  1. Hey guys, i have decided to upgrade my desk build but i do not have the first progress for you so i will link you to my first build log if you want to see the first stages and building process. http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=276640 Hi everyone, I have not posted in a long time and over the last few weeks i have upgraded my desk PC. The upgrades include new hardware, new liquid cooling gear and new custom platforms to house all of the components.

  2. Greetings all and welcome to both my first modding project and first work log! This build has been inspired my 10 years of life experience since my first computer build, a hideous and cumbersome concoction in a NZXT Guardian (shudder). After hauling that machine around for several years to college and back, I knew the next computer I build would be smaller and easier to handle. After much searching I chose the SilverStone TJ-08E for the following reasons: -Small(ish) but sturdy case, coming in at 210mm(W) x 374mm(H) x 385mm(D), 30.2 liters -Positive air pressure in the 180mm front intake fan -mATX board (I'm somewhat of a minimalist so mATX is just fine by me) -MetallicAcid's TJ-08E build on overclock.net http://www.overclock.net/t/1353286/completed-rog-gene-v-inspired-tj08-e-matx With the victim as it were being settled upon, I still didn't have a clear theme in my mind. Eventually I settled on a printed circuit board (PCB) themed build. I'm an electrical technician by trade and I've always been draw to the aesthetics of circuit boards. The flow of traces hypnotizes me, and I thought it would be fun to utilize pcbs in my computer. In terms of hardware several things are still up in the air. I'm going with Haswell so I'll have some time to nail the rest of this down. CPU: Intel i5-4670K MoBo: ASUS Gryphon (mATX version of the Sabtertooth) GPU: A GTX 670? Not interested in SLI right now RAM: Probably will be a last minute impulse buy PSU: Leaning towards Seasonic or maybe a SFF SIlverStone PSU Cooling: Closed loop CPU cooler for now, I will do a custom liquid loop in the future ODD: On the fence, waiting for Kyle to talk me out of it :P Enough talk :D the case: Next step was to cut a window. Didn't take any in-progress shots, but here is the after. I picked up some goodies yesterday from Bill, thanks for the hook up Bill! I'm very impressed with the quality of his goods, MNPCTECH is the real deal people, believe me. The mATX case feet are solid. The foot by the mobo tray had clearance issues, so out came cutting wheel... Laying out the cut I need to get some files for touch up but it came out ok All right, I'll get some more pics up tomorrow. I'm hoping to get the case painted this weekend if it would just stop raining around here.
  3. Capitalizing on the popularity of other sleek and minimalist cases on the market at the moment--see NZXT--InWin has announced two new cases to round out their offerings in the department. While the 707 and 703 aren't the exotic cases from the company's concept line I love, they should offer a nice option to the gamer that wants a sleeker case. Modders I think will also find plenty of case to cut into here. Both are available in a black/red or white/black, no word on pricing or release date yet. InWIn's product pages on the cases: http://www.inwin-style.com/en/goods.php?act=view&id=707 http://www.inwin-style.com/en/goods.php?act=view&id=703 Here's a quick glance at the full tower 707: And the spec sheet: The 703, the mid tower option: Specs:
  4. Quickly following the H440 (by about 6 months), NZXT is releasing the S340, a mid tower again with bay-less design that appeals to a lot of people. The H440 generated a lot of buzz and I think the S340 will as well. It has a very similar design to the H440 with the built-in shroud in the bottom as well as the exceptional clean exterior. The real kicker? $70. Looks like a great value, available in black and white.
