Sith Lord - AMD FX-9590 build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I wanted to start this off with saying that I love building computers. I think the thing I love the most about it is that its something that I construct and I get my hands dirty. Then after all the tears and frustrations are over, I can enjoy it. With that said I do apologize if that this becomes a bit narcissistic at times, I am the first to say that I make mistakes. My first build, was a AMD MP. It was one of AMD's first multiple processors and I forgot to put the thermal compound. A mistake that I'll never let myself make again. mad.gif

Sorry for that long into, I just wanted to talk a little bit about myself before I begin...

So as you see here this is what I had to work with! Before starting I always like to have a theme... I choose this time to go for a "Sith" build! So obviously I went with the red and black look.

Republic of Gamers items:
1) Crosshair V Formula Z
2) 2x Raidr Express

Since they have worked into them a red and black look, I went with these. I also liked some of the videos that showed the strength of the Raidrs, when running multiple ones. I know that running 4xSSDs would give you the same results but again... the aesthetics are hard to argue.

I went with:

3)EVGA SuperNOVA 1000w 80 plus platinum power supply
4) Thermaltake water 3.0 Extreme (although this would be removed later)
5) AVEXIR Core Series (Red LED) SDRAM 16GB Kit DDR3 1600 One of the coolest looking things!
6) Cosmos II (changed the 200m in the front for a Red LED one)

There you can see me explaining some things, I do apologize for my horrible voice >.<<br />
so after that; which was right before Christmas, my girlfriend gave to me a XSPC RayStorm D5 Photon AX360 WaterCooling Kit! I was so excited so I had to change some things. It was the worst experience taking out that darn Thermaltake closed loop system. I ended up damaging the thing taking it out >.<<br />
So after all of that this is how it looks:

I was very happy with the look but I wasn't done yet... I wanted to change the overall look of the Cosmos, just a bit.

I purchased some red Plasti dip, and created some designs and some accent points around to case.

I mistakenly only purchased one can and it was obviously not enough >.<<br />
Tell me what you guys think, I have way more updates... my Sith Lord still needs more =)
