[WIP] Project Slowly but Surely

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i am going to be upgrading my computer over this year and by next year i will have this: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/nixproducer/saved/35g4

i am not going to be doing a lot of typing most of it is going to be pictures... so enjoy :)

I got the R4,next is a hyper 212 evo and an ssd and another case fan, havent totally decided yet but then i am going to get my motherboard and processor, and finally a new gpu

and do not say "why did you just save it up and but it at once" the answer is because i wanted the new case and so i came up with this idea so here it goes and P.S sorry for the quality taken with my iphone 4

Before:

gotta love the R4. Good luck with it. Im in the process of upgrading to but my time frame is A LOT bigger.  Are you going to still mount the SSD's on the back seeing as you have to take out the motherboard to do it? Also if you take out that top HDD cage and put two fans in the  front, one in the back exhausting you can get pretty good temps with basically no noise on the medium fan speed setting.  Just some thoughts.

 

EDIT - Also maybe consider either corsair fans Fractal fans (im going mental) or painting your white drive tray things blue. Not sure if black white and blue would look all that great.


Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

As I get older I get angrier more cynical, meaner. I feel some warning posts coming. I feel a ban coming. I was warned.

not going to mount it on the back going to put it in the hard drive cage, and i was going to take the top one out but the sata cable for my hard drive was too short, so i had to put it back in there and do that the cables are so short i cant even use a optical drive because of it, if you know of any longer sata cables, let me know

I used these in a build before. I quite like the 90 degree thing but I can't find any on amazon though, ill keep searching. They come in 24 inch and 12 inch (conversions off the top of my head)

Black and Blue. Me gusta. :D

yeah originally i was going to go black and red but i just saw way too many black and red builds and the color scheme just faded on me, and blue is my favorite color anyways, but cant wait till i get it all finished, it will look much better

Yeah, I think black and red is the most popular color scheme for PCs....

i am planning on spray painting the drive trays and the pci slot covers blue, but for the fans i am getting a Sp120 for the back and some noctuas in the front
