Description

Built this PC to replace my 6+ year-old 'gaming' laptop. I shoot a lot of footage on a Drift HD camera, which my old laptop struggled to even play back! It's also been a long time since I played any games, and I quite frankly miss it!

I had a budget of around ~£700, so was looking for pre-builds until someone on a forum said it would be cheaper to build my own, so I did, and saved a bunch of cash in the process!

I was surprised at how easy the process was, simply by following the manuals for the various components. The cable routing on this case seems to work well, as did the tool-less drive installation.

There weren't enough places to plug in all the fans, so I'm not sure they're all where they should go! The three supplied case fans are a big noisy for the bedroom where it's currently being used, but it'll be moved soon. The only planned upgrade is for the CPU cooler - the stock one is very loud under load!

Why not go for a modular power supply? corsair has the rm 650 for the same price.

Agreed, I got the Tesla at a great price for a gold-rated 650. There's only one cable I'm not using, and that's easily hidden in the back of this case. Having all the cables braided coming out of the PSU actually looks very neat!

Maybe so, but the Tesla is probably one of the best parts of my system in terms of noise and heat. It's a good looker too!
