Description

Originally a prebuilt for me but I became really interested in computers, and recently i've been upgrading parts. Prices are in AUD.

CPU: D0 revision, OC's to 3.8 no worries. Keeps up with modern i5's.

MoBo: Punted the s**t out of this, still works.

CPU Cooler: Cools 4ghz @ 73°C on IntelBurnTest.

RAM: Solid stuff.

Storage: Raid0, speeds reach ~700MB sequential, storage was not important but speed was.

Graphics: Actually a Gigabyte HD7990. Got it on a special price, and about $50 more than my previous 680, so lots of value here.

Case: Bigger is better :)

PSU: Better than you'd expect, good reviews and solid performance.

Monitor: Korean 1440P monitor OC'd to 96hz keeping it at a 1:3 ratio for the 24hz of videos and movies.

Keyboard: Ugly but does what it needs to do and CherryMX Brown have a solid fluent feel over membrane switches.

Headphones: Very tight around my head and are uncomfortable, good sound and noise cancelling mic which is good.

Mouse: Fits my hand, good for palm grip and pretty solid all around.

+1 for 1366 build :D not many people do those

One thing: the Samsung 840 Series SSDs are ~$10 cheaper with 70 GB more space, and have quite a reliable reputation, so I'd probably have gone with those, but hey, your build.

How is that G35?

I personnaly own a G35, it's really cool to have those G keys there. The braiding cord, I didn't like in the beginning but after time, it became very good. When you first take it out the box, the braiding is all tidy an all so when you unfold it, it keeps the folding marks. So no biggie on that. It has 3 headband pads but the G35 is quite a heavy beast. All that sweet virtual 7.1, incredible mic an all, I sometimes have to change the settings of the speaker lenght and one of those pads. So basically, IMO, it's a good product and you'll like the software that comes with it but the comfort is maybe not it's best advantage. I was luring to exchange it for a Corsair idk the name again but it was wireless.

Where did you get the H320? Its page here on PCPP says "Price data on this part is not currently available".

Sorry for the late response, I believe it is not available in america because of some lawsuit asetek pinned on swiftech, I live in australia and can be purchased here, ncix.ca also have the unit, and you can have it internationally shipped to you. :)

Great build. This is coming from someone who usually doesn't like intel builds. The only thing I have a question about is why the 3 sticks of ram and not 2 or 4 sticks so you can take advantage of dual channel?

lga1366 is tri channel
