Ok the least I can do is add components I bought (again, kind of a teaser til I post the full list tomorrow
)... BTW I didn’t mention this last go round but everything you see is a work in progress so feedback & ideas to make it better are welcome! I’d love to hear what you think, as you’ll see I’m pretty new to all this. Even stuff I bought can be changed if there’s a fabulous reason for it.
First, a little about me for background. This is only my second build. The first was a powerful but, being honest, vanilla 650D/Sandy Bridge rig (see sig). This computer modding thing is new to me but reminds me of car & bike projects I’ve had in the past w/the passionate enthusiast community and resources like OCN (and wanting to add MOAR POWAHHH to everything... when in doubt, upgrade
Mostly reading info on OCN is what led me to the project… I realized there’s no reason for me to have a refrigerator-sized box to run a single video card system. Plus in the last few months it seems like there’s been a ton more factory interest in SFF systems- like z77 MITX mobos, hi-po GPUs & SFX PSUs, etc. - which allows me to pack everything I need to run my workstation/folding rig/part-time gamer into something much much smaller. It also gets really hot where I live so why not throw a few rads in and learn something about water-cooling?
Once I knew what I was aiming for I decided to buy the parts and essentially design a case around them. So I bought this….
Can't give NewEgg all
So many baggies...
