Intro:

I saw a lot of black and gold colored themes and wanted to try it out myself. In the beginning I was only going to use gold in a few places to make it stand out more, but that quickly changed into becoming the focal point of the build! All the golden components and sleeve, were too cool to be limited to only a few places. I came into this build with the importance to attention to detail, all parts were chosen with the theme in mind, and any part that didnt fit the theme were modified to complement it. Any obstacles in the case were answered with my trusty dremel!. My overall mission of Black Gold was to create a build that was so clean and elegant that people would think it came from the factory that way!

Update #2

More awesome photos!

I love this shot





fittinggggggs ! i have to say, the monsoon fittings are really nice. the tool is actually very useful



EK Blocks of course





the pump





lets rock



First things first

Every build i do i always wear nitrile gloves. its keeps things clean, reduces the amount of clean up later, and looks cool biggrin.gif



so now that im ready to handle the case and components, first thing i did was disassemble most of the case, i prefer to start with a fresh canvas








Now i figured i'd install the pump to see how it would look. but alas the first hurdle!

the drive bay cage isnt meant for a dual bay devise, only single.

but no worries. I masked up the area i wanted to remove, busted out the dremel and cut away







and success! it fits perfectly flush now.




Lets see how that motherboard looks installed

mmmm



Now, as much as i love the Corsair Dominator Platinums, their silver bar isnt going to fit in with the build. So i took off the bar, and painted them black

turned out pretty good!





Before we get too carried away, lets make sure everything works.

I installed the cpu, stock heatsink, ssds, hdd, and booted her up












Everything checked out fine! ram registered all 16gb at 1866mhz and everything!

thanks for checking in

more to come!
