Upgraded the Gaming Rig, Built an unRAID Server

Recommended Posts

What up?  I have had an "Adult job for a while now and thought I would upgrade my computer from my last build in 2013. Should work well for anything I throw at it. Thought I would share my recent creations with the clan.  One is a gaming rig, the other an unRAID server for my media and to backup all of my devices. 

Main Rig that I will upgrade:

PSU: Power and Cooling MK III 750W


Boot Drive w/ Win 10: Samsung 960  1TB  M.2 

HDD 1: Samsung 840 SSD 1TB

HDD 2: WD 4TB Black x 2





New unRAID build:

Case: HAF 912 

CPU: i5 3570K (O.C. 4.2Ghz)  Still puting in work.

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V

RAM: 4x4GB G. Skillz DDR3 816MHz (16GB)

PSU: EVGA Supernova 550 G2 (ECO Mode)

Cache Drive: Samsung 840 PRO - 256GB

For what?  The unRAID server?  The thing is whisper quite with the fans right now and the temps are very low.


Or do you mean replace the AIO cooler?  To be honest, this is my first AIO cooler and I am not that impressed.  The temps seem slightly higher then a heat-sink and fan, the noise is defiantly grater.
