a few hours and many removing and installing of fans later:
new case is really a joy to work is but be wary the I/O connectors are on the short side.
back is a mess since no modulair psu might change that around in the future or untill the psu dies.
in two weeks this bad boy will go full custom loop (if evga en EK finally hurry up with releasing stuff in EU )
they admitted that one to be a prop used for evga events only iirc.
i am thinking of just getting a plain black one from evga.
My computer setup, old pc I know. Upgrading soon
CPU: Intel Core2 Duo CPU E7300 2.66GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT (1gb)
RAM: 4gb (dont know what model)
Motherboard: Asus P5KPL/1600
HDD 500gb harddiver (dont know what model)
Screen: Philips (dont know what model) 1920x1200
Keyboard: Razer anansi
Mouse:Logitech MX 518 optical gaming mouse 1800dpi
Headset: Razer Characias
HDD Western Digital 1TB USB 3.0
It manages BF3 on lowest graph + 1920x1080 with around 12 people at 15-25fps so im happy
Wow at medium/high settings in bgs- 40-80fps (and FPS drops at LM when it's a big fight)
Finished my first build a few weeks ago but never got round to putting any pictures up so here goes, be nice :P and yes those front filters do need a clean (dogs + summer = hair storm)
i7 4770k 4.6Ghz @ 1.225v
Corsair H100i with 2x NF-F12s in Pull
Asus z87 Sabertooth
16gb Corsair Vengeance @ 1600mhz
SLI Gigabyte WF 3x 770s (currently at 1181/1833 although there's a lot more room to up the mem clock and a tad more on the core)
Samsung 840 250GB SSD
WD Blue 1TB
Also stumped up for a set of corsair's white cables and replaced all the stock fans with 2x SP120 (currently using as side intakes), 2x AF120 (1 in drive bay, 1 rear exhaust) and a 200mm Spectre PRO down front. Plus ofc I had to put some pretty white LEDs in it.
Still a couple of silly aesthetic things I need to sort out, like getting hold of a black sli bridge and tidying up the cables a bit more but im proper chuffed with how its turned out. Just need to wait till this awful summer heat passes then I'll get the side window back on and push the OCs a bit
Amazing setup mate.
Only thing thats missing is backplates for your GPU though.
Skylake & Maxwell gaming build 2015
6700K 4.7GHz | H100i GTX | Asus Z170 Maximus Viii Gene | Carbide Air 240 | Corsair LPX 16GB | GTX 980 Gaming G1 |
Samsung 850 EVO | Corsair RM750i | Razer BW Chroma - Razer Deathadder Chroma | AOC 24 G-Sync 144Hz |
and he can take the bottom hd tray out if he wanted to. its like 2-4 screws on the bottom, just gotta take the front panel off
Today, instead of pictures, you'll get a video!
Because it is audio-focused, and you can not only see what I got... but also, hear.
Plugged the mic into my ASUS Xonar DX sound card instead of the RealTek because whenever I record with Fraps on a game, I get coil-whine. Okay then.
Basically... here's what game footage would sound like with my voice.
Sounds pretty good, eh?

I got another Acer AL1951 for cheap so I guess it's time for an update.
An Imgur album
- i7 920 @ 3.3GHz
- 3*4Gb DDR3
- GeForce 660 Ti
- OCZ Agility 3 120Gb SSD accompanied by WD Black 1TB HDD and Seagate 4TB.
- Zalman 850W PSU - I was fool to think the trend of increasing power consumption would continue.
- Samsung 245B accompanied by two Acer AL1951's. Television is an old 46" Samsung, probably one of the first 1080p TVs.
- Logitech G15 and Mx518 mouse.
- Yamaha RX-V765 is powering a 5.0 set by OR with AudioPro SubFocus woofer. Or alternatively, Beyerdynamic DT-770 cans.
I just ordered all of my components yesterday, so as they start to trickle in and I get everything put together, I'll try and throw some images up.
CPU - i5 4670K
Mobo - GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H

Also don't understand putting two low-mid range cards in SLI instead of just 1 proper card. Combining the cost of 2 760's and swapping the excessive power supply could've bought you a 780. Shame..
