|Building the Perfect Computer⁠

This blog post is part of a series on my experience building my perfect computer. As part of my job at Member.buzz, I needed a high-performance computer for programming, graphic design, and video rendering. I also wanted it to look the part; looking as beautiful on the outside as it is in the inside.

Before we get to far, here is a video showing the result:

Through the process, I did a lot of research and found answers to some obscure prolems. I hope that some of the information I found can help others as they go through their journey.

My overall goal was to build a top-of-the-line custom computer while ensuring that it would be reliable enough to use as my everyday work computer (although I deviated a bit from the reliability requirement with my custom water-cooling solution).


I have separated all of my research into the following series of articles:

An overview of how I choose the components for my computer.

A review of the different types of lighting options available.

An overview of maximizing the performance from your computer.

Air Cooling
How to choose the right fans.

Water Cooling, Part 1
Choosing the type of water cooling to use.

Water Cooling, Part 2
Creating a custom water cooling loop.

Cable Management
How to keep your cables out of sight.

How to bring your computer to the next level through custom modifications.

Information on various tools used.

Brands and Retailers
A list of the different brands, with reviews on which ones are best.


Here is an overview of my build, you can see details about why I choose each component in the relevant articles above.

Using a Lenovo P51 Laptop with an Airplane Power Supply
The Lenovo P51 Laptop comes with a huge 170 watt Power Supply. However, airplane power supplies provide a maximum of somewhere between 75-100 watts. If you plugin a power supply requiring more watts, the circuit breaker will short out and the power will stop flowing.
Turning Atlassian JIRA into a CRM
Here at Member.buzz, we use Atlassian JIRA to track our features, bugs, and incoming requests from users through our Support Site. So when it came to choosing a CRM, we wanted to find one that integrated nicely with the rest of our infrastructure.Our first thought was to try out some of the existing JIRA CRM plugins. Here are the ones we tried out:CRM for JIRAAtlas CRMKanoah CRMAlthough there were definitely some interesting features among these options, there was nothing substantial enough to make us want to choose a specific one. We wanted something simple, yet well-integrated into what we already had
C-Level Security: When your team uses military analogies, are they using the wrong narrative?
For years, I have bristled when people would use medieval military descriptions in an attempt to convey concepts within the Network Security business. Bastions, Firewalls, Moats, Drawbridges, Countermeasures; all of these descriptions give way to a more accurate and detailed explanation of what was really taking place.
