Wireless Network Adapter
Note1: Forgive my broken english
Note2: This is not a place to start Intel vs AMD war, I am a man who used both since Intel 80486 and I am still having that PC till this very moment.
Its been long time since I built a PC for myself. The last one I made was in 1999-2000 and I still remember it was
266MHz AMD K6-2 3DNow / 64MB SDRAM / 1.2GB Quantom Bigfoot HDD / 16MB Creative 3D Blaster Banshee / Creative Sound Blaster Live / 3Com US Robotics 56K Modem / 17" ViewSonic CRT Monitor/Windows 98SE/Slackware 7.1.
Because I used to move a lot I had to use laptops for 15 years and all the laptops were Intel/Nvidia all the way (I am writing this using my Lenovo Y410p) but this year I decided to build a PC and it will be AMD/ATI all the way so I came up with this built.
The Main use will be Virtualization/Linux/Service Provider for SOHO/Gaming/Streaming/Media Center.
I bought all the parts from amazon since its too darn hard finding these parts in the local market even if I am lucky and I can get them from a local store ill have to pay 300% extra for them, like the case for example, I wanted to go with Define S and the distributor of fractal is selling it for 250 USD which is idiotic so I tried buying it from amazon but they don't ship it internationally so i had to go for F51 (I still hate the idea of buying a fake copy of R5 but what can I do ?)
I built a PC last week for my cousin which is:
i5-6600k/Z170 VIII Hero/Strix970/ASUS DVD-RW/ASUS Wireless PCI-E/ASUS Swift ROG/Corsair SSD/Corsair h100i GTX/Corsair 2400DDR4/Corsair RM750/Corsair Air540/Corsair Mouse/Corsair Keyboard//Corsair Headset/Corsair Extended Mouse Pad/Corsair Fans (YES HE IS CORSAIR/ASUS FANBOY).
I would be so happy if i can get my PC to reach 75% of his PC's performance since this one costs 50% less than his (My PC cost 1670 USD for EVERYTHING from the mouse to the processor but his PC cost 1589 USD FOR THE PC ONLY, I cant afford that, I have a family to feed LOL)
so 75% is going to be fair if its not a win for me xD.
Best processor you can get for its price
seems so quite
UPDATE1: Not so quite anymore,,,,,, in less than a month!!!!!
SUPER... buy it,, just buy it.
UPDATE1: the mobo throttle the CPU above 4.6 GHz and without a fan on the NB+VRM heatsink u will never pass over 4.6 GHz and u will keep bouncing between 7 x multiplier and Ur OC x multiplier,, i don't recommend this mobo for extreme OC unless u know how to cool it.
What else u need?
So fast, Even faster than my HyperX 3K.
a beast in black,, but make sure u can feed it well, it uses 8+8 power connectors, the only sad point is there is no backplate on it(the new ver has but its 30 USD more).
really nice case for those who want to buy fractal define r5/define s but cant get them, almost perfect copy but a lil bigger , (I still wish if i can get define s over this one).
UPDATE1: i dont regret having this case anymore but i dont like its fans.
one of the best PSU I have ever dealt with.
I have Windows 8.1 Pro but buying 10 Pro for that price was a win/win deal for me.
Nothing impressive, doing its job (I prefer wired connection, I just got it in case if I need to go wireless sometimes).
Beast, I LOVE it (the only problem is Diablo III forcing me to play windowed but i can live with that since i dont play that game a lot anymore)
Finally I am able to work on 2-3 Virtual Machines at the same time with acceptable resolutions. Its sad i cant give this monitor more stars.
UPDATE1: now i want to get its big sister (34um67-p) this monitor is amazing once u get it u cant go back to normal monitors anymore(not sure about heavy gamers).
Its a modern version of IBM Model M or MSX AX150, its sound reminds me by good old days.
UPDATE1: click click click click ,, amazing but my wife hates it specially when I work at night so be careful xD.
Smooth and it fits my big hand nicely (Fingertip Grip User).
I had Razer Chimaera 5.1/Razer Tiamat 7.1/Corsair Vengeance 1500/Steelseries Elite but I have never been able to use them for hours comfortably except this one and the Corsair (Corsair 50mm Driver is amazing), I wish they make 50mm driver for this model.
