    Hello again Everyone, its Time for another build.

    ((((Intro))))


    The first part of the build will be for a Local lan event later this month. I wanted to take something different to this lan and I am giving my self a really short time frame to get some items done. Like a month... So this should be a nice roller coaster...


    The name comes from me wanting to use the Black and Red theme also it just seemed to fit.



    ((((Hardware))))


    NZXT H440 Case Black and Red
    ASUS Maximums VI Formula Motherboard
    ASUS GTX 760 GPU
    Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 3 cooler
    Silent Wing 2 fans
    Be Quiet Powerzone 750 watt PSU
    Items to be named later



    ((((Fab work))))

    Make custom grills for the case
    Possibility of illuminated mid plate
    Red and Black cables set to a custom length.
    Other small items.

    To get started out.



    I am waiting on the case to show up from my order. Since I do have access to the H440 for testing and fitment of items, I made this template for the Grill design.

    How would this design look cut into the panels on the case.

    I have something planned for the plate on this one.

    I got the cables made ahead of time with extra length on them. I want them set to the right length without worrying about excess taking up space.

    Looking good!

    Put a tone for power up and shut down
    Shut down = Vaders voice "NOOOOOOO!!!!"
    Power up = Vaders respirator sound



    Hopefully there no exhaust vulnerabilities in this mod because that Rebel Alliance mod might be lurking behind a moon
