Most likely a hardware issue if it's just crashing like that.
That's why I put the quotes. It would be awesome to be able to have Xbox OS on it if you wanted custom built console.
Xbox one - "8 core"
This - solid dual core
They make hackintoshes, why not "haxboxes"?
Go for a case mod with a very old case that you adapt for these parts then add a modern twist to it. Does that make sense?
Why the choice of an air cooler instead of a closed loop liquid cooler?
Akitan, there is no such thing as too powerful in the computer world.
How hard did you push the CPU when measuring temperature? I find it hard to believe the stock cooler is that capable.
How would you rate the A Data SSD? It's cheap but I'd like to know how reliable it is.
Oh yeah... +1
It's such a beautifully simple mod! A little spray paint changes the whole look.
I love how the 5.25" bays are full of fan controller! Who needs optical drives anymore :P
Awesome build but why the two different SSD models?
Beautiful computer! If you want more color and LEDs then you should look into a RAM cooler and maybe this PSU.
Awesome RGB fans
Here are some Cooler Master that I find to be attractive. Not sure about prices but pick one and look it up. Check it out here.
Also for $50 you could upgrade your dual core to a quad core which would improve future proofing significantly!
I did the same thing. I just unscrewed my motherboard from the standoffs and pushed it away from the back of then case. Then I just slide the IO shield into place and snapped it in. Put motherboard back and screw into place. Of course I did this before I installed any PCIE's so make sure they aren't connected to the case either.
Temperatures seem way too cold. Your room would have to be very cold (like 50°F) to achieve a temperature of 9°C. Other than that, beautiful machine.
Might want some extra cooling in the processor. Upgrade to maybe a cheap single fan liquid cooler or a larger heat sink. 16GB RAM will last you for years. If year plan to upgrade that then try to use as few modules as you can (ex. 2 slots at max of 32GB - 1x16gb module) so you can just buy another to throw in. I don't know much about sound cards but you don't need anything too special. Just enough to support yr system.
Grab a piece a ply wood and start building!
Yes. It may have been my motherboard's heat sinks but I ended up bolting it into the the grate holes instead of the screw holes.
If you really like blue LEDs, here's a nice one I use.
