Le Tigre

Started with a prebuilt from cyberpowerpc on a ridiculous sale in July(original parts were $1600 retail, paid $1300 shipped to Hawaii). I immediately felt disgusted with myself for having bought a prebuilt. I did a LOT of homework and started changing things out. I wanted it to be as unique as possible. I went for the extra ram for the drafting I do for work (theatrical design). The speed is overkill, but money is not a huge issue. I dont do enough drafting to justify an i7, so I'm glad I stuck with the i5.

When I look at those prices, all I can think of is how much more it would cost In Australia :(

Fantastic job though!! :) The only thing I'd criticise is the tubing runs, but I'm guessing there was no other way of doing it.

yeah case was very restrictive, and I was a custom loop virgin, So I followed the instructions. If I keep the case, I will probably do UV orange acrylic if I can find it. I still have to paint the damn ram somehow..

 

as for the fans, I LOVE THEM. super quiet, the NZXT are a little louder, but I just keep em on low for the LEDs lol.
