I have been going back and forth on this build and how I could improve it. the plan is when I return overseas, to bring this rig along with me. A complete teardown, rebuild from the ground up and fit a 2nd rad. So far I plan on reusing the case and parts. But if Pascel drops while I'm out, then I will upgrade the GPU. May do a mobo and cpu upgrade if something significant pops up. I am happy with the performance, but there is always room for improvement. plus it was a fun build and my first step into acrylic tubing.

If I do change the case, it will most likely be the Thermaltake Core V21 and I'll move from ITX to M-ATX. Full custom cooling loop again but with SLI GPUs. but this is in the back of my mind and way on the back burner. I don't really need an upgrade that extreme just yet. the 4770k and EVGA GTX 780tiSC underwater is doing great and has a lot of years left.

Foam filter in the res was not foam anymore. i head a noise while streaming and gaming and stopped to check it out. the pump had a different sound/tone. so pop the lid and i can see the foam had moved, in fact when i tried to pick it up, it fell apart.

flushed the loop but developed a leak. when i tore it down to fix the leak the GTX 780ti didnt survive the process. its done. which is sad. it was a beast in this little box and did it without complaint.

The Elite 110 is the main rig now.

so while i wait for a replacement this little guy has taken over the streaming and gaming.

http://SWTOR.tv for my streams if interested...
