I used to be working on a CM Storm Stryker project - I'll post the link here so that someone could just shut the thread down, delete if you guys feel like it. This is the ongoing project! It's still Star Wars themed, just instead of the "newer" Galactic Empire, I'm going for the older Sith Empire theme. >>>>>>Please delete/close this thread since it's no longer active!<<<<< I ordered a Bitfenix Prodigy, color is "Passion Red". It was the first case I saw that just ....spoke to me! I saw it for the first time in Click here for gallery My theme is "Sith Empire" - hence the Red case. I'll be adding a new custom front panel, which gives better ventilation and has the Sith Empire symbol airbrushed on it. Let's talk components, shall we? As I've already said, I'm planning on getting a good enough motherboard, so I could upgrade my components freely for the next couple of years (hopefully). I am going to, however, get the best out of my water cooling loop. Motherboard: EVGA Z77 Stinger, mITX CPU: Inter i5-3570k, 3.4GHz, Socket 1155 Graphics Card: Sapphire HD 7970 GHz Edition, 2GB GDDR5 Memory: Corsair Dominator GT 8GB, Dual channel DDR3 Power Supply: Corsair HX Series HX750 Power Supply I will NOT be using a dvd, blu-ray or whatever 5.25'' drive. I've moved on to strictly USB and it's worked out for me so far. Here are the water cooling components I'll be using, feel free to correct me on some of them if you find something better. I have no experience in liquid cooling, but I am eager to learn! CPU Block: EK Supremacy GPU Block: EK-FC7870 - Nickel Radiators: 1x HL Black Ice GTS240 and 1x Phobya 200 Xtreme (or a double GT240 Stealth < current plan, depends on how much space I have when I get the case) Pump: Laing D5 (probably with a Bitspower Modkit) Reservoir: Bitspower Multi-Option Z-Multi 250mm Fittings: I don't want to rush this, as I think it's one of the most important things. I will be going with Bitspower for sure. Tubing: Bitspower Crystal Link for the entire loop. Coolant: Mayhems Pastel Red with Clear/UV Red dye. (Mayhems Aurora Tharsis Red, will get samples of both and decide on the go) As far as case lighting goes, I'll be using UV Cold Cathode lights (White cathodes/LEDS if I go with the Aurora coolant) to light everything up. Fans: Now as case cooling comes, I'll use the two supplied fans with the case to move air inside the case, but what I'll be using for the radiators is this: Corsair AF120, Quiet Edition, Red color. These will match my color scheme perfectly. As far as fan grill go, I'll have my own laser cut (still not decided on material, maybe a suggestion?). Front Panel has been designed. I'll be using a custom panel bought from Overclockers, then sent over to Dave from Rigmods Hardware to have the design done. As far as cable sleeving goes, it's going to be red and black, still not decided on a patter so I'll work it on the go ^^ I think that pretty much wraps it up. I hope I can get my case within the next two weeks! In the mean time, if you guys have any idea, suggestions, critiques (I encourage those!) PLEASE feel free to share them. I'll keep you guys updated as soon as I have new information, components updates and what not. Cheers guys!
