March 2013 Build

Hey guys, long time viewer of the OC3D videos, but first post here. Here is my latest personal computer build done around March-April 2013, except for the monitors. Things are getting a little dusty inside as this computer is running 24X7 for my computer business and other server duties such as Plesk.

CPU: Intel 3770K @ 4.8GHz
Mobo: Asus Maximus V Formula
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 16GB (8x2) 1866
Video: (2) Gigabyte Windforce 7950s
PSU: XFX Pro Black Edition 850 (Hybrid fan mode was defective but didn't feel like sending it back in as it worked fine with the fan always on)
SSD: (2) OCZ Vector 128GB RAID 0
HDD: (2) Seagate Barracuda 3.0TB
First Generation WD Green 1.0TB
Cooler: Corsair H100i
Case: NZXT Switch 810
Monitors: (3) Qnix QX2710 2560X1440 (the stands are cheap, but I put them all on a triple monitor stand within a couple of weeks after purchase)
Original Logitech G15 Keyboard and G5 mouse













And a single pic of my old Q6600 machine!

looks good but id have the fans pushing air out rather than pushing in or pulling out. and then having the front fans pulling in and the back pulling in with a filter, then you might get less dust

I have tried the top fans pushing out or pulling out, made no difference in performance, but I seemed to have a lot more dust buildup on the radiator with them pushing. I'm not sure what way the front and back fans are rotating. The front and bottom are filtered, but not the back.

i was just trying to get you to keep positive pressure to try and keep dust down

The front feels to be pulling in and the back pushing out. I could try flipping the back around so its pulling in as well, but would be in need of some kind of filter material.

Your Q6600 machine brings back good memories of the early core 2 duo days

you can get some cheapish fan covers no problem. might help keep it cleaner longer.

I recently got some silverstone 120mm and 140mm fan filters and would recommend them. Only like £2 or £3 each.

Sold my two AMD cards over the last couple of days on eBay for more then I payed for them when I built the computer back in March. I don't think that happens too often in the computer world. Now I am down to Intel HD 4000 graphics until I order my replacements.
