It seems my SR2 build has drawn some attention and as a result i have been contacted by a guy wanting me to build him a nice gaming rig for his son for Christmas.
So i specced him a nice machine that can play games all day long for a reasonable price.
No watercooling of the custom nature on this one,a H100 is going in as i cant rely on the customer remembering to change fluids etc...he is not an enthusiast of watercooling but he is interested in it so im keeping it simple for now,he can upgrade to a custom loop later....maybe an EK HF or XSPC D5 Raystorm kit.

The case is having some minor modding done,panel swap for a clear window with no fan mounts,lights....all your favorites.
This is not going to be a drawn out log,this will be turned around in a week or so.
Nice little gaming rig i think,You?
Needs second 660Ti! Wait, that's my OCN overkill-itis talking! Looks like a solid gaming rig to me!
I cracked on today,this is the case...Corsair C70 in green.
I am a big fan of this case now for the lovely little touches i will show later.
So,this is the case in its empty glory.
The 2 fans on the HDD cage,these are not staying.
This one is not staying either.
One of the nice touches with this case,decent cable management!!
Both cages come out,very nice indeed.
Dont worry,the red is not stayig either.
Again,someone was thinking,cable routing for the external fans.
Rubber grommets for the fan mounts.
Now,to the meaty center....
TUF Armor inserts.
1155 Ivybridge i5 3570k
8Gb Corsair Vengeance RAM
Black PCB FTW
Easy as pie to install this.
I have sprayed the rings yellow,they contrast nicely with the rest of the build and show up well thru the mesh of the case.
EVGA 660Ti Installed.
Very nice card with the EVGA backplate,goes so well with this build!
Looking good so far!
Wiring tomorrow and the rest of the mods to be done during the week when the acrylic and lights turn up.
Would you like this for Christmas?
Good job B-Negative
Nice build man. Love the yellow on the fans.
What a christmas for that guys son it will be this year
Great theme; looking forward to following this one! Son's got an awesome dad aswell
What a lucky kid. I love that mobo. Awesome build and the color scheme, nice choice!
I would very much like to have that as a Xmas gift! Everything looks put together very nicely, little touches like the yellow accents on the fans is great.
Nice, but you really need to run those fans at 9v or 7v or otherwise they will be unbearably loud.
