Description

This is a build over several years. The original motherboard was an Asus M4A79XTD-EVO. I've had an HD 4850, 4870, 5850 and now my GTX 760. I bought the Asus motherboard, the Phenom II 965 and the first 4GB of RAM as a combo on black friday in 2009. The other 4GB came from a friend upgrading a couple months ago. The hard drives used to be in a NAS that finally died on me. The PSU I have was some sort of a newegg.com exclusive or something because it doesn't really exist online as far as I can tell.

As for challenges, this case was really good for it's time, but not the easiest to fit everything that I have. Most notably I have to completely pull the motherboard to apply a back plate for the CPU cooler. If I want to upgrade to a closed loop liquid cpu cooler at any point, I'd pretty much have to completely disassemble the entire computer. It offers decent cable management, but new cases I have used are a lot easier in that regard.

Except he made a typo... That 'y' should be an 'i'...

(Can't believe I even remember that still xD)

I just looked it up, and you are correct. Tis what I named my computer when I built it because I couldn't think of anything, and was like 'It doesn't even matter' Ah-HA!. So, I guess my misspelling the name is my own variation for my computer's name. Yeah, I'll go with that.

If I'm not mistaken Tagan doesn't produce power supplies anymore and were exclusively sold at newegg. Also I believe that whether they admit it or not the rosewill power supplies are nearly Identical in design to Tagan.

anyways here's a link to one like yours, I'm not sure what wattage yours was though. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817814013

Yup, I have a Tagan BZ series 700W. Either next build, or at the next point I can afford to I'm going with a corsair or seasonic PSU. I've built computers for other people with both of those with great results

Personally I like corsair but I've heard they use cheap caps but idk.

although XFX on the other hand is made by seasonic and they make great PSUs, I own one myself actually.

Also, your PSU is upside-down.

Yes, that is how the screw holes line up. Also, there is no vent on the bottom, nor any clearance for airflow if there were.

You have the wrong case listed. It doesn't match your pictures.

My case isn't on the list, so I picked the closest one they had. Mine is the Antec 900 V2. I haven't seen it for sale for some time now.
