Here is where I'll be posting a log on the construction of my new PC, which I am calling my REDBOX. Hopefully the meaning behind that name shall soon become apparent
I have taken quite an extended period of time to select the components for my rig, and have currently received most
, but not all, of them. This means it's definitely stil a WIP, and I'll certainly take suggestions for components that I haven't yet built into the system and you haven't seen in any of the current videos.
I'll be updating this thread with newer videos as they become relevant, as I obtain the newer components for the system.
Anyways, here's the first video that I have recorded, which documents the unboxing of most of the critical parts that I'll be using:
The CPU idles at around 26°C, and I have yet to see it hotter than 50°C on load.
Oh yeah - it also has a slight overclock, using the simple ASUS in-Windows utility to put it just over 4GHz (though it only achieves that on load due to the dynamic nature of clocking these days).
Here's my new monitor finally
delivered, after such a long delay!
