"The Dark Knight" Build [BUILD LOG]

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm starting a new build for the spring and I have a lot of ideas. I love Batman and anything that has to do with the Justice League. This is gonna be an all black case with several mods that I'm keeping under wraps for now. I'm gonna end up sleeving the cable a black and gray color scheme when I get more money. I've posted a few pics of the pump being mounted and that's about it. As far as specs go:

Intel I7 4770K
Asus Maximus Formula VI
Corsair Vengence 16GB
2 x GTX Asus Factory Oc'd 760's in SLI
128 Toshiba SSD
4.5 Terabyte HDD
750 SSHD
EK D5 X-RES Top 250 w/ D5 Vario Pump
7/16 x 5/8 EK Perfect Seal Compression Fittings
Primochill Clear Tubing
EK UV Blue Coolant
XSPC RayStorm CPU waterblock
XSPC EX240 Multiport Dual 120mm Low Profile Split Fin Radiator
Antec High Current Pro PSU 1000w


(in the pics the pump has the original 140 res on it)

It's been a minute since I updated my work log for this build. As far as the colors go, its going to be mainly a black and grey build I just have to get more equipment. The coolant color is going to change to black as well.

Here are new and updated pics.

Yeah so back in March when I first posted this build I hadn't planned on getting a 3d printer but hey it sounds like I will be adding this into my mod. Im going to be doing some pretty cool mods with some NEMA 17 stepper motors along with an arduino microcontroller. This build is going to be very reminscent of the Dark Knight of the Nolan Batman especially "The Dark Knight Rises". I don't really wanna spill to many beans just because I will be competing in the Cooler Master Mod Competition this year.

I'm thinking about something like this for SSD. My component list is going to change here within in the next few weeks and I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

That's awesome. I'm actually in the midst of doing some similar mods for my Dark Side Custom Build. I have dual WD hds mounted on top and steppers with threaded rod will slide the entire top of the case back. I really think your on your way to building a great case. I'm a 3D print guy doing his first custom case in over 10 yrs so if you ever need any 3D print help, lemme know. Good luck with the build.

Thanks. This particular build has been in mind since about the middle of last year. What I didn't realize until about June was how I was going to go about custom designing the moving parts until I researched 3d printing some. The printer itself is a wonderful tool to add to my modding tool collection. All of those first pics I took back in March are just test fits whereas the final build will be totally different.

Here's a few pics for the usb slots. I filled these in because I'm going to be modding a slim load Blu-ray in its place and lowering the usb slots to the 5.25 area.
