Description

Update 1-24-17 I have since changed out the $30 amazon PCIe Riser cable with a really nice 3M one, I paid nearly $100 with shipping for it but so far it has given me ZERO issues and the silver looks kind of cool, I also took someone else's advice and sanded down the green off the geforce logo and now I am updating the pictures to reflect that.

This computer is mostly new parts with a few parts salvaged from my old rig, the sleeving I did myself for about 20 bucks from hobby lobby and I'm mostly happy with the results but I imagine eventually I will re-do them and make them all look more uniform. The performance is great and currently as follows

i7-6850k OC'd to 4.3 GHz(stock is 3.6) @1.3v (Gets about 60C) 4x4 GB Avexir Raiden DDR4-3000 Ram Zotac GTX 1070 Founders Edition (+225 core/+500 mem applied when gaming gets about 66C) Intel 730 series 480 GB SSD Western Digital Blue 3 TB HDD

The only issue I have had is with the riser cable I have some stability issues with booting and the XMP profile wont load, I have since removed the riser cable and returned it to amazon(it was about $30) and have ordered the only one the internet seems to agree is good is the $85 3M cable and will update when it arrives, here is a link if anyone wants a good riser cable

Anywho here is some pictures, I am ordering 2 of the NZXT AER RGB fans to replace the stock radiator fans and will update the pics when I install them and if anyone has any suggestions for something to fill the "blank" area below the radiator I am open to suggestions, functional or not I feel like that area needs a little something.

Hahaha you are so right I actually have a full motion mount I plan on installing it on whenever my new parts get here(nzxt g10 bracket, small AIO cooler for GPU, new riser cable)

Wall mounting it will make me a little less afraid of my yorkie getting in the case and ruining it

Cable management looks pretty great, what about adding a PSU cover. It will help cover up all of the cables coming from the PSU. Otherwise its a very nice and simplistic build.

That's an idea I had no thought about, do you have a link to one you recommend?

I've looked everywhere for one, but no luck the only thing I have found was people on Youtube custom making them. Sorry I could not be more helpful.

They are pretty simple to make with acrylic and a heat gun. There are plenty of videos on youtube.

+1 for your Avexir Raiden. Such awesome RAM. I wish they would have put a different colored LED light (or included software to be able to customize the color) on the Founders Edition cards...the green just doesn't jive with my personal taste. Nice cable management and cool custom sleeving you did there.

Check out the black and green it's really dope! And yes next plan is an AIO for the GPU because the green light is driving me nuts.

Wow! Their RAM is just so unique and cool. The AIO will be awesome. Good luck!

This is such a cool build but the one thing I can suggest is sanding the green GeForce logo off to stay in the color scheme

  • 29 months ago
  • 2 points

it cant be sanded of it is green plastic that has leds behind it but it can be removed and replaced with a different color plastic but the leds i believe are still green but i have seen them replaced with white ones

  • 29 months ago

No, there is just green transparent plastic over white led's. Just sand it off.

should be fine but techsource has a video on it if you want to check it out

I followed the video and it worked like a charm, surprisingly easy with great results! I updated the pics, thanks for the tip!

you cant just sand away plastic with out sanding away the cooler to right and i never said that the leds were green i said they might be

It's actually like a foam material, after reading these comments I watched the techsource, whole process from powering down to installing card again was like 30 mins tops and most of that was just because i was being really careful, highly recommend if you dont like the green color! I updated the pics if you want to see!

Couldn't agree more, going to put a white NZXT G10 GPU AIO adapter to replace the stock cooler because the green is also killing me inside lol

I am a little, and of my Yorkie getting curious and messing around with it. Hence the afraid part, lol.

Ok, i get the naked, but the afraid? Afraid that your build looks better than most other builds due to its awesome no case case? Afraid of dust and foreign objects coming in contact with your awesome components? These core p3 cases or lack there of are all excellent. Artwork!

Thanks for the kind words :) mostly afraid that my little yorkie is going to get curious one day and see what my cables taste like

Yeah, I too am now afraid for you ;(

+1 for sleeving the cables yourself! That's all I've ever done is do the sleeving myself, takes a lot of time but generally saves some money and I find it satisfying knowing that I did it myself.

The only thing I will do differently next time is get the little pin removal tool, for the first half I use a pair of filed down tweezers, then I switched to staples which worked a lot better but was very time consuming and I kept losing the staples after each pin removal.

  • 29 months ago

I've always used staples. Maybe I've just done it enough but i'm pretty fast with a staple, make sure not to lose the one i'm using and i use pliers to make it the perfect shape so it fits perfectly! Plus one staple costs A TON less then those pin removal tools that supposedly break real easy as well.

ooooooooo THAT CASE! Every time I see it I need to wipe up my own drool.

Without a doubt, I'll be wall-mounting my Ryzen/Vega build in that case :)

Thanks so much, really appreciating the love here I posted on Reddit and I got basically nothing lol. I have a little full motion wall mount I'm going to install it on in the next week or two.

Hi i have a founders edition 1070 ti coming and i was wondering what u used to remove the green paint from the led logo on ur card. Looks beautiful all together man! Nicely done.

  • 10 months ago

I took it apart and then sanded the green off the little foam logo piece, it’s a little bit of a process but ther are guides out there I think I found the one I used on reddit

Do you think the PSU could fit on the bottom right with the fan outward, and the GPU moved down to the bottom left. Of course with some careful modding. Im considering making a build with this case.

Wow that's a gnarly build, I'm actually planning on changing the cooler to the NZXT G10 AIO adapter and getting a small AIO because I don't like the green logo
