Now to the building

Here are some pictures of the parts:







First thing i did was put on the bracket for the Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo.




Once the bracket was installed, i applied my Cooler Master Thermal Paste



(The band-aid is from a lost battle against my Asus G750JW's hard drive cage

After i applied the thermal paste, i mounted my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (ie: Big block of metal)

Guess who decided to show up 2 days late? (UPS!!!)

Now that the case arrived, i can really get down to business

I installed my SSD and Storage HDD




Once those were installed, i finished up the motherboard




I then installed the motherboard and PSU into the Prodigy






Once i cable managed those items, i grabbed the heart and soul of this build....the EVGA GTX 770 SC 2GB

After i installed the 770, i cable managed and closed it all up!

Looks good. That hyper really is a giant piece of metal. I have a dark knight that I think I may try to use in my mini-itx build. Going for that CPU too, but in an SG06.

Yea, I had to change plans a bit with my Hyper. If a fan was clipped to it, it would either be blowing hot air onto the gfx card, or it would hang over the pci-e slot, so i am pulling air from the front of the chassis and pushing air out. It's still a little loud, so i think i need to adjust the way some things are atm.
