[Build log] Project Dark Knightmare

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

Hello! My name is Oskar, I'm 21 years old and I currently live alone in a small apartment in Sweden. This project will mark my second custom build, and I can't say how excited I am to share this journey with you. Last year I started planning my first ever custom loop, which then evolved into something else entirely and in the end it resulted in a pretty cool project which ended up getting the name "White Dream". The gallery recently hit 11000 views which is far more than I expected it to reach. With some newfound confidence I am now looking to improve from previous experiences and I've taken all critisism positive and negative with me to learn how to make a build like this better.
 
Anyways, that was a short presentation about me. Now lets talk about my next project. With influences from one of our most iconic superheroes of all time, who also happens to have his 75th anniversary this year, I am looking to create an interesting piece with a couple of nice details to honor the caped crusader himself, more popularily known as Batman.
With darker colours, mostly black with some influences of grey I will do my best to make this build as clean as possible.
The case used in this build is a Hex Gear R40 with black accent packs, I will also repaint or anodize the silver coloured aluminum profiles black.
 
 
A list of the hardware used in the build can be seen below:
EVGA X99 Micro Socket 2011-3
Intel Core i7 5820K
EVGA GTX980Ti SC+
Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4 16GB
Corsair HX850i
Samsung EVO 850 250GB
WD Green 1TB
Cooling:
Coming soon...

Hi everyone, I hope you had a pleasant week.
As this build progresses, I am looking to improve my photography knowledge, including learning photoshop on a deeper level. Hopefully both you guys and me will be able to see some improvement looking at the first pictures I post here compared to the ones I will conclude the build with.
For those interested, I will be using a Canon EOS 70D housing with a Canon EF24-105mm objective, for editing I will use Adobe Photoshop CS6. I appreciate every single bit of critisism, without it I will not improve at my craft.

For todays update I've been polishing my photography skills by taking some pictures in raw format and then editing them in photoshop to get my own touch to them.








Do you want to see these pictures in a higher resolution?

Last night and some time today I've also put a lot of time into learning how to create my own logo in photoshop which I did. I feel proud to introduce "BY BMAWN", a short and clean logo which I made to be used as a watermark in my photos and to give my banners and posts an identity true to my goals and personality that is easy to recognize.
So in the future you will notice that I have added the logo to all of my photos and if you have any suggestions or opinions they are very welcome because they will help me improve!
Here's the logo by its own:

It will probably be a while until next update by then I will hopefully have some hardware pictures to upload for you!
See you then smile.gif

Hello people! Cincerely hope that you had a nice week.
Yesterday I recieved a package from Mayhems, see pictures below:

The clarity of glass is way higher than say, acrylic or PETG, so hopefully this will bring out the best of the Aurora fluid that I will be using.

In the package there were two bottles of Mayhems Pastel Black concentrate, one bottle of Mayhems Aurora 2 Silver concentrate and last but not least three 500mm long tubes of Mayhems brand new very own glass tubing. Can't stress how excited I am to try out glass tubing in this build and I can't thank the guys at Mayhems enough for these products.
The package from highflow and my fittings will most likely arrive monday or tuesday at the latest, so this week will be hectic with a lot of building and updates (hopefully).
So updates will start raining in this coming week,so please feel free to follow the thread smile.gif
Thats all from me today, have a pleasant weekend.
