Smile My First PC Project

Hello everyone!

I'm new to this forum and my first post will be the project I'm currently working on. A friend of mine reffered me to this place and told me to post the whole project here, and that's what I will be doing the next month or so.

Starting off I will show you my plans.

I started to gain some money and thought I should build a computer. I went on a norwegian forum called "Freak" and asked for help. I got alot of replies, but a guy named "frufsa", who's also on this forum, said that he could helped me. So we chatted on skype and made this list of components.

CPU: Intel i7 3770k
GPU: MSI GTX 680 Lighting (I will also buy another 680 with SLI)
PSU: Corsair AX860i
Motherboard: MSI MPower Z77
RAM: Avexir Core Series MPOWER 16GB, 1600 MHz
SSD: Samsung 840 PRO Series, 256GB
CASE: Corsair Vengeance C70 Black
CPU cooler: Corsair H100i

We tried to make the color scheme as matching as possible, so we went for the Yellow look on the MPower and the MSI lighting edition. And Frufsa found this awesome MPower RAM.

Further plans with the case is to replace the window to a full solid windows without the grills in it. It will be way cooler and you can see more of what's inside. I'm also going to paint the colour rings in the AF and SP corsair fans yellow.

Here is a picture of the parts that have arived so fare and I will keep updating this post when I get more parts and finally start building the machine itself

Welcome to the forum

Nice spec sheet there. looking forward to seeing you build.

Remember to plan what you're going to do and take your time. it's so tempting to just plough straight in.
