Killer Custom Gaming Rig Build 2014


Today I would like to take the time to do something that I really enjoy doing and that is to build ,sorry correction for now create a custom gaming PC list of parts using the best, most powerful and reliable parts that money can buy. It’s my hope to build this monster or at least see my monster PC come alive if someone out there could build this beast of a computer.

This has been a hobby of mine to build Gaming and video editing PC’s and they can be a fun project and gives a sense of satisfaction that you have built something fun and interesting. So without further hesitation let’s start looking on the list of parts that we would need to bring this monster into reality:

Custom Gaming PC Build.

1. The Case (System Unit) (X1)

Corsair Obsidian Series 900D Super Tower Computer Case

A case must say something special about a PC, it should grab attention and leave nothing up to the imagination as to whats under the hood after all Gaming PC components are very expensive so why would you want to hide them away.

One of the best a most reliable cases that exemplifies this is the :Corsair Obsidian Series 900D Super Tower Computer Case. The 900D will house all your components comfortably, with all fifteen(15) fan and five (5) radiator mount points that will be needed to build the beast.

The 900D is made from Aluminium for durable and light weight construction that will last, ideal for the enthusiast that will be looking to upgrade is Rig in the future, which we all know will probably be the next siz months to a year, that why they call it bleeding edge technology.

5. Power Supply (x1)

Power Supply

Corsair Professional Series AX 1200 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold

This PSU is is not only powerful but comes highly rated and is reliable and know for not quitting on you under pressure.

Best of all this unit is modular and will reduce the clutter of cables that is typical of traditional power supply units.

7. Graphics Card (x2)

ASUS GeForce GTX690 4096MB GDDR5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No gaming or editing rig is complete without the best Graphics card that money can buy, a Gaming rig is simply a sole less shell without a kick ass GPU behind the beast for this we chose. We chose dual Asus Geforce  GTX 690 as anything more is overkill and is a waste of time in our opinion.

9. CPU Liquid Cooling

Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H100i

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Normally I would suggest a custom loop but in this case a self contained liquid cooling unit is perfect as it does not require maintenance, simply install and forget it. The Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler or the H100i takes up where it’s predecessors left off providing superior liquid cooling all without having to break the bank.
