[Build Log] CubanBeast

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
CubanBeast


Welcome to my Build Log! I didn't do this to my older builds, so I'm going to do it for this one! This new build will retire Cuban Silo, which was a great system but a bit long in the tooth. I will be reusing some drives and the nVIDIA graphics card from Cuban Silo, but everything else will be bought (most of the items bought used from this very forum, support OCN sellers!).

Info: With this build I am aiming for a blue/black color scheme. That's why certain components were bought with these colors in mind when possible. The computer case is a custom modded powdercoated case by Lutr0.

Note: I apologize for the images I will take. I am not good at taking images and I will be using my phone's camera. I will try my best to make sure they're clear and look great.

No, Linux only. I may do Wine though, if I really need to. I also have Windows in a VM, so as to not forget commands and such, since I do IT for work. biggrin.gif
