    [Build Log] Mil-Spec

    It seems my SR2 build has drawn some attention :thumb: and as a result i have been contacted by a friend wanting me to build him a nice gaming rig for his son for Christmas.

    So i specced him a nice machine that can play games all day long for a reasonable price.


    So......the specs......

    Asus Sabertooth Z77, Intel Z77, S 1155, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, SATA RAID, PCIe 3.0, DisplayPort/ HDMI, ATX

    3GB EVGA GTX 660 Ti Superclocked+, 28nm, PCIe 3.0, 6008MHz GDDR5, GPU 980MHz, Boost 1059MHz, Cores 1344, w/ Backplate

    Corsair Vengeance C70 High Airflow Military Green Mid Tower Gaming Case with Side Window USB 3.0 2x120mm Fan w/o PSU

    750W Corsair Pro Series Gold AX750, Modular, 90% Eff', 80 PLUS Gold, SLI/CrossFire, EPS 12V, Quiet Fan, ATX, PSU

    Corsair Memory Vengeance Green 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Quad Channel

    The case is having some minor modding done,panel swap for a clear window with no fan mounts,lights....all your favorites.

    This is not going to be a drawn out log,this will be turned around in a week or so.:thumb: (EDIT:maybe a bit longer as there is a loop going in after all)

    Nice little gaming rig i think,You?

    Just a small update...

    My friend came round yesterday to have a look at the progress and to deliver a second 660Ti.

    So,while the rig was out of the box,i installed the OS and got myself ready for doing the loop when the final bits arrive from XSPC.








    And Yes,there will be a Sli cover going on that ugly ASUS bridge.

    More progress.....











    Front panel roughed out before final filing






    360 rad test fit.







    Rad painted and fitted and pipe work set out.
    Still needs some alignment tweaks but this is the routing.









    D5....of course.



    Fitted and filled.





    So all i have left to do is the front panel paintwork,the last bit of wiring and tidying and choose what fluid to run.

    I am actually enjoying working on small cases again!

    The interior is finished and the loop is bled.









    Front panel is done,just need to do the final cut on it.



    All i have to do now is a reasonable OC on it and install all the bits and bobs.

    LOL! When I was first wearing the uniform, I was instructed that "If it moves, salute it. If not, paint it green!"

    Here you've made a movable object, but yet painted it green...

    Thanks for the flashback! (& the headache, too!!! )

    AWESOME build. I especially appreciate the "view through the night vision device" look you've created inside. (Too bad you couldn't have all the lettering on the components inside done in "Stencil")
    "If it moves, salute it. If it doesn't move, pick it up. & if you can't pick it up...paint it RED & BLACK !!"
