[Build log] project ooze

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi! I wanted a place to store the changes and evolution of my current AMD build which I like to refer to as "Project Ooze". We're starring out small and working our way up in terms of parts. With that said there should be plenty of updates and pictures along the way.
The goal was pretty simple here, we wanted a high end performance pc slammed inside a micro atx form factor.

Thanks for looking and please let us know what you think!!

Parts list-

AMD FX-8320E
XFX R7 360 2gb
Cooler Master Storm R2.0 550w psu
Asrock 970m Pro3 (matx) mobo,
Crucial Ballistix DDR3 @1866 8gb (2x4)
Corsair 140mm SP (purple) fans x3
Thermaltake Core V21 case

Upgrades-

EK water cooling x240 kit.
MSI R7 370 4gb (N/A)
Gigabyte R9 390 G1 8gb
Crucial Ballistix DDR3 @1866 8gb (2x4)



So here is the first boot with the R7 360, still a lot of real-estate to play around with. The TT V21 case is so easy to move and play around with. The modular system makes this a hybrid test bench and I love the ease of removing any single panel at any given point.








Here's a shot of when I upgraded to the R7 370 after having the 360 for ~3 days...



Liquid in coming! RAM installed!



I made the cables shorter after setup.




After I set up the custom loop, the MSI card started to bother me. So naturally after having it for a week, I had to box it and lay it to rest in my closet.

"Excuse me sir, we need a 390!"




Thanks for looking, will update as we go further along. Will also provide time stamps and benchmarks. Give us your thoughts!

Not trying to be rude, but I would suggest better photography.
I want to comment on your build but I really have no idea what is going on in that case.
I'm guessing you took these with a cell phone. If you upload the photos don't upload the actual size. It is way too big when looking at the original in version.

The color coordination is...unique. Is there a certain theme you're going for?
