Thread Starter 
I'll be using this thread to record the progress of my new rig over the next few days. i'll be sleeving cables for the first time too, so expect some artsy beauty shots tongue.gif
my next update will be as soon as anything arrives in the mail, about 4pm tomorrow as long as things go as expected.

The build is now finished apart from the sleeving which i'm not sure is neccesary now. as much as i want to make a fully sleeved PSU i won't hold back my build for it. perhaps i'll sleeve once the sleeve arrives. the 3 monitor bracket i got did not fit even though the monitors were just 0.5 of an inch too small on paper (bracket was around 4 inches too small in my case), and one of the arms struck the window of my case and left it with a big smudge. mad.gif

anyway, it was a fun build and i'll post photos soon. biggrin.gif

I decided to add a 120gb SSD and a 1tb drive to the build since I will be doing some heavy multitasking, as well as needing the benefits in general that an ssd offers

here's the parts before assembly this morning, and the monitor stand is still there because at this point the monitors had not arrived.

this is my full computer station as of now, unfortunately i can't use it until my HDD and SSD arrive, estimated delivery is tomorrow.
