Dedicated to the memory of Adam Wilson, aka "Erakith" RIP 10-16-12


Welcome to my build log!

This project is the culmination of months of planning and dreaming. It all started with the announcement of the release of Crysis3, and me realizing I wouldn't have enough GPU to get the job done. One thing led to another and here I am with basically all new parts and a fantastically massive case to mod.
Colors:
Black
Lime Green
Grey
Pearl White (possibly)

Parts

Main Components:


Case: Enermax Fulmo GT
Motherboard: Gigabyte G1.Sniper3
Processor: Intel 3770K
Ram: Samsung Green 16 GB (eyeballing those new Corsair Doms though..)
GPU: TRI SLI EVGA GTX 580 3 GB
GTX Titan x 2
SSD: 2 x 120 GB OCZ Vertex 3 RAID0
HDD: 1 TB Western Digital Caviar Black
PSU: Enermax MAXREVO 1350w

Watercooling:

Dual Loop
Swiftech MCP655 B x2
Bitspower acrylic top x2
Bitspower matte black dress kit x2
EK SUPREME HF
EK FC580 GTX x3
EVGA Backplates x3

EK-FC Titan
Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper Triple 140mm Radiator x2
Akasa 140mm x 25mm VIPER x12 (to be ordered)
Akasa 140mm x 25mm Apache Fans x13
Monsoon compression Fittings
Bitspower Fittings
Swiftech GPU connectors
Masterkleer tubing
Mayhems Dyes
Bitspower 250ml tube reservoirs x2 (to be ordered)

Sleeving:

Green, Grey, and Black fully custom made (by myself biggrin.gif) Paracord sleeved wiring.


Now originally I was intending to wait for the new version of the NZXT Phantom to come out. But I got sick of the waiting game, heard some things I would rather not repeat and I started shopping around. After literally looking at every full sized case on the market I settled on the Enermax Fulmo GT. There were several factors involved in my decision making. 1) It's enormous. I can not stress this enough. I believe you could fit many other cases inside it. 2) There isn't really a lot of extra crap to feel bad about hacking off etc., basically it's a modder's dream. 3) As a plus to me I couldn't find a single person who has really modded this case. That's kinda fun for me! 4)Finally it's a great price at just over $200 it's a lot of case for the money. Of course it has many many fine features that a normal person would be interested in hearing about, but I could care less! tongue.gif

So I'm actually a few days into it as of writing it. I wanted to get some work done and pictures taken before teasing everyone.

Also I should mention I took this as the perfect excuse to make myself a little mod shop. I got a bandsaw, jigsaw, file sets, titanium drill bits, and loads of other stuff. I can now work with metal/acrylic/wood if I wanted to. So feel free to throw out any ideas you may have. I can basically fab anything I need.


Finished Product Updated With Titans!:

Lots and lots of rivets on this one. Not a problem for me, but for some this is no good.
