Hello everyone! :lol: i'm new in this forum and i'm from Italy.I've joined this forum to follow worklogs and to share mine! So here we go: BLACK & GOLD 600T Asus Sabertooth 990fx r2Amd FX 8320 (VID: 1,1875 / Clock 3,511 MHz / Idle-Full = 19°C-55°CCorsair h100i + Gentle Typhoon AP15 120mmPalit GeForce GTX 770 Jetstream 4gbKingston HyperX Beast 16gbCorsair AX750 Gold SeriesSSD Samsung Evo 120gbSSD Corsair Force 3 120gb (cache disk)HDD Segate Barracuda 3Tb 2 months ago i started modding my case (Corsair Graphite 600t SE), by modify some small things as the top mesh, the 5,25 bay cover and an homemade clear side panel. But after a bit, i wanted to start a real project, so i modeled and fast-rendered an example to follow: Cut off the 5,2 bay, and varnished all in matte black... I started to cover all internal surfaces with carbon fiber effect film, studied a metal grid to attach the SSDs, and re-made the interior wall and covered with carbon fiber film... ...and to the grid i cutted an hole in order ro re-utilize the original 600t rubber grommet Now my rig looks like this: I also started to model the side panel in 3D for a futur remake (maybe), and i had fun with 3D compositing :P Next mods will be: Frontal intake 140mm fanBlack sleeved cables installationLED illlumination systemRemake clear side panel I hope you like my workog, and i apologize for my not perfec english :unsure:
Hardware Overview Finally I talked one of my friends into building a custom computer, so I ended up with a table full of hardwares. I tried to talk to him in to black & red, or black & white color scheme, but he is a huge New Orleans Saints fan. So color choices are limited for a lot of hardwares. Looks good. A lot of people do this type of shot. This SSD was on sale, and that is the main reason to choose it. It is so good value I even bought one for my wife's build, which was posted here before. Not a lot of accessories, only a SATA data cable which was never used. I remember XLR8 text in gold on some of PNY's graphic cards, so I was expecting the same here. It turned out to be a warm grey. Very popular choice. I suggested i5 for gaming, which is the purpose of this build, but he preferred i7. Can you read the SN? Stock cooler not in shot. Guess what this is. Household LED strip actually. It is cheap, a lot of lights, remote control to change color, cannot ask for any more. I originally recommended stock cooler and get the shroud gold plated or powder coated. He thought it would be too much trouble for me to go through for his build, so we switch to this ACX version. With protective film. Without it. Wish it was gold. Details determain design. 780 Ti is way over his budget. Again, details determain design. Quite standard right? Gold motherboard is very rare to find. I remember a gold one on Z77 platform from another brand. Is it gonna match? This is definately yellow. That's not golden, missing orange tone. Yellow again. If it was gold heat spreader, how will the performance be? Surfacing coating vs bare metal, difference is quite minimal actually. It is listed as marigold, and with this picture: Side by side, this is how it looks. Our plan is to disassemble it and use it internally. I have done this to 4 of my external drives in the past 5 years, all of them are still working fine. We are willing to take the risk. Will be naked soon. He demans a blu-ray writer. To be honest, I don't see the reason for it. Simply ugly. After I painted this, I saw this, but it was too late to return the ugly one. We were thingking about Cooler Master Eisberg 120 switching to gold tubes, but H80i was on sale and has LED. THE selling point. Reason for H80i over H100i is RV01 doesn't support 240 mount. This was purchased over 1 year ago when it was on sale. Great deal, great PSU, and it is gold. Modular sockets for future awesomeness. GOLD!! Main character. He was almost certain with NZXT Phantom 530, and I sent him a link. He then switched.
