New Box

This weekend I built myself a new Computer. My old one (a Dell XPS 720) was showing its age even though I had been upgrading it along the way.


Here are the components I used. I bought them all from

The New System

I can say that I am quite happy with the new system. Windows 8.1 installed without a problem. The drivers provided by MSI work quite well and the overclocking tools are very nice. All in all, the system is very quite even though the case is not sound isolated at all.
