[Build Log] Corsair Air 540 PC Overhaul.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey there OCN. This build log will basically be me rebuilding my PC from scratch. I have and will receive and influx of money due to the fact that I just received my GED and I have a birthday coming up. Please bare with me while things get going as this project will not be complete until after at least July 27th (my birthday).

Back Story:

Back in May, I had a coolant leak in my H100i that damaged my motherboard and I bought a Crosshair V Formula-Z and FX8350 which I subsequently sold due to it being a poor clocker. For the past month I have been using an A8 Trinity laptop while putting away money to do this build. I hope you enjoy it as much as I will.


Parts Already Ordered:

MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming - $99.99 used on Ebay
Corsair AX860i (from old rig)
AX860i individually sleeved cables (red)
Corsair Carbide Air 540
H100i (replacement from Corsair)
Coollabratory liquid pro (yes I plan on delidding)

Budget Pending Orders:

I will take pictures of everything that I remember to, though I do have a bad memory.

Also, please feel free to give me any feedback.
