Build Log [Cool Blue]

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been a lurker on these boards for awile. Finally decided to join and post my build log.

Ok, so I finally decided to breakdown and build a new PC case.

I'll put up a few pictures here for you guys.

Specs:

ASRock 770 extreme3 Motherboard
AMD Phenom II 555 BE X2 (Unlocked to Quad core B55 X4, and slight Overclock)
Coolermaster Hyper 212+ Evo CPU Cooler
Gskills 8 GB Ripjaws X DDR3 1600 Ram
EVGA GeForce GTX 550Ti (factory overclock model) 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E 2.1
Antec 550 Basiq Modular Power Supply
Mushkin Sata III 60 GB Boot Drive (Win7 Home Professional to Save some space)
Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 7200 RPM Storage Drive
Samsung DVD/CD Burner/Reader
Coolermaster HAF 922 BLUE Case
NZXT Black Sleaved LED light string (blue 12 bulb)
120mm Coolmaster Sickleflow Case Fan (blue)


The Plan:

Take this cool looking case, paint the inside Ford Engine Blue and use a black Sleaving kit from FrozenCPU.com to coverup and dress all my wires. Then build it out with the new lights and parts.

The Cost:

New Case $89.99
New Cooler $34.99
New SSD Drive $69.99
Sleave Kit plus Some Extensions for wiring $55.99
LED kit $13.97
Paint $6.99
Primer $4.99
My old parts.. God only knows XD biggrin.gif
20+ hours of my time.. Nothing, this is mah hobby

After unscrewing and unplugging and drilling rivets out I have it down to a shell.

Here are some views of the frame.

Hope you Enjoy...

Yeah, keeps it at 30 C on idle... Saw it as high as 46 C when i had SWTOR, WOW, Guildwars and 10+ web pages open.

I will be using it from now on. 2 things, get a Phillips #2 screwdriver with a 8 inch shank so you can screw the screws in at a straight line. And get the 212+Evo as the mounting bracket allows for all your ram slots to be filled.

FYI.. This case is getting a major overhaul after I finish [Black Box]. My first water cooled build will be [Cool Blue Redo] XD
