I sold my old hardware and arranged a new computer. This time, I didn’t use a water cooling system, the new computer is cooled just via air cooling.

This is the new hardware:

  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
  • Mainboard: Biostar TA890FXE
  • GPU: Sapphire HD5850 Toxic
  • RAM: 2 x 4 GB Mushkin Blackline DDR3-1600 CL9

As I wanted my system to be silent, I decided to use a noise dampened case. Also a new CPU cooler was needed and of course a fan control.

I bought the following components:

  • Noise dampened Lian Li PC-P50 Midi-Tower
  • Thermaltake Venomous X CPU cooler
  • Lamptron FC2 Fan Controller 5,25″ – black

The system works really good and the temperatures are fine, even after a few hours of crunching (BOINC). I haven’t been able to test a lot more yet, but I will do soon.
