Vintage Alienware Predator rebuild


Recommended Posts

Holy smokes its me again.

 

 

So I bought an old school Alienware Predator case on the cheap and wanted to throw my current rig in it for pure nostalgia purposes. 

 

For those that don't know, these PCs were the BEES KNEES back in 02-05 and was my dream PC. So bought a case on ebay for 200 bucks that looked in decent shape to start.

 

Equipment -

CPU- AMD 5800x 3.8ghz

GPU - AMD 6900XT 16gb

RAM - G Skill 32gb 3600mhz 

HD - Seagate Firecuda 1TB m.2

Motherboard - ASRock Tiachi x570

Watercooler - AIO 360 radiator

(6) 120mm EZDIY rgb fans

Monitor - Samsung 49" Odyssey G9

Speakers - Klipsch RP15 with a 10" Klipsch subwoofer

 

 

 

First had to take it all apart and start sanding for new paint.

 

 

What it looked like when I got it, Plasma purple in somewhat decent shape, lots of scratches.

Top notch wire management! 😛

 

I had no idea until I was putting it together that there is no space behind the mobo like almost all new cases now days for cable management since the panel sits flat against the mobo panel. I even tried to run my thin fan cables behind and the panel wouldnt close. lol so no cable management possible in this thing.
