Crysis 3 [Build Log]

post #1 of 125
Thread Starter 
Hi, and welcome to my new project!


Presentation: Hi my name is Nils-Julius and I'm 14 years old, I live in the "big" city örebro in Sweden, my biggest interest is computers and you may know me from a earlier build Two attempts. and it's finally time to build my real computer, I'm choosing to modify the first look to a whole new one, and if it goes as it is expected it while be fantastic!
Introduction: The idea for the project comes from the game Crysis 3 As I always have lived Crysis, I got the idea to do a case that looks like the game. The project will be during in the summer.



Components: As I'm only 14 i don't have all the money in the whole world. So it's not the most expensive components, but it's enough for me:)

Chassi: Fractal Design XL R2



If you have any questions about my components choose, feel free to comment below


description:
The case will be a lot more nicer then earlier, I'm going to do is getting the whole case engraved with "Hexagons." You can see these anywhere in the game for an example the body, planes, the ground, a vehicle. something that also will be done is that I will engrave the fface on the front of the case, But in the down section, but in the top I will engrave the Crysis 3logo. I also wanted to engrave the Crytek logo on the right side of the case, If you have the case front against your face. I also have ammo that i will try to make a weapon of. The sleeving and the build will be have these colors. Shade 19,Color-X,white, och black. I'm also thinking of painting the GPU cooler with some nice colors that matches the build.


If you have any questions please feel free to comment.

Thanks man!

Good day, Dear readers the sun is shining here in Sweden, How about you?

Today i tested to engrave the mask again, and this time, it looked way more better then the others!


The result looked like this!



And as i said, it got better thumb.gif

There's one thing that's really annoying, finding the lines on the black case, That's why i have some questions for you!

What do you think about painting the case with some white parts? not all but some for easier engraving?

And how good are 3X GTX 470 against the 7970? I can get the 470s half the cost of the 7970? what do you think?

I ordered the case yesterday and thought that i would have it today, but i will get it tomorrow.

PS..... The next update will be big!

Take care!

Sincerely,
NJB Mods

You can´t go wrong with a 7970, and if you need the ultimate power, a 7990 is the most powerful GPU out there :D
