I like your creativity, I didn't think about that one ;)
Good luck with the modding, and let me know if you need some kind of advice, I'll be glad to help!
If you don't plan to overclock both, then stick with a single 360 rad. You won't need more cooling capacity. 2x360 rad is overkill, and more expensive.
If you go the 2x360 way, with an ATX motherboard, you won't have access to the connectors at the bottom of you motherboard (front I/O, fan headers, RGB headers, etc.)
Good luck with you custom loop! Cheers
Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. The Google translate is very funny!
So actually, for the case paint job:
Yeah, I used good quality primer+paint, white semi-gloss. I was very happy with the finish. A couple of 10$ cans should do it.
If you want a really clean job, you should drill the case rivets and paint the 303 one piece at the time. This way, you will have plenty of space to work around the disassembled case.
Hope this helps! Cheers!
2.5K$ for the computer, including the custom stuff.
Add 80 hours of work, let say 2K$.
For a 2K$ work bill, you either really want a custom PC, or have a better hardware than mine. But that's my opinion!
Gonna do a watercooling frame, from custom machined acrylic sheets. I'll start the design in 2018 :D
If I had another 1000$ to invest into the build, CPU and GPU would be upgraded for sure.
The thing I wanted to do with the budget for this build is push my modding skills to the limit. It took all of my budget and I have no regrets because I love the way it turned out.
For my everyday needs, it is perfect. It runs my entire Steam library, 1080p @144Hz.
I'm more passionate about modding than gaming I guess.
Will do, for sure!
And no, enough of Skyline. ;)
If you make it, I want to see it!
I understand what you mean. That build has been made for a competition, so I had to go hard on every part. That's the reason why it is lip-glossed as hell.
For the part list, it is from my first build and I didn't feel the urge to change a part, because that computer @4.8GHz and the 970 overclocked as well are enough for my everyday needs.
Thank you for your comment!
It's brother-in-law who took the pictures. I'll ask him for sure and get the info.
Thank you, I really appreciate that kind of comments. I will do even better for my next build!
Thank you sir. Next build is gonna be even more elaborate. I can't wait for it!
Yes, but I saw it after my initial design. I tried to not copy it, turned out good I guess :)
Around 80-100 hours, in 2 months. Was reaaaallly fun!
Thank you sir!
Haha I know, I was sure someone would point it out. I lol'ed when I posted it
Thank you. I personnally love to see all the setup behind the finished product, so I wanted to show some making-of pictures. Glad you liked it!
The paint job was inspired by that Skyline ;)
Maybe.. I have some other plans. ;)
Kinda low specs, but it runs great!
Yeah, really lucky. Let's see how overclocking will go.
Good eye ;)
Thank you sir. Glad you like it as much as me!
It was a lot of fun, you should try it!
It's actually on Solidworks 2016, and I don't have them posted anywhere right now. I could upload them on my GRABCAD account if you want to. I have the whole PC modeled.
Hope so! Thank you!
Thank you, and yes a lot of the budget was for the aesthetic and the cooling. Worth it!
I KNOW! I had the idea, but I couldn't find a way to print one or buy one really quick. But I had the idea!
Thermaltake Luna Slim Blue Led, with a carbon fiber vinyl wrap piece.
And yeah, I'm a fan. ;)
Smells good even if it's not featured!
The R34 in 2 Fast 2 Furious, the Paul Walker's Skyline. Good eye!
That's a nice build too man, keep it up!
No problem bud ;)
I bent a pin on the motherboard socket, that's what I did. :/ Managed to bend it back so it could boot
Thank you sir. I pushed myself really hard and it looks like it paid off. Glad you like it!
That would be great :D
I did my best, and I like the result! Thanks!
