    We will start the build with a Fractal case Core 1000. It has been decided that the processor will be water-cooled for this build, a push-pull configuration for the radiator to keep things cool.

    Hardwares:

    Cooling:
    ➢ 1 Black Ice X-flow Radiator
    ➢ 1 XSPC Raystorm CPU block
    ➢ 1 EK 150 multioption reservoir
    ➢ 1 EK DCP 4.0
    ➢ 2 Corsair SP120
    ➢ 2 Corsair AF120
    ➢ Custom Black Fittings
    ➢ FTW sleeves (grey/black)

    PC:
    ➢ Gigabyte G1 Sniper Motherboard
    ➢ I7 3770k
    ➢ GTX690
    ➢ Corsair Dominator
    ➢ Seasonic 1050w platinum

    Some pictures of things that will be used:

    First up is being able to fit the 240 radiator inside the case with the other hardwares. Decided to remove all front panel metal on the case to give way to the airflow. Added an aluminum flat bar to support the radiator in place.

    Painted the flat bar black.

    On top of the case is a little design; a led strip should go in that place.

    Mock up of how it should look like.

    Hmmm... Interesting. I especially love the PSU overkill. Looking forward to seeing this finished.
