[Build Log] Gears of War Build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Right, This isn't a build log, as much as a mod log - but I have added and subtracted somethings from the original build, so here goes.

I'm going for a gears of war theme, so white and red.


Specs

Case: Xigmatek Elysium - Windowed
CPU: Intel i5 3570K - Clocked at 4.8GHz (so far)
Mobo: Asus Sabertooth Z77
Cooling: Custom CPU Loop
Graphics: Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 7850 OC Windforce 2X 2048MB
RAM: GeIL EVO Corsa 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-14900C9 1866MHz
PSU: Akasa Venom 750W Modular Supply
Storage: 1TB Hitachi 7200rpm

Fans:

Akasa AK-FN059 120mm Ultra Quiet Venom Viper Cool Fan x6
Akasa AK-FN063 140mm Ultra Quiet Viper Cool Fan

Watercooling Components:

RayStorm Intel CPU Waterblock
- D5 Dual Bay Reservoir
- D5 Vario Pump
- EX360 Dual Radiator


Right, So I built everything up a few months back, got it all how I wanted it, then I decided I wanted to mod it and change it even more.




So, first of all - I stripped everything out and down.





Next, Lined everything up and checked to make sure everything was ready for paint.


First things first, I painted the fans:



Originally looked like this.



Now look like this.

Then, I painted the motherboard armour surround.



Originally looked like this.


Now look this, forgive all the wires and mess. Was testing to make sure everything still worked. - In this image, you can also see that I have painted the power supply surround, painted the RAM heatspreaders and have purchased red cables to fit with my theme.

I've just painted the sides of the case, waiting for them to dry and then will paint the main part of the case, all white.

I'm also looking at purchasing some decal paper, and putting some gears logo's on the case.

Keep checked for more updates.
