[Failed Build Log] Loot chest

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
Hi All
First PC I've built that's worth a build log. I will be turning a Borderlands 2 loot chest into a mini gaming rig for the wife as her 2 or 3rd xbox is drying. I have no set budget for the build but aiming to spend about £400 a month on it till its done. The work will mostly be done on my lunch breaks at work as more tools and I don't get a messy house.

[The Specs]
Processor: Intel Core i5 4440
Motherboard: MSI H87I Socket 1150 H55 Mini-ITX
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Low Profile Vengeance Memory
GPU: EVGA GTX 750Ti Superclock 2GB
Storage : Seagate 600 Series 480GB + Seagate 2TB 2.5HDD
Case: Borderlands 2 Loot Chest
Power Supply:Silverstone Strider ST45SF-G

[Watercooling bits]
CPU Cooler: EK-Supremacy - Nickel
GPU Cooler: EK-VGA Supremacy - Nickel
Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 120mm Single Radiator
Pump/Res: EK-DCP 2.2 X-RES (incl. pump)
Here is a photo of my Loot chest.




Here is the loot chest open to show the little space inside.



Few of the bits that have turned up today. I only started ordering bits on Friday

Spent my lunch break taking out the DVD slots inside the case. Will be sanding them down tomorrow.

Any advice on watercooling will be appreciated I have never done it before and kinda being forced into it due to the case.

I have gone with EK block due to seeing them about and they look very nice that's about it.
