I have had a black one in my cart for a few weeks now but haven't pulled the trigger. Looking forward to seeing the build. What's your plan for rads?

I'm not normally a watercooling guy,so I have not considered past the point that "I *might* need to watercool a 160W server chip.
If I did watercooling it would be cpu only.

With the cost of this case however , basically everything will be new and top of the line , and modded to perfection...(with the white and all)

....I forsee a lot of cable sleeving, and nitpicking.

I have a nice white case.
I have not even decided cable color/lighting/esoterics....

Right now I'm looking at an I9 7920x , when they hit....but I was also looking at Xeons.

This project is in the germination stage.

Link to the case ( mine is white) ; MAGNUM STH10 - Customizable - CaseLabs Store

Gotta say, with the i9's announced im anticipating some super big / impressive builds so im watching this one closely!

Got a colour scheme in mind already? I've always loved pastel lime green with white cases ;)

But not so such a reflective "slime" colour.

!!

I'm looking at 'forest' green/copper/white..
I'm considering some airbrush trees in fact.

Yep , I'm still leaning towards I9 , doubt I'll go more than 12 core.



edit : My case is actually being built now , I can't wait to see it !
