[Build Log] Project mATX - Fury

post #1 of 53

Project mATX - Fury




With Project mATX just around the corner and having impatiently ordered some of the components, I figured it was about time to write up this build. It's been about 6 months since my last build so I'm extremely keen to jump into this and with the goal of water cooling, I'm super excited.



So those who aren't aware, Project mATX is Jeffinslaw's brain child, he has designed the case from the ground up and I reckon you give the scratch build thread a peer over if you've got a minute. For my build I'll be using his case in black.

Parts:



Water Cooling Parts:



Work Log:

So I don't have a heap done at the moment given that the Case isn't in my hands, but I took some photos of what I had and threw the system together to make sure nothing was DOA.

All images will be kept here

Timeline:

17/11/2015 - Thread Created, Boxed and Un-boxed pictures.
Doa Testing done.

18/11/2015 - Picked up my R9 Fury X today, Looks beautiful.

29/1/2016 - Case arrived, Everything installed in the case, Air cooled at the moment, Should have water blocks early next week.

2/2/2016 - Brace Yourselves, Photos are coming...

3/2/2016 - Balls deep into construction, PETG bending is next!

4/2/2016 - All Tubing is done, Blood Red coolant flows through the Blocks and piping. Photos are a little behind the physical work log as the PC is my main driver.

7/2/2016 - Bought Some MDPC Color X for the PSU Cables, That and a red LED strip and a White one as I wasn't sure what would look best. Pretty much done at the moment. 4.4ghz on my CPU and 10% increase on my Fury X. Will post updates as they come, Thanks for viewing smile.gif

13/2/2016 - LED's Installed, Only the sleeving left now biggrin.gif

Well, I bought myself a new camera to take some better quality photos with! Also picked up an old Nintendo-64 controller (Which I spent 2 hours dissembling and cleaning with q-tips and alcohol) and took some test shots with my new DSLR. My EKWB's are in Melbourne, so pending on Customs, I'll have them by Monday afternoon smile.gif

And some higher quality photos of the current setup!
