The current set up is a modified version of my "Exodus" system that I've built on over the years since its construction in December 2015/January 2016. It remains the core components of a i5 4460 and Z97 chipset, in addition to a 1TB WD drive, but now has a Crucial 500GB SSD, in addition to a Gigabyte GTX 1050 2GB. Also, perhaps most signfiicantly, it has a new case - the Corsair Spec 06 (non RGB) in red. It's named "Red October" after Tom Clancy's The Hunt For Red October - a silent submarine. Likewise, this PC is practically silent thanks to the 120mm BeQuiet fan in the back (not on the parts list) and the much better quality case. Cable managment was incredibly easy, I actually bought 100 cable ties thinking it would be a mare, but none of them were needed.
I was actually worried that when I upgraded it, it wouldn't even work properly, because my younger brother who I had recruited to help out with some of the parts where I needed two hands, kept manhandling the board and hadn't grounded himself. To add further insult to injury, whilst attempting to cable manage the USB 3 cable, I accidentally bent back the USB 3 pins - but fortunately my brother was able to bend them back into place. First time this has ever happened, and definitely a hair raising moment.
I also doubled my RAM, from 8GB of HyperX (1 module) to 2x8GB of Corsair Vengeance, albeit at the same speed. The speakers have been replaced with Logitech Z337 which come with a subwoofer, they sound amazing. Since the inital build, I've also wall mounted my monitor and placed red LED strips on my desk. I'm considering getting some to put in the PC.
The sticker on the front was custom made on eBay for about 99p. The font is Eurostile bold, in case anyone is interested.
Overall, a fantastic upgrade at the PC's hallfway point which should see it through another four years, hopefully more. I was reluctant upgrading the RAM on a DD3 platform, but I couldn't use my current RAM as it was blue and so wouldn't match the system, and besides, this was the best opportunnity to get some actually affordable RAM.
