    Just a thought, maybe you should fill in your system spec's so we can look at them whenever we feel like we want to.... like I just did now :laugh:

    Hehe.. You want the specs on this build, or my primary rig:D? Nothing crazy, since i am a cheap sob, and refuse to buy 500$ gpu´s and cpu´s lol

    but here is some specs:) ill fill in the "system specs" thing later.

    PC-Beto:
    Mobo: MSI GD85
    CPU: Intel i5 750
    GPU: ATI 4870 Or 4870x2 (depending on what looks the best)
    PSU: XFX 850W
    Drives: soon to come:) cant decide if i should buy a ssd, or just a normal hdd.

    Come, 4870x2 all the way :rockout:

    I would say you'd be best with a SSD drive for your OS, and then get a normal HDD for your data/backup.

    Guna be a nice rig once you have it all :toast:


    EDIT: What about RAM?

    hehe, havent decided wether to put the x2 in this rig, or in my primary. Totally depends on the looks.
    I would like a SSD, but think that i am to cheap to buy it lol!

    Ram is yet to be decided. I am waiting to hear back from a sponsor, but i hope to get an answer this week:D

    And i sure hope it is going to be a nice rig, since i put over a year´s work into it xD

    Thanks man! I am glad that i can inspire someone:p

    Sorry to say dude, but this aint your normal sleeve job, since i made a whole modular cable system for the mod.
    [​IMG]
    For a normal power supply you would need about 45 meters if you want to single sleeve every cable:rockout:

    [​IMG]
    A big thanks goes out to MUSHKIN for kindly sending 4*2gb sticks of their new AWSOME Ridgeback ram´s!!! These will look dope in the mod and i cant wait to get them! ;)

    [​IMG]

    Sooo pritty! Green and black ram´s for a green and black mod :D

    I hope to have an update ready when i get these, along with some pics of them installed!

    Finally! I had last day on the summerjob, and starting in school next week! So wanted to put this update up since a LOT have happened since the last update!

    Now, where were we? Right about here i think.

    [​IMG]
    This is how the case have stood ever since i went to hear stewie wonder in copenhagen. I got a 4870x2 with block on it, and fittet that in, and painted the mobo back panel!

    [​IMG]
    The 2*6 pins fits so much better on to this card than they would have fittet on a 5870! There is just one downside, i miss two pins!

    [​IMG]
    Now, a little tube routing have been set in motion, but there is still lots to do.

    [​IMG]
    Now guess what hides under this hood? It has 64 gigs, and runs at aprox 270MB/sek in read and write:p I hope to be able to replace it with something bigger, better and nicer soon though.

    [​IMG]
    Now this, is what the little glowsticks that Jon made for me does! (http://lund-tech.com/?Products:Lighting_module)

    [​IMG]
    A quick shot of the side panel lit up!

    [​IMG]
    of some reason, this reminds me of a horror movie, where you see a sharp light trough a window xD

    [​IMG]
    Now, for the torture of the psu... Belive it or not, but it took me over 6 hours to make it look this way!

    [​IMG]
    Soldering the wires back together after cutting them down to size.

    [​IMG]
    2*6 pins down! 8 pin and 24 pin to go :(

    [​IMG]
    Halfway there!!!

    [​IMG]
    DONE! And i must say, i am quite happy about the final result! Not to green, but with a little black in between:p

    [​IMG]
    From another angel. I practically had to stand on top of it to get the wires inthere! Talk about a close fit!

    [​IMG]
    And what might this little bugger be? Remember the problem about missing a few pins on the 8 pin for the gfx card? No problem:D

    [​IMG]
    Just put this one into the psu, and bam! 2 more pins fixed :D

    [​IMG]
    Now, the octopus begins...

    [​IMG]
    Now isn't this the best looking cable mess you've ever seen? :D

    [​IMG]
    And the little 2 pin crawling trough the case and finally ending in the gfx card!

    [​IMG]
    And now! A huge thanks to mushkin for sending me 8 gigs of these awesome rams! I cant wait to get these into the case!

    [​IMG]
    Black and green, just like the rest of the mod!

    [​IMG]
    Gotta love them. They are so incredible heavy compared to other ram sticks i have around, and i love the ridgeback fin design!

    [​IMG]
    More pronz!

    [​IMG]
    But hey now, what is this? "Something seems to be missing dude..."
    Yeah, i noticed, but i couldn't decide if i wanted the copper top, or the delrin to for the build :/

    [​IMG]
    Then its lucky that AquaComputer was so awsome to send BOTH the cuplex kryos HF and a spare delrin top!

    [​IMG]
    Two awsome names paired!

    [​IMG]
    Now, the only downside with the delrin top is that it doesn't take 10 mm compression fittings :(
    [​IMG]
    The HF top however, does! This thing must weigh a metric tonne or therby!

    [​IMG]
    And this is how she stands at the moment! I will update again when i get the ram installed, along with the waterblock. Oh, and dont mind the vandal switch hanging there:D It will be replaced with a black one i got from nutman ;)

    And again, thanks to the sponsors ;)

    I love this build. My only problem is personal opinion. I don't like the "PC-Beto" text on the front of the case. It kinda cheeses up the thing IMHO.

    With that said I couldn't even begin to do this. So take my opinion with a grain of salt. :toast:

    If you need some graphic work done for this beast send me a PM.

    Hehe thanks man! You are not the only one saying that, and i actually made a whole new front panel file without the text, but it just looked wrong IMO :nutkick:
    I might take you up on that offer! I am not the sharpest with photoshop myself:eek:

    How it stands at the moment

    [​IMG]
    Idle. Notice that the ram index score jumped from 5.5 to 7.5 by throwing these mushkin´s in! :D

    [​IMG]
    Vantage score. I HAVE to get a new waterblock for this GPU.. Look at those vrm´s on gpu2 :wallbash:

    [​IMG]
    And a 06 score

    This.... leave's me speechless! some very excellent work put into this project, clearly see that just from the overall outcome!

    I've missed pretty much all the other pages of this thread, but that finished product has just tempted me to start from the first page till I get right back here :D
