ModSynergy Test PC Build


ModSynergy officially has cleared out the old trusty test system because it is time to showcase current technology. Time to move forward with a new PC build that is being built with the help various sponsors as listed below. You can expect all new future reviews to be run on this system and once the build is complete, full specifications and pictures will be posted here.

Update: I know it’s strange to be introducing our new 2011-2012 ModSynergy Test PC with almost two months left before the year ends, but this is the way things have unfolded, and I’m glad that it’s finally completed.  

First of all I would like to thank all of the sponsors involved in making this possible, as without the help of these companies, none of this would be possible!  I want to thank the following companies for their support and belief in this project.

Intel Corporation


Crucial Memory

Sapphire Technology Limited



Patriot Memory

The mission was to build a computer system that would be comprised of the newest and latest innovative technology, a system that would be used for all future reviews and tests, a system that looks beyond and can last for future generations, a system that reflects my thoughts on what is possible today, a system that is attainable for the average individual, a system that is diverse and adaptable to many different mediums (be it gaming, professional graphics, professional audiophile) and just an all-around great system with components that I could support and recommend to friends.   This system that has been built is just that, and more.  It’s a system that embodies style, elegance, function over form and something that screams quality.

Here is a breakdown of the components that make up this current ModSynergy Test PC...
