Description

  • This is NOT a new system, Its my personal PC that I initially built in Early 2013 and have been adding/swapping parts since then. The price(s) Listed for the hardware are the prices @ Time of purchase; NOT currently-

I originally had an NZXT Source 210(Window) w/ a Corsair H60 + Raidmax 530W PSU, Then I switched out the H60 for a Zalman CNPS9900MAX (Blue LED) and kept the H60 For later use If needed; I now run a Logisys IC231 PWM After also selling the CNPS9900MAX, realising Temps make ZERO difference in performance on a(n) locked Processor, as long as it stays a good bit below its TjMax; I needed some money for a new PSU and case so I sold it and the Raidmax to get whats currently in my rig now the Rosewill CAPSTONE 550W + Coolermaster HAF 912;

  • Small along the way additions like the Rosewill Wired Dual NIC(Free from a PC Sales Repair shop i volunteer at, 2 Rosewill RFA-120 120mm Fans, and recently(Not listed) I replaced my Gigabyte Force K3 Membrane Keyboard(The print on the keys was literally wearing off, I had one or two keys with actual holes in the middle; Of course it was the S & D key, WASD; Run forward!) w/ The Coolermaster "CM Storm" Devastator Keyboard/Mouse Combo [Red LED's]

Anything else in the pictures is stuff I already own; IE the LG Monitor up top, and my Dad's good old 1972 Harmon/Kardon Receiver w/ What the company's now called JBL's x2 125W Bookshelf speakers + x2 Sony 200W Floorstanding speakers.

  • The Pump on the H60 was having issues, And my Temps where getting way to high considering I was using a Closed-loop water cooling unit on a Core i3-4330 w/ a TDP of 54W. So Im running it with a crappy intel stock cooler and AS9 Thermal compound.

  • Just to re-iterate this isn't a new build/build log, I just posted my current pc here to just show others, and so I can give people I know the URL to look at it- I have another build I did for a friend; Proper build log w/ New Parts here:

*UPDATE: I've added some new parts that aren't in the pictures:

  • x1 Samsung 850 EVO 120GB
  • x1 EVGA GTX 960 SSC 2GB
  • x1 Logisys IC231PWM 100mm CPU Cooler(Stock replacement)

Thanks :)

How could you have paid that much for that motherboard?! I saw it for about 100$ almost everywhere! And why choose an ATX case for a microatx? Why paying for watercool when no OC? Why the dual interface card? Why so much god damn fans?...

Theres something wonky with this build. I spent 1100-1200 dollras and got a 960+i5-4430 with dual monitors. No ssd though.

ASUS VE278Q 27" 1920x1080p Monitor + I have 2 Additional monitors I already own; The one pictured above on top of the rack w/ my modem/router and receiver is an older LG 1600x900 60Hz Monitor; I just use it for extendeding my desktop to display Task manager(Performance view), Monitoring, Netflix, Stuff like that.

I originally had it in the NZXT Vulcan case (mATX Mini tower), and I carried it over to the HAF 912 when I decided I wanted room to move up to an ATX board when I got some money later on. Still have it in there :(

Newegg.com; Its Discontinued for some reason, but they have the same exact board (i guess with some kind of change;its still H87/Haswell). I dont think you can even find it by searching anymore

No, It was from Newegg.com(I know it was the real site too, im not stupid; It had the https prefix + the lock symbol, which can be faked, but I dont know how this would happen when I type the direct URL into Chrome). How was I ripped off? It costed me $89.99; Heres the link to the original board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130698

And the Corsair H60 I had gotten for free from the Computer-repair/sales shop I volunteer for, I get money under the table(Tax free :D) and sometimes I can just get parts off the shelves if they havn't been able to sell them;

It took me a very long time to start getting anything out of the shop :P I volunteered there for 2 years before I got a $20 bill and a little sony subwoofer I needed(Wanted) for my receiver/speaker setup. They're hard to find, Almost impossible, ones that'll let you come in and out on your own time, and Let you take something out of the warehouse that hasn't been selling online or is overstocked (I got like 5 Silverstone 120mm Magnetic fan filters once).

Not the best parts chosen :(

I'm pretty curious on the rationale behind these parts.

  • 60 months ago

there are so many WHY parts here. For example, the 500gb HDD that costs more than a 1TB similar HDD or the 60$ CPU cooler for a locked CPU

Guys, Just to let you know about the parts; This PC isn't NEW, Its a continuation of one of my personal rigs that Ive been adding small things here and there since the build date in 2013; The Prices back then werent what they are today, so i payed less for some parts than others, and more for some than others; IE: That 500GB WD HDD actually was priced to match when I bought it, being about (69.99Give or take it was a while ago, it was somewhere between 60-70 USD) and the 1TB was about $15 more (again give or take); I was on a strict budget, it was built w/ Entry level Triple A(BF4,COD Franchise,FableIIINot triple a i know, ETC) gaming and general use in mind so the graphics card and CPU where where I wanted to focus my money into. The prices listed currently aren't even completely accurate to Newegg.com's, which is where I buy all my hardware thats not modding supplies (Performance-pcs.com & Modbunker/Lutr0-Customs)

This is why descriptions are good. Had you mentioned this, even in a shorter form, you wouldn't have had such backfire from people about your parts.

I wasn't worried about people getting upset/backfiring over the parts, I honestly just had this in my saved parts list, because its my current build; It wasn't really a log. Also, the date Dec. 13, 2013 Below the Total Price should have given the idea that It wasn't new, and assuming that, the prices and parts arent going to be relevant to todays Hardware. I dont think people should have to assume and read between the lines, but This wasn't a build log, like I said. Its been explained, And the description does say "TBD" or in other words: "I havn't figured out exactly what I want to say in here, so Ill update this later"

Sorry about all the hate you're getting. As many stated, you should really go over the build in the description. Usually when people update a build or use parts previously owned, they mark them as $0.00 and already purchased, only putting prices of parts recently purchased, which would likely clear up a lot of the confusion. Because at first glance it looks like you just dropped $1200 on a computer that should cost you like $700. Anyways, looks good :)

This is my second time using PCPartPicker to post a build; I'm not completely familiar with how to properly edit things and Navigate the Saved Parts List/Inventory; I have another (proper) new build i did for a friend here(Its got a description and its new): https://pcpartpicker.com/b/7TTH99

Don't be sorry, Its my fault for not doing the description ahead of time; Most of its not hate, I consider alot of it constructive criticism or just questioning why I picked certain parts that I did, because I didn't state any of this stuff in the Description; Im working on the description, Im updating it tonight-
