  1. I finally assembled my retro HEDT system !





    What I bought used :

    CPU: Intel Core i7-5820K from @Damascus, better price than what I can see in France.

    Motherboard: EVGA Micro 2 Micro from Damascus but previously owned by @Zando Bob, good price and not even available in France.
    Video Card: Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon R9 290 4 GB from ebay for actually a very good price.

    Case: modded Antec Three Hundred from my build from 2010, it needed to be modded to allow the video card to fit in the case.

    What I bought new :

    CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S because discount and it's Noctua.

    Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2 x 8GB 3200MHz CL16 meh memory and not even quad channel yet.
    Storage: Crucial MX500 500 GB 2.5" why pay the double for Samsung when this one is as good ? :P

    Power Supply: be quiet! Straight Power 11 650W not supposed to explode ™️


    What I plan to bought later :

    Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2 x 8GB 3200MHz CL16 for that fancy quad channel memory.

    3 Noctua NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM fans because there are actually no fans in the case.


    A build log will maybe come in the next year (if Earth survives 2020).

      Mine looked way worse anyway.

      It doesn't look half bad. I used metal scissors to cut fan holes and remove half of the HDD bays for airflow back in the day. I also found a somewhat good deal on 6800K+ X99 Sabertooth, kind of thinking about getting it instead of Ryzen build.

      I tried with metal scissors and I ended up using a Dremel :P The cuts are well done but kind of sharps so for the cables I placed duct tape above to be sure it doesn't cut them on the long run. It's also a build for fun since I already have a main one far better, I'll keep it or sell it, I don't know yet :D
