Summer is over, and I thought it was just about time to cut some weight for the leaner, tighter body everyone is after. I don’t mean me — I am talking about my home gaming computer. It’s been about to two years since I got my Obsidian Series® 800D, and what an amazing full-tower case it is, but I think it's time for a refresh. I'm looking for something lighter, smaller and a little more stylish, so I set my sights set on the Special Edition White Graphite Series™ 600T computer case. While am at it, I'll give the old gaming rig some upgraded hardware with a Force Series™ 3 60GB SSD and 12GB Dominator memory upgrade kit. Keep in mind this build isn’t going to be the ultimate performance machine, but it will be pretty to look at and show case the versatility of the 600T case with some minor mods for water cooling.
At this point you have already installed the CPU into the motherboard socket and locked it into place; now it’s time to attach the CPU cooler.
As many gamers already know, one of the most highly anticipated PC games of the year is just days from being released. Of course, I am talking about GTA 5. With the release just on the horizon, you may be wondering if your current system will be able to run the game, or if you have only played GTA on consoles, you might be wondering what it would take to build a PC that can play GTA 5 at the recommended specs. In this blog we will pick out the parts for a silent, budget focused build that we will be putting together specifically for GTA 5.
Corsair will be at PAX East this weekend in Boston, MA from the 6th through the 9th.
