B&W 350D

BLACK & WHITE CORSAIR 350D

post-flame-small.gif

The color theme for the build will be black and white (obviously smile.gif), but also a few red and grey notes. I already built a red themed build in the 800D 3 years ago, and I'm sure they will be a lot of red themed 350D on this forum, so I decided to go with white this time! The objective is to make the perfect rig for daily use and gaming, while keeping it silent. For me the 350D is the perfect size to put the rig on my desktop, without living in the shadow of a huge tower (900D rolleyes.gif). I am kinda perfectionist so I will try to make this rig look as good as possible, and all your remarks and comments are welcome.

I really love these fans! Already tested them, they are really silent!


And here is the PSU!


And what's in this box ?


WOW !


Corsair really did a good job with sleeving.


Here is what I want to achieve with the colors in this build:

If you're going to get a GTX 770, I'd save some money and just grab a 680 instead. The 770 will be a rebranded 680. You might be able to catch the 680 on sale during the initial release of the 7xx GPUs. Still, subbed smile.gif

Thanks for subbing smile.gif

You are right for the GPU, I've changed the first post. Anyways can't wait to see the first reviews of these GTX7xx to confirm what you're saying.

Should definitely look at the Z87 Gryphon m-atx board, looks awesome and no red theme. Then maybe just put a sticker over the red AX part of your PSU to match.

Yep the Gryphon is definitely on my list, but I'm scared about the temps with the thermal armor, and I'm not really a fan of the brown notes.

Not sure about the few red notes, it really looks good with black and white if you don't put to much of them, like on the Audi R8 GT:

Good thing they made it optional on this one.

I made a quick photoshop of the colors without the thermal armor :


In my opinion it really looks better with it ! Like on this build:


Hope the temps will be OK!

PS: I need those white Vengeance ram sticks rolleyes.gif

EDIT: I might go with this GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked Signature 2
