    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Some of you know that I had my rig Selene up for awhile doing crunching duties. It was a quick slap together and let it crunch deal when I put it together. But I had a vision for the build. There was one perticular case I wanted and nothing else would do. The case just happened to be not released when it was supposed to. It actually didn't get released until quiet a few months later. At which time I didn't have the funds for it. But now I do and also have all the parts to make this rig what I want it to be. So this build is about taking this (one on left):

    Case: 12 year old Chieftec Dragon (replaced)
    Mobo: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 (keep)
    Cpu: Phenom II 1055t x6 (replaced)
    Gpu's: 2x Visiontek HD 7850's C'fired (keep)
    Memory: 4x 2gb G-Skill Ripjaws 1600mhz (replaced)
    Cpu Hsf: Spire TME III (replaced)
    Hdds: 2x 1tb (keep)
    Odd: HP Sata dvdrw (keep)
    PSu: Corsair tx650w (replacing)


    And bringing it up to where I want it.

    thats a decent looking case!

    but why the evo?! thought something a bit more upmarket with the fans would been better.


    btw i like the look of this build!!

    The Hyper 212 is a temporary thing. It will be getting a h100i soon. Case is very water cooling friendly. :toast:
