Project Blank

Cover_zpse426bce0.jpg~original

Let's cut it short, I'm going to treat myself with a new PC. I've been quite obsessed with mechanical keyboards after my last build "Phenomenon" ; which I've learnt how to mod it and spend all my PC budget on them and made my bank account cried . Anyway, this time it would be a pc which would run me for the long run, so if anyone expect me to do major or big time mod like I did previously; don't be, well there will be but its just minor mod. It will be a classic looking build which the components itselves I've chosen carefully to suit the build and stand for itself.

I tried to grab myself the highest quality components my wallet can afford, not trying to be a cry baby but I have limited option on components here; besides with all those water cooling stuff which I've to order from the US, it would cost me twice as much if I have to pay for the custom tax (fingers crossed)

Won't be revealing all the components I'm going to use now, but some components will be taken from my previous build since I think they can still serves me well
Anyway, I will be updating this first post occasionally for some updates; this will be a slow log since I am taking my time to make something perfect for the long haul. Estimated to be done by end of December

And also. I will be playing around with my camera for the shots as well, so stay tuned!

You know ive spent the rest of the day asking around what new graphic card is available in my country
And this gigabyte 780 windforce is very tempting in term of price
But its rev 2 and no full block is available

If my project goes well which Ill find out by this week, I might drop the bomb on new gpus
