Let's see... Where do I get start... I had a dell matx comp for awhile but I took it back home to replace a comp that was pretty out of date. Now I'm missing a comp and thought why not build another one? Of course, I wanted to still keep an matx comp and I recalled the cube marcus had, but I didn't want the same one as his. So I got the V350.

This build will be powered by an E7200 and 4890 and eventually internally watercooled.

The name of this build had inittially come from the cpu block with the Custom Promount that I'll be making to go along with my fuzion as the heart of the rig. However, I've add so much brass that I've changed the name to BrassIe. What does it mean? Ie in Japanese, means house or home. So, it comes out as Brass House or Brass Home.

EDIT: As there are time restraints on this buildlog, I've decided to keep it aircooled for now. It will have water cooling later down the road and I'll update the log accordingly.

Much appreciation and thanks to:

  • fstfrddy for advice on polishing the brass
  • repo_man for critiques and ideas with the HDD cage.
