Here are some glamour shots of the parts i included in this build wink.gif (Not all the parts have arrived yet)

The Brains of The Rig (I5-4670k):





The Temporary Motherboard of this rig (Gigabyte Z87-N WIFI), until i can afford an Asus Maximus VI Hero:






The Graphics Card (EVGA GTX 770 SC 2GB) With a Corsair H50 Attached.




Next up is the best looking ram available imo. Props to G.Skill for a great design! (G.Skill Sniper 1x8GB 1600mhz)





The best upgrade ever for a computer: An SSD! (Corsair Force LS 60GB) thumb.gif I am planning on painting this Red to match my theme (ROG).




Up next is the classy SilverStone Strider ST60F-PS





The Logitech G19 Keyboard. I love the LCD Screen!



My Pride and Joy: The Turtle Beach XP300




Now For the Watercooling Components biggrin.gif


First up is the Cooler Master Glacer 240L AIO. It is the base for my Loop, and is a quality product.




Next is the Swiftech MCR320QP-K 360mm Rad. I have yet to try it, but i know it is a quality product!





The Swiftech 1/2" Barb Fittings. I like the sleek color!





Last up is my 10 feet of Primoflex UV Red tubing.




This is my first time taking pictures with this camera. How do the photos look? wink.gif

Cool.

I was wondering if an AIO would reach from the GPU to the front rad position in a 925. Subbed to find out.

A Hero might look a bit lost on the main case though. (?) - something else to find out.

Check in with the HAF stacker thread : LINK

Thanks man! I am going for a red and black build. It was the first one that caught my eye. Any recommendations on other Z87 boards that are red and black?

UPDATE
This update is sort of small, but i successfully sleeved my first cable! I'm feeling pretty good about it. I managed to mess-up a foot of sleeving trying to get it right, but it was worth it imo! How does it look?
