Feuerwasser (ger.: Firewater)
(Semi-)Budget build for dj and programmer Haki. Using mostly used parts. Dedicated to programming and gaming at 1080p.
An Intel CPU and a reasonabely future-proof socket / chipset were the only things specifically requested, so i got CPU and mainboard first.
Got a good deal on the MSI Z97M-G43 and from there on planned on a mATX build with a red & blue colorway.
Got an offer i couldn't refuse on the HIS R9 390, painted it red and bought a new pair of Kingston Savage to be the counterpart to the blue MoBo.
With what the german market has to offer, Thermaltake Versa H15 and Thermalright Macho 90 are no-brainers, when building a non-oc'ed mATX system.
A modular PSU would have been optimal for use in a case this small, but since i made another godfather-like 2nd hand purchase with the full-wired XFX i had to be creative. I stored all unused (and even some used) power cables in the hardrivebay on top of the HDD and pulled the sleeved PCIe connectors through between them.
With the LED fans installed facing each other, it creates a kind of color-sectioned look with which i'm deeply contented (THX to buzzard437 & VVaId0 for the inspiration!).
RAM upgraded to 4 x 4GB.
