Wow, it's been years since I started a thread... but here I go. I kind of skipped the building part because this project was going very slowly. I got a new 23 inch Asus monitor from Boxing day sales last year and got me I7-2600k for for my main rig. I am planning to replace the laptop with it. The bigger shiny thing is my media PC. Its spec is i3-4130 (Haswell) with Asus Z87I-Deluxe http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116946 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132028 It has 3 2TB HDDs and 1 TB HDD which is dedicated for torrent due to their heavy I/O usage. It has no dedicated gpu. It doesn't need one. My soon-to-be main rig is below. i7-2600k with 8gb ram. It's got 760 GTX: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127772 Case is Lian Li: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112407 I've absolute love for bare aluminum. I've built a lot of SFF PCs (In my signatures and I've built more that wasn't posted.) but this is the smallest one I've ever built that is HD gaming capable. I've done thermal testing on the rig. The temp is alright. It maxes out around 90c which is fine. Some of you may jump at such temp but really computer components run and last fine at that temp. My current desktop.
