The Mean Green Machine

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I built my gaming pc and when I shared the build log it wasn't finished, the final product kinda went under the radar and I would like to hear all of your input. So here it is........ The case is a tempest 210, I added the window :D, as for the other specs they are in my signature. Also scroll down to see my most recent additions :)

 

 

Please leave feedback, with the amount of sweat and blood used to make this thing I would like people to see it :)

Should I put some of the black film on the graphics card shroud? Please let me know :)

 

Ok so I am still debating if the flame grill is the best look or not, I built another psu cover for a clean look. I also covered the hardrive in the dinoc so that I can't see the white sticker.

I might still find some ways to use up the dinoc film, I will add that to this build log when it happens :)

 

Still trying to find ways to use up the film, here is what I did this morning.

It looks very nice. That heatsink.... One criticism if I had to make one would be lacing the sleeved cables together so they don't fan out so much. But overall, very nice. Much better than my own

Is that the way the heatsink fan is supposed to be orientated? I understand that you may want to pull the hot air away from the motherboard/cpu but wouldn't it be a bit more effective if it was pushing the air through the heatsink?

That is how it is supposed to be, there is another fan on the bottom, it is sucking away from the mobo in push pull
