I scored a Mozart XT case and this motherboard CPU combo for a steal! This build is going to be Candy Red and Ciroc Red Berry themed! biggrin.gif



























The Ciroc bottle will be the RES but not sure where I will place it yet, I wanted to put it up front but I dont think it will work out.... The three colors in this build are Candy RED, Black Onyx, and Dull Silver. I will probably pick up a FlowJet for the pump since I have the room and Im thinking two 240mm Radiators or maybe even a 360mm in there somewhere.. I may also make this my HTPC but im not sure yet, I will find a use for it!

Parts:

$100 Thermaltake Mozart XT
$275 EVGA Classified & Xeon W3530 Combo
$150 HD 7970 3gb DDR5
$30 EK 7970 Backplate
$10 Dual 12" Cold Cathode Kit
$100 Swiftech MPC35x
$25 EK MPC35x Pump Top Acetal
$50 EK Monarch X4 ram block Nickel/Acetal
$80 6x BitsPower RAM Plates
$24 2x Corsair 140mm CF RED LED Fans
$150 AlphaCool UT60 280mm RAD
$75 EK Classic Copper CPU Block
$110 EK HD 7970 Block
$24 MCP35x Pump Heatsink Housing
______________
$1203 Total

That is one monster of a case! Looks like it'll be an awesome build (and a little overpowered for a htpc no?). Subbed thumb.gif

Thanks! And yea thats the main reason I jumped on it for that price! biggrin.gif Yea for a HTPC but I think it will come to use for gaming and maybe even PS3/4 emulation.... I will find something crazy to do with it!

Subbed. Interesting. Not the same as I'm used to seeing.

That W3530 is no slouch, even by today's standards. Interested to see what this baby can churn out. But yeah, defo an overkill for an HTPC but never for "crazy things". biggrin.gif

And oh, subbed! Really interested on how you make the res stand out with this setup. This is your what, 7 build, no? tongue.gif
