New PC build

I finally put together my new PC.  Holy crap is it blazing fast.

The specs are:

Rampage X48 chipset motherboard

Intel Extreme quad-core CPU

8GB of Mushkin Redline


Western Digital Velociraptor 300GB

Seasonic M12D power supply

My only gripe and problem is with my Seasonic power supply.  It emits a very high pitched noise which I’ve read about and apparently it is related to coil whine.

I have another Seasonic M12 700W PSU from my other computer so I’m probably going to install that and RMA this one.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and it is truly amazing.  It is leaps and bounds ahead of Vista and XP.  A co-worker had told me that he’s never looking back.  From what I’ve seen so far I feel the same way.  There is always tomorrow though.

The PC build is not done yet.  I still need to get better SATA cables, more fans (Delta extremes 4000RPM), and tidy up the cabling.  But for the most part this PC is a done deal.
