Updates


Update# 01 - initial components
Update# 02 - More components
Update# 03 - Desk build and tools
Update# 04 - Old System breakdown
Update# 05 - Memory arrival and temp setup
Update# 06 - CPU block and sleeving equipment
Update# 07 - The Case arrives
Update# 08 - more fans!
Update# 09 - WC stuff
Update# 10 - Res arrive and some work
Update# 11 - the rads!
Update# 12 - some actual work
Update# 13 - some led/acrylic work
Update# 14 - new goodies and some more work
Update# 15 - macro pics and lots of work
Update# 16 - 480 rad work

As you can see from the cooling and the specs this worklog really is overcompensation of some kind xD

The original idea for this worklog when i first decided to start the build was only to update my current system but the damn bug bit hard tongue.gif and slowly by slowly as i started buying parts I ended up with a whole new system only missing a new case.

The new case had to be something truly modular and have the ability to accommodate any upgrades I would do in the future. The only case I could see anywhere that fits the bill to a tee was caselabs cases. I started looking around their site and i fell in love with the ST10:loved: . well thats the gist of my worklogs origin story.

Look forward to a whole load of updates once I get all the pictures off the camera and raw files processed.

Looks like my apartment but with nicer furniture tongue.gif

I'm gonna have to build a workshop in my backyard biggrin.gif

Isn't a dual loop setup overkill for this rig??
post #9 of 31
Subbed!

I love how you didn't have a desk...so might as well build one biggrin.gif

Building on the balcony is actually a good idea. I could do that since I'm in an apartment too.
