So if you followed my "Green Envy" Build you'll know it's still under construction and i decided to also put my backup rig on water while i'm at this. Thus i can use my backup rig while Green Envy is under construction, as well as get a loop under my belt before jumping to this monstrous rig i plan to assemble that is "Green Envy". It's going to take some serious time to assemble everything, learning to bend acrylic, and mod a case is going to be an experience as well.

So this build is much easier. In that it's just a single CPU/GPU with a case that requires no modding what so ever.

Just ordered the last of the components so everything will be here by mid week. Now when i can get home to actually assemble all this is another story. I start studying again on the seventh and am in the process of switching jobs. Hopefully i can find some days. I think it will take 3-5 to clean rads, blocks, assemble, and then leak test.

AMD FX-8320 @ 4.52ghz - these will be pushed further once on water.

I still have to clean my rads with a good distilled shake, clean the oxidation off my GPU block, and polish up the acrylic on the GPU block before i can even get started building. That said i'm looking forward to getting a rig under my belt. And i think it's going to turn out great. Bit of an expensive upgrade for a backup rig, but...yolo right? The case and PSU were needed WC components were about 400$ total so not too bad. Could've done cheaper i imagine. Can't wait to get started. I'll post pics as soon as i can. I guess i could've been more creative on the naming scheme but meh lol.
