Hey Folks,

Another Weekend and another build is being cooked. This time, it's a pre-order with a blue theme colour and as flashy as possible (Make anyone that looks at this beast say HOLLY F***)

so Colour Scheme is going to be Blue and black, of course matching the motherboard/case and sleeving. No Water cooling here (less painting to do).

Hope you'll enjoy it.

Case

HAF X (Going to be modded to match the theme and may I add, DAMN that's what I call a case)

Components

- CPU: Intel i5 - 3550s
- Motherboard: Asus Z77
- Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz
- SSD: Intel XM-25 80GB
- HDD: WD Purple 1TB x 2 in RAID 0
- PSU: Corsair CX750M
- GPU: EVGA GTX 760 2GB

Cooling

- BitFenix Spectre Pro Fans (One of the best looking / performance fans in my opinion)
- Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler (cuz it just looks bad ass)

Sleeving

- MDP-X Black
- Still deciding on the blue

Extra

- Sound activated cathodes and / or LEDs

Everything is subject to change. I'll update along the way.

This weekends work:

A bit Dusty







The Goodies



Let's skip ahead and go outside



Let's fix that red box



Now that the box is blue, let's put some stuff on it



Oh yeah, now it's I see it, blue!







We can't put new stuff on old dusty stuff, can we now?



Case, meet air compressor, air compressor, meet case



Now that painting and cleaning is done, let's go inside and check what the case looks like



Looks good, but how about we add some blue to that



Soooo the fan is completely black?



Nope, let's make it a real fan



Did someone say blue?



Oh wait, blue? Did you say blue?



I thought you said no more painting!



Lies, lies everywhere



Well then, if you're going to lie, might as well go all out



Again...



aaaaaaaaaaand the final result ?



No More circles of dust



That's one heck of a rear



And the board goes in



Everyboard needs a CPU



Plastic bags ripped and Hard drives out



Dat Damn heat spreader



Better than an engine of a car



Old trusty friend



Stock? Did someone say stock fans...



Dat Design







That's it folks, till next week, or sometime this week if time permits

Some Blue to match the theme



Some cables, do you know why I'm sleeving those?



So, they're sleeved, why?



I'll give you a hint, this looks AWFUL



How about now

Sleeved some extensions, didn't take much time, about 8 hours in total



Yup, didn't take any time



This Cooler looks bad ass



So, as suggested above, stuff needs painting, it wasn't the ram or the GPU but



So now you know, that got painted, here's the whole bunch, Before



And after



PSU shroud, Spoiler, coming soon a full plexi custom made one

oh Yeah, the 24 pin cable, the mean bad ass of the machine



The 8 pin cable, I can't really take good pics with this camera yet :S



So my friend wanted something flashy, needed some custom cables for that



Cable has been measured, crimped and attached



Tested that cable, a quick and dirty shot



Yeah, it needs another one



Did I mention that something else got painted?



So, how does it look ?



Enough inside pics, problem is, sun is almost down :/



Does anyone notice that both back side panels are blue ?



Side On



Needs more plexi



Side Off



Blue blue blue
