  1. Hello I recently sold my old build, and am planning out a new one. Because of the two twenty seven inch monitors on my desk, I have very limited space, and would like to do a mini ITX build in a CaseLabs Mercury s3 (with a pedestal) unless they make a pedestal for the Nova XM2. As of now (with bold indicating parts that have already been purchased), my part list is: CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k (picked it up from a friend for $150) Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Impact (Newegg had an open box for $120, so I jumped on it) RAM: 8gb G.Skill Sniper 2400 mHz DDR3 (was on sale for $52) Case: CaseLabs Mercury S3 with Pedestal PSU: OCZ 1000w Fully Modular PSU (will find sleeved cables later, purchased from the same friend for $70) Drives: (2x) Samsung 840 Pro 128gb GPU: Undecided- not sure if I want to keep my 3gb 780 or sell it and get a 6gb edition or titan I plan on doing a loop with PETG tubing and two reservoirs, as well as two radiators in the pedestal. Everything, including the motherboard, RAM, CPU, and GPU will be water-cooled with nickel EK waterblocks. As far as colors go, I am thinking a black (don't feel like paying $20 for gunmetal) case with either red or blue coolant.
