My new gaming rig
« on: September 06, 2013, 04:02:54 AM EDT »

Ladies and gentlebeings. As you may have heard in the chat on the TCL forums, I got me a new gaming pc.

And she kicks total arse.








Now, of course, you want to know what's inside I'm guessing. So here is a list of the specs for you to drool over :

Motherboard : MSI Z87-G45 Gaming
RAM : 16 GB Corsair Vengeance LP (OC'd to 1600 MHz)
Case : Cooler Master Storm Scout II Advanced
HDD : My old HDD @ 5400 RPM, 1 TB of space. (Bit of a bottleneck)
OS : Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. (This caused me so much hurt, it took me 2 hours to get it to reinstall on my new hardware)
GPU : MSI Twin Frozr III R7950
PSU : Cooler Master GX 600W
And my pride and joy :
CPU : Intel i7 4770k (OC'd to 4.0 GHz)
CPU cooler : Arctic Freezer i30 (With Arctic Silver 5 paste I got from a friend)

So, what do you guys think? Pretty neat, hmm?

Very nice rig!

Like you said, I think the only bottleneck is your HDD. Definitely look into a small(ish) SSD for your main OS/Games. It makes a HUGE difference in performance.

Congrats!

Wow, quite the goal :P
If you want long battery life, go for the Intel 4xxx series processors. They have built-in features that lengthen battery life and such.
