[Build Log] Return of the Sith

post #1 of 188
Thread Starter 
Company
This will be the first major build of my company -- The Damned PC's -- So, personally, I'm really looking forward to showcasing what we can do...I have several interns that will be helping me with the build along with several others I'm consulting with/contracting -- Looking forward to working with everyone!

178

Case
Case-Labs STH10

Concept
The idea for the build actually came from Bioware -- We were sitting around having a conference and all of the sudden, an ultra custom case idea popped in -- There have been a few Star Wars cases over the years, the most notable from Darth Beavis (He's actually consulting for us, atm) and overall, we really just wanted to be blown away.

I haven't seen a case in a while (Other than the Tron Bike Case) that really just blew me away (Beavis's is really nice, too) so, we wanted to do something, really custom and really special...

Also working with a special effects guy to really "do it up" so, it will look very realistic and cool.

Case Layup
Right now, the case will house 4 radiators and a total of about 26-30 fans...2 Monsoons and a bunch of other fun, fun stuff.

A "lightsaber" will be housed inside the case, itself ~ I don't think anyone has even had a saber housed in their case yet, so this will be a front on 2 levels.

The Saber is being made custom by Mr. Jeff Park -- We are very excited to see what he has come up with...It will be a 1 of a kind saber to go with a 1 of a kind custom case...Mr. Park is a really cool guy to work with and he's consulting some-what with us as well.

The case, itself will be completely custom wired, start to finish...Including the fans, etc.

Parts:

Case:
CaseLabs STH10

Water cooling parts:
XSPC EX480
XSPC RX480
XSPC EX360
XSPC RX360
2x Swiftech 655 Var B's
Mayhem Dyes
2x Danger Den Monsoons
Bitspower compression 3/8 ID x 1/2 OD - about 20-30 fittings.

Watercool Heatkiller 680 blocks x3
Warercool Heatkiller Rev 3 NI-BL CPU Block

Parts:
EVGA Classified Z77
I7 3770k OC'd to 4.5ghz
3x EVGA GTX 380 SC's
16gb Gskill
2x Intel 510 SSD's 120gb Raid
1x WD Caviar black 1tb
1x Intel 2-series 80gb SSD

Now, I've had several people already ask if this case is/will be for sale -- For the time being, no. ~ The saber itself, cost more than the case and the asking price, including the delivery system, would be unreal...HOWEVER, if after this build there is interest for a similar version including a saber or not, that MAY be possible.

Thanks much and I enjoy showing you all what we're capable of.

To answer the questions I've already received about the "lightsaber" ~ I'll answer them publicly.

Yes, I am having a saber built for this case. ~ It will be housed inside the case and will be "handed" to the user when he/she pushes a button -- I'm not saying more, the devil is in the details.

Jeff Park is an icon in the "Jedi" world and came HIGHLY recommended.

He is a very easy/great man to work with; in speaking to him VIA the phone he answered all of my questions and the custom saber that comes out of this collaboration will be amazing.

Is the website, his prices are extremely reasonable as well.

There is a long lead-time so those of you that purchase them, please expect to wait 3-4 months for the saber, alone.
