I love the way the ROG logo shines on your wall. Also love your Ruby poster ;)
Though I was thinking, can you really call it Dark Wind when the thing is so damn bright?:laugh:
Nice rig man, actually quite jealous.

Really nice work with the modding, customization and finishes, that's really how ROG style should be, congrats :toast:

I thought about it, but it would void my evga warranty, so not worth it.
Seeing the work you were capable to do with the window logo and/or the side panels, would it be so hard to get a template with the letters into a red-paper sticker sheet? That way you wouldn't void the warranty at all.

Anyway, your "Dark Wind" rocks, keep up the good work :rockout:

You could get a vinyl sticker to cover it with red letters....might cost $8 for me locally to get that small of a design printed.

Lol, if I manage to move to Portland this year, I will :toast:
Well, the Garden City is a smaller facsimile of Portland/Eugene/San Fran, so you'll probably like it. Too many people and not enough real mountains for me.

Thanks much guys, I put a lot of hard work into it and some chunk of change. I know its not as "trick" or "custom" like some of those really talented guys can do, but Im pretty happy with the results with what skills and tools I have.

Your build has had me seriously considering an XB. I miss having a window and the airflow would be really beneficial for my system. Ambients in my NZXT H2 aren't great during load. A build doesn't really need to be flashy or heavily modified to be appreciated here - Just clean and aesthetically pleasing, which easily describes your rig.

I think it's a lot custom, the painting and decorations that you added are really that. I see lots of talent in the art-work, yours are looking so professional, I wish i could do it instead of cutting/drilling some holes and to glue/fix things :laugh:

The HAF XB really got me ... next case is gonna be one of them. Really jealous :)

Btw, I see in your sytem specs 4.6GHz out of a 2500K with stock voltage. Mine was fully stable (Prime95 and IntelBurnTest) @ 4.1GHz with 1.236V, I thought 1.248V were ok for 4.2GHz (still in my specs) but after Prime and IBT I see that's really requesting 1.260V to maintain that freq with 1600MHz RAM. So, what's the stock voltage that your BIOS is applying?

:toast:

Ha, it looks far better than my rig, that's for sure. :rolling
Yours was looking promising in the previous pictures, any advances in your "own AIO"? (the way you had your case made me thought of an AIO disposition)

I haven't enjoyed a case like this since my days with Antecs 1030 SOHO tower cases, though I did hang onto my mini P180 for over three years cause I loved it so much.

I think it's a lot custom, the painting and decorations that you added are really that. I see lots of talent in the art-work, yours are looking so professional, I wish i could do it instead of cutting/drilling some holes and to glue/fix things :laugh:

So, what's the stock voltage that your BIOS is applying?
I actually figured out the voltage offsetting feature in the awesome UEFI BIOS as I had it on Auto the whole time. I took it down by 0.010v and now it runs at 1.34v at load and 0.982v at idle downclocked speed. I still may expirement taking it lower

TBH, I saw your computer and went "My PC would look damn good in one of those."
Alas, there are no 3.5" bays, and frankly, I like my case that everyone else hates:roll:

Well it does have the two 3.5'' Hotswap bays but for a lot of people, thats not enough. I don't see whats wrong with that case, there are FAR more fuglier ones out there

I think im also so enjoying this build because there is NOT ONE BIT of farking blue lol! I've had several case builds over the last decade that were pretty much all blue with some purple here and there and I finally just became utterly SICK of blue lol and I still haven't recovered and maybe never will lol

This was my build "Blue Fantasy" back in mid 2000 along with several others so you can see why im blued out lol. There was "Ice Chamber" 1 and 2, then "Blue Fantasy 2" then "Midnight Enlightment" then "Silent Chamber" all blue and white themed rofl! Gawd almighty its insane how many blue builds I did being a young computer builder

Another oldie from my young computer building days "Cold Fusion" The first and last Lian Li I ever owned and the ONLY Lian Li case that ever looked good IMO.

New fans in my desktop. I like the honeycomb it projects on the wall.

Might post internal pictures next time I have it open.
