Right lets share the last 2 weeks upgrades that have been going on pc-wise then.
First, my brother wanted to do a upgrade on his pc to make music at higher quality settings.
His current i3 rig wasn't able to pull it off running on old HDD's and 2x2gigs of ram.
So the list:
CPU: socket 2011, i7-4820K, Z79
MOBO: socket 2011, MSI Z79 bla bla bla
PSU: Corsair modular 430 watts
SSD: Intel 180gb, 550kb/s read/write
RAM: 2x 8 gb Corsair Vengeance@ 1600Mhz
On the left his "old" socket 1155 MOBO and the new 2011 MSI one on the right.
The new Intel SSD in a converter bracket that came with his case.
Thats what you get when you have 2 weeks summer holiday and it rains for 90% of the time :/
So, at this point in his upgrade there was a spare socket 1155 CPU and MOBO left.
So i asked him if we could swap it with MissMorph's hardware to upgrade her pc, and use her old parts for a steambox.
So, here we go again:
On the right, her current core 2 duo MOBO, on the left my brothers "old" i3 system.
Also the GTX 669 TI is ready to be used again in the upgraded rig.
I bought some white Kingston hyper x ram to match the white case.
This is what the cooler looks like now with 2 COrsair AF120's purple on it in pushpull.
Bit overkill since with one fan while gaming temps didnt go above 40 degrees but it looks cool :P
So there ya go, 7 purple fans in total lol and still pretty silent in idle mode.
On top of all of this i added a cool bit to our pc compiling table / testcorner area.
I need to hide some of the wires still tho and hook up the old pentium 4 testcase for when people bring over their virus invested harddrives lol.
