well, shirohiro 1.0 is currently 5.5 years old. From 2007 Jan – 2012 Jan, and with my brilliant deduction that 1 computer year = 20 human years.. shirohiro is a centenarian!
Time for a change.
- Her parts are all creaky
- She tends to run into bad sectors that just kills the entire OS (meaning I have to hard reboot just to use it again)
- Lags like crazy (having *upgraded* from Windows XP SP3 to Fedora 15!)
- Speakers which are completely gone (crackling sounds, anyone? Must’ve driven the sound driver insane until it spoiled)
So here’s what I’ve decided on – this time, shirohiro 2.0 will be a desktop. A mini desktop, nonetheless, but a desktop powerful enough by today’s standards. A facelift, because you deserve it! =)
Phase 1: The main parts and necessary components (including monitor, cause I don’t have one!)
Casing: SilverstoneTek SG06
Motherboard: AsusTek Z77E-ITX
CPU: Ivy Bridge i5-3570K
RAM: 2x4GB DDR3 RAM
HDD: 128GB SSD + 2TB SATA III
Phase 2: The pretty parts, not completely necessary but I WILL GET THEM because I only build a box once in a lifetime.. rest of the time I’ll just be upgrading parts.
Cooling system: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo
Keyboard: WASD V1 Semi-Custom Keyboard with Cherry Blue switches
And I guess, that’s it for now :3 Project will start prolly late August. See how my financials go. =P
