hahaha "never settle"
that made my day lol
I like to call it "Fr0st X" but I'm open to suggestions...!
It's still a work in progress and I'm havin lots of fun with it
i never got any of the never settle games when i got my 7850...
I finished my case lighting...
Please go vote for my computer. Thanks
may add some black/white sleeves the cables (gpu/mb)
and some white fans to give some final accents.
and post moar pictures
Jesus! that needs to go to sexy hardware close ups club house for sure!
I need to get a back plate for my 780 right when they becomes available again. Hopefully at FrozenCPU. I have some stuff I need to get from there in the coming weeks anyways.
It's pretty hard to find any sleeve in my region...tried ordering a couple of times but transport would quadriple the price.
I was thinkin about paintin a couple of fans but as I said is still WIP so thx for any suggestions.
Will post moar pics as soon as I get home
Some new parts that will go into my PC:
I want to thank cadaveca, if you're reading this, it was your excellent review of this board that made me decide to go with MSI for my new build, sorry Asus, but you're too late to the game this time around!
I haven't decided yet if this will replace the 3930K in my main build, of I'll order a couple 780s to start a brand new rig... For now I've just decided to take this puppy for a ride along with my water cooled Titans
Will keep you guys posted!
Very interested to hear what you think of it all. Be sure to run stock at first and check vCPU in BIOS.
How it all started:
Opened to suggestions about the side panel
Yes, will run everything at stock first, you used one helluva air cooler for your tests, so i don't think my H100 will be any better, but today I'm just gonna put everything together, I'll be back in a while. My memory kit is not nearly as fast as the one you used either (only 1866 )
Besides it is over a 100 degrees out there today, even with the AC on I don't plan on any OCing until dawn hours
I hope you can help me later adjusting the voltages for this proc, I know you have waaaay more experience in that department
Once again, thank you very much for your reviews, and keep up the good work, it's greatly appreciated
You are right about ASUS not coming out with better top of the line boards. They seam to be behind on the Rampage thing for the new Intel CPUs. I know it just launched but you would think they would be all over the launch with new Rampage boards knowing people will buy a new CPU and want a good board to go with it.
I have a Haf 932 were did you get the PSU cover for the wires? I am going to make my own but just wanted to know if you made that or you can buy them? Thanks
I really like the look of interior of that build
Mine is a HAF X so PSU cover comes as standart.i just painted it white and left a black strip
I was inspired a little bit by your mod I must confess...
I don't know if u can buy them separately but I'm lookin for another one myself
I have the same CPU and MB coming tomorrow.
Got these today:
More hardware coming
Been in contact with silverstone since the start of this week, and now in contact with one of their suppliers, hoping to send me a TD02 - Tundra 240mm AIO Cooler, in from East Asia for me to check out. Maybe produce a review for TPU, as I dont think anyone else has done one yet?
duh the dust on that heatsink
"Rampage" is a name reserved for Intel HEDT platforms only, i.e X-series chipsets(X38, X48, X58, X79). Since there is not/will not be an 8-series X chipset, there will be no 8-series Rampage. Expect the Rampage V to be a 9-series board. Until then, you'll just have to cope with your quad-channel RAM and 40 PCIE lanes.
I am going to make the cover to hid the PSU as well as the pump and wires. I am also thinking of covering up the bay side claps with a flat side part with carbon fiber covering it as well as the PSU cover. What you think?
Carbon fiber seems to be the trend nowadays...that's why I don't like it!
I really liked your first screenshots where 2 black lines crossed the 3.5 clamps and hdd cages to finish up in the end of the PSU cover,gave the system that automotive look that every PC should have in my opinion.
Anyway my advice would try anything...if u don't like it,work it back
That is true the line idea does look better. I was thinking of doing both. Have carbon fiber but paint red lines going up from the PSU all the way to the top of the side bays. They would not be wide red lines just two but just enough to make the case pop. When the red lines hit the HD covers they would be outlines in black the same as the carbon fiber so to tie it all together.
