This was my first mod, and all work was done by me. I mostly used locally available materials as much as possible including PVC pipe, body filler, foam board, and salvaged materials from the original case. I bought almost all of the internal system components from the OCN Marketplace.
Like most builds, mine started off with humble beginnings. However, with enough time spent here on OCN, that desire turned into a passion to out do my first build. With so many amazing builds in these forums, I felt compelled to push myself further by coming up with something unique that would test my creativity and fabricating skills, while at the same time expand my social networking with likeminded builders here that also appreciate artistic mechanics and fabrication. After discovering the many practical possibilities of working with acrylic, I set off to make something unique. One of the first things I did was have my custom midplates made. Constructed by bonding two transparent slabs of acrylic, one thin blue piece and the other a 3/4 inch thick clear, the thicker clear piece was hand chiseled and flame polished to give it an iceberg look. Originally named "Gears of War", my goal had always been to incorporate a vertical column of flow indicators to give it a water works look. But with the addition of the custom midplates, I decided on the name "The Liquidator".
A year in the making, I went with an R4BE, x4930, 32gb/2400mhz Dominator Platinums, a reference GTX Titan, x3 Samsung 500GB SSD's, and a 4tb WD Black. To keep The Liquidator powered, I used a Rosewill Lightning 1300 watt PSU, and custom rigid wiring with each wire hand formed to simulate liquid flowing from the GPU to give it a cascading waterfall appearance. As for cooling, I'm running a couple of Alphacool Monstas to chill the simple distilled water coolant. A 360 up top, and a 280 below the midplate - the 360 has a six pack of Gentle Typhoons in a push pull configuration, while the 280 is in a pull config. All of the hardware is cooled by EKWB blocks, and to monitor the water flow are 5 Primochill flow indicators and XSPC temp sensor. A single D5 is neatly tucked away up top, and is being fed by a Frozen Q Flex reservoir to add to the simplicity of the build. To finish off the build, I've encased everything inside a CaseLabs ST10.
"Ares" its dual loop with a mix of aurora 2 + pastel red for the first loop and pastel white for the second where the two coolant are flow in opposite direction.I build it to show my passion in Modding and Gaming.This is a over $4000 dollar System. I hope you guys like it and of course vote for me thumb.gif

The case was initially kinda bland. It neede a lot of spicing up. I already had the majority of the components as I had just obtained the 4930k and X-79 Deluxe mobo. The motherboard had the gold and black and I decided to carry this theme over. I felt the colors would add to the theme in a sort of steampunk-esque sort of way.
I knew I wouldnt use any optical drives or spinning HDDs so I decided the HDD cages would be of no use and would be a perfect location for the PSU, it would also help keep the motherboard area nice, neat and plenty of room for the radiators and fans. I was able to pack 2 360mm rads and a 480mm rad as well.
I decided to go with some yellow LED strips to help accentuate the scheme and set a nice mood lighting. I was able to find some dye called "Atomic Orange." That definitely fit the theme.
There are a few touches that I wanted to do but Xmas constraints have put those off for a while.

Am wondering have there ever been 2 rigs from Slovenia competing at the same time for the rig of the month?
