My Rig Revamped
Tuesday, December 30, 2008
Hi again! I'm back after a few days of no internet.
It was no accident, the internet was not down.
I was revamping my computer, which is also the very computer used to make this blog.
Let me share some pictures of the end result.
Side panel removed.
With the side panel.
The wires... Bent and hidden. My fingers are all bruised by bending them.
Hardisk - WD Raptor 74Gb -> WD Velociraptor
Motherboard - DFI Bloodiron -> DFI Lanparty JR (Coolest looking matx)
Casing - Coolermaster 330 -> Coolermaster 340
Graphics Card - Nvidia 8600gts -> XFX Nvidia 9600gt Zalman limited edition
Power Supply - OCZ 500W StealthXStream -> Aerocool 750W
Looks - Looks much cooler than the old version
CPU Overclock Speed - 3.45 GHz -> 3.00 Ghz (The new motherboard is not very suitable for my CPU)
Ram Overclock Speed - 1151 mhz -> 1008 mhz (Ram speed is linked to cpu speed)
My Fingers - Suffered lots of cuts
Temperatures - From 75 C max -> 63 C max
