Hi,

This is my first proper build in which I have ordered all parts myself and constructed. Not only that but it is my first Paint Mod. So this is kinda my first. :cool:

I might as well explain why I chose to name it Evolution X, this is because my dream (affordable) car is the Mitsubishi Evolution X the car has Performance, Looks and Attitude and this is what i want to reflect in this build!:) The Colour theme was Black and Red because of many different reasons;
1. The Evo X (Car) looks good in either Black or Red
2. Black and Red together is teh sex
3. First time this Colour theme is able to be completed, away with the BLUE!:laugh:



The Specs
CPU: Intel Core i7 920
CPU COOL: CoolerMaster V8
RAM: Corsair Three way channel DDR3 1600mhz 3x1GB - TR3X3G1600C8D
MOBO: Foxconn Blood Rage
GPU: eVGA GeForce GTX260 216 55nm
PSU: Corsair HX620w
CASE: Thermaltake Armor+ MX
FAN(s): Thermaltake Thunderblade (Red led)
DVD 1: HP 1060i
DVD 2: Sony DRU-V200S-B
Monitor: Samsung T200 20"
Speakers: Logitech Z-5500
Headset: Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1
Keyboard/Mouse: Logitech G15 / Logitech Revolution MX
Mouse Mat: Nova Winner II
EXTRA: Zalman ZM-MFC2 / Primer Grey Spray / Matte Black Spray

Some of these I already have and have had for a while - long time now. These are the Speakers, Headset, Keyboard/Mouse, Mouse Mat and the Monitor.
Errrmm I think I covered everything there.

The Mod
My first mod and hopefully will be a success because if not i cant buy another case really. :rolleyes: I will be painting the interior of the Thermaltake Armor+ MX black. The plan is 2 Coats of Black Primer Spray and 2 Coats of Flat Black Spray which should do it :)
I have just received the case today and will start taking apart what I can without too many screws and taping up areas that are needed to be.
I will be going out and buying Paint tonight or tomorrow and will get some pictures up of the paint work soooon.

The Plan (If you cant see it already)
The whole build/mod will be in favour of making the sexiest case ever (IMO) Black and Red. love the two colours together and every component will follow this.

Black Case with Black Interior Mod
Black/Red Motherboard
Black/Red CPU Cooler
Black/Red PSU
Black/Red GPU
Black RAM
Black DVD Drives
Red Fans
Oh and im being Honest here..... the monitor and headset are a coincidence and happen to be Black/Red.

I will be also attempting my first proper cable management and this will be done behind the Motherboard/HDD cage.
With the Zalman Fan Controller I hope to keep the 3 fans as quiet as possible whilst not gaining too much heat.
I will taking the side fan off and it will stay like that! muha:)

I will run some benchmarks once the build is constructed, atm the delay is the Blood Rage which is taking ages to come out!!:shadedshu

Lets Hope this all goes to plan and works!

Subscribe and you shall be updated as this build comes together! Pictures and Benchmarks to follow!

Might I be able to convince you to go water? These are honestly the first CPUs I would say I'd want on water instead of air. You'll know if you ever really tax it :D

I'm going to watching this like a hawk as I'll (hopefully) be jumping on the Bloodrage bandwagon at some point.

For those of you that haven't already read it, AnandTech have a hands on of the first revision Bloodrage.

yeeahh. I also tried the Armor Jr Side Panel (without the 230mm fan and fins on teh side) and it fits but think ill stick with the Armor+ side panel and just remove the fan.
Actually, ill take a pic of how it looks:


They would have looked good. you could always wait for the price to drop, then get them
You know i can almost replicate the looks. The Head spreader thats red can be removed and painted :) I might try at replicating the performance but i dunno where to start with changing mem latencies, i wouldnt change the speed as 2000mhz is no point.


I might get away with the paint drying quickly as well as its really cold outside (in the minuses)

Sorry for bad image quality, did it quickly with my phone. And the Armor+ Side panel still has that plastic protective thing on it.

I know, and it was such a mistake imo. lol, a board that looks like that... I mean really? It absolutely should have had an aesthetic review factor. Consider how many people are going to just LOOK at that board, bust off in their drawers, and throw money at someone to get their hands on it. ;)


btw, those Corsair sticks are hot sex.:rockout:

Finished my first paint mod :rockout:

1st picture is with 2 coats of primer.
2nd picture is with 2 coats primer 2 coats matte black. Grey area on the bottom left wont matter at all as the window covers that up :)
3rd picture, another shot of the paint work done :toast:

Sorry for the bad quality btw

I've also just reinstalled the back fan for now and installed my 2 optical drives.

Next progress will occur when i get my hands on the Blood Rage!

Well, quite a while now i know. I keep having to just look at it :(

Ive just received my 2 Red LED fans for the front and back and i installed the 500GB HD into the HD cage.

Ive been in contact with a rep from Foxconn about where the Blood Rage is regarding to the UK and if itll be ages until the UK get it he said he can hook me up with a distributor in Taiwan baring in mind the extra postage. Still waiting for his reply about whats going on in the EU/UK.

The Blood Rage is the only thing that is slowing this build down. Once i have the mobo i can get everything else just like that. Was waiting to order the mobo with everything else from the same website for cheaper postage you see :p

Im also waiting on the GTX285 to compare price/performance to decide between either the GTX260 55nm or the GTX285

dood with a build like this saving $5 on postage should mean nothing. you are looking at spending almost 2k so fuck it just buy the board from one place and the rest from another, it much better than waiting for nothing, as I have heard UK wont see bloodrage for a while.

Little Update

Got my PSU, Fan Controller and Core i7 :)

Installed the PSU and Fan Controller and im still waiting on the Blood Rage :( Thats all i need now as i have decided to ditch the GTX260 :(

Reason being is its price, need to save money so i can get a car! So will wait for something to crop up on ebay (9800gtx/GTX260) or wait for the 55nm to drop down in price.

And yeahh :( the current graphics card which ill use in it will ruin the whole look as it has a green pcb :shadedshu

Finally got a hold of the motherboard!!!

Am now starting to install it.

Oh yeah, and for some reason it came in a LG box... :laugh: but all is well and the packaging was great.


Sorry about the quality I couldn't be bothered to make it look good.
Occured a problem as well :laugh: the picture with the motherboard in with the RAM and CPU all in etc i got to installing the CM V8 and realised I need to install the bracket!:eek:

Board looks good,, I notice you have no holes cut for W/M, now would be a good time for it.
