[Build Log] Project White Flood

Before: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
After: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It all started with Christmas 2012. I had gave a list to my parents asking for certain parts to build my very first custom PC to use for schoolwork, mainly video editing. Here's what I originally came up with: List of Originally Ordered Components: (Click to show)
When everything arrived, it was time to install. But first, I did some research. When we ordered the i5-2500K, I found the i5-3570K was the same price, and wanted to exchange. So, I filed an RMA with NewEgg about a miscommunication error and that the box wasn't opened. They told me they would make a "One Time Exception" to the order. To see that full story, click here: Last Time Ordering from NewEgg.com

After that, I ordered the i5-3570K Quad-Core and upgraded to an ASUS P8Z77-V LK. I researched and found that the H77 doesn't overclock (as well or if at all) rather than the Z77 board did. So I ordered the board, too.

Shipped the P8H77 and i5-2500k back. My original Antec Nine Hundred has a crack in the glass due to damage by carrier, so they sent me a new one, and I replaced the parts I needed. So, I was finally ready to start tweaking.

First upgrade purchase: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO with a CM SickleFlow 120 (Click to show)

After that, I picked up the Switch 810 Case by NZXT. It was a nice upgrade. Clean, and I got it for a steal, $60. Sold the Antec Nine Hundred to my Step-Brother. I also bought a Swiftech Radiator and Pump, and 3 Noctura NF-12 PWM fans. Might be selling them soon! Pics! (Click to show)



Then, it was on to the testing. I tested and tested and tested, and finally found a stable OC: 4.5Ghz at 1.33v 15hrs Stable! (Click to show)

After that was done, it was time to venture into delidding. I did it, put some AS5 on the die and the IHS, and saw....NOTHING. No gains whatsoever. So next on the list is CLP (Collaboratory Liquid Pro). Delidded about about an hour worth of work: (Click to show)

and finally, and LED mod. I bought 16ft of LEDs from here: Hitlights Blue LED:Hitlights 16ft Blue LED Strip Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

and here are some pics after install. Soldering and cutting the strips took me about 5 hours total. After LED install Pics: (Click to show)

Looks nice. Good work. However I personally do not like so bright light inside the case.

To each his own, I myself like the lights. They were cheap, easy to install, and made it a worthwhile project.

Thank you for your comments!
