After almost a year tinkering with my second build The "Game" Cube I learned that it was way to loud for me.
It sat on my desk and could I not concentrate on learning or working and even after I put it under my desk, I wasn't satisfied. So i had to do something. I looked for a new case and a beefier cooler, because the Thermalright AXP-200R wasn't cutting it (it was way to loud for the performance it deliverd).
List of new (to me) parts I decided to get:
- CPU Cooler
- Graphics Card
- RAM, because I always have Opera open with all my Tabs even when i play
- Additional Fan so I could run two but at a slower speed
I sourced the parts and bought them in steps. First the RAM, because it was easy to get a hold of and the prices started to rise on DDR3 Memory. After that I got a MSI Radeon 470 but sold it after a few months. So I kept looking for a new Case, Video Card and CPU Cooler.
The case choice was pretty easy. I knew be quiet! had some of the best noise isolated cases so I got the be quiet! Silent Base 600 because the 800 was to big for my needs.
I had an eye on this MSI GTX 760 for a while because it was a complete package . It was a used Card but it had everything still in the box and the be quiet! Shadow Rock 2 Cooler i got also used, but it was never installed and even had the Label on the bottom of it that you should peel off before installing.
Thank you for reading.
