Switched / Source 530/ No Name yet

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
Just to introduce myself since this is my first build log post, I have been modding since 2001 and have built any number of computers. My first real build was an AMD Athlon 1600+ with a Radeon 7200 and likely 512 MB of RAM. I think it was kinda beasty for the time. As a long time AMD fanboy I am moving on and trying out an Intel, don't let me down. Now on to this build.

I have a real feeling that I need to do a black and white build. I like the look and it seems to be semi-popular. Now on to the parts list and Ill explain what I'm going to do when I get all of the parts.

Main parts:
4770K (Poss Delid) Waiting
MSI Z97 Krait Edition Waiting
Kingston Fury HyperX White/Black Edition (16 GB) Ordered
Kingston HyperX 128 GB SSD Raid 0 Ordered
1 WD 1TB Black 64MB Received
2x MSI GTX-970 Waiting
NZXT Source 530 Black Ordered
Possible custom pedestal Drawing
Cougar 1000CMX (Painted/Sleeved White) Received/Not Painted Still undecided
7x NZXT FN V2 120mm fans Waiting


Water cooling parts:
EK-Supreme LTX - Nickel Waiting
2x EK-FC970 GTX WF3 - Nickel Waiting
EK-RES X3 250 Waiting
EK-CoolStream RAD XTX (240) Waiting
EK-DCP 4.0 PWM Waiting
Fittings will be decided last Waiting
EK clear tubing Waiting
White Pastel Received


All of the parts that are in waiting are there for a reason. I want to finish the case mod before I order all of the parts that could need to be changed. I plan to remove the HDD bay and hide mine, will be painted black so that shouldn't be difficult. I plan to also cut out another portion of the side of the case to show off the pump/res and possibly the back of the motherboard as well. I will also be using NZXT lighting for the inside, white of course. I will post up when I have the loops drawn up and update my post as to which fitting I decided to go with and I will also update with pics as the parts come in and I start modding. Thank you for reading!
