Worked for the majority of my summer with dreams of finally assembling a full PC - from scratch, no more tacky upgrades of older machines. Ended up slightly under expected target due to miscalculations with tax. Recently managed to get missing part. Sharing finished build.
To create a PC that is not only small and silent, but fast and strong. To earn each component myself (no cash funding from parents etc) To run all upcoming games on at least high for the next 2-3 years. To use components that are of high quality but fair price
How I have rated my components: 3 stars = It works almost as expected but certain areas (specifically noise) let it down. 4 stars = Works as expected, get what you pay for. 5 stars = Works better than expected, fantastic value for money.
Case only has 2 drive bay's. DVDRW leaves indent in otherwise seamless surface on front panel. Monitor (unlisted here) came without stand - had to order in from america with with a shipping cost 4 times more expensive than the item itself. *should really tuck in the GPU cables to complete the cable management but haven't done so yet.
Both the CPU and GPU have been overclocked to the listed speeds, I will be attempting a minor OC on the ram shortly, I am yet to run any stress tests past 8 hours but i believe it to be stable at current speeds.
