    ITTLE OG "little rog" (build log)


    ITTLE OG
    "little rog" (build log)

    So it's upgrade time again, new parts new case.
    I have gone for the CM 120 Elite this time, it's a lovely little case and seams to have fell by the wayside in many people's eyes.

    The plan is to build a SFF with big power that stays cool, my old Sugo maybe whisper quiet but it keeps getting hot and I have to pop the hood to stop it dropping during heavy gaming sessions. So as the title suggests this is another attempt by me to fudge together a working PC this time based on the Impact as opposed to the Gene.

    Maximus VI Impact
    GTX 780 DCII OC
    i7 4770k + Artic Silver 5
    Corsair H90
    G.Skill Trident X 2400MHz 16Gb
    Samsung 840 500Gb
    Corsair AX860i
    My blood sweat and tears

    Yes it will! with plenty of room to spare. In fact I may go full custom loop in the not too distant future as a bloody great big
    Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 140mm will fit..... with about 1mm to spare.


    Must get more air.




    Should be able to breathe easier now.

    Thanks Chino,
    The orange is easy to cover but you can't paint rubber so marker just seems like an obvious choice.

    So I have been doing some crazy long shifts at work and the going has been slow
    but for the most part it is more or less built.

    Time for more pics




    Beautiful little Mobo

    I cant remember who came up with it, taking a pic of the pins with a camera before fitting the CPU and checking for bent pins was is great idea.
    whomever it was. Kudos




    In goes the CPU




    Trident X




    And H90, utilising fan header 3 for pump. PWM cougars are going to be controlled with fan expert 2 via CPU Header.
