Intro:
This is going to be my third major build. The first was a water cooled AMD powered machine in a 750D with a black and red theme. My second build carried the same theme of black and red into a 900D powered by a 4770k.

Being my third build I wanted to pull out all the stops on this build. The build be a custom desk build. I love the crossdesk but the price and availability prevented me from going that route. So I decided that I would build the desk from scratch. Being in the military I decided I wanted to do a military theme build but not one with ACU or Multi-Cam pattern but one that was more focused on the special operations side of the house. Me personally am not in that community but I have a lot of respect for those that are.

Parts:
- Intel i7 4770k
- Asus maximums VI formula
- Evga GTX 780 classified
- 16gb G.Skill 2133mhz ram
- Corsair AX760
- 2x Intel 120gb ssds
- Seagate 500gb hard drive
- Windows 8.1

Cooling:
- 20x Corsair SP120 quite edition
- 10x Corsair AF120 quite edition
- EK GTX 780 Classified water block
- EK Supremacy CPU water block
- 2x Swiftech MC655 pumps
- 2x 480 radiators
- 2x 360 radiators
- Rocket Science Fittings
- Copper piping
- 2x Reservoirs (undecided on size yet)

The black rectangle in the middle is the corsair extended mouse pad. When I started thinking about this build I want to use it and I didn't want anything to be hidden by it. I have since changed my mind and I am not sure if I am going to even use that anymore. These are just rough ideas before I head over to the computer and start creating 3d models.

Well Guys the build is going on major hold just found I have to move across the country by the end of the month. I will continue to work on the renders and design but till I get settled into my new place no building will be occurring. Thanks to those who have subbed me already and I hope that when I get this renders done you guys will give me some feedback on what you think I need to do to improve some of the stuff.

Being military, I would assume he is PCSing to either Fort Lewis, WA or Fort Carson, CO, both of which are very nice bases.

Lewis is good if you get a decent unit but the area itself is amazing. Fort Hood is just a really crappy base theres a lot of crime and the units aren't great. It's just unpleasant.

Yep. I never got to Lewis, but have a lot of friends who are still in or liked it so much when they got out they are filling GS positions there. All I ever hear about Lewis is if you like the outdoors, you will love Lewis.

Hood was meh. I was on West Ft Hood, so it wasn't bad and I wasn't in 1st CAV land, but it was just meh. Killeen and Cove are crap holes, but Austin and San Antonio was really nice and where we spent most of our time.

Germany though, hands down my favorite, and I would go back in a second if I had a job offer over there.
