Just got myself a Gold rated Silverstone 500W PSU for 40$.
I love VFM buys.
That's super pricing. Planning to use it as is or trim off the unwanted connectors?
As it is for now.
I am planning to make a housing for Rig from a small Amazon carton box.
This PSU looks small enough for a HTPC rig.
Gold rating and 500W gives me peace of mind.
Corsair has screwed up with CX series so taking risk with Silverstone.
My HTPC ghetto Rig is now complete.
Here is a run down of parts Ordered and received. Some are still in transit.
Intel i3-4360 3.7 Ghz with HT - 99$
Motherboard ASRock H81M-HDS mATX Board - 49$
8 GB of 2x4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 RAM - 55$ (used)
1 TB of WD Caviar Blue - 40$
24" Acer G6 G246HLAbd 1080p Monitor - 117$
Silverstone Tek 500W Single Rail Gold Rated Power Supply - 40$ (used)
Al Cheapo Keyboard as a stop gap solution - 7$
Everything well under 400$ mark.
A very decent Haswell-E Rig under 400$ is commendable.
Waiting for my RAMs to reach here. Once they are here, I am all set.
Almost, decided to get Team Vulcans 2133Mhz but then decided against it due to diminishing returns you at at 2133Mhz.
Thank you to everyone who helped me to splurge like idiot.
Seller shipped cheap and Rams are in a wormhole.
Regarding the KB, If I get some switches/switch tester out to you from within the US, will you be willing to bare the shipping from and back to whoever sends them to you?
damn it I need to get a chassis.
I have used this one, pretty nifty for the size.
I opted for a cheap 5$ keyboard as stop gap solution. Will get a TKL once I move to CA.
Thanks for the help though, appreciate it.
The keyboard zealot will not rest until everyone starts building their own keyboard.
Mechboard master race.
That is racist to other keyboards.
Come at me bro!
Lol..wtf is this..
