in the Coolermaster Cosmos II
Friday, December 1, 2017 by starkers | Discussion: Personal Computing
Couldn't wait 'til after Christmas, which apart from Christmas Dinner and Christmas Pud is just another day for me these days. We'll just have a quiet dinner and day here among ourselves, and maybe visit or get a visit from my sister. Other than that it'll be fairly non-eventful, which suits me fine.
So anyway, I've been wanting to rebuild for a while now, and earlier this evening I decided to bite the bullet and order the parts I want:
Asus ROG Crosshair Hero VI/AMD Ryzen 1700 bundle with Wraith Spire cooler.
ASUS AMD Raedon RX 570 Strix OC 4Gb graphics card.
Sound Blaster ZxR sound card.
It all came to more than I was originally going to spend, but I poached the sound card from the Coolermaster Cosmos II rig to go into my Thermaltake Level 10 machine and decided upon the Soundblaster ZxR to replace it and up the ante with something that has more grunt.
I have all the other parts I require, PSU, SSDs, HDDs, etc.... plus a few PCIE expansion cards to add other options, such as a HD video capture card, additional SATA ports and USB 3/3.1 ports.
When the parts arrive I'll take pics and do a more comprehensive list, and once I've completed the rebuild some before and after pics.
