[Build Log] TJ07 - Restitution | Update: 10th February, I did some sleeving!

post #1 of 83
Thread Starter 


//THE ORIGIN:
I've never been completely happy with a case mod I've done, I've always just got fed up with having no rig so I've rushed bits towards the end and had a "good enough" attitude.
Even though that's not really my philosophy on projects and might not appear so, I still don't like the way I finish them.
My plan this time is to get everything up and running before I put any hardware in, so I only get about 1 day of downtime when I transplant stuff over.
I can always fall back on my laptop too.

This time I'm going to be taking it slow - the time it takes to do it right.
Putting the necessary amount of blood, money, time and sweat as it takes for my meticulous nature and hard to please mindset to finally settle.

I have the case, and it's not in the best shape. She and I both know she's seen better days and it'll take some time to get her back to what she once was, but we'll get there.
The restoration will be complete.


//HARDWARE:
TJ07.
AMD 6990.
Intel 2600k @ 4.3.
Asus Sabertooth Z77.
Corsair Force GT120GB.
Western Digital 1.5TB Green x3.
Corsair 8GB Dominator Platinum.
Silverstone Strider 750W w/ Sleeved Cables.

//WATERCOOLING:
Coolgate 480.
EK 6990 Nickel/Acetyl.
Scythe Gentle Typhoons.
EK Supremacy Full Nickel.
Bitspower D5 Reservoir kit.
D5 w/ Bitspower Dressing kit.
PrimoChill 3/4" | Undecided colour.

Thanks,

-f.

I remember the days where I would hunt around the internet for TJ07 builds. Never thought I'd be doing one let alone be on my second.

I'll be taking a handful of inspiration from you build as it's close to what I want to do :3
Still undecided whether I should do inverted ATX or standard ATX.
Inverted is nice but I have a cut in the midplate from the previous owner who ran it ATX so he could fit the 24 pin/GPU power through.
Hmmmmmm.
Thoughts?

Thanks for subbing, guys!

I found inverted was easier for cable management

Don't hold your breath! Progress on this one will probably be quite slow. I'm living out of home now and will have to manage my money more than I used to so actually living comfortable obviously comes first.

I don't really plan on having so many cables. GPU, Motherboard and CPU power are pretty much it. I don't use front panel stuffs so there's only like 3/4 things I need to manage.
Anything else where it benefits?

That was about all. Only reason I prefer was not having to stretch the cpu 8 pin up the back of the mobo...

Inverted requires modding of the backplate obviously so requires more work lol
