Hello all! I haven't built a PC in about 14 years, but I had to get back into it once I saw Valve's Steam Machine Beta. I knew a prebuilt system wasn't for me. I just needed the right case to come along to get me some decent power and to use with my HDTV.
Fortunately RVZ01 came along at the right time as I am now a proud owner of this beautiful case.
All my parts are in and it is rather similar to the beta Steam Machine specs.
Here it is:
Cooler Master Seidon 120v
Gigabyte GA Z87N WiFi ITX
16 gigs Crucial Ballistix Sport Ram
EVGA GTX 780
1 TB Seagate SSHD
SFX 450 G PSU
PP05-E Short Flat PSU cables
I will take pics of my parts and post them in this thread soon. This forum was recommended by the fellow I bought my GTX 780 off of. He said this was a very helpful community so I took his word for it and joined.
The only thing I am nervous about is applying my thermal paste correctly and placing my Seidon 120v on top of my CPU. I have read that putting 2mm pea sized ammount in the center of CPU and applying a certain ammount of pressure when placing my cooler on is the right way, but I don't want to put too little or too much paste on. I still have to read what Cooler Master says about it.
My aim is to have this build done by this Sunday or into early next week. Hopefully I don't run into any snags.
