Description

GPU is at stock boost speeds (1430Mhz), with an ASIC rating of 77.2%. CPU undervolted (1.10v) at stock speeds with Intel boost to 4.2Ghz.

Built originally in late 2014 to Early 2015 as a budget build with an MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ Motherboard, an AMD FX6300, a Phanteks Black Tower Cooler, 16GB of DDR3 GSkill 1600Mhz RAM and an MSI R9 270x 4G all powered with a 630w 80+ Bronze Rosewill Green PSU and housed within a Corsair Spec-01 Midtower case. I have upgraded to better parts/a much more powerful platform in mid-2016 since then.

I purchased the CPU, Motherboard + Free Windows 8.1 Pro License/Disc and RAM for under $500 which was my budget for the upgrade at the time. The GTX 980 FTW was purchased in early 2015 New on Craigslist for $250 as the seller wanted to build a new PC but the project got cancelled. I purchased the Swiftech H220-X, EVGA 650 P2, EVGA Red and Black Cables and the Fittings/Tubing on Ebay altogether for around $200. Overall I estimate the actual price of the PC (without peripheral devices) to be under $1100.

(The DG 76 Case was won during the EVGA | Nvidia Ansel-fie Contest) I removed the white lines and decals off of the case and thumbscrews for the more sleek and uniform look of the case.

I am using XSPC black FLX tubing and XSPC Fittings to replace the stock swivel fittings on the CPU/PUMP/RAD Cooler. I purchased and use the EVGA Powerlink, alongside the custom EVGA Red and Black Individually-Sleeved Cables.

To my surprise, I haven't used an SSD in the build since the day I first started building. I'm still waiting for prices to drop on the 1TB SSDs that can match the read and write endurance of my old HDD.

I do light editing with Adobe CS6 Photoshop 64bit and Video Editing on BlackMagic Design DaVinci Resolve Studio 15. On my free time I play videogames on the same Ultrawide Monitor.

(Note: The Figure in the picture is a McFarlane Series 1 Master Chief, with the rifle being repainted and affixed with a metal barrel and flashlight. There's a much recent/new version of the AIO used called the "Swiftech Drive X3" that uses Mayhems coolant, tubing and a redesigned Pump.)

Nice build. Never seen an AIO like that before.

the master chief figure is a nice touch to a really clean build

You're extremely lucky to be able to buy a Swiftech AIO. Those were handed a cease and desist in the US.

Also, is the build named after the Japanese space probe?

Ah, I named the PC after the Hayabusa Armor from the Halo 3 nod to Ryū Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden. The Hayabusa Space Station you mentioned would be a really cool theme to build around!

It's a spacecraft that gathered rocks from an asteroid. It's first mission succeeded, it's 2nd mission is currently ongoing.
