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.

So......the specs......

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?

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.

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. smile.gif

Semiregular 10-06-2012 12:41 PM

Nice, but you really need to run those fans at 9v or 7v or otherwise they will be unbearably loud.
