My Own Good Build Gaming PC (Mark 2)

Finally my Dell Inspiron 1520 can rest!
Ever since I receive it as a college(2008 my first year) gift, It is Running at full load and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
why? COLLEGE my friend! I need some extra cash.


I use it to "BOT" at Philippine Ragnarok Online and sell stuff.
Yup, Dual core 1.5 GHz with 2GB ram can do that! i even don't know if it has a integrated video card.

If you ask if i know how to build a PC,
My answer is "NO". i just watch some tutorials in YouTube. for the past after i started saving some money.

If you ask me,Is it easy to build? Can i do it?
Yup! you can do it! why? because i build it my self, not the so hard. just like LEGO piece.

Yes, you can. we are one bro!(or sis)

So Let's Start

O gawd! I forgot to have a photo shoot with every parts of my PC! Maybe too much super adrenaline. I do my best.

Collect all the stickers, I'm not using them. Installed PSU, and my SSD Boot drive. First thought was so hard to do it. Not that hard, just like doing Lego with screws. One good about this Case is the motherboard tray can be remove. Also the lower chamber have a lot of space to do with wires and some other stuff.



Hardest part is the Front Panel input installation. I just read the manual to make sure i'm correct even it has a diagram below the ports.
I Almost break the motherboard when im trying to install the CPU block of Antec h20 920 kuhler. Just using the INTEL screw not the AMD screw, my bad.



Installation of Radiator is tough one. So afraid the the tubes will bend and break.





Video card and Wi-fi card


Here's some other view.



Cable Management outside the box is also needed. Use adjustable Velcro and problem is solve.





Additional Monitor from Old grandma's PC, VGA swith and TV tuner.





Here's a summary about my build log.
April 1st 2014, assembling 3 hours i think
April 2, after work continuing my build,3 hours.
April 3, just finish it and will pick up my keyboard and WiFi adapter at shop. and trying to install windows 7.
April 4. yup, just got that error,"Finding drivers when installing windows 7 via USB drive"

Just got some major problem when Im installing the OS(windows 7). installed it via a USB drive. Then got this error when installing, It always find drivers and cant continue to install the Windows 7. Solve it by transferring it to other USB socket, after it got boot in the installation, then go with it. I think its a problem with USB 3.0.

April 5, i started playing all day, all weekend!

Tweak it somehow, under voltage both ram and CPU.





Finished!  THATS NOT A PRINTER!!
Black as awesome. Admired much in cube case.





Thanks to my lovely wife for supporting to build this PC.

If you have anymore questions, Just ask me in the comment thread. I will try to answer it.
