Karumu

First proper build: Marici (semi finished)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys i guess i should start by introducing myself. then the rig!

 

Im Callum or karumu i'm 17 i work as an IT apprentice so minimum wage here! 

 

Most of my money recently has been going towards my pc, as i have been dreaming of making a new rig for over a year now. Now i finally have an income i can make progress towards it.

 

My old rig was a custom build but it was aging rapidly, specs of it were Athlon II X3, Some asus am3 board, originally had a single 4gb module of ram, upgraded that a while back to 8gb corsair vengeance red, had a 1tb hdd, some crappy 750w psu (to be fair never had any trouble off of it.) and for a gpu i had the HD 5770 so not bad for a 3 year old machine, but definitely aged. 

 

So! time for my new rig! some of my parts are already bought and installed but i took pics during the process!

 

Spec currently sit at: 

CPU: amd FX-8350 

Motherboard: Asus Crosshair V Formula - Z

GPU: Radeon HD 7850 Powercolor 1gb edition (ugh not too bad and was quite cheap)

RAM: 8gb Corsair Vengeance red 1600mhz

PSU: Corsair CX430 

Storage: 120gb Samsung 840 EVO SSD boot drive + main games n stuff + Samsung Spinpoint F2 1TB storage drive

Case: Corsair 750D

Cooler: Corsair H100I

 

 

 

 

Thanks guys for checking out my build log if you want me to post a pic of my actual setup, i will do! thanks 

 

Callum / Karumu  :)  ;)

 

 

 

UPDATE:

 

New Spec list:

FX-8350 under H110 (gonna OC tomorrow)

Corsair Vengeance 8gb @ 1600

Asus Direct CUII TOP R9 270X (gonna buy a GTX 880 or 2 when they come out)

Crosshair V Formula-Z

XFX XTR 750W Gold PSU 

Samsung 840 EVO 120gb

Samsung Spinpoint 1tb

Update 2: i thought this was neccessary to put in since it really pissed me off

 

 

SO what happened was last friday i placed an order for my new case 750D + H100i. FIRSTLY the guy ordered the wrong bloody case, and when i went in on wednesday to pick up some thermal paste, he was like "i have your parts ready" and there it was, the C70............. so i asked him to get me the 750D in for today, not such a hard task since he gets next day delivery. 

 

IF HE HAD ORDERED IT THE DAY I TOLD HIM HE HAD THE WRONG THING IT WOULD BE HERE BY NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111!!11!1!! so this guy decided to order it at 8:00PM LAST NIGHT for the 750D so obviously it's not here yet........ I AM SO F*****G IMPATIENT 

 

 

but for the meantime at least i have the H100i to play with in my current case, will post pics tonight, who knows it may get delivered yet... i doubt it though

yay update time this one has some pictures!!!!!!1

 

so got my H100i, installed it in my old case for now, will be getting the 750D AT SOME POINT this guy is messing me around so i shall not be buying off him again, simple ordering of parts is too difficult for him i assume. 

 

enough frustration here is some really bad pictures also lots of them so i shall put them in a spoiler

woooop

Ignore those temps dude. Download HWMON and keep an eye on the CPU and socket temps.

 

Glad your cooler finally turned up. Seems we share the same shitty luck lol.

 

Looking forward to seeing updates :)
