Rosewill Thor V2 build with i5 3570K

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Heres my latest build I did for one of my good friends. He plans to use it as a gaming rig. I put a lot of time into this thing. Heres what were working with

Case: Rosewill Thor V2
CPU: i5 3570K cooled by a phanteks dual 140
Mobo: Maximus V Gene (I know its small for the case but it overclocks well)
Ram: G Skill 2133mhz CL9 2x4gb
GPU: EVGA GTX 670
SSD: 256gb samsung 840 pro
HDD: 3tb Seagate
PSU: Rosewill Fortress 750W 80+ Platinum
Monitor: Asus 24" 60hz 1ms
Green LEDs, strips, and paint
Black and green sleeving.

All the fans had green LEDs installed and wired to a switch in front of case. Green LED strips on the inside of side panel are also installed on the switch. Quick disconnects were used as needed so all fans and side panel can be removed easily.

Heres the parts in the boxes


Shots of the case




Some painting ans sleeving


Side fan with leds and led strips on case. Quick disconnects used to make it user friendly.


This heatsink is massive. Im glad the case has enough room for it


Parts installed. You can even see extra sata cables in the bottom of the case.


Added about 70 feet of wiring just for the LED lighting control circuit. It uses the stock switch in the front of case.




Might be hard to see but the red leds on the front panel for the Thor light and side bars were also changed to green.


Rear fan blades painted green and green LEDs added


Side view


I have been using Rosewill cases in my builds lately and I really like them. With the great airflow the case gets I was able to overclock the 3570K to 4.5ghz with an offset voltage of .090 (still tweaking) 50 IBT passes stable staying under 85C on all the cores. The gtx 670 is running at 1200mhz and also being tweaked still. GPU never sees temps in the 70s.

I agree. Im working on the overclock some more right now. Im either gonna try to squeeze more out of it or lower voltage to get it cooler. After im done imaging the os install it will be ready for pickup. I liked to cooler on this build so much that I went out and bought one for mine biggrin.gif
