12,000 with ssd and overclocked is a bit low, with some tweaking I think you can improve your score. I do not like lots of light but this is a great machine.

@ redrat76 thanks for your comment .christine just evolved over 4 years the only plan was to keep the smooth lines of the case which i think I've managed to do

i have got two switches so i can turn all the lights off case lights or res lights. or both i have just installed a pci sata card and the nova bench mark for the ssd write speed is 306 MBS

AJA System test is showing write 328.4 MBs Read 299.9 thats with web site page open and yes i think its a bit low for the specs i have. but i click the mouse and its instant responce so I'm Happy i will never be using the full potential of the pc its just a hobby for me. that took longer to finish than i expected lol

For sure this setting is already enough to work with Adobe suite and play good games too.


Sometimes I think about buying a ssd and a watercooler to give a boost on my computer but I think it already has an optimal performance and works very well for what I need.

well i think a computer is a personal thing as soon as you take it out of the store and turn it on you change thing to suite your self

I've gone a bit over the top for my needs. but i like the mechanics of water-cooling and the getting things to fit stage best
