This is going to be a fantastic build, also, your renders are bloody unbelievable. Looking forward to more.

Thread Starter 
Well this has been a very long time coming. I warned people that this project may prove to be a slow burner, but even I wasn't quite prepared for this hiatus.

Long and short of it is sponsors can be very difficult to find, even with a build as well supported as this and a solid portfolio. As such, I've had to wait until I could afford to pick up some hardware myself.

On that front, I'd like to thank Wei Day from G-Skill. Whilst unfortunately they weren't able to aid in this particular project, I'm grateful that they reached out to support offer support for the project. Hopefully we'll be able to work together on a future build smile.gif

That said, there is at least now some light at the end of the tunnel!

So a few things were needed to get this build at least running. I figured it was useless having all these parts just sitting on a shelf. So I picked up some hardware to get things going, notably a couple SSDs and 64GB of Dominator Platinum DDR4. I also picked up a temporary 5820k just so things can run, along with an H100i GTX for testing and running whilst waiting for WC bits. I'll be using the 5820k later in a future project so I wasn't that worried about picking on up.

Had this spare from another project, will tide me over until I can grab a 950 Pro for some NVMe goodness.

Much pretty RAM. Still don't get the coolers though.


Slots right in there


Always wanted 8 sticks of Dom Plat, really fills the board up and fits the theme






And a sneak peak too! These are two very early concept renders for the eventual layout. You'll notice it's missing, well, most things currently as there are just so many variables right now. I'm not spending time modelling WC gear when there's no guarantee that I'll be using it.

Oh my gosh that is going to be humongous! What wall could possibly hold that amount of weight? biggrin.gif
