My System Specs

Default I5 Build w/friend's help ;)

Yeah after long time of planning I finally decided to buy parts. my parts are:

Case: CM 690II basic
CPU: i5 750
Mobo: ASUS p7p55d
PSU: M12D Seasonic 850w modular
Ram: G Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600mhz 2x2 gb 1.5v kit
CD: Samsung SH-S243D/BEBE 24X Black DVD Writer SATA OEM
HDD:WD Caviar black 640gb 64mb cache(plan to raid 0 maybe later)
HeatSink: Well i know its some zalman heatsink, currently my friend holds the box well i don't have. With 2 slip streams medium airflow 120mm fan.
Case Fans: 2x Slip streams medium airflow 120mm fan.(plan to get 2 more later maybe 3)
GPU:Currently using a 9800GT from XFX(planning to upgrade to a 5850 or 5870)

Well I got most of my parts except my mobo, that is coming a day late. So while I waited me and my friend just setup some of the parts since my mobo is coming in tmr.


Yeah so no mobo or heatsink yet. but thats everything else i basically need to get a computer running. so I so far put in two fans one exhaust up top, one intake on the side. put in my HDD, Optic Drive and PSU so far
Whole View

Side Fan
(Can't put two i believe my heatsink will be in the way)

Top Fan

Optic Drive
(i don't think it looks as great but atleast its black ;) )


Also from the whole view you see i took out 4 of the HHD carrying cases or whatever they are called. and the two rails since i will be only having 2 HDD at most. Also no close up on my PSU, but i don't think its a really big issue.

MOBO comes in tomorrow and same with heatsink and i think the rest of my build will be done and ready to go. So hopefully updates tomorrow. Hopefully i got good cable management too :)
