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.<br><br>
So i specced him a nice machine that can play games all day long for a reasonable price.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
So......the specs......<br><br>
Intel Core i5 3570K,1155, Ivy Bridge, Quad Core, 3.4GHz, 5 GT/s DMI, 650MHz GPU, 6MB Smart Cache, 34x Ratio, 77W, Retail<br><br>
Asus Sabertooth Z77, Intel Z77, S 1155, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, SATA RAID, PCIe 3.0, DisplayPort/ HDMI, ATX<br><br>

1.5TB Seagate ST1500DL003 Barracuda LP, SATA 6Gb/s, 5900rpm, 64MB Cache, 8ms OEM NCQ<br><br>
120mm Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition, High Pressure, 2350rpm, 62.74CFM, 35dB, 3-Pin, Twin Pack<br><br>
Corsair Memory Vengeance Green 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Quad Channel<br><br><br><img alt="s8B1Q.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/s8B1Q.jpg"><br><br><br>
The case is having some minor modding done,panel swap for a clear window with no fan mounts,lights....all your favorites.<br><br>
This is not going to be a drawn out log,this will be turned around in a week or so.<br><br><br>
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! <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

I cracked on today,this is the case...Corsair C70 in green.<br>
I am a big fan of this case now for the lovely little touches i will show later.<br><br>
So,this is the case in its empty glory.<br><br><img alt="ULBxr.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/ULBxr.jpg"><br><br><img alt="VIATI.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/VIATI.jpg"><br><br><img alt="AxcgI.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/AxcgI.jpg"><br><br><img alt="4tu5T.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/4tu5T.jpg"><br><br><img alt="WCidC.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/WCidC.jpg"><br><br>
The 2 fans on the HDD cage,these are not staying.<br><br><img alt="ym7gb.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/ym7gb.jpg"><br><br>
This one is not staying either.<br><br><img alt="KZYms.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/KZYms.jpg"><br><br>
One of the nice touches with this case,decent cable management!!<br><br><img alt="RuWOn.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/RuWOn.jpg"><br><br>
Both cages come out,very nice indeed.<br><br><img alt="YBYUT.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/YBYUT.jpg"><br><br><img alt="R9cYA.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/R9cYA.jpg"><br><br><img alt="O8gwq.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/O8gwq.jpg"><br><br><img alt="tQbx9.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/tQbx9.jpg"><br><br>
Dont worry,the red is not stayig either.<br><br><img alt="tQbx9.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/tQbx9.jpg"><br><br>
Again,someone was thinking,cable routing for the external fans.<br><br><img alt="7CaNx.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/7CaNx.jpg"><br><br><img alt="hql0l.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/hql0l.jpg"><br><br><img alt="5Kda8.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/5Kda8.jpg"><br><br>
Rubber grommets for the fan mounts.<br><br><img alt="5JXcF.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/5JXcF.jpg"><br><br>
Now,to the meaty center....<br><br>
Z77 Sabertooth.<br><br><img alt="K5odu.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/K5odu.jpg"><br><br><img alt="PsvuD.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/PsvuD.jpg"><br><br><img alt="NLy4I.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/NLy4I.jpg"><br><br><img alt="C3SSX.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/C3SSX.jpg"><br><br>
TUF Armor inserts.<br><br><img alt="Ng9Ip.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/Ng9Ip.jpg"><br><br>
1155 Ivybridge i5 3570k<br><br><img alt="CmjoL.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/CmjoL.jpg"><br><br><img alt="2MOGP.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/2MOGP.jpg"><br><br>
CPU in.<br><br><img alt="PeitJ.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/PeitJ.jpg"><br><br>
8Gb Corsair Vengeance RAM<br><br><img alt="RbCl2.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/RbCl2.jpg"><br><br>

Corsair H100.<br><br>
Easy as pie to install this.<br><br><img alt="NpYva.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/NpYva.jpg"><br><br><img alt="FWNLw.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/FWNLw.jpg"><br><br><img alt="5ItYu.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/5ItYu.jpg"><br><br><img alt="KDW2b.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/KDW2b.jpg"><br><br>
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.<br><br><img alt="ltYgx.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/ltYgx.jpg"><br><br><img alt="zeN4G.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/zeN4G.jpg"><br><br><img alt="YEpts.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/YEpts.jpg"><br><br><img alt="md3eW.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/md3eW.jpg"><br><br><img alt="hJx4M.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/hJx4M.jpg"><br><br>
AX750 installed<br><br><img alt="mDyph.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/mDyph.jpg"><br><br>
EVGA 660Ti Installed.<br><br>
Very nice card with the EVGA backplate,goes so well with this build!<br><br><img alt="r2cjT.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/r2cjT.jpg"><br><br><img alt="XyHw0.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/XyHw0.jpg"><br><br><img alt="IuBe3.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/IuBe3.jpg"><br><br><br><br>
Looking good so far!<br><br>
Wiring tomorrow and the rest of the mods to be done during the week when the acrylic and lights turn up.<br><br>
Would you like this for Christmas?

Nice, but you really need to run those fans at 9v or 7v or otherwise they will be unbearably loud.</div>
</div>
<br>
They are going on a controller that will be stealthed away.<br><br>
The AF ones are okay at full speed but the SP's do have a blowy quality to them...i have 12 of the SP120's on my SR-2.

I just ordered some clear inkjet sticker sheets up for some detail work.<br><br>
Intake warning stickers and Military ID stickers i think will set it off nicely.<br>
Nothing too over the top mind,just some nice detail bits like the back of fans etc<br><br>
Got the rig wired up this morning so just the last bits of modding to be done.<br><br><img alt="Fn0pH.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/Fn0pH.jpg"><br><br><img alt="DqBmd.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/DqBmd.jpg"><br><br>
Dont mind the fan headers,they are waiting for a controller.<br><br><img alt="zFE81.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/zFE81.jpg"><br><br><img alt="Kzv9u.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/Kzv9u.jpg"><br><br>
That window has to go...<br><br><img alt="xicVi.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/xicVi.jpg"><br><br><img alt="UeWQC.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/UeWQC.jpg"><br><br><img alt="97etx.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/97etx.jpg"><br><br>
I have asked a few WC manufacturers if they want to get involved by sponsoring a loop,you never know unless you ask!<br><br>
XD<br><br>
So,to finish up...<br><br>
New window with no fan mounts.<br><br>
Some sort of LED strip light.<br><br>
Stealth a DVD drive in to it.<br><br>
Fan controller....im thinking a Bitfenix Recon.<br><br>
Then its on to the OS install,setup and then a good burn in.<br>
I will bench this rig,will be nice to see what this can squeeze out.

This and the 600T are 2 cases I would die to have... sadly, the wife won't let me buy any more <img alt="frown.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/frown.gif">

Maybe you can engrave a "b-neg" signature or sticker? Nothing crazy, maybe something inside the case? A subtle looking signature to finished the rig? Just a thought?

Ask Dwood for a "B-Neg" tag or badge. It would be nice in yellow or Black.<br><br>
As you said, the window should be full plexi <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br><br>
Edit: A Yellow B-Neg would look nice on the front. Not to big.

That case looks like a dream for cable management.<br>
Has the guy you're making this for given you any guides on the appearance, or has he 'let you run wild' with it?
