  1. Forum ID: wolffboy212 Build Title: The Toaster Thread URL: Build Log Description: Here is my latest build. I went from giant (See previous build in the log) to as small as possible. Every bit and piece took precision planning and a LOT of compromise when putting it together. Due to this fact it has been a rolling build for a few months (picture) it took many orders from around the internet to get it right. There is a few modded and improvised parts as well as fully custom fit and sleeved cables (A requirement for a clean looking ncase m1 / small form factor). After using the final build for about a month now I am very satisfied it and believe the investment really paid off.
  2. I parted my last build into this one and that is why a handful of the parts seem odd, like the 780 ti and 4770k etc, Couldn't justify buying brand new components when I had those to work with.
  3. Here is my latest build. I went from giant (See previous build below) to as small as possible. Every bit and piece took precision planning and a LOT of compromise when putting it together. Due to this fact it has been a rolling build for a few months http://imgur.com/ecJLbLUand took many orders from around the internet to get it right. There is a few modded and improvised parts as well as fully custom fit and sleeved cables (A requirement for a clean looking ncase m1 / small form factor). Defiantly not for the faint of heart, would only recommend this type of build for the highly experienced pc builder. After using the final build for about a month now I am very satisfied it and believe the investment really paid off. I go to LAN parties often and can pack this in a bag with all of my peripherals, wires etc and only have to carry a monitor in addition. The only draw back other then its limited compatibility is how dense it is. During regular and idle use it stays nice and cool without having to run the fans and thus is completely silent 30c. Over prolonged use it can get warm / mid temps 60c-70c but it being water cooled helps immensely in this department.

  4. I bought the Corsair K65 RGB (red cherry switches) keyboard from Best Buy but had to immediately return it to get the Razer Blackwidow Chroma and here is why. Corsair K65 RGB requires 2 USB ports to function, requires drivers for even the keystrokes to work, only supports Windows. (also, does not do usb pass-though to a Windows VM). The Razer Blackwidow Chroma only requires one usb port to fully function, is usable in my bios, doesn't hang up my computer when it posts, keystrokes work without a special driver install and my only actual requirement the keystrokes work with Linux out of the box (I have to use Linux for work). To get it to work with Linux I program it using Razers software within a Windows VM using VirtualBox's usb settings and when I turn off my VM and use the keyboard in Linux the LED setting don't change. Even if I unplug it for an extended amount of time the settings say on the keyboard. As for Razers new "Green" Switches I like them a lot. They are easier to click then the Cherry blue switches, slightly quieter, just as satisfying. Because I'm using mine at work I'll probably get o-rings to make mine silent. (Linux tech support) Before you purchase, Id highly recommend going to Best Buy and trying them both out because the Razer Blackwidow Chroma with their green switches and Corsair K65 RGB with Cherry Red switches are on display there. (FYI, K65 IS 10 KEYLESS)
  5. Made it! Also the fans are off most of the time because my temps are so low.
