[Build Log] SHOCKWAVE - Caselabs S8 - ASUS X99-RAMPAGE EXTREAM V - I7 5930 - H2O

Hey Guys here is my New build called SHOCKWAVE. This will be a High End Gaming and Editing Rig, I have done a few builds before but have not listed them under build logs before or on this site, The only one i did list on Overclocker was my Lian Li D600 build thats under there thread. Anyways i am very excited to present and share with you my new gaming and editing rig. Also this is so awesome for me as i am finally going to build into a very favorite and most wanted case the Caselabs Mercury S8 with Pedestal. This will be a full watercooled build with some custom paint work done to it as well. Please follow me as parts will be arriving over the next weeks from the USA, GERMANY and locally. So this is definitely not a rush job build and i am not the most expert modder like some guys here who do an awesome work here but I do my research on most of my builds before commencing and have got all my ideas from great modders here. I also follow a well known countryman Singularity Computers who builds awesome computers here and try to take and make new ideas to my build. So, although i wish i could go crazy into this build but cant as i have to wait for the case to get here and some other ordered parts. I will give you a break down off all. The cost um maybe smile.gif I hope you will all enjoy this with me and your comments are welcome.
