post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

soon i'm gonna upgrade my whole system..
the RIG in my sig will be sold for 850 euro's , which I allready got a buyer for.

Anyyyywayyy,
Specs of new system :



CPU: AMD Black Edition AMD FX 8150 / 3.6 GHz processor [8-core]
CPU cooling : Corsair H100 watercooling
Mobo : ASUS Crosshair V Formula Republic of Gamers [not the Thunderbolt one, it's just too expensive]
GPU : MSI HD7970 Twin Frozr III [1x]
RAM : not sure yet, hesitating between G.Skill ripjaws & Dominator sticks.
HDD : 2TB HDD & 120GB SSD from Intel 520 series
Cables :Bitfenix White PSU Cables



I'm thinking of getting this Aerocool Strike-X Advance White Edition case :

I'm going to remove all the stock fans.
replacing them with BitFenix Spectre Pro Red LED fans
450

And i'm going to get the OCZ Fatal1ty 750w Red LED PSU [1000w is just overkill for me




I really need some advice to make this case look like a killer biggrin.gif
I've never modded a case before, So i'm going to try & look-up some tutorials for led replacements..
wanna replace the front blue LED's to red also

Of course it can be done tongue.gif

You just need the right bit to cut through without melting the plastic as well as a pattern/grid to use as a template for the holes smile.gif

since i've never done it before, i think i'll fail several times first XD

I've always wanted to try 2 things with modding.

Cutting my own acrylic parts for my sytem
and making a watercooled build (expensive tho)

Post an update bro! I want to see how this came out, I'm planning on using those same fans in my Strike X St Black Edition. Seems that Aerocool gets a bad rep I want to see if we can change that around as they do make some sick looking cases.
