    Hey guys and welcome to my In Win G1 project log!

    I've been busy working on my Thermaltake CaseMOD Invivational build lately and as that is getting close to completion it's time to start a new project!

    I have been very excited for this project for a while and it's great to finally be able to start working on it!

    For those in Australia and going to PAX AU, you will be able to see it in the Nvidia area with MSY as one of the Nvidia Battlestation rigs doing 4K G-Sync demos!

    I want to say a huge thanks to all the sponsors which includes Gigabyte, In Win, Avexir, EKWBs, RamCity, Primochill and Icemodz!

    Here are the specs:

    Case - In Win 909
    Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z170X Gaming G1
    CPU - Intel i7 6700K
    Memory - 4 x 4GB Avexit Blitz White LED 2400Mhz DDR4 Memory
    GPU - 2 x Gigabyte GTX980ti Gaming G1
    SSD - 2 x 500GB Crucial MX200 SSDs
    M.2 - 2 x 512GB Samsung SM951 PCI-E M.2 SSDs
    PSU - Corsair AX860

    Cables - Icemodz Fully Custom Individually Sleeved Cables

    LEDs - Icemodz RGB LED Strips

    Radiators - EK-CoolStream PE 360 & EK-CoolStreak PE 240
    Fans - 7 x EK-Vardar F4-120ER (2200rpm) White
    Pump - EK-D5 Vario
    Reservoir - PrimoChill 240mm CTR Phase II High Flow D5 Enabled Reservoir System
    Fittings - PrimoChill Rigid Revolver Compression Fitting sets of red and black, Various Bitspower angle fittings, pass-throughs and extensions
    Tubing - Primochill 1/2" Rigid PETG Tube Clear
    CPU Block - EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel Plexi
    GPU Block - EK-FC980 GTX Ti WF3 - Nickel Plexi with clear Plexi inlet/outlet and backplates
    Coolant - Mayhems Aurora Silver/White

    This will be a black, red and white themed system based around the awesome Gigabyte Z170X Gaming G1 motherboard!

    I want to start off with some pics of the beautiful In Win 909 case!

    Here is the case without the outside frame. I will start to give it a little bit of modding love!

    Hey guys!

    I took the jig saw to the top of the case and expanded the hole in the top. It came out pretty good minus a minor slip when I was fining the cut edges.

    The case is ready for powder coating now though. Will be a pretty cool colour if anyone can guess :D

    Hi guys!

    I present to you the Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming G1 motherboard! This thing is a beast and I'm so excited to have it going in the system!

    With 4-way SLI support, dual PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 support, integrated watercooling with G1/4" threads, PCIe metal shielding, USB Type-C connection and USB 3.1 support as well as an awesome multi-colour LED trace path that even lights up the rear I/O shield, this is in my opinion one of the best looking and feature packed Z170 motherboards out there at the moment!

    Gigabyte Gaming G1 GTX 980TIs to go with the Gigabyte Z170 Gaming G1 motherboard!

    I guess you guys can tell why I named this build In Win G1!

    Thanks a lot to Gigabyte for the support on this project!

    Like I said for the motherboard in the previous post, the same for these GPUs, some of the best 980TIs out there at the moment. And they are really good looking too!

    I'm not sure if I mentioned before but PAX AU is coming up this weekend and this build will be on display in the Gigabyte area at the MSY booth! Anyone from Australia and going to PAX make sure to check it out. Also I will be stationed at the Cooler Master booth doing some live modding and workshops, please stop by and say hi!

    Now lets check out these cards!!!

    Hi guys!

    Here's some of the gear in the case and also the red frame is back in.

    You can see a custom acrylic plate where the reservoir is mounted with a pass-through fitting going down into the main compartment and also a cover for the PSU area with the In Win logo on it :D

    Hi guys!

    I have some fancy looking SLI bridges to showcase today! You may have seen the Gigabyte one in the previous update :)

    That's the one I'm using in this system however I have the Nvidia and ASUS ones as well and thought it'd be good to do a comparison photo shoot. Which one do you like best?

    I think it does depend on what brands you prefer as well and also the theme of your build. I'll be slightly modding the Gigabyte one with a white Gigabyte Eye logo instead of the blue.

    Also the cables from Icemodz are incredible as always. Check out those closed combs, awesome!
