You spent $3k on your PC?
I agree, it does look great.
Fans, cables and coolers can add up pretty quickly. A full set of BitFenix cables is actually pretty pricey in and of itself.
Well almost. I broke it down:
$2765 total. And of course that's only counting whats in it now. I changed a lot of parts before settling in.
Nice clean rig that's for sure!
I wasn't sure about the GPUs cooler, but it does indeed look really good.
still got $235 to spend lol
I'm tapped. I owe my savings account about $400 still from the last round of upgrades. I am tempted by those Bitfenix sata cables though.... but that's another $30. I'm really enjoying their cables. My NZXT ones were stiff, hard to connect, and I don't like their sparkly finish as much. Plus their 8pin had some notch on it that made installing the H110 pretty alarming. The plug on the MB was bending and I could barely get my USB cables back in because the entire board was shifting down. Switched to a Bitfenix and it fit perfectly.
Oh and I forgot the ROG SLI bridge. That adds $5.
Here is my Cosmos 2 in progress
Looks badass man I didn't realize how much room was in the cosmos 2 and I have a HAF X gotta love coolermaster they know how to build some awesome cases.
That makes the RIVE look so tiny!
Can't wait to see how this build turns out. Obviously you'll be watercooled, but are you planning on watercooling the RIVE?
Little bit of the "Her's" rig building in progress. Stopped here because I have to extend the tubing. Should have a finished image in the next couple of days.
thats smart looking. did you cut the drive bay out? im thinking about doing the same and modding a fan wall, hows the structure integrity?
Damn, you sure know how to spoil a gal, don't ya?
Thanks! As for the bays, the case doesn't loose much structural integrity, but to say it isn't weaker than with the full rack in there would be a lie, but it is in no way flimsy with it gone. The chassis is from Fractal Design, and is engineered to be completely removable (the HDD racks I mean).
@ RM, after building mine she fell in love, so this is sort of the mini-me version
What vinyl wrap are you using? looks pretty good.
Check ebay for DI-NOC Carbon Fibre.
Sweet build so far!
Is there a reason why your running the tubes from the bottom? maybe that tube length will fit if you flipped the rad.
It looks like there's a res in the top of the rad.
Going to be putting this in my computer today.
Yes, one of those are very important in your pc
haha, ikid.. ikid
Usually not a fan of Alienware stuff. But the carbon fibre work you've done makes it look great. Mean/angry looking without being over the top.
CRAZY STUFF AGAIN!!!! It's gonna be sad to think it will have cables in it though..lol
After opening my case and looking at all the shit, I decided against making it nice enough for a photo.
So here's another picture of my new PSU, now in my pc.
This is PC ATM! A thread created for pc's that do not have to look nice all the time. We want to see your new fanless psu installed... c'mon don't be shy.
Recently gutted my 2nd and 3rd rigs, to transfer the components into two new cases I had gotten:
NZXT Phantom 410 Red and Corsair Obsidian 650D
Transferred the parts of my 2nd rig into the 650D, very spacious mid tower (odd that it's classified as mid, it's about the same size as my full tower Thermaltake Level 10GT
My NZXT Phantom 410 in all its glory
The insides, like the 650D, is still somewhat of a mess as I'm still checking for stability and temps before I get down to organizing the cables. BTW, I had to remove the middle HDD cage to accommodate the two especially long cards....heck, the Lightning is a tad longer than the HD6990 actually.
No real reason for it, I have checked since, still just ever so slightly short.
