Just some eye candy for now. I'm currently at 4.0ghz on an i7 2600k running prime 95 at 38c.

It is after a pint of Tequila. Please do excuse the nonsense.

I'm planning on doing a build nearly identical to this (in looks not specs) pretty soon biggrin.gif

I love the white and black theme.

I swear I've seen a rig just like that before...



Just kidding, looks great! Love the black and white. I still have my Mini in the closet from when I took mine apart, I might use it again some day. Excellent little case for the money.

Haha, strikingly similar ehhh? I had been planning this build since I first laid eyes on a review of the arc mini and was scouring the web for 2 x 120mm rads that would fit. I came close to throwing the 580 classifieds in and going socket 2011 as well but I sold them for a good price to fund a few other projects. I play a lot of CS and TF2 so the 2600k 7990 is more than enough at 2560 x 1440.

Yeah, its nice to see someone else look at that case and immediately think to fit a bunch of radiators. What kind of temps are you getting?

What radiators and fans are you using?

I'm using (2) Black Ice II radiators and may be installing another black ice pro in a few months. The radiator in the front of the case has pressure from the drive cage but fits well without an mounting devices. I could take a Dremel to the lower drive cage but pressure makes it fit just fine. Let me know if you are having doubts about the build. I completed mine with sleeved cable and all in less than 24 hours with plenty of caffeine...

Nice! Love the white tubes and cabling in line with the fractal sceme. I also swear i've seen a rig similar to this before. Of course, I very blatantly copied from mr Scorpion49 biggrin.gif Red was to match with the Gene-Z of course.

Does that radiator allow the front pull fans to be screwed into it? With my XSPC I had to screw them into the front panel because they didn't line up, but no biggie.

Get some more rads in there thumb.gif
