Fractal Design Define S Build

philip Oct. 6, 2015

New office means new computers for everyone. Barry helps out tremendously behind the scenes with part entry and lots of other site internals that help keep things running smoothly. He's also an avid gamer - and despite Ryan's digs, he does play more than just minecraft. We do take gaming seriously in the office - and unlike many places it's not a fireable offense. So we wanted to make sure his system had enough horsepower so he could play games in between getting work done... but without breaking the budget.

philip Sept. 26, 2015

We worked with Amazon to put together a budget gaming build centered around the FX-6300. Unfortunately due to issues outside our control we were delayed in getting hold of some of the parts, so this build video came a bit later than we had hoped.

NZXT S340 Razer Edition Build

philip Sept. 11, 2015

Moving into the new office, we decided to build Jack a new dev machine. Jack helps with coding the site, but also loves to play games - "It's compiling!" he says... So this build is a mix of productivity for software development and gaming. We received the new NZXT S340 Razer Edition case, so given Jack's affinity for Razer we decided to use it for his work system.
