NAME THIS PROJECT...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have been looking for the perfect case, but i have yet to find one. (well i like the case labs m8, but i think 400+ dollars for a case is ridiculous). I started looking through all the desk builds and really liked what i saw. i think i am going to remove everything out of my XSPC H1 case, and customize my Glass Sauder Desk.

Going into my Sauder i was thinking of doing this:


Maximus IV Extreme B3
2600k @ 5.1ghz @ 1.5
16Gb 1866 Cl9 Ripjaw
EGVA 580 X 3 (waiing for single backplates to replace doubles)
Titanuim HD
60Gb Agility 2
2 x 500gb Seagates
1 x 1tb Seagate
24x Samsung Burner
Corsair 1200AX

Xspc Raystorm (Red)
Xspc Razor 580 Block X 3
Xspc Compression Fittings
Swiftech 655 Vario X 2
EK Top Rev 2 X 2
Phobya Extreme Nova 1080
4 180mm Phobya G 18 Fans (Intake)
1 120mm Yate Loon HS Exhaust
4 X 180 Phobya Grill
Phobya 4 Channel Controller
Ek Advanced Tube Resovoir

"True Red" CFL Lights
Bitfenix Cables Red

Black Glass Sauder Desk

VE278Q
Razer BWU Keyboard
Razer Mamba G1 Mouse
Audio Technica A700
Xbox 360 Wireless Kit



NOT USING ANYMORE...

Xspc H1 Case
360 G.2 Phobya Rad
360 Switchtech SLim Rad
240 Switchtech SLim Rad
3 Enermax Cluster White Fans
9 Xigatek Octane white Fans
Xsoc Single bay res
swiftech Rev2 REs
Apogee XT CPU Block
Xspc Compression Fittings
brass elbows.


i already measured everything out... everything should fit smile.gif

with 18 120mm fans, my xspc is kind of loud. the 1080 rad is has more surface area than the 2 360s & 1 240 put together + the 180mm fans are much quieter... im going to have a total of 6 fans vs 18... that's win already.

i was thinking of removing the file drawers and making a nice setup. the case will be completely sealed except for the 4 180mm intake fans and the 2 120 exhaust fans for positive pressure.

any ideas, comments or recommendations?

so i went out to Micro-Center and bought some cheap case that was on clearance... just had to make sure EATX would fit and that it was black. $21 smile.gif got home and i de-riveted the case. only thing i will be using from it is the hdd cage, 5.25 cage and the MB tray.
