New $9XX Gaming Rig Build Using The HAF 912 Case


Hey guys..
I have been building my own pc's for sometime but I have taken a few years off and finally gotten back into the gaming arena and wanted something a tad more robust than my current setup.
So I set out to make my build somewhere in the $9XX dollar range and tried to make it a 2-3 yr bullet proof design. And I am sure I'll add some other gadgets to it as well like a possible fan controller... I'd like to hear some comments or suggestions.

Ohh yeah.. The top left corner of the case did get damaged a bit while in transit via UPS. The Styrofoam was broken when I opened the box, ahhh crap, but I'm not waiting for a new one to get sent and just to have it happen all over again...

*COOLER MASTER HAF 912 ( I was very close to painting the inside a satin black, but my side case will never be off anyhow..)
*ASUS M4A87TD EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
*AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz
*ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler
*G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
*MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
*CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W
*ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
*APEVIA CF12SL-UBL 120mm Blue LED Case Fan (5)
*WINDOWS 7 PREMIUM 7 FULL
*Seagate 500GB 7200rpm HDD
*And a small box of thumb screws to add to the HAF 912 case.

Here are some pics of the progress so far, I should be buttoning everything up tomorrow afternoon if my little 9 month old allows me.













--And with some of the internals in the case.. I just ran out of time tonight before I had to leave for work.

Nice and clean...
Now you just need to take the whole thing apart and paint the inside of the HAF with a nice matte black paint for the ultimate look.

Be sure to pre-tin everything (even soldered stuff!) with leaded solder. None of the RoHS junk. You want good old fashioned toxic heavy metals. ~ Bobnova
