Description

I use this system for streaming a live radio show twice a week called Radio Memories at http://vaughnlive.tv/radiomemories

I needed to build a fast enough system to run all of my broadcasting software without any glitches or lags.

I hand picked these parts after doing a lot of research. So far, this new computer is working very well. The only bottleneck is my ISP. I'm stuck with AT&T Uverse at the moment. The speeds are rather low. I'm only getting 11.3 down and 0.95 up. That's barely enough to stream at the current bitrates I'm using.

I plan to upgrade my graphics card to a AMD HD 7850 and use the HD 7750 on my other PC.

By the time you have enough money to upgrade to the 7850 i bet the new amd gpus will be out!

Nice :) How do you like the case?

The Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 is a fantastic case. It was so easy to build, has excellent cable management, and runs very cool and quiet.

I got it for a great price, $64.99 with free shipping. I highly recommend it. Plenty of room in there for upgrades later on.

How loud is that stock CPU fan? And is it working?

The stock CPU fan is actually the loudest fan in my system. I did manage to turn the speed down a bit in the BIOS and it seems a little quieter, but the speed and noise fluctuates as the CPU load varies.

I hope to get an aftermarket cooler, such as a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

Any plans on overclocking? The UD3 you got there is great for it.

Later on when I get an aftermarket cooler, I'll try some modest overclocking.

Great build man. You knew exactly what you needed and picked great parts for the purpose. Didn't skimp anywhere but also didn't over spend. Great computer for the price.

Nice cable management!
