases and before oyu know it you've gone £300 over budget ^^
I've been researching parts for my new build for a while now and it gets harder not to get somrthing a little better every day ^^
Trying to hold out for Bulldozer but that's also getting harder every day
Anyway, looks amazing so far, subbed to see the final thing
