Looking to build a Quiet, High performance, All Purpose, Reliable computer I decided to use Noctua fans. But what about the fan colors? Hummmm
Light video editing? You know, phone stuff. check
Picture editing? check
Playing music? check
[email protected]? check
Well, why fight it and here are the results.
Some of the parts I already had from my last build so all are not new. (780, ssd, keyboard, mouse, headphones, monitor)
Update: Took advantage of Holiday specials 2013 and upgraded the 780 to 780 Classified, installed sound card and upgraded the PSU to handle the higher amps/watts the video card needs when playing with custom BIO's.
Update 2: Took advantage of Holiday specials 2014 and upgraded the 840 to 2 Intel 730 SSDs in Raid 0 and changed the GPU to an ASUS 980 STRIX.
Update 3: Holidays 2015. Installed a Swiftec 220-x .....hummm wellll just because. Had to do something to ward off build fever! Upgraded to Win 10 and installed the SSDs into the appropriate holders that came with the case.
Update 4: Removed the Swiftech cooler. Something GREEN was growing in the cooler. Back to the Noctua.
Thoughts at the 2+ year mark. It's been a great PC and have not had any issues with the hardware and I'm glad that I choose quality hardware. Best of all it is still FAST!
Looks pretty much the same.
