good for the price, got the same one for my brother's and it's working well
Hey philip, thanks for looking into this. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the issue.
not sure if trolling or serious
To the OP, what speed are your fans running at? If you have any plugged into the PSU directly they may be going at 100% which is very noisy. That happened to me at first until I got an extension to plug into one of the fan headers on the mobo.
Great build by the way, mine is almost exactly the same, except I don't have an SSD yet :)
i noticed, but if it performs well i'll be ok with it
I was thinking something was off because I noticed there was no room below the card to put a second card, but I obviously wasn't thinking very hard about it :)
Yeah, I was thinking about a 500W at first, but I was having trouble finding something of good quality for that price except the CX series which are always MIR discounts. The estimated max power on here is around 275W, the VP-450 can deliver up to 360W combined power on the 12V rails, and I've read some reviews of it that say it can pull more without exploding :)
Mobo had a $40 bundle discount at Microcenter, the video card had a $30 MIR.
I see you have a Caviar Black drive in your machine, do you like it?
great catch, i will switch it! thanks :)
edit: I just added a picture with the gfx card moved. while I was in there I also fixed the HDD activity LED, I had it backwards.
fair points, thanks for the input. that's a nice looking case!
we'll see how the WD drive fares, it's my first internal drive of theirs.
Thank you! In one of the pictures the USB 2.0 connector is just hangin out, but I figured out where to plug it.
thank you for your comment. was it supposed to be on the front page of pcpartpicker when i posted it?
by repost do you mean i'd have to delete it and submit it again?
