Hello, PPCP community. I am here with another computer build that I am also proud of.
Now, this one was a half-request, half-desire build. I'll explain as quick as possible.
For many, MANY years, since I was little, I have attended a church that I still attend to this day, and everyone was always contributing to something. I also wanted to help out on something, but I couldn't find something that I could really be of use. Then, I found an opportunity. I noticed that the computer they were using to display to three TV's through an HDMI splitter...was a laptop. At the same time, so many programs were running, with the main one taking so much resources that it would cause the computer to slow down and occasionally freeze. So, the tech in me woke up and decided to contribute. I told the pastor to allow me to build a stronger, better PC for the many tasks required, and he was very compliant, saying it was a great idea. Now, here are the parts:
CPU With all of the programs that the computer was going to run, a multi-core CPU, a 6-core at that, was needed, and this fit the bill. No overclocking either.
MOTHERBOARD Just a compatible motherboard. Didn't need much more.
MEMORY As mentioned, multitasking will be ever-so present, so 16GB would be plenty.
STORAGE Speed is not an issue with their situation, so no SSD was needed, and 1TB was well more than enough.
VIDEO CARD Ok, now. There will be ABSOLUTELY NO gaming done on this computer. I just needed something that would display to a DVI monitor and an HDMI splitter. I understand that would still not justify getting this card, but overall, I like putting lots of headroom on all of my parts, so when the moment arrives that demand becomes high, it can handle it.
CASE My pastor loves the color white, and what can be more white than a case that is completely white all-around with no windows like an NZXT H230? Honestly, when I saw pictures of this case, I was calm and simply intrigued. But, when I actually laid my eyes on it, my heart melted! It looked so amazing and gorgeous, and I felt like I wanted one for myself, not to build in it, but to just have it and admire it in my room. Anyways, it had plenty of room for all of my components and decent space in the side for some cable management. However, my power supply was semi-modular, so it wasn't as difficult to manage as many people would usually experience. Speaking of the power supply...
POWER SUPPLY A good semi-modular power supply from a well-known manufacturer that supplies good enough wattage was all that was needed.
WIRELESS NETWORK ADAPTER Simple Wi-Fi, that's it. That's good enough. The strength did not matter, nor did the speed, since the computer would be placed virtually next to the access point. Wireless access to the internet was the bare minimum and only requirement.
CASE FAN Another fan to accompany the already-included two in the case. Air flow is good.
And, that is my entire build, currently performing more than expected and taking care of the tasks that the church requires without breaking a sweat. Also, I know I may have had not provided much explanation to many of the parts, though some of them doesn't need much in the first place. If you are ever-more curious, by any chance, about why I made these choices, ask away. All feedback is welcome. Just don't be a jerk, and start bad-mouthing these parts just because you have "the right." You can prove your point without melting my feelings, ofrthe computer's thermal solutions. Anyways, I hope you all like this build.
