Default Cosmos Rampage

I'm not at all creative with naming my builds, nor am I one to write extensive build logs. Instead, this will be mostly a photo log

I'm still waiting for a few things to show up and also decide on a couple other things to order, so the building won't kick off for a little while longer.

Couple teaser shots for now:

And speedy too! DDR3-2133 CL9! I figure 16GB will be adequate for now, still 4GB more than I currently have.

Doesn't actually light up, it's just metallic so the light reflect off it. Some of the older ROG boards did I believe, but this one doesn't (at least not that I'm aware of).

Nah, it'll remain status-quo from Cosmos II - Watercooled All I really did was add a panel-mount G1/4 fitting to the middle plate and drilled out the holes up top to mount my EX360.

I did inadvertently break the top sliding cover though. It looks like it was glued to some plastic or something, definitely not well built. I'll have to figure out a way to fix it.

Minor progress...

CPU and EK Easy Mount posts installed. Hopefully they work with my HK3.0, otherwise some choice words will be uttered when I go to install it.

Temporarily together now, until I decide upon a GPU block. Then I'll have to drain both loops and what not. I have a feeling I'll end up buying either red or black tubing as well, although the orange still looks okay but I'd rather a consistent colour scheme.




Temperatures appear to be decent at stock clocks after 30min of Large FFTs Prime95. Finally got around to using the IC7 thermal compound as well that I got from here.
