HotHardware's Two and a Half Geeks Special: Corsair "Back to School" System Build

In this special episode of HotHardware’s Two and Half Geeks webcast, Marco takes us through a system build of a killer new Gaming PC built with top-notch Corsair components that we'll be giving away to our lucky “Back to School” contest winner JOMA!


A couple of episodes back, I (Marco) said that I was so jazzed to assemble this system that I promised it would be the cleanest one I’ve built yet. I’m happy to report that I pulled it off (at least I think I did!). Assembling a group of parts that were all designed to work together definitely makes the process much easier. Kudos to Corsair for putting the effort in to design components that cater so well to the enthusiast / DIY crowd.

Those Corsair cases are sweet the wire management gate/pull through on the board and everything are just awesome and the have a lot of clear room for airflow.

Woo Boy ! that sure is one very sweet and super clean looking build, That Corsair chassis in the gunmetal grey sure looks awesome and think it would be suitable in a lot of environments, yep those Corsair Mem sticks are definitely some beefy ram modules and no doubt the primo- excellento cable management wiring on the back is an inspiration for any enthusiast.

Great build video and Enjoy the new rig JOMA! Smile

The mouse, headset, and keyboard are like icing on the cake.

The computer looks awesome ( love the look of the to ram, haven't seen those before).

Now that is sexy! Congrats again JOMA. That new gunmetal color is very slick. I have to say if you were to buy anything, you should buy one of the nzxt sleeved cable extensions for the 24 pin connector. Great work Marco!

"somewhat of a challenge to make the cables look neat"??? and "what the heck are we going to do with all that"? Haha, Ya right Marco, you are the KING at clean cable management. I'm hoping you will post a video of how you manage to do it EVERY time, no matter what kind of case you are working with. I know with my mild ocd I'll need a vid to follow when and if I ever get to do my first build! I'll want my cables nice and tight like yours for sure. (ok that sounded wrong LOL)

 

Thanks for the vid! JOMA sure is lucky to have a build by you and with Corsair parts is just the icing on the cake!

Sure like the  way that back wiring turned out..  a prime example of taking a lot of attention to details and taking the time and care to do so.
Excellent Work !

Well the system has arrived. It was a painful process waiting for UPS but they finally made it here. Took a few pics of the epic, epic loot.

Thanks so much to Corsair for all the gear, HotHardware for the contest and Marco for all the work he did on this impressive build. It's simply amazing.
