How do you like some grey/black sleeving then? For this build I am using a combination of grey/black & red/black sleeving. This was chosen to not "overdo" the red in the build.

How do you guys like this combo?

YOU SEE THIS? This is the way I like grey applaud.gif You have 50% black, 25% gray and 25% red, the grey doesn't play a mayor role in it, but it's still there. It goes so well with the rest of the colors biggrin.gif

Really glad you like it. I have spent today finishing up a lot of the sleeving, but still need quite a bit.

I hope you also like the 24 pin, and 8 pin:D

I bought a VII Gene just before the VIII was released and wasn't too happy about that as you could imagine, haha. I think that I'm going to sell off the VII and get an VIII, these pictures have me in love with the new colour scheme. Subbed, looking forward to seeing this build flesh out.

Performance wise it will do you nothing good, but damn it looks so much better than the old versions:D

Final building pics before the final final pics:D

nNAOwA5.jpg

The new cover for the top with the STRIX logo engraved into it.

QifOrkA.jpg

Mounting the motherboard and cpu - prepping for the air cooler:D

GtS0EuJ.jpg

Gpu´s with the light shining trough the front panel, revealing the ROG logo.

K2rgDCx.jpg

Both GPU´s installed! So. Friggin. Heavy...

tVoUW1v.jpg

I went with a BeQuiet cooler for this build, simply because I really liked the looks of it when you take off the top fan. The 6600K is easily kept cold by this.

LFK6icO.jpg

The stock sticker on the side of the PSU did not match the rest of the build, so I peeled it off, and had Nate over at E22 laser engrave the logo into the side panel.

4lxB4pZ.jpg

Lasers are pretty!

pmstySZ.jpg

And effecient!

DAwHMX5.jpg

Power supply mounted. The cpu cooler is a tad bigger than it looked on the pictures, but looks nice none the less!

VFvT57S.jpg

Time to do some cabling. Starting out with the GPU cables.

vLEETyW.jpg

I designed this fancy acrylic peice that will hold the gpu´s up. The DCIII cooler weighs a lot, so the gpu´s bend a little. And I wanted to make sure that when transporting this build, they where rock solid.

cqlHwBz.jpg

This mounts to the bottom of the case, and is screwed in from the bottom, holding the gpu´s in place no matter how you turn the build.

aDfLOhO.jpg

There is two 120 mm fans in both the bottom and top compartment. The top fans had a grill made for them that hides the fan motor.

B1ZarKS.jpg

Closer look at the fan motor grill.

Rear action!

KsNvH9O.jpg

My favorit shot. Cables uses the same dual gpu combs that I designed for the Nvidia rig I did earlier this year. Final pics soon!

Final picture time!

SPECS:
ASUS Maximus viii Gene
2 x ASUS 980 TI strix SLI
Intel Core i5 6600K
Corsair HX1000i 8 gb Corsair vengeance LPX ram (later upgraded to 16 gb)
256 gb Corsair Neutron XT ssd
BeQuiet dark rock TF cpu cooler
Teleios sleeving and E22 cable combs

PmLTt7f.jpg

The front of the case has been redone with the ROG logo. The acrylic piece behind the front have been modded to fit two LED strips that lights up the entire front panel when turned on.

ubqaLtz.jpg

Both right and left side panel has been laser engraved, to etch away the black paint, leaving bare aluminium.

BgBrS8h.jpg

The aluminium on the panels matches up nicely with the extruded profiles.

wK9uuSY.jpg

Rear panel is the only outer panel that has been left stock.

Gm4fbE5.jpg

2ubGFZR.jpg

More engraving shots

Yi6oS3K.jpg

Top panel has the strix logo, as the graphic cards used are 980 ti strix´s

Rear view shots

v7wGNkO.jpg

I opted to go for the BeQuiet dark rock TF cpu cooler, and simply removed the top fan. Really like the looks of these "laid down" coolers compared to regular tower coolers!

UwA2osF.jpg

Since the graphic cards are quite heavy, I made a piece of acrylic that also works as a cable comb. This acrylic piece holds up the cards, so they do not damage the PCI ports on the motherboard during transportation.

Also, look at that laser engraved PSU biggrin.gif Definitly won´t be the last time I do that.

Ejj2Zwd.jpg

Sleeving on the graphic cards. These cards are really huge. I am glad I do not have to sleeve for some of the cards that has 3x8 pin power connectors. I think 2 per card is MORE than enough:D

qBCXxPg.jpg

To keep the graphic card holder in place, this little aluminium block was made. It was milled out, and then I finished it off with wet sandpaper, and manually chamfered the edges.

This mounts to the bottom of the case, so the cards can travel neither up or down.

etZbmwR.jpg

Top mounted LED strip, and acrylic duct for the fans.

A6L9djy.jpg

As mentioned before, the front has two LED strips inserted into it. The power for these are routed out of the black cover piece.

9wIC8o1.jpg

Another shot of the top LED strip.

bZaEzqN.jpg

The 8 pin cable for the motherboard.

qyr524a.jpg

And the OS drive.

K0hzZX9.jpg

Last but not least, the top fan grill. This covers up the plastic parts of tthe fans that holds the fan motor in place.

All in all a nifty little gamer:D

Thanks to ASUS and Corsair for their help with this build! If you missed it at the ASUS stand at I55, it will be at EGX also!
