Very nice looking build! I like the lights and that monitor is glorious! +1
Very nice build! Good Work! I'm planning on building in this case in the near future, and I'm curious about the top mounted radiator support. Judging from your pictures you were able to stuff a pretty beefy radiator up there. Would you say there would be any issues with a top mounted 280mm AIO cooler like a Kraken x62?
+1 for sure.
Great Work! Very clean look with great cable management. +1
Very nice, a great looking first build! +1
Yeah I think the guys I bought it from also had an eBay shop.
I actually built this thing a few months ago, and just now put it on here. At the time there was a large mass exodus of Haswell stuff, and prices were cheap enough that the price/performance was a no-brainer for me. I also had a lot of components carrying over from previous builds, most notably the RAM which would have been that much more money had I decided to go Skylake. I unfortunately won't have an upgrade path with this, but I figured that it will be powerful enough to accommodate the next generation GPU's no problem anyway. Thanks!
Honestly, I don't remember the name of the site. They are based out of Hong Kong, and I got that and the metal Nvidia sticker at the same time. I want to say they were called "ModSticker.com" or something. They are a real nice quality, thin metal, and the Nvidia sticker actually has some fine knurling on it that looks really cool. It was pretty cheap too, I think $7 for both stickers.
Thanks! The fan mount is actually the angled mount that comes with the case. It attaches to the removable drive bays. I never actually planned to use all those bays so I used that bracket and modified it as it is now. And yeah, I took a lot of time with cable management this go around.
Lol yeah. Its a pretty solid chest overall, but i'll hopefully get a proper filing cabinet someday to replace it.
I used to run with led fans but this is a much cleaner look. Thanks!
Beautiful rig Joe!
