Description

■ Project Moonlight ■ Price : $ 2900 ■ Location : Kingdom of Bahrain [Middle East]

Used for :

  1. Gaming
  2. Graphic Designing
  3. Video Editing
  4. Movies :D
  5. Anything and Everything

My first PC build.

This is what I could afford with my budget. The price i got for were a bit high as in Bahrain everything is not available so some had to be imported.

The led on fans are all white in color, but in the picture it looks like it has a blue tint.

The system is so smooth and cool.

GPU

• Temps barely goes up high. The fans start running only when above 60o C. The extra fan below it helps. • Adobe products support this graphic card as well.

Monitor:

• Got IPS panel display and I need that as I'm a graphic designer and I do video editing as well.

Fans :

• Took the white exhaust fan that came with case and placed it in the front with the other white fan. • Placed a AF140 quiet series white led fan for exhaust at the back. • Replaced the 2 fans that came with CPU cooler with SP120 white led fans. • Placed one of the CPU cooler fans that came with it at the bottom as intake. This will help GPU to be cooler.

The keyboard and speakers I had from before.

The Benchmarks are without overclocking.

Future Upgrades:

I would be getting K70 RGB Brown for keyboard and more HDD like maybe a 2x 4 TB as 1 TB is really not enough. I currently have most of my work files stored on a external HDD. In 2-3 months would be getting these stuff. And maybe some white led strips.

So what do u guys think :)

Super Clean! Super Cable Management! Super Cool! Gratz bro - love the case - wish it had a large square window though like H440 - i'll be basing my build on something similar

I really like this build. A part of me is surprised with that Bronze rated PSU. Again I like these spectacular choices of parts. The PSU, it's OK. I'm just really surprised that you didn't get a gold or platinum rated PSU. Any particular reason there? Reused? Was it just available at the time?

Anyways, this computer is awesome so please keep that note into heart. Thank you for sharing this build. +1

Thnx :) well it was really cost cutting on psu :3

I like that another fellow graphic designer has come up with a custom logo for their PC. I've got one designed and ready for mine as well when I release my build around the next month or so. I looked over all your components and everything seemed really well picked out besides one item... I believe you extremely overpaid for your Ram. I'm pretty positive you could've gotten same and or similar performing RAM for half the price you paid. Other than that I like this build a lot good work. +1

killerzcud submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

The price on PCPP is not same as i paid. Ram actually cost me about $360.

Then you did an even better job on picking out parts!

I'm astounded, its simplicity must be what's making that gorgeous! great build, Did you have trouble importing all these beauties?

killerzcud submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

thnx mate. Not really. Know someone who imports pc stuff :)

ITneto 1 point 43 months ago

I understood that you live in "Kingdom of Bahrain [Middle East]", is that right? So did you buy everything there, for said price? :O

killerzcud submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Yep and the stuff which was not available here, imported it . $2900 is including shipping charges.

Wow, dat logo. PSU isn't the greatest so I would try to replace that sometime in the future. +1

Hassman 1 point 35 months ago

is the ram good for gaming? its actually £37

killerzcud submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

U will need only 8 GB for gaming. I use this for design work also, thats why i got 32 gb.
