Here is a quick shot of the basic parts being used for this build.... not everything is here, but most is:

Okay, so I've had it running on open air for a little while now... just a few pics to show of that.

I got the HAF 922 in, and I'm gonna be doing some work on it over the next comming while. A window mod is coming for sure, and maybe a WC loop with some custom acrylic work... :clap:

I know I'm gonna have to replace the optical drive.... my own dumbass fault for not paying attention as to if it was sata or not, so now, like a nub I'm stuck with a nasty IDE cable :S

I went and started doing some oc'ing... just to see how far this little guy would go.
Turns out its a beast of a chip :D

So without Further adu, here she is on open air....
Unlocked all 4 cores, clocked at 3.6GHz :D

Something's new....:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So when I originally started this build i had planned on using a different case then what I have above. I had my heat set on this little Lancool Case. Designed and build by Lian-Li, but with a steel frame instead of an Aluminum one. Its a little heavier and has some plastic, but all in all, its very aesthetically pleasing for a steel/plastic case.

I was in a rush to get everything together and neglected to snap some pics... but here is a quick, just build shot :D

So I've updated the pics.... She's in the case at the moment, just doing some work on the build log for the actual case and drawing up some plans for the potential WC loop and window/acrylic mods...
