post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

I want to use this rig for gaming and a bit of photoshop.
Yesterday i got the last parts so i could boot up my i5 rig, its not complete so dont expect anything crazy.
REMEMBER IM ONLY 13
So im recycling maybe 1 or 2 things from other PCs that still work perfectly, such as the crappy ATI Radeon X300 128mb WILL DEFIANTLY BE REPLACED with a EVGA Geforce GTX460 1gb or a EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked but with the extra 60 bucks the 560 costs i could get a 4pack of gelid wings. I wanted to go with the Green colour originally but my mobo is blue, once i have my hyper 212+ and 460 i will be purchasing some bitspower 30cm UV lights to go with the UV reactive 120mm Gelid wings.


Intel i5 2500k
Asus P8P67
Coolermaster HAF 912 Advanced
Kingston DDR3 2x2gb RAM
Seagate Barracuda 1Tb + Western Digital 80gb
Corsair HX650


EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked
CoolerMaster Hyper 212+
Bitspower Dual 30cm UV kit
Gelid Wing UV Reative blue 6pack













Sorry About The Video Quality
If you reckon anything on the future part list i could improve on just let me know!

Excellent build, and nice attention to detail/cable management. +Rep for you. I wish I could have done this @ 13!

EDIT: This and another fan for some push/pull action.

Don't forget the TIM: (people's opinions differ on the subject, but I like the ones that aren't conductive. You know, just in case things get messy).

EDIT2: Just seen that you have the 212 as a future purchase. I would actually try to find a 560Ti for your GPU upgrade. I think you'd be much happier with an updated card that runs cooler and quieter. Just my 2 cents.

This is also a decent card: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=16578

You could get cheaper fans and paint them yourself. See the guide in my Sig for more info. And know that blue will look almost white under UV lights. Again, good job on your first Rig.

Thanks, Haha i have seen this tutorial heaps of times great tut BTW!

Very nice first time build, especially your cable management. I second the 560Ti over the 460 upgrade as well. You will be much happier as these cards can reach 570 performance when overclocked. As far as your color scheme goes, have you looked on FrozenCPU.com. They have excellent prices for Cold Cathode UV light kits in various colors. Maybe you can do both green and blue. Also, when you get your 212+, be sure to put TIM in the gaps between the heatpipes where it will be contacting the CPU as well as on top of the CPU heatspreader. The line method seemed to work very well for me (I also have the 212+), but you can use the dot method as well. Again, great job on your first build and welcome to OCN

I just looked at frozenCPU and when i get my 560 and hyper 212+ i will probably buy 4 15" UVs since UV isn't that bright and im still not sure what color Blue or Green.

BTW This TIM stuff is it thermal paste?
post #9 of 22
Yes, TIM is Thermal Interface Material.
Also, nice build with great cable management! When I was 13 I didn't give two @#$%s about cable management. Then again, Windows 3.1.1 was the hot new OS and NEC was still a competitive PC OEM...

Very nice! Rep+ for your troubles. Check my build out, it's similar to yours click on the link in my sig.

Tell me, are you having the problem where the mobo causes the computer to boot up- shut down - and boot up again after a cold bootup? Let me know!
