I enjoyed this build because of the Fractal Design case. I will never build another computer with out using an SSD for the OS and a standard 3.5" HD for storage. Its definitely the way to go.
Nice! A little overkill on the CPU cooler but nonetheless a nice system.
That server rack is cool. I didn't know that case was designed for those server racks.
Ha ha its not. it just happen to fit perfectly. I think they are more of an entertainment design.
Really? that's funny. :D
Well, the 750W version of the Corsair CX is the only PSU in the CX lineup that is actually a quality PSU.
Great build! Question: Why did you go with a core i5 as opposed to an xeon?
That is what I was thinking. Great question.
xeons are expensive lol
There are a few that are under the $300 price such as the Intel Xeon 1220 :p
yeah but thats sandy bridge
No particular reason. I have not developed partiality to any processor just yet. Still new to building PCs myself.
Love the case, I used the 605 in my build as well. while scrolling through the pictures I was amazed the cooler fit. very cool server rack set up
Yeah everything fit very well. I did a build a few months prior to that (my first ever build) with the Node 304 and everything was supper tight. Cable management was a bear.
