Let’s cut it short, I’m going to treat myself with a new PC. I’ve been quite obsessed with mechanical keyboards after my last build “Phenomenon” ; which I’ve learnt how to mod it and spend all my PC budget on them and made my bank account cried . Anyway, this time it would be a pc which would run me for the long run, so if anyone expect me to do major or big time mod like I did previously; don’t be, well there will be but its just minor mod. It will be a classic looking build which the components itselves I’ve chosen carefully to suit the build and stand for itself. 
 
I tried to grab myself the highest quality components my wallet can  afford, not trying to be a cry baby but I have limited option on components here; besides with all those water cooling stuff which I’ve to order from the US, it would cost me twice as much if I have to pay for the custom tax (fingers crossed)
 
Won't be revealing all the components I’m going to use now, but some components will be taken from my previous build since I think they can still serves me well
Anyway, I will be updating this first post occasionally for some updates; this will be a slow log since I am taking my time to make something perfect for the long haul. Estimated to be done by end of December
 
And also. I will be playing around with my camera for the shots as well, so stay tuned!

I have it in my current rig and its still running my 1440p solid! 

I try not to upgrade for just one generation of GPU, I usually skip a generation for upgrade

 

actually raid 0 is more for prestige to me, but I heard Linus said in one of his video that he can feel the difference of raid 0 ssd in his rig with normal single ssd

have the budget and chance, might as well give it a try :)

Will try my best sir !

 

Looks great, good pictures. Love the Black Edition. :)

This is going to be so goood!

Oh btw what are you taking these shots with?

-Followed-

 

Using a 5D mark III and 50mm f/1.2 Lens

I'm pretty disappointed with the lighting tbh, always busy in the afternoon so I cant do natural sunlight shot

meanwhile if I do it at night , my 'workshop' lighting will be too yellow

might drop at local ace today and buy some white lighting

Ok as promised,
I've spent most of my day yesterday assembling the case, had some minor issue but its fixed
apparently I've mistakenly installed one of the back panel upside down and ended up unable to mount the side panel
the case in the manual is matte black and they print the manual in black and white.... :rolleyes:
 
I've a lot of goodies came in yesterday, not gonna flood you guys with plenty of product shoot photo
pretty sure you can see the product photo in their website or any other build log 
 
Anyway here's the half assembled Caselabs SM8
 
Halfassembledcase_zps2b6fdffd.jpg
 
Honestly I know I didnt choose the wrong case, this case has everything I want a case to be
well built and that full Al 
and here's the fully assembled one, pardon me for the finger prints
 
Casefull_zpsf1ccb53c.jpg
 
Casefull2_zpse94e007f.jpg
 
In the other hand I've received new package for my water cooling
 
Stuff_zps0f5b2440.jpg
 
I'll be using a rigid tubing from primochill, the fittings will be all black from primo and bitspower
and the tube will also be black though I'm still not sure whether this all black thing would work'
I'll see how it goes if it doesnt look good I'll get some other color tubes
anyway I'll be using a Di water for this time, I'm done with colored coolant staining my blocks
 
Fittings_zps69fb4441.jpg
 
The other thing that excites me the most other than the case is the reservoir
man now I know Aquacomputer make some serious stuff, the quality of their reservoir is just outstanding
 
Reservoir_zps611adbc7.jpg
 
and new CPU block for the highlight in the case 
 
CPUblock_zpsfc86e035.jpg
 
Lastly, as I've said
MORE STAR WARS
 
Cover_zpse426bce0.jpg
 
Wanna share my love for keyboard as well, this thing just came in yesterday along with the watercooling stuff
its a Korean custom keyboard with custom keyset
 
GONRetro_zps6eef8bf1.jpg
