Total upgrade of Sulaco, I only kept the case, power supply, optical drives and a few extension cards. Sulaco was still working fine but has been powered-on for 3 years and I wanted to upgrade everything before getting a component failure, also I like having new toys.
Cleaning and assembling all the components took me about 6 hours but I got all sorts of problems with the installation of Widows like the failure of the SSD drive master boot for no reason (twice), failure of my hardware raid0, huge CPU latency causing problems with sound and also a few issues with USB drivers. I spent a wholeÂ week fixing everything.
The new system runs on a 4770K (4*3.50GHz overclocked to 4*4.0GHz) with 4*8GB Crucial 1600 RAM, Radeon HD7870, MpowerMax MSI motherboard, system mSata 180 GB SSD and a total of 14TB storage.
