This PC is actually a rebuild, so don't expect any new fancy components, except for one or other things  :D

 

Case: NZXT Phantom 630
Motherboard: MSI Z68A GD-55
Processor: Intel Core i7 2600 (UGHHH I CAN'T OVERCLOCK  :()

Memory: 4x4GB G.Skill RipJawzX 1600MHz
VGA: EVGA GTX 670
SSD: Corsair Force 120GB

HDD: WD Green 1TB 5400RPM
PSU: Corsair HX850 850W
Cables: NZXT White Individually Sleeved cables.
LEDs: NZXT 1m White LEDs w/ LED controller.

 

This is not the definitive setup, I might change the CPU Heatsink for a Corsair H100i and also change the VGA for another one that I did not decided yet

 

Well, enough of this. Here are some Pics of the System.

That heatsink is tiny and hurts the look of the build but very nice

Yeah, I'm willing to change that, it's bothering me as much as you. The only problem is that I have no money right now  :(

Little update!

 

 

A couple things, I got 2 GTX 770s in the mail for benchmarking and testing (I'll have to return them next week  :(). One of them is an EVGA SC w/ an ACX Cooler and the

other one is a Gigabyte Windforce OC Version. While I don't return them I'll use them in my system!  :D

The other thing is that is that I got my last sleeved cable kit, SATA cables as you can see.

Also, here is a macro shot of the sleeved PCI-E cables on the EVGA GTX 770 SC ACX

And a low-exposure shot of the PSU cables.

Pithan, I've watched your youtube video, by the way nice build.

One suggestion, you said that you wanted to buy an h100i because of the look, I would suggest that you take a look on the EVGA superclock, I like the look of the black heatsink and It's a cheaper option.

Congrats for the build!

Thanks man! 

 

And about the H100i: For now, it will be all about the looks, but in the future I may actually make good use of it, who knows when I may change the processor?  :)
