Project-X: Building a new Guru3D.com test PC

Posted on Tuesday, December 30 2008 @ 04:21:06 CET by

Intel's X58 as you guys know can support both SLI and Crossfire, allowing one PC to test both, and for a reviewer that's pretty wicked really as we do not have to build multiple similar configured systems.

One to rule them all. We figured, let's make a new system and go a little crazy. So the guys over at Smooth Creations decided to help us out by taking care of a custom paintjob. I wanted, blue Guru3D colored flames with our logo stamped in there, with a black coating.

Here's what the Guru3D.com test-platform will look like for the reviews in 2009.
  • Chassis - Silverstone Temjin TJ-10 aluminum
  • Motherboard - ASUS X58 Rampage II Extreme ROG
  • Intel Core i7 965 @ 3750 MHz
  • Memory - OCZ DDR3 6 GB 1600 MHz 9:9:9:24
  • PSU - 1200 Watt
  • 3x HDD (one OS for ATI, one OS for NVIDIA, one 64-bit generic PC testing)
  • 1x Optical drive
  • You can check it out at Guru3D.
