Hello everyone,

I have been a forum reader for sometime, but never posted anything here before, but thought I would share this Dream PC of mine. This wouldn't be possible w/out a Lily Teacher Endowment Fellowship that I was awarded for being a H.S. Math teacher (lots more info on that but wont post)

So, I have purchased everything (i think). Everything is HERE!!! I will be updating this thread with pics and progress throughout my build. Thanks everyone for awesome advice through this!

I think it's name is "Frosty Dream"

Now that is one nice setup mate! I've been working on something similar for the past year or so, except I don't have my TV mounted to the wall yet.
Keen to see how you go with the Switch build, been researching the case quite a bit for my next watercooling adventure (which is how I stumbled on to this). Small world by the way, I'm currently studying to become a Maths/Physics teacher! biggrin.gif

Thats great! I wish you the best of luck and I hope that you LOVE teaching!!

Well have got 99.9% of my stuff, updated some pics, and hope to start building soon.

Just need distilled water, 24 pin sleeved, thermal paste(i think), then should be fully done!

drool.gif Another switch build. Looking really nice thumb.gif

Question about the rads, are those the thick RX series rads? Reason i ask is because I am doing a WC build soon with the switch I bought last month for $135 shipped off the egg and i am having trouble deciding on a top rad. I am curious to find out how good they work and how hard they are to go into the case/clearance issues.

They are the thick RX series. I got the Extreme Raystorm 360 kit w/ a RX 240 also. You can technically do push pull on the top and bottom rad if you want, but the top bay becomes an issue. To keep mine more clean I am just doing a pull on the top.

Thanks for the information smile.gif I know exactly what you're talking about when it comes to that top lip on the non removable drive cage. I did watch a video review that was done by overclock3d net which I think he mounted a Phoyba 360 G-changer and it showed that the rad fit just fine in here but top bay looks like it restricts air flow over part of the 3rd fan. On the 420 rad builds that I have seen, they cut it out completely.

Can't wait to see more
