    Computer specs

    I am not sure if this has been posted on another thread or not so here it goes.
    I would not mind seeing some other things added to the computer specs section. I would like to see what other users are using for mice, keyboards, headphones, and cases they are using.

    I think this would be a great addition as it could spark some good conversation.

    Re: Computer specs

    It wouldn't hurt, but conversation is probably more likely to result from asking questions or posting opinions/reviews on individual items. I'll probably be doing that soon as I move to a mini-itx build as moving to another city taught me a big lesson about my current Coolermaster Storm Trooper case. Having said that I'm all for a little more detail for 'Computer Specs'.

    That looks like a good case. What happened to it in the move?

    i'll look into adding mice and keyboard for now. Hopefully we will be able to keep it when the new site comes out.

    It survived the move just fine, but I almost didn't survive hauling it up the stairs to my top floor flat! It's really, really heavy. It's also big, which was fine for where I was living when I bought it, but now it's taking up too much space. As I might well have to move again in a few months (I'm subletting), I'm going to replace it with something easier to move. I'm going mini-itx, so I'll be getting a Corsair Obsidian 250D.

    Love the 750D I think that will be my next case! I have been looking into the G710+ the only thing I do not like (minor) is that i would prefer red WASD keys

    Re: Computer specs

    yea I can understand it taking up to much space I have my tower on my desk so its does not get pet hair inside it and it kinda of a pain in the butt for sure. I would be interested to know more about your mini itx build when you have it complete and have used it for a while.

    Re: Computer specs

    Man that looks really good! I like how clean you have it inside. How do you like the liquid cooling? do you find it makes a big difference in temps?
    I find my air cooled temps are not to bad. I idle at 25 c/77 f for my cpu and my graphics card idles at 26 c /79 f then we playing I ussally see my graphic card get to about 66 c /150 f and cpu approx 50 c /122 f

    Re: Computer specs

    Agreed, that is well laid out. Personally I think a decent all-in-one liquid cooler is easier to handle than a big air cooler and they've reached the point where they're better at cooling than most, if not all, of the big air coolers. They're also less likely to interfere with RAM.

    I should have all the parts for my system on Monday, helped by selling all kinds of things I no longer need.

    Obsidian 250D mini-itx case.
    Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI mini-itx motherboard.
    AMD A10 7850K APU.
    Toshiba 128GB SSD.
    EVGA 750W SuperNova G2.
    200mm CoolerMaster MegaFlow fan.

    I went the AMD route because the equivalent Intel combination of CPU and motherboard would have cost an extra £60, which is about $99. Saving that money allowed me to get an SSD. The Obsidian case is quite big for mini-itx, but still just a few cm wider, 25% shallower, and about 40 - 45% shorter than my current case. It also has room for a 240mm radiator, a 290mm GPU, a full size optical drive, a full size PSU, and a 200mm fan at the front, hence the new fan. I had to get a new PSU as my current one isn't modular, and I didn't want to even try putting that in an itx case!

    I'll be transferring some parts from my current system. Certainly 2 hard drives, perhaps a fan or two, probably my GPU, and possibly my optical drive.

    I'll certainly report on how things go with the build and getting used to it.

    Re: Computer specs

    I think that was a good choice to go AMD in your case and a SSD is well worth the money!!! Modular PSU is really nice for a smaller case. It has always been a per peeve of mine having all the useless wires in a case.

    can not wait to see the pics of your new build.

    Re: Computer specs

    The AIO Corsair liquid cooling (H110) I use works great. My cpu temps never breaks 63c at full load (4.5ghz). I use to run full water but these AIO are maintenance free that's why I switched. My gpu gets hot though, around 80c~82c. When I ran tri-fire (7990+7970) gpu temps were hitting as high as 90c so I might go back full water for this reason. I am waiting for water blocks to get cheaper. I am getting a new psu since my old 1000w psu died but covered by warranty. I am getting rid of it once it's back and replacing it with the new evga 1000w psu.

    Re: Computer specs

    I know, it's always a chore dealing with those cables.

    I've never had an SSD before, so I'm looking forward to it.

    Edit to add: Just timed my boot, from power button pressed to last of 4 taskbar icons (Steam) appeared. 1m 47s! I thought it was getting slower but I didn't know it was that bad.

    Edit the second: Waiting for 1 delivery to me and another to the nearest Amazon locker (cheapest price and I had a big voucher after using trade-in). It's like being a kid again.
