I've its bigger brother, the Corsair 540 Air Project Winter War. They're really nice to build into, only complaint is the holes in the bottom of the system, under the disk quick release.
Imagine how the person over at Corsair that designed the Air 240/Air 540 feels when s/he see's what beautiful and imaginative and inspirational things you build with them.
Same AIO cooler as mine love that thing the way it pulses like its breathing and the RAM also will pulse when the PC is sleeping! Looks awesome! mine is the Project Winter War one, in a Corsair 540 Air.
That case is beautiful
Oh wow, definitely on the hunt for some, but I'd make it a challenge for you for sure I'm very fussy :P
PROJECT WINTER WAR is my current build, I'd be looking for something to cover the SSD alignment vertically and the hard disk also aligned vertical and it would have to ship to Finland!
So after shipping and import tax the prices would have to be very competitive.
Those custom backplates! They make it. I want them for my own but yet to find any white TUF ones ljke on customgtp's build. This build has pretty much put me over the edge to hunt them down now or get them made for me.
My one , not yours. My own is the Corsair 540 Air Project Winter War a very different beast altogether.
You did well all things considered, mine are also rolled into a ball and bunched up into a corner. Main difference is mine is a cube form factor and behind the motherboard tray, and in a place that won't impact airflow or heat.
I'm just busting your balls. If noone else does you'd just stop there. And that's console peasant talk :P
Clean your room, do your homework, bring out the trash, eat your vegetables, don't talk back, leave your brother alone, cable manage.
:P scared ye!
Ooooooooooooh so now I see why you've been hanging around all the monochrome builds customgtp!
+1 also a little jealous... Jus'a'lil, but it's there :P
Achievements unlocked - level II complete
Current PCMR rank = MASTER
BONUS +1 ADDED
May? I think. When it was finished. Was waiting on things like customs cables and fans
I'm sorry let my new bear near my keyboard, now what were you saying?....
aah yes, until now no :P
Sweet g-buzz that warp on that table is terrifying me.....
Nice build though +1.. I've a real soft spot for the monochrome builds it seems... But godz sake man get a leg or something underneath those triplets! :P
Finland, but customgtp I've answered that question in the comments below, i got mine from the German Amazon site (its free shipping to Finland) but they've got a USA market store now online I think. Its been linked below and they often will have sales on worth checking for you
Funny story, I didn't really know much about them until I had ordered it. Somehow I'd got it in my head it was something to do with palit GPU's?
But all turned out well.
I dun rite gud... :(
Aww shucks, mean alot coming from you ivanooz. Looking forward to see whats next from you, keep up the stellar work buddy!
Thanks for the page visit and dropping a comment. Much appreciated
Thanks, much appreciate those pluses!
Thanks, very pleased with how it turned out, I really love turning up all the fans to100% and listening to those fans whuuuurr n wooosh. See even under load my fan curve won't kick in untill they're 60c so its mostly the only way I get to see them light up :P
Happy birthday! And just in time for the Steam sale! Bonus yay.
Really nice choices you've made, and all your own, every step of the way. And not once did you go with the crowd as so many do/have.
Sometimes having a bear that size handly next to my PC would be great. I could use it for sure to type replies to trolls with them big paws!
I've done the same BrutalDeluxe, and very refreshing when done right. That's mine Project Winter War it's set in the Corsair 540 Air, so just a generation/iteration behind of your case. I do like your taste though, but I couldn't justify having all that power for my single 27" monitor. The single 1070 on my own works just just fine.
Wow, so that's what no RGB PC builds look like....
Nice build! §Now what is a Linus?
I don't mean to alarm you but there's some LEGO mischief goings on in that pretty box with nice lights on in it, you might need to shine a LEGO bat light in the sky to get LEGO batman over to run'm out!
Best if luck
I suppose it's no coincidence that all your power tools match this build too
Any particular reasons for placing the AIO Deepcool 240EX 120 fans that way?
Aww, why no cable combs ivannooz? Some nice red acrylic cable combs would be a nice addition.
Yep, it's the evil version of mine, literally they could do battle for the future of PCMRkind, Project Winter War and good would prevail!
+1 evil twin..... for now...
I got wood, but seriously. Why does everything here look so organic! 1+
Yaaaaay, same cooler as mine. And almost the same RAM, I went with just white RAM. Was no point in putting RGB in mine since it was a monochrome theme (black & white)
Good job +1 lots of room for upgrading!
I used the same case - only complaint is the holes in the bottom.. and if you don't mind me saying... for someone that's using this for photos you sure don't have many of them ☺️
This is functional art, nothing less. This should be hanging in a gallery not an apartment (as tastefully decorated as it is), more people need to see how beautiful this is outside of the PC enthusiast world.
Inspiring very inspiring.
Wonderful post, and great use of parts and tastefully placed use if colours I'd +1 it more than once if I could.
SOLD to the gentleman with the beer pong hat!
Doesn't the EL wire fade pretty quickly? There must be a more permanent solution with similar effect, I had thought of something like the so called tron tape or reflective vinyl wrap that's used on emergency vehicles. It would be a more permanent solution.... But Would then require another light source to make it pop.
Clear acrylic also with the tron tape along its base with some reasonably powerful led at each end would also work and could also be in someway hooked into the others RGB LED'S. that's another permanent solution but would take more work but would be more customisable.
reflective-vinyl is one source.
Anyways jus my own thoughts, but great find. Very inspiring +1
give http://galaxstore.net/ a try
perfect, just perfect. first time I've seen HOF RAM in the wild. really nice. +1
Thanks, the cables I had made for me from the guys over at MOD-ONE and the HOF graphics card was ordered from Amazon in Germany but under their European brand name KFA2 KFA2 GTX 1070 Hall of Fame I hope that's of some help to you, they are not that easy to get in the EU and I've heard even harder to get in the US. Let me know if you need anymore info, I'm very happy to help.
we all want this right? I so badly want this...
I really liked this case too, but went with a 540 Air instead better ecstatic for me build Project Winter War , but my next build you've definitely convinced me to go with the 740 Air, want to build a Kett themed build (bad guy from Mass Effect) so a military olive on the outside and perhaps something really over bright on the inside like an orange or yellow.
so op success you've inspired! T'is what's pcpartpicker is for, no?
I voted up for the name alone *tips hat @Mrjrnotch
What voodoo is this! HOF on its back! You Sir are maniacal genius!!
It's like the evil lost brother of my own HOF Build . all needs is dark rimed classes and poorly placed mustache!
You've even got the same vibe with less pic's like some cliff hanger ... UNTIL NEXT TIME on HOF BUILDS!
You're absolutely right, I apologise for my error, they are of course as you say they are. Nice job.
I love how you recycled the fans from Deepcool - CAPTAIN 240EX WHITE AIO for the bottom, but they're less effective on the bottom pulling air out at the case, might get better temps if you reverse them to pull the ambient air into the case?
I use the same CPU AIO cooler in my own Project Winter War so far so good, and it doesn't get nearly as much credit for just how easy it is to install.
Hope you add more pics!
Uhttp://www.carwrapdirect.com/reflective-white is the stuff I've my eye on, its used alot on work/emergency services vehicles. I think it would look really nice on the inside of my build here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/HnTBD3 I jus got done adding Corsair mag-lev white LED fans to my one this week, and with the other lights I think the reflective vynil would really shine there - like Tron in a box.
Also gave you a sub, keep up the work. As long as you have the enthusiasm and passion it will show through the lens in those vids and bring a lil joy to many. Don't be afraid to innovate - don't just think outside the box as far as the content is concerned, but live outside it!
Really lovely, I've a 540 also the only pain with it is the open floor below the drive slides below the motherboard. Other than that I love the thing. Might try and vynil wrap the inside of mine with some white reflective wrap to pop in the lights.
But that aside really nice work.
not to alarm you but it looks like you've not removed the scratch wrap off that motherboard?
shouldn't do any damage if you forgot too, but the glue might discolour those parts when it cooks off, not to mention what would happen if the wrap heats up falls off n gets pulled into a fan, it's a heart attack inducing sound.
I have to admit, the Deepcool CAPTAIN 240 EX AIO was one of the easiest things to install on my own rig, I don't think they get enough credit for how innovative and simple it is to install.
Did you plug yours into the CPU fan header or did you use the W-PUMP header on the Z170 S?
