Hello,

I have decided to log the process of my current primary gaming build. I named it Altinum Necromancer.
Right now I am placing in the LED strips and 200mm Fan.

The parts:
* NZXT Phantom Black and Blue LED
* Gigabyte UD-5 990FX MB
* Gigabyte radeon windforce 7950 OC'ed @ 950MHz
* Thermaltake Bigwater CPU cooler
* NZXT blue led strip 200mm
* 1TB Seagate Barracuda
* G-Skill 1600 Sniper Ram
* Cooler Master 200mm Blue LED Fan

Left to get
* FSP Aurum 750W PSU
* AMD FX-8120 (changed to a FX-4170)
* OCZ SSD Agility 3 120GB or Kingston SSD 120GB or Fujitsu SSD 120

I built this to run only on one 1080p display, I usually play non-graphics intensive titles like Diablo 3.





I will hopefully post more as I go on.

I have managed to get the MB in the case. Also I have decided that I will change the cpu, instead of getting an 8120, I will get a 4170, and wait for piledriver, I can not wait for a piledriver cpu without a cpu now, so I thought it was best to get the cheapest but sort of high performing option.

I got the thermaltake bigwater brackets in, but had trouble getting the cooler master 200mm led blue fan on, so I had to power drill in some holes where possible without damaging, sorry I meant destroying the fan.I mounted the coolermaster 200mm on the side panel, and rather using screws, I used cable cables, it fitted on really well, I made it tight enough to avoid vibration, I will add images later on.
