    Well I was inspired by New platform that hit the market. Intel x79 chipset and LGA2011 CPU With its awesome Blue and Black Finish

    The case theme is Blue, Black & White featuring The Intel Skull and a Large NZXT logo in Blue on the Back panel.

    The Case that was perfect for the Build was the New NZXT Switch 810 just so many option to choose from its a perfect modder's case, ( My review is coming out tuesday) . Another set components that will fit perfectly into the theme, is The HyperX 120GB ssd from Kingston and Quad Channel Memory .

    A big thank you to the Sponsors

    Looking forward to more mods. I like the design of this case a lot. May be the perfect case for water cooling without spending a fortune.

    But, I don't like shiny plastic on cases. Looks cheap to me. So I'd have to resurface the whole thing. ;)

    Like how you've changed it so far. Thanks.
