Technology >> New PC Phase One

September 23, 2015

My current primary computer was built in 2011. It’s time to build a new one. Over the past month I have been purchasing components to build a new beastly computer. I now have most of what I need and the final pieces will arrive in the next few days.

Here’s the build:

CPU Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer/3.1 ATX LGA2011-3
Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4-2666
Storage Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5” Solid State Drive
Video Card Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB
Case Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX
Power Supply Corsair AX760

I put everything that I currently have together to verify that it all works. I don’t have the 980 Ti yet, so I threw in an old Radeon 5850 that I had lying around.

the beautiful motherboard
components installed and everything works!

The case is scheduled to arrive today, so the next step will be to give these parts a permanent home.
