- Athlon64 3700+ 754 Clawhammer 2.4GHz @12x209MHz; Powercolor-GameFX RadeonX850XT(@PE clocks);1.5GB RAM (3x512MB,DDR400 @2.5-3-3-7);Gigabyte GA-K8NE/nforce4 passive cooled chipset!!; LogitechMX518;AC ATI Silencer5-Rev2;Noname CPU-cooler,looks like a Zalman, but was cheaper and does its job quite well;PSU: Revoltec ChromusII RNPS450 (430Watt)
3 blue fans:1 blowing air in at the rearside, 1 blowing out at the rear side, 1 blowing cool air to the AtiSilencer5.I used Arctic Silver5 as thermal paste for CPU and VGA.I put on the top a few passive coolers, the CPU fan is slowed down at non hearing point and keeps it in gaming constant at 50°C.The case has in front a multi-color LED, which changes every few seconds it colors.For better airflow i put some wires behind the mainboard.
This is my first self-built computer and it has a good gaming performance although its 754 and i dont have dualchannel.I think its not a bad system for a 15 year old and i get 6200 3D-05marks without full overclocking in ddr333(ddr400:7530).Oc'ed i get 70063Dmarks with 580/620 vga freq and 209 HTLink frequency.
