PC upgraded, finally

Core 2 Quad Q6600 -> Core i5 2500, 4G DDR -> 8G DDR3, WD RAID edition HDD -> Intel Series 510 SSD, Lian Li 8 years old chassis -> Cooler Master Silencio 550 chassis.

Cost quite a bit, but the boot time is simply excellent.


Added 2 Zalman ZM-SF3 120mm fans to the chassis to increase ventilation.

The CPU cooler hasn’t been upgraded yet, but the noise level is well below the ambient noise (from the surroundings).

Still researching on quiet and relatively small coolers, targets include Notua NH-C12P SE14 and Coolermaster GeminII S524 (much cheaper).
