[Sponsored] Lian Li PC-O8 - Xpower Gaming Titanium - Skylake - Liquid Cooling
Alright guys, time for a relatively quick build log. I initially did this build for IDF '15 in San Francisco and it made another appearance at PAX Prime 2015. I'm doing some updates on it so I will catch you up to speed and you can stay for the rest :) Intel and Lian Li approached me for this build as they wanted to show off their brand new PC-O8 chassis and of course show off the new Skylake platform. If you are going to any event that Intel is at in the next year or so, be sure to keep an eye out for it!

A bit of backstory as the build log won't really make sense. Intel initially wanted to do the build with the Gigabyte board that they sent me. Then I pointed out the awesome XPower board from MSI and they got me one of those, except now that IDF and PAX Prime have passed, we're reverting to the Gigabyte...
So I did some painting on the motherboard...
And the fans
and the radiators
Not perfect, going to need a new coat
Fans and radiator turned out great though!
Now to put everything in!
I decided to cut down the HDD tray as it won't be used and I can put another 120 rad on the back
My dust collector... don't cut inside a home kids.
The vinyl logos for the windows!
Then Intel sent me this...
So all that painting for naught.
Getting it all installed!
Blah, I ran out of combs and time...
