Making X58 last a bit longer in 2018
So decided to update my x58 based super pc to 2017, done a few upgrades on stuff that was bugging me
So here is the ole case and dust with awesome and well routed cables that i spent a lot of time on
1 - Antec 1200 case which is loud and about 8 years old now swapped out for a nice Corsair Crystal 570x RGB and a few extra SP120 Fans
2 - Its been De Dusted - aka the cpu cooler was a bit clogged up so a good clean and motherboard cleanse + new thermal paste etc.
3 - a nice new Nvidia GTX 1060 instead of crossfire radeons 5770s and a gtx 950 ive also had in there.
4 - USB 3 been added via pci express add in card. Its nice to have USB3, even media pc which is an amd 860k, a88x has usb3 and type c included but x58 is a bit older, but still nice to copy stuff a lot faster to nas from usb hdds
5 - I wanted RGB so got some rgb stripes from deepcool and a remote control, so final look I think aint too bad, apart from cable colours on atx 24 pin and pci 6 pin power cables, and the power supply shroud can only hide so many cables, with rgb and other stuff i had quite a few cables to put in down there and they are mostly hidden, but maybe another sorting is required??
6 - planned next month is cpu going from i7 920 to a nice xeon x5670. Worth it for only 35 quid. Get a decent IPC upgrade. 45nm vs 32nm, and a few more cores and a decent oc shud be gd.
let me know what you think
