project Vespula Vulgaris

Hi there guys, I'm new to the forum,l so a little hello from me to start. My name is Paul and come from South Wales in the UK,  I'm 39  but a big kid, but aren't we all really ? I have only been into build your own for just over a year but have got the bug, and can't stop. This build is my 6th but only my 2nd with water cooling. My first was just a simple cpu loop on an i5 3570k.

 

 

Onto the build it started with a win on another forum of the Fractal Design R4 XL, and the plan was just to add my Z77 kit, but another lucky win from a local prize draw landed me a £1000 Amazon voucher, so I decided to treat myself to the 4670k and in my opinion the best looking motherboard on the Z87 platform, the beast that is the MSI XPower.

 

 

There wasn't much to really mod with the case except for a roof mod to hold a 360 rad, and I had to remove the drive bays to mount the Monsta 420 up front, along with the roof mod, I had to add a 3 x 120mm rad shroud to be able to go push pull. The only other mod I have planed is the door, it needs a nice big window, but the acrylic is on it's way as wee speak. enough of me some pics, they aren't the best my oh killed my dslr ( silly cow ) so I'm relying on my S4.

awesome rig!

 

did you perchance steal the name from Pabz0r?

No mate I now of the rig though. My nickname for the past 30 years has been Stungy, and my last build was in a Phantom 630 with the Z77 Mpower also black and yellow called the Phantom Bee, and I was stuck for a name for this build so I just Googled Latin name for bee and it was Apis, and I didn't like the sound of that so next i tried wasp, and that I liked Vespula Vulgaris. I thought I was being original until I saw his build 

 

The bower button is just above the door up top, I need to add some better pics of the finished build, I'll take it outside in the AM, my shroud might be here then too.
