This is a mod that is currently about 85% done. I am waiting on some vendors to ship me some last minute changes, but I would still like to share this with the Zoo.

Basically this is my mod that I'm exiting the market with. Build something that I will not have to upgrade much in the future, and something that will be a pleasure of building, as it is my last.

I love the simplistic style of Lian Li's so much. I have used LL all the way back to Citrus.

This build is only possible due to someone commissioning me to build another of my Fire PC for them.

Modding for me has gone through a lot of waves. From the ups and downs of modding intensity to the schemes themselves.

So far this mod includes the following.

Lian Li v1200 Plus

Asus Z9PE-D8

Dual Intel Xeon E5-2650 8C/16T 2.0/2,9ghz

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR3 1600 OB

Crucial M4 64GB SSD

Kingston HyperX 3X 120GB SSD

8tb of Hard Drive Storage

Cooler Master Silent Hybrid Pro 850w

MSI Radeon HD 7870 Hawk Edition

Cooler Master TPC-812

Gentle Typhoon AP-15 x2

Gentle Typhoon AP-29

Cooler Master Blademaster x3

Scythe Server Kaze Controller

MDPC-X Sleeving

MNPCTech 120mm Fan Bezel

Bitspower 360 Radguard

And the pics.

Serene Teardown

Mainly the existing cooling and some cables.

this is my TC 6870. cannot up the voltage so it stays right at 1000mhz core. around 8000ppd

20120903-DSC_0016.jpg

the empty chassis. the mobo will fit exactly right on that tray. i will be adding a new midplate and other metal touches.
