[Sakura] Pink and White Phanteks Evolv mATX build


I am working with my good friend Lavins over at hexagonpc.com to bring you an up close look at our uniquely fabulous build.  
Hopefully this build will provide you with an "offensively pink" look at custom cabling and PC building process. 
This build will feature white cable connectors, custom cables and wiring, custom vinyl graphics and a custom acrylic back-plate.
Updates will be posted here as the build progresses.  The final build will be on display at Quake-Con for those who want to see it in person when complete.

Pretty interesting, following/subbed.

Maybe keeping to the theme get like a Cherry Blossom Decal. Imo Cherry Blossoms are pretty.

More pictures of the custom cabling posted!   Plenty more to do, including custom backplate, vinyl and some case mods.

 

Honestly an H440 in White/Black with the black accents painted the a lighter shade of pink (shame the cables aren't a lighter shade of pink either) and with like an  (i7 5820K) MSI X99 Krait Edition (the accents don't need to be painted.) GPU is fine but maybe an EVGA SC+ ACX2.0+ 980 Ti would be nice. Of course those could be later add ins, oh and maybe an EVGA G2 or GS 750 watt PSU (or Seasonic X850).

Otherwise looking good.

I'd love to put new hardware in it but I think its best that I wait for the next enthusiast platform and the next round of GPUs,  Because honestly none of the new cards are very tempting.  My last build was SLI GTX Titan Blacks, but those have since been moved to my workstation so if I need the power I have access to it.  Its not really a great time to be buying another $6000 rig imo.    Once the next Enthusiast platform and cards come out you can expect a balls to the wall build.   This is really just a visual refresh.

   I'm fabulous!

@nicon My hope is the board will look okay since most of the red will be hidden, currently thinking of ways to cover the empty red slots and things like that.   We were planning to use some custom vinyl on the PSU to make it match.   

 

And yes that is a Fed-3 RF.  I think I shot that with either my M9 or 70D
