    Vishera Desktop PC

      Description

      Built last year as a replacement of old PC with Athlon 64 3500+ and Radeon X1950Pro.

      P.S.: Sorry for stupid cable management, there is a lot of cables and little of chances to hide them (the Zalman Z3 case has good air-flow and is relatively good in quality/price ratio, but their cable management is horrible). I plan to buy a new PSU (with modular cables, so it will be much much better) in a near future.

      A small note: I will make a better photos, when I will have a little free time.

       

      EDIT 14.5.2016 - Because my 500 GB WD was so tight, I bought new HDD drive - Toshiba P300 3 TB, which is rebranded Hitachi Deskstar.

      EDIT 6.8.2016 - Because my previous PSU  (Seasonic SS-500ET-F3) failed, I replaced it with Corsair RM550x.

                  Oh... my previous rig what I had before my Q9300 was a AMD Athlon 64 Venice. Even as only a single core, it was a good CPU imho. I like of your setup. Are you happy with your SilentiumPC? Been reading bout those lately cause been wondering of changing my Antec if I decide to update my old comp soon. So far I´ve heard just good feedback of em.

                      I built another similar config (FX-8350, R9 270X) last year for a friend, and he wanted AC Freezer 13 as a cooler. If I can compare Freezer 13 and Fera 2, I recommend Fera 2. Fera 2 uses standard 120mm fans, when AC needs special one with special clips to pin it to cooler. Freezer also has only one side for assembly on AM3+, fan flow is from down to up (so if you don't have fans on top side of case, you will have worse airflow), Fera 2 has one assembly side too, but from right to left, and you can add one more fan to it (as I have on photos). Temperatures are the same, Freezer has a thermal compound applied from a factory (MX-4 I think), Fera has one included (but I used AC MX-2, then their Pactum). Here in the Czech Republic was prices moreless the same, but Fera 2 has better quality/price ratio.

                    Nice! Looks like you have a bit of spaghetti going on there... lord knows I've had that going on in some of my previous PC's. Non-modular power supplies can make it difficult. It does look like the Zalman Z3 motherboard tray had some room for cable management behind it, so I bet you could improve airflow/aesthetics a bit with a little time/patience.

                      If anyone want some photos from unpacking SilentiumPC Fera2 CPU cooler, I have uploaded them on OneDrive:

                          That´s a very cool looking cooler. Thank you very much. Now I just need to try to make a decision between Cryorig, Noctua and SilentiumPC... sigh... I´m lousy at making this sort of decisions. -.-

                              I don't like making desicions, so I find a few candidates in some price interval and then I check quality/price ratio, but sometimes I take the most cheap candidate and if I am not satisfied I return it to seller in 14days interval (this is super here in Czech Republic).

                              Last week I was looking for a relatively good headset with reasonable price. Then I tried Zalman ZM-HPS300 headset, price was about 12€, and I was surprised! The sound is very good for that price. I can recommend it.
