Its that time to enquire about a new machine to replace the old girl here.
I am looking to spend about 2200 and i have monitors, KB, mouse etc.

This is a gaming machine. mostly play total war games but others too. general use too.


I am after:

Clean black case, pref no perspex panel or very small window (or a very clean triple fan front setup)
Air cooled
16gb ram
SSD HD
2TB HD


No need to include a GFX card, i have a Asus strix 1070 to reuse from the old PC

thanks

Morning Pennzoil,


I've quoted up a well balanced system to go with your GTX1070.

From personal expereince I know the total war series is fairly biased towards clock speeds so an overclockable CPU is definitely preferable.


Have a look over the below quote and let me know what you think and if you would be open to a windowed case the 275r might be a nice option.

thank you for taking to time to draw this up, i appreciate it.

There are a few things id like to change and i have a few questions if i may

Firstly id like to drop the SSD down to 250gb
The 275R- glass windowed case seems much cleaner to me, probably go with that

now the CPU cooler, are there any color options or diff colored products to loosely match the case?
Am i better to go with water cooled?

Afternoon Pennzoil,


Here is your updated quote as requested, please let me know your thoughts on this.

The CPU cooler has been changed to a 280mm Water Cooler as this will have similar performance to the D15 cooler your currently have.

Afternoon, Im nearly ready to purchase a few of these parts

I am not a fan of the mobo pretty much just because of how it looks.
i was thinking something like this.

https://www.computerloun...entview.asp?partid=30608

it looks like i will go with the NH-D15S cooler after all, Will this cooler clear the port shield at the back on this mobo?

is there a mounting kit required?

Morning Pennzoil,


I have updated your order to the new case as requested :)


There are a few components we have sold out of over the Christmas/ New years break which are the RAM and HDD as well as the case now.


These can all be ordered in within 1-2 days once the order is confirmed.

That will be fine, I'm in no rush.

Id like to ask why the PSU has changed, is it do with the case?

Afternoon Pennzoil,


Apologies I was supposed to mention that in my previous email, the corsair power supply is due to arrive at the end of this month.


Because of this delay I changed the Power Supply to a suitable alternative.
