  1. Cheers mate, you've been a great help and given a me something to think about haha. Much appreciated!
  2. Do you have any recommendations on this? I think if I was to go to atx I would go for something like a cooler master master box or something similar
  3. Cheers man, looks good to me! Do you think this would be overkill or would you say it's a pretty good middle ground? Not wanting something way over the top but also dont want to have to upgrade pieces consistently
  4. I was after something reasonably small that wasnt going to be an eye sore mainly. Last pc I had was massive and just extremely impractical.
  5. Hey guys, Been out of the PC game for awhile, went to console to be able to play games with 95% of my irl mates. Have decided it's time to make my return to PC as I've been missing it alot recently. In doing so I will need to build a new PC as I sold my other one like an idiot. Attached above is a parts list I've put together from a local website over here in NZ. Looks to spend around the 3k mark and still get the best bang for my buck. Primarily the PC will be used for gaming. Cheers in Advance!

    Update 2: Case painting has been delayed due to the painters underestimating the amount of time it would take to complete. Should have it by Friday, however im currently on shift so progress will be slow. Really just waiting on the case to be finished so i can reassemble it and install the componants. Then comes the fun part, planning the loop and bending then tubing! Sorry for the lack of updates, just not alot of progress to be made until the case is back.

    Update 1: All parts arrived and working, there was an issue with shipping and my package was sent to my parents however everything else is fine. Parts: Dismantled the case and have sent to away to be painted, pics will be here soon. Also started painting the radiators today to much the build theme! Started putting on the gpu and cpu blocks today, which was fun and a good learning experience haha, here hoping i haven't stuffed it up =). Radiator painting: Gpu's: Radiator with fans: Motherboard with RAM and CPU Block: So, i am after your guys opinion before i move to the next step. I am wondering, should i paint the fans to match the build? I was thinking maybe blue? And if anyone knows how to go about that i would really appreciate some help haha. Thanks for looking

  14. Table of Content Introduction Hey all, My names Jason and Welcome to my build log! This is my first build log on LTT ( well for build log period really) so i hope you all enjoy! I have decided to do this build because recently i have been running into issues with my current pc, and instead of figuring out what the problem is i decided it was time for an upgrade! This time, i decided to go big. I mean im 20 with to much money and not enough to spend it on so why not. "Freljord" is a white and blue themed build, featuring my custom painted Corsair 900D and is all paid for from my own pocket. This build however will not be completely finished for a few months as i plan on expanding and upgrading parts in the future. For now, This will do and i think my wallet agrees. This is my first Hard Line build so i am taking this as a learning experiance and am looking forward to the challanges that will arise. Anyway, please enjoy my build log and feel free to leave comments/suggestions !
