HTPC Prodigy "Senshi"

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hy so this is my first buildlog :) I will do this is in buildstages as budget is a problem and I don't know yet how much power I really want in this build.

 

The idea was to create a small rig with decent outside and quality inside meant to use for daily surfing the net or later upgrade to a fulltrigger gaming system. So expect the first stage to be "boring" if you searched for something outstanding. 

 

OK. I warned you :P Let's start this thing.

Fans: Bitfenix Spectre on top, BeQuiet PureWings 2 for front and rear exhaust. arrived

 

HDD: WD Blue 1TB 64mb cache arrived

 

GPU: None. Not needed in this stage lol air is here

Followed, I love prodigy builds. Just a guess, but does the 'secret item' have something to do with an actual katana?

SAO, because I love SAO O.o

 

But the Lucky one doesn't really fit with the name for your build, SIN one is probably the best if you want to stick close to your builds name but other than that, I'd still pick SAO c:

Yepp sidepanels are messed, blame my photoshop level :) The girl is a fanart of Blood C. So far I haven't got better ideas for the side decals on this one.

Thanks :) Name can be changed if so. The first idea was to go with sin but then this images popped up. Zerochan is truly evil.

Well, if you don't mind me giving you ideas for a name if you would change :P

You could name it "Senshi" (Warrior, Combatant, Soldier in Japanese), would fit for both SIN and SAO, don't know that much about Lucky. :S

Not too bad imo :P

Though of something for Lucky Star one, (not that innovative either xD)

But, you could also use the Japanese word for Star, Sutā or Hoshi, both meaning "star"

Blame this guy Unbr34k4bl3 My favourite fagget suggested it so it's on the list LOL. The crowd has been voted so it's S.A.O themed. I'm in contact with a few companys researching the price for the decals.

 

Other parts are bought but the reseller is out of stock with the asus board. So far I'm waiting for them handling the ticket as they where a good sellingpartner in the past.
