Hi All

This is my first build log on overclock.net.
Just a little bit about me, i suffered a work accident that left me paralysed and a blood clot on the spine, i was told i probably wont walk again, but through lots of effort im now back on my feet albeit
problems walking any sort of distance. Ive met some amazing people on the way and have become friends with someone who's son suffers from Spina Bifida, they haven't alot of money
so i decided to give him my Previous Parvum Build, which i previously built not that long ago, which is why im doing a new build. Now im supporting this charity, im going to give my builds away so they
can raise money for these kids in there community auctions/raffles and also one of the kids will get the PC, all of which comes out of my own money, so one it gives me a hobby
and two it goes to a good cause.
i'd like to be able to do a couple builds a year but it depends on funds as it takes a little while to save up, plus i can use the PC until i can get the funds for the next one.

Also i want to say a massive thanks to the Parvum boys ( Justin and Shaun ) Who Conned me out of my Money which my grandad left me , so thanks for not paying it all back after everything i did for you and your so called company, and all the hours i put in for no pay to help you out.!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks NEOXY, if we all just help one person each, then this world would be a better place, there's some nasty stuff going on now around the world, just wish these politicians and those other people would think about what they are doing to mankind.

So my new GPU came today, i went for this model for a couple of reason, 1. its was cheaper than the ref superclock model, 2. Its got a AIO and as ive got my PC in bits, due to no case, and its right next to me, i wanted something quiet 3. Resale value 4. Its clocked slightly higher than the SC model. Also got a free rainbow six game code. They also do a facelift shroud which is also coming my way which has the white logo.
One thing i will say for this card it came well packaged, my last card ( gtx780 ) came in a plastic see through flimsly protector case, not this thing as you will see by the pics, it also feels a nice solid card aswell, hopefully the new shroud will be with me by monday and my new bulbs for me lights. sorry for the rubbish pics, but was only taken with my iPhone.





Once my case arrives and i start to build it, i will be taking the card apart to install a waterblock on it.

Why did you get the hybrid if you're putting a block on it? Was it actually cheaper?

Yes a local retailer was doing a deal as a promotion for EVGA for opening up a RMA center in the UK, and it was cheaper than the base model, and as im trying to save money where i can i had to get it.

Sounds like you got a bargain on the GPU! Dazmode are awesome! I tend to order most parts from them, the shipping is a kick in the nuts but you save so much dealing with the CAD. Plus the service is awesome! Looking forward to seeing your R1.0!
