Project 3470

2012 July - 06

It’s been nearly 3 years after the completion of my current PC – Project 955. It went through quite a number of updates, like the most recent SSD and GPU update. But that PC is one hell of heavy bastard. The case itself weights about 10KG, haven’t include the internal components leh.

I’m saying so because my PC travels with me occasionally since I’m still a university student. Luckily I didn’t choose to go for full tower last time. You know, I was pretty hot blooded in custom PC and hardware stuff back then.

So, With the death of my home’s old Pentium D PC, I decide to replace it with Project 955 while building a new PC for myself – Project 3470.

current Project 955 specs:

AMD Phenon x4 955 Black Edition
Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3
Kingston 1333MHz DDR3 2GB x 2
SAPPHIRE HD6950 1GB
Creative XtremeMusic EMU20K1
Crucial M4 128GB
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB x 2
Gigabyte Odin Pro 550W
Lancool PC-K62
Samsung DVD-ROM

Of course I’ll keep components like the SSD and GPU for Project 3470. The only change will be the core hardware like the CPU and motherboard. But the most crucial change for this project would be switching from ATX mid-tower to microATX mini-tower.

For the time being, I’ll just wait for the new components to arrive.
