The Menace Phantom - Fluid change time

post #1 of 117
Thread Starter 
Welcome to my first ever build log!

Ever since I joined this forum in April its inspired me to get back into computers and start building again. I started with a very simple build and its been evolving ever since! This as been a huge learning experiance and taken lots of trial and error before I really found the parts that I like. Thanks to this forum and its wealth of knowledge, if it wasnt for you this build wouldnt of happened.


Don't hesitate to comment! thumb.gif

I know some of these parts arnt in these pictures and I promise I will be updating the photos as I can. But from looking at the pics you can see I've gone through multiple PSU's, Graphics Cards, Cases, HDDs, and Ram. So if I was to make a list of all of the parts from all the evolution's of this build it would be too long.

So Enough with the talk, here's the pictures!!

The Original Case and Setup aka where it all started







The Current setup!

Interior







All pretty and lit up, I'm very proud.

Nice build. Get anything except the MK-1, that case doesn't look as good as the pictures in real life so you're better off with the other options. The Z9 isn't half bad tho.

Yeah, the Z9 isnt too bad, I just want more space to play around with now. Also a little better cable management, usb 3.0 and better cooling.

On another note. My benchmarks are in

My Old 6950

3DMark11 Got a P7228 WITH Virtu MVP enabled.

The New 7950
3DMark11 Got a P10925 and a 11791 Graphics Score @ 1250/1950 and 1300mV (Driver 12.11 Beta)


PCMARK 7 - 6003


Cinebench CPU R11.5 - 7.41pts / CPU @ 4.5ghz

Case looks pretty nice..I was going to suggest elite 410..but it's a done deal biggrin.gif
Other than that..best thing about the build is that thing that says "Sapphire" and the PSU.
(2 very important components,IMO) thumb.gif

I would LOVE a NZXT case but sadly I cant find any here in Japan, and I don't feel like having it sent here for fear of it being damaged inroute. I'll just have to wait until I get back to the states for that. The cases I listed are cases I can get locally for sure. But if I had it my way, I would have a switch 810. I love that case.

As far as my components go. I plan on switching my ram very soon, then my monitor is my next upgrade followed by the case....maybe viceversa.

EDIT: I found a NZXT Phantom!!!

Update! Some new parts thrown on my build it consists of the following!

-Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb ram 1600mhz
-Antec Khuler 620 with custom dual fan setup. (max temp at 4.7ghz is 72C) Edit: Sold and replaced with a H80
-New Seagate Barracuda 1TB single platter HDD
-3 Gelid silent fans added to the case.

P5161136.jpg

Nuff talk, MOAR PICS!

Here you can see two of the Gelids I added to the side panel, the last is bottom mounted next to the PSU.

P5161139.jpg

Here's a few shots of the inside, you can see just how small a 1tb platter hard drive is compared to an older 3.5in drive! My antec 620 is pulling ambient air in and I have a top mounted 120mm fan exhausting the air. All other fans are intakes.

P5161141.jpg

P5161142.jpg

P5161144-1.jpg

I will be re updating my benches soon! If all is stable I'll clean the interior a little bit more and call it a day!

As always please comment!
