(Build Log)- LAN much?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have decided to come back to ITX gaming, as I have gotten into LAN parties more and more. My TJ08 build was already very small, and very powerful, and a hit at the local LANS, but now its time to try something a little smaller.


I got back into PCs by building a Phantom with dual GPUs, then water-cooled it, then went to a water-cooled TJ08, then down to a FT03.

Now I want to go smaller, and more powerful.

I picked up an SG05 quite a while ago, and planned on doing a build with it, and that never happened. So, It sat in my closet awaiting its triumphant return.

Out came the Z77 ITX boards.

I sold my FT03 build Thursday, and ordered the following:
EVGA SuperClocked GTX 670: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130783
Asrock Z77E-ITX board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157312
2x4gb Samsung DDR3 1600 low profile memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147096
Antec 620 cooler: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0391500
Crucial M4 128gb SSD: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0364545

I reused:
Intel i7 2600k
Samsung F3 1TB 7200 RPM drive
Silverstone SG05 w/450w 80+ certified power supply.

I took the SG05, and gutted it. on each side, cut out the vents, and had some plexiglass windows made. GPU side was vented, and the other side, had the BF3 logo etched in it. I shaved some of the "nubs" off of the floor of the case, so I could mount the SSD underneath the radiator. The 1tb storage drive will be velcro'd to the bottom of the PSU.

I will post pictures this evening of the case, and what has been done. The board, memory, and GPU will be here tomorrow.

This was nice, I got this from another guy on hardforums, no modding needed with the Antec 620 in order to use the mSATA port....
