This PC was built for my parents. The prices are not exactly accurate, because many of the parts were from older computers such as the Caviar Blue. Also many of these parts were bought as refurbished, so it is significantly cheaper. Not to mention a lot of these parts were bought in Asia, so many parts have 10% lower price, but many also have 50% increase in price.
Their graphics card is not a HIS Radeon R7 260x 1GB, to be exact the graphics card is actually a MSI Radeon Gaming Series R7 260x 1GB Twin Forza. The specs and prices are exactly the same, which is the reason why I choose this. Since the computer is currently in Asia I can't benchmark it, but the computer is fully loaded with 9 fans, 2 being used for push and pull for the H60 (I used the stock 120mm NZXT performance fans for the push and pull), the computer can run pretty cool. The case's build in fan controls allows the computer to run silently when not in full load, and NZXT fans are relatively quiet even on 100% (because I have the 120mm NZXT stock fans constantly on 100% and I barely hear them at all).
Since the computer is not near me (its across the Pacific from me), I can't benchmark it for you guys. Also yes I know H60s have thermal compound already on it, but since I've already bought the MX4 before we decided we were going to go water cooling, I ended up just stripping the stock H60 cooling compound and replaced it with the MX4.
An Overview of the Amount of Money saved/paid Extra (keep in mind, in China a lot of computer parts have Foreign Import Tax/Premium pricing. This is all compared with current price of these components on Newegg. All components that is unobtainable in US, or doesn't have a US equivalent will not be compared, also stuff that I got for free, such as Windows 7 from school , and Caviar Blue from old computer will not be compared):
Intel Core i5-3350P Paid 10 Dollars Extra Corsair H60 Paid 1 Dollar Extra Arctic Cooling MX4 4G Saved 5 Dollars Asus p8Z77-V LK ATX LGA 1155 Saved 30 Dollars G.Skill Ripjaws RAM Paid 8 Dollars Extra Seagate Barracuda 2TB Paid 1 Dollar Extra MSI R7 260X Gaming 1 GB Not Available in US, however compared to the price by the HIS equivalent I saved somewhere between 50 to 100 dollars. Cause MSI always cost 50 to 100 dollars more for their HIS counter part. NZXT Phantom 410 Case Saved 20 Dollars PSU Actual PSU is not Available in US, but it is CoolerMaster Optical Drive Saved 8 Dollars Fans Not Bothering, cause not too many people are obsessed with filling every fan slot in their case. Keyboard The red switch version is going for 110 dollars, since Red is always 10 dollars more than brown. I assume the brown version of the keyboard would cost about 100 dollars. So I saved about 30 bucks on the keyboard. Mouse Saved 30 dollars (if you can, when you on vacation in China, get your Razer gear there, much cheaper LOL, of course check authenticity first).
Total Saved/Spend Extra
Saved 113 Dollars if not including Graphics cards. Including graphics card, saved at least 163 Dollars or 213 Dollars Maximum.
