Project MJ

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here's my build so far. Calling it Project MJ because I want everything black and white :-P

Next step is possibly doing some custom cables (white sleeved, yummy) and some watercooling just for the hell of it. Thinking of getting a 240 for the cpu and a 240 for the GPU.

It's not exactly an uber high end rig, mostly using it for mining (gpu at 1170mhz,memory 6000mhz, gpu voltage 1.087V, giving a constant 484khs) and some light gaming.

I must say, I'm very pleased with the Obsidian case. Super nice airflow, keeps the temp of my gpu and cpu at some very nice levels during mining (53C for gpu (auto fan), and 52C for cpu)

Just a little update. Got a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme installed. Super super happy with it. Dropped idle temps by 5°C and full load temps by nearly 20°C. The stock fans are quite loud though, so gonna replace those with some Corsair AP120s. Got a bunch of Be Quiet! fans coming as well to replace the other case fans. Excuse the current state of the wiring. I've ordered a few cables from Silverstone, sleeved fan extentions and some lovely white sleeved power cable extensions for the 24, 8, and 6-pins. Should hopefully have those by the end of next week.





Sorry about the purple tint on the photos... Stupid HTC One camera

Some new bits along with some pics.
Installed a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme kit, but replaced those stock fans with some Corsair SP120s. Replaced all of the other fans with Be Quiet! Pure wings, and got some sexy white sleeved cable extensions
