The build was quite troublesome, started off with a faulty board, one of the cpu pins was bent. The lining of the static bag rubs off on the white shielding which needed to be cleaned off on both boards i had. Im pretty sure i have a faulty cpu, the temps are way too high and I've tried the stock cooler, H80i and the Water 3.0 Ultimate all giving off way to high temps from what I've read online. Also had to add rubber washers to the back plate on both the H80i and Water 3.0 as they were not making proper contact with the cpu. You can imagine the anguish i had wondering what was wrong given that the cpu still gives off high temps.
Apart from that i love the look and it has come out just how i wanted, i may change the red accent to white but at the moment it seems to work with the red wifi pcie card.
Next on the list will be the Galax 980 HOF or maybe 2x Galax 970 HOF depending how my expenses go, then the build will be fully complete
UPDATE 12/01/15 - Purchased a White LED light strip for the case. Also have a red strip i can use, will play around with them see how it goes, last thing I want to do is make it look pink lol. Have also decided I will change the red cabling to White when i get around to it
UPDATE 28/01/15 - Finally purchased the Galax GTX970 HOF, beast of a card! Perfect for a white build, will of course get another for SLI. Had to return the Thermaltake cooler though, had a faulty pump, just using stock cooler for now until I decide on a new cooler, probably a custom water cooler or a possibly semi custom Raijintek Triton
UPDATE 09/02/15 - Update gallery with current build, including Galax GTX970 HOF and with only stock cooler currently, still haven't decided on what to purchase. Removed the Red cables, and will be installing white cables soon, must admit current build does seem to lack some sparkle, maybe its just the faulty NZXT logo not working anymore :P
UPDATE 21/02/15 - Well what an exciting few weeks I have had, spending over $1000 on car repairs and a trip to hospital for an op which turned into 7 stitches in my head and 4 in my cheek after passing out after my op lol. But here i am with Kraken X61 added to my build, it performs brilliantly and able to OC to 4.8 stable but dialed back to 4.6 just so it runs nice and cool. One thing i will say with the one i picked up, the LED's inside are not working as intended, even with the latest V2 beta software the colours are just not right, i have to set it to pink to get anywhere near a white colour and it still looks off, once again i have a faulty part which is becoming a common occurrence, thats 3 AIO coolers in a row that have had different issues . About 3 years ago i had a HDD fail, for about 7 years prier to that when i first started building my own machine, i did not have a single purchase fail on me, not one! Just shows you the times we live in
UPDATE 08/03/15 - Just updating my parts list, few things have changed, got a refund on my monitor, was repaired once then they could not fix the issue i found with the repair, apparently all Rog monitors have a particular issue that i could see when playing games. Still having issues with my new Kraken X61 with dodgy LED's inside, will be returning that maybe next week
UPDATE 07/01/15 - Finally added white cables to the build and added another trooper in celebration for the The Force Awakens :) Also aded Hue+ which with some amazing customization for lighting!
