Custom PC Builds Thread

  1. If you've got a custom PC, post your specs here, I want to see. I'll also offer help in this thread if needed.
    Here's my rig,

    Case: Zalman Z11 Plus

    Show Spoiler

    Processor: AMD FX-8350 8 core CPU, overclocked to 4.9GHz
    Processor Cooling: Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme Liquid Cooling
    Graphics Card: XFX Radeon HD 7870
    Motherboard: Asus SABRETOOTH 990FX
    RAM: 16gb Kingston Hyper-X Genesis 1600MHz
    Hard Disk 1: Kingston V300 120GB SSD
    Hard Disk 2: 500GB WD Velociraptor
    PSU: Corsair AX860 Fully Modular 860w PSU
    Additional: 3x Noctua NF-F12 case fans, 1 intake and 2 exhausting.
    Peripherals: Perixx MX-1000 mouse & Perixx PX-2000 keyboard.

    This is my gaming machine, and what I do all my recording and other work on. Serving me well so far.
    Your turn.
    Xanth what was your question?
  2. God damn I'm ridiculously jealous of your PC. That looks so gorgeous.
  3. Thanks, I would take my own pictures but I don't have a camera.
  4. Lol, I don't even know how to find the stats of my PC.

  5. Did you buy it from a retailer or is it a custom build?
  6. It was from novatech but I got like the barebones thing. So it's half custom if that makes sense?
  7. Yep.
    You wanted a new gpu right?
  8. And yeah, this one can barely run Tomb Raider. Texture glitches and crashing everywhere
  9. Damn, you need an upgrade lol.

  10. 5700 series gpu is very old now. Upgrade that. I'd upgrade most of this system actually.
  11. Yeah it's getting a bit old. Nothing has been touched on this PC in like 2 or 3 years now.
  12. Everything?
  13. Do you want to get new parts? If so, do you have a budget?

    Pretty much.
  14. I have no money currently, but I will have some time in the near future and it'd be nice to have something to spend it on.
  15. Alright, I can suggest a few things when you're ready, if you want me to.

    That's my case, its the NZXT Phantom 410.

    1200 Watt PSU (To much power I know)
    16GB Corsair Vengence Ram
    AsRock Z77 Pro-4 M Motherboard
    Intel i5 3570k CPU
    LG Bluray DVD Player/Burner
    2GB nvidia 660 GTW Graphics Card

    I'm pree sure that's everything :3 In total I spent about $900 and got an amazing gaming pc.
  17. Hmm, how much was that build Solidus? Extremely jelly of your CPU, they're 4.0Ghz default right? 4.9Ghz :damn: :mindblown:
  18. It was £475 at first, but then I added more parts. I'll calculate it later.
    Yea, the CPU turbos to 4.3GHz at stock. I'm gonna overclock again this weekend, hopefully to 5.2GHz. Will need to get more fans for that.

  19. Nice build. That is waaaaaay too much power though, you could crossfire 2 GTX Titans under 100% load and still have power to spare.
    What cooling you got going on?

    Forgot about this, the build is worth about £1100 after the additional ~£600 I spent on it.
