Thread Starter 
GOOD DAY TO YOU, MY HUMBLE VIEWER!!!

This case is now for sale HERE!!!


The build was to be based on these colors:




And all is going swimmingly as to the aquisition of all these blue and orange parts, with some really easy pieces falling into place simply for the manufacturer's choice of component color (I'm looking at the orange Cougar fans here...)!



CASE BASIS:

29 JAN 2014:
I'm SO excited!!!
CaseLabs has released info and prototyping on their new S8, a horizontal motherboard-layout Mercury-line case, but in FULL SIZE!!!
So, I'm getting that, and taking a second shot at the silicon lottery for a 4770K, and probably delidding this one!

MORE TO COME!!!


MAY 17TH, 2014: CASE ARRIVAL!!!


JULY 21st, 2014: COMPLETED HERE!!!


I appreciate the look! biggrin.gif


Thanks - T

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!!!


A quick start-up note: Work on this will be sporadic, and there will be more parts than I need shown, simply because I'm still working out the kinks of my personal development process for watercooling projects!


Here's my first day of toil. Granted, not a lot of ACTUAL toil, but it's a start!



(Captions are below each picture in question. Thanks!)





Some random clearance rack tubing from PPCS, as well a some also-random clearance parts from the same house!





New HWL Black Ice 140.2 Stealth radiator...





ModMat Extreme! RAWR.









The radiators, unboxed!
SO beautiful... I'm in love with Black Ice rads!!! drool.gif





New Gigabyte motherboard in the box...





...Out of the box...





Bling-e-ness, and the color that inspired the build!





Bling, son. How I roll.


This motherboard is currently being bid on to sell it and acquire one of the new Z97 series boards from Gigabyte when they come out!

Looks excellent! I've had the 540 for a while now, but about to embark on the haswell build as well. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this, I'm not near as creative as a lot of you.

This keeps getting buried, and I'm not the type that imposes and goes to my other subs' threads and links my new ones... rolleyes.gif

I have ANOTHER build that's already done too! Did you see my SFF job? It's right HERE!!!
