[Build Log] Noobox

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I want to start by saying, thank you, to the OCN community for all your feed back, it was very helpful. Unfortunately i was unable to find a Hale90-650, they where out-of-stock everywhere when i made my purchases so i just went with the 750w, extra 20 bucks. However, got a killer deal on my 2500k, thanks Micro Center! Also, thank you Newegg for finally getting some p8p67 Pros in. Since i was able to shave off some money from a few other items also i dropped the CM n520 and went with a Antec Kuhler to cool my cpu.

So here here we go, my new build.

OS: Windows 7 home 64-bit -$99.99
Case: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White -$139.99
PSU: NZXT HALE90-750-M 750W -$139.99
Mobo: ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0) -$189.99
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz -$179.99
Cooling: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 -$69.99
GPU: EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti -$249.99
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 1600 (2 x 4GB) -94.99
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB -$49.99
Drive: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
Monitor: AOC e2343F Black & White 23" 5ms LED BackLight LCD -$164.99
Mouse: GIGABYTE GM-M6980 -$39.99

First Delivery, more to come.


PSU


UV Blue extensions

An unbelievably thin, awesome monitor, that matches my phantom perfectly


All installed


Kuhler keeping it cool


YES! no DOAs


I haven't overclocked the cpu yet but running crysis at 1080 and max setting and staying in the 30c's and 40c's with the kuhler 620 (peaked at 53c)
Will update again later when i have time to oc

I understand why you didn't sleeve your own cables. It's a great beginners build.

In the phantom only nzxt 200mm fans will fit (its like a few mms shy of 200) and they don't sell one with leds but they do make one. Don't know why.

Well I was going to sleeve um myself, but the mod rights were cheaper than materials and extentions.

Weird but okay =)
Cooler Master doesn't make 230mm fans for retail, yet they have a led one in their HAF X, any maybe the other variants, not sure. I would have gone all blue if I could find one. To be honest, I haven't seen a single 230mm fan for sale anywhere, much less a blue LED one.

Well, sleeving is much cleaner and gives you less wire tangle, even though it's the back compartment, and you won't see it. I chose sleeving over extensions although they were more expensive, just for that reason. BTW, have you seen my Operation Pikachu Build Log yet? It's still in progress.
