This is an update to a build I did last spring. I upgraded the CPU, GPU, PSU and added a RAID.
The PC is used for programming, gaming and some video editing.
My original CPU was not a K series and consequently did not match the Z motherboard. I thought I’d go with the 3570k and try my hand at overclocking. Overclocking is something new for me, so that will be my next research project.
Adding the RAID was a bit of a challenge. I thought that since my OS was on a separate drive, I could just configure the RAID by itself. However, Windows would not recognize the RAID. After some more research I ended up reinstalling my OS. That was a bit of a setback but everything is up and running now and the RAID works well.
With the parts I swapped out, I am thinking of putting together an HTPC.
I'd love to hear your feedback. Thanks for checking in.
