Description

I saved money for a very long time in hope to have a high end gaming rig like this and this dream has been fulfilled. I am so grateful. During the three years period of me saving up money, I had been doing a lot of research in regard to the system compatibility and how to build the rig. Luckily, I managed to do it without any big hassle. Although, my system is working fine, there's a problem with my monitor. It needs to be unplugged and re-plugged again in order for it to show boot-up menu or the OS. I think it has something to do with the Power Supply in my monitor. For now, unplugging and re-plugging work for me. I bought this monitor in Thailand and it's much hassle to bring it back and ask for a new one. Also, the warranty only works if the monitor is being used in Thailand. Now that I brought it here to Cambodia, I think the warranty might have been void. It's unfortunate, but it'll have to do for now. One thing you might have noticed. The price of my build is much higher than normal. That's because I am in Cambodia, a third world country where technology is far limited. I had to go to Thailand to buy most of my items. Also, I know that the green laced case doesn't go well with the motherboard and graphic cards, but it is the only available and cheap case I can find in Cambodia. So don't be mean about it. I wish I could repaint it but I am not a very handy guy and I am too afraid that I might damage my system in doing so. Finally, leave me a comment or message if you have anything to say. Peace!

That's a killer machine! Show us some benchmarks.

Thanks. I don't know how to benchmark properly, but I did it with Cinebench and Heaven Unigine. The room average temp is 30-31c (tropical country), the GPU is 80c underload and never goes over 85c (which is a relief i think), and the CPU is 70c underload and never goes over 75c. For the rest of the benchmark, I upload a few new photos showing the results. :)

Well, I don't have decent camera, but I already posted it. Hope you like it. Though I hate the green. I wish I could repaint it but I am afraid I will damage something. Maybe I'll buy a new case in the distant future?

It looks clean inside! I wouldn't bother buying another one as the side window only shows the components.

True. maybe I only need to paint the outside of the case.

Awesome computer. You should be able to paint the case with some help on some forums and videos

I hate the green so much but I am afraid I will damage something in the process of repainting it. :(

Just use some plastic dip and use proper painting procedures, you will be fine

Just a tip but the HDD cages are removable. I removed them in my build for more airflow and so it looks slightly less green.

Sweet build, pal! Next purchase...a bigger desk? :)

Also, what's your experience with that Toshiba's hard drive? I've heard bad things about it.

We need temperatures and benchmarks!

Hello, I have a Toshiba X300 4TB hard drive as of current, and I would say it is an incredible hard drive, and I could confirm that it is one of the fastest 3.5in hard drives out there. I went with the 4TB version because I have read that 4TB versions are much more stable and secure because they have the optimal amount of magnetic platters, as well as the lowest price per Terabyte/Gigabyte. The Toshiba X300 only has 4-6TB capacities.

Toshiba is one of the few companies that actually continue to improve their hard drive's hardware, compared to WD, Seagate, and other hard drive manufacturers that will in most cases change the label and firmware.

This hard drive has 128mb buffer cache, which helps to speed up transfers as well as decrease access times. I get about 205Mbps read/write (you read it correctly) on the x300 4TB, with 4-8ms (milliseconds) access times. Not only that, but when I bought this hard drive at $120 ($30 a terabyte, or $.03 a gigabye), I was extremely pleased with what the performance and reliability the hard drive had to offer at such a low price.

Do be aware that if you cannot find the hard drive at $120, it will reach that price if you wait. After I set up the hard drive in Windows, I had 3725Gb usable (Remember not all of the advertised space in any hard drive is always usable), which is much more than the 3600Gb usable I got with other 4TB hard drives.

Overall this hard drive was an incredible purchase (with very noticeable performance increase from a WD Blue or Black), and it just shows me that I shouldn't be paying $40-$70 dollars a terabyte for inferior/relabeled hard drives that WD, Seagate, and Hitachi make. This hard drive also comes with a 2 year limited warranty, so that if in any case your hard drive fails for a reason not of your own, Toshiba will replace the hard drive for free and even put your old data on the new one they send.

You just convinced me to buy one. Excellent answer, thank you.

No problem, I hope that you will find the hard drive satisfactory! Just you may have to wait for the X300 4TB to fall to $120, which it seems to do every month or so. Be sure to write back and tell and how it goes when you have the chance. By the way the access time is only able to get to 4-8ms when the hard drive is fully defragmented, in most cases you will have a 10-12ms access time which is hardly distinguishable from the fastest access times.

Nothing bad happens with my Toshiba hard drive yet, but it's the only available one here and cheapest. lol I installed a game on it and the load time is decent as well.
