[Build Log] ** Hillbilly Crystal **

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

First build log here, been lurking for a while though. This will be my third build but most intricate (for me). Nothing too special here and I don't need any thing ridiculous. I mainly just play BF4 and do some Photoshop work. Just wanting some killer FPS when it comes to gaming.

Hope some folks here will enjoy thumb.gif

*New to this, so constructive criticism is one thing but I'm not interested in total negative feedback, if you feel as if you do not like my build then I really don't care for brash comments. Thanks in advance.

Specs:
-Case: Thermaltake Core P5
-Motherboard: Asus Maximus VIII Hero
-CPU: Intel i5 6600K
-GPU: EVGA GTX 980 Ti
-RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR420Mhz 32GB

On the Shopping List / To Do:
-PSU: TBD - Looking at fully modular.
-Liquid Cooling: TBD; Looking at EK blocks/ fittings, the rest of items needed are undecided. Looking to Hard Pipe my loop. (open to feedback or suggestions for what may be compatible with this case. I will obviously be doing plenty of research (as if I haven't already) through the forums.
-PCIe SSD for OS and some software
-All needed cables sleeved for color match

Like the color scheme. Green and white seem to be very popular lately. I am even learning that way. Looking forward to more.

May I ask exactly what paint that green is?
