Description

I mainly use this machine for gaming and it sits off the rest of the time. This rig has been a work in progress for probably the last 3 years, with parts constantly changing. Right now I'm only 1 or two parts away from being able to seal the doors and only open it for maintenance. The last part I will be changing is the CPU cooler which should be soon. I'll be swapping this out for the Lepa 240m assuming I can mod the case to make it fit on the top of the case. Currently the temperatures spike a bit higher than I would prefer when stress testing. I previously had an i5-4570 which I've recently changed to the i7-4790k and it seems to heat that radiator up more than expected so I'm hoping the Lepa will help keep things a bit cooler. Currently only use this rig for gaming and watching tv/movies while gaming and occasional web browsing. I don't have step by steps as I built this but I do have pictures of how it is now. The only other upgrade I can foresee in the future for this rig is another 970 for SLI if I can catch a good deal for another Strix. Read on several forums that people find this case ugly, guess its not everyone's cup of tea. I happen to like it and well its my computer case so I don't really care how other people like the aesthetic look of it! Stickers don't necessarily portray whats inside as I've slapped on tons of stickers if found across the years.

Thanks I actually just got the keyboard that goes with it on ebay for under 25$ after shipping. I'll add pictures here of the colors I set it up with. Love the mouse actually though and I think I got it on sale from Tigerdirect for around 30$ as well. Not bad for a gaming mouse and keyboard set for around 55$!

You're right! However it actually wasn't me that named it, thats the name of the PC case and I'm just unoriginal. My other choice would have been big red because even though the case is not a full tower, its bigger than my other case and has Red leds... Maybe I need to puzzle over a name and come up with something more original.
