At the end of 2014 I decided to build me a pc that is too much overkill for me. Then in January I get all the parts I need for the PC build. I decided long what components i should use, because I had no Know-How.
I was very surprised how fast a custom PC could be built. It took me about 5 hours of building time.
At first i had ordered two Western Digital Green 1,5TB but then a week after I had finished my PC my selfmade Homeserver died. So I bought a Zyxel NSA325 v2. The Problem was that this NAS has only 2 Bays. So I decided to swap the two WD Green 1,5TB drives out of my PC and put them into the Zyxel NSA325 v2. Now I have the three Drives from my died Homeserver in my PC. These three drives are Seagate Pipeline HD 1TB.
The Graphiccard was my hardest decision because I had no idea how much graphic power I need. Now I am very surprised with the power of the Gigabyte R9 280 Windforce. This card is amazing. The power you get for 200€ is amazing. I think I coud have make no better decision. If there is interest, there are some Valley Benchmark Scores.

GPU overclocked with MSI Afterburner: Core Clock 1150MHz Temps. under load around 60°C Memory Clock 1350MHz CPU Overclock: Multipler 24, Clock 200MHz => 8x4,8GHz Temps. under load around 35°C
I think that is enough to konw about my Setup. ;)
This Processor is great for overclocking but if you overclock it from 4,2 to 4,8 or 5.0 GHz you need a good cooling solution because it heats very much.
This cooling solution is not the best, but it is very good. It keeps my overclocked FX 8350 @4.8GHz on 35°C with 70% fanspeed. The only critic point is that sometimes you hear the pump and that there are very much vibrations if the fans spin at 100%.
This is the best MoBo i have ever had. It looks so sexy and the Features are awsome. It holds the voltage so constant. the only bad thing i have to say is about the audio quality. It is not Eargasm. I think it comes, that the audio pcb is not isolated from the other pcb. but only my thought.
This drive is very silent and very fast. Transferspeeds about 120MB/s read and 90-100MB/s write.
Oh my God. This is a Midi Tower with so much room for everything you want to do. It is so solid, because it is fully made of steel and with the two handles you could carry your pc around with you. My setup weight about 20kg and the handles are still going to be stable. So it is a good case with mounting options for 7 Fans and up to 6 drives.
All I can say about it is NOCTUA. Noctua is silent and efficient. At 900RPM you are not able to hear them. These fans keep my komponents nice and cool. Thumbs up for Noctua. Austria For the win
Best Fan i have ever had. RPM up to 3000 for the best cooling. and down to about 1600 with voltage regulation and to 700 with PWM. So when i turns with about 700rpm it is almostsilent for me. but this is a subjectiv opinion, keep that in mind.
