Hi Everyone... Project: Stryker Well it's been awhile since I posted here in the forums. So I wanted to share an upcoming build I am doing this fall... probably take me another year to finish but might as well get started right? Okay here are the specs: BeQuiet Dark Base Pro 900 Case Intel I5 6600K Processor Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 Motherboard Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB 3200Mhz DDR4 Memory AMD RX480 8GB GPU SSD? TBA Western Digital 3.5" 1TB Black Edition HDD Keyboard - Logitech G910 Mouse - Logitech G502 Seasonic X-Series 850w Modular PSU Some other items are: Custom cables by Ensourced.net EK Monoblock for CPU and Mosfets EK Waterblock for RX480 EK Backplate for RX480 Radiators 2x 280mm - Manufacturer? TBA Reserviours - TBA Custom mods by me - EastCoastMods So for now i will share some concept art with you so you can see how the build will be modded and come together for a final end result. Here is the case and as I get 'real' pictures of the progress I will share them here. Enjoy! Monoblock by EKWB covers not only the CPU but the mosfts as well for better cooling solutions. The south bridge heatsink maybe changed to a 'Universal heatsink' - TBA And the custom cables - colors to be used in the build: (side note black, orange, black, grey, black, orange, black) Concept - I am going to wrap the motherboard tray in a "Matte Carbon Fiber". I am also going to purchase an Xbox 360 White controller and paint it orange with strips shown here: The tops of the memory will also be painted 'matte orange" The wrist rest on the G910 will painted "matte orange". The Dark Base Pro 900 comes with a "tempered glass side panel". I am replacing both side panels with acrylic sheets and a cut out in the windows to mount 2x 140mm Thermaltake Ring Fans - Orange LED To mount the new acrylic windows I am using a "two method process". It includes 1/4" wide magnetic strips on the inside border of the window and some 6mm mounting hardware to properly keep the panels in place. Well that's all for now... As September and the fall rolls in... More pictures to follow! Comments and suggestions welcomed.
It's that time again, this PC build log will be towards my personal dedicated M-ITX gaming build which I affectionately call 'PurrBuntu'. It will be dual OS (Windows 10 and Ubuntu Gnome) hence the name. I would like to take the take to thank Cooler Master USA for providing the Elite 110 for this build. Please see the following link for hardware parts: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/NocturneKittie/saved/6qGFf7. For the mod I will be getting the following from MNPCTECH: Diamond Knurl PC Feet, BlackBlack Billet Grooved HandlesDIY PC Case Window Install KitCase will undergo a paint job, custom window and custom front panel. First set of pictures show PC case broken down: front panel, Top panel, case feet, PSU bracket and PCIe brackets have been taken off to prepare for cutting the paint.
It's that time again, this time I will be doing a permanent dedicated SFF PC build for LAN events. During my last trip to QuakeCon I had a bad experience when it comes to traveling with a mid tower while attempting to travel via Amtrak, it seems that no electronic items can be checked in . But can be used as carry on if size permits, hence this build log. My next two LAN events will require travel (one in Indiana and the second PDXLAN at Oregon). Even though I may drive to both there's the possibility that I may choose to fly and take my build as a carry on when I do. Since I am a US Army Vet and decided to start getting involved with Operation Supply Drop I chose to do a military themed build. The case I will be using is Fractal Design's Node 304 in black, but will paint an OD Green. I intent to cut in a window on top panel, replace front panel and its I/O, add case feet and a carrying handle. I'll edit and add custom parts from MNPCTECH with links below. I will post updates as build progresses. In the meantime it's time to break case down.
