My first desktop PC

December 09, 2018

Have you ever built a desktop PC from the ground up?

I never did until last week, I present you the

“SilentCreator”

This is my first personal desktop pc, I had only laptops. It’s also my first entirely custom pc built on my own.

In the last few months I had been looking at different parts trying to find the best products, all silent but powerful.

I also wanted to have an huge airflow so I focused on having an “open” case with a Dark Cooler Master MasterBox 5.

The main purpose of this machine will be development of EVERYDAYS project that I post on twitter plus being able to render future things with an RTX GPU.

I will also use this computer as my main processing unit for photogrammetry projects cause I don’t to make explode my laptop since it has been running really hot for months while processing photos in photogrammetry softwares.

I don’t want to write each component so just look at my build below.

Showcase of SilentCreator

Future planned upgrades

  • adding one or two Noctua fans in the front of the case
  • adding an SSD of at least 1TB connected to the motherboard
  • buying the incredible Nvidia RTX 2080 Founders Edition
  • adding 2 more rams? Do I really need more than 16GB now?

Update #1 on 02/09/2019
