    Hi,

    This is my first ever project and it started of with the following Case.

    The Lian Li A71
    Side Pannel: W-75BT
    Top Pannel: T-713B

    The case was then sent to the power coater!

    As you can see the DVD drive has been stealthed and a custom fan controller has also been coated :)

    I then decided on the hardware

    CPU: Core I7 920 DO Stepping
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5
    Ram: Patriot Viper 6GB
    Graphics Card: ATI 5890 (Maybe eveb 2 if i can fit another rad in case)
    Sound Card: Asus Xonar D2X 7.1 PCI-Express
    Power Supply: Enermax Revolution 85+ (1050Watt)
    Hard Drive: SSD for OS and 2 x 500gb or 1tb in raid 1 for storage
    Cooling will be Water, but have not decided on the components yet. Problem is that i though a single 120.3 rad will be enough to watercool my beast, :(
    All Fans in case will be Enermax Clusters


    My Motherboard and braid arrived :)

    I sent of the PSU to be power coated as well, but due to the texture it had to be wetsprayed.

    The Ram arrived
