ModSynergy Test PC Build


ModSynergy has recently made the decision to retire its trusted old test system in order to showcase the latest advancements in technology. A new PC build is currently underway, thanks to the support of various sponsors listed below. All future reviews on ModSynergy will be conducted on this new system, and once the build is finalized, comprehensive specifications and accompanying images will be shared on the website.

Update: Although it may seem unusual to introduce our new 2011-2012 ModSynergy Test PC with nearly two months remaining in the year, circumstances have unfolded in this manner, and I am pleased to announce its completion.

First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude to all the sponsors who have played a crucial role in making this project possible. Without the support and belief of these companies, none of this would have been achievable. I extend my sincere thanks to the following companies for their unwavering support in this endeavor.

Intel Corporation


Crucial Memory

Sapphire Technology Limited



Patriot Memory

The objective was to construct a computer system utilizing the most cutting-edge and innovative technologies available. This system would serve as the foundation for all future reviews and tests, designed to transcend current standards and endure for generations to come. It was crucial that the system embodied my vision of what is achievable in today's world while remaining accessible to the average individual. Additionally, it needed to be versatile and adaptable, catering to various mediums such as gaming, professional graphics, and high-fidelity audio. Ultimately, I aimed to create an exceptional system with components that I could wholeheartedly endorse and recommend to friends. The resulting system surpasses these goals, combining style, sophistication, and functionality while prioritizing quality.

Without further ado, let's delve into the components that comprise the current ModSynergy Test PC:
