Its been a couple of months since Evo 2 was completed (link in my sig). Even though I was pretty happy with how it all turned out, somewhere I was just not happy with the case itself. The HAF X is a great case, but its a bit too industrial in its looks. While I could manage a lot of mods on the inside, there was not much I could do for the outside. Life being what it is, I have been busy with a new job and some more responsibilities and even though I did have a plan to work with an 840 ATCS when ever I got the chance, I just didnt follow up on it. The 840 ATCS has been one of my dream cases for a long time. I have followed a lot of builds with this case and the amount of space, the finish and the overall lines have always kept me mesmerized and it was one case that I was sure of from the moment I saw it. Well a few days ago, I called the regional distributor, and while talking about a couple of things I found out that there is only one 840 ATCS available in my country now and that has some issues with the side panel. I thought about it and my love for the case over rode all other considerations and within a few hours I had decided to go ahead with the purchase (at a great price), with the assurance that the side panel would be replaced. So, last evening I got the beast home and this is where it all begins. Some of the parts that I have ordered over the last few days have arrived and some are still on the way. But here is a list of parts that I am going to be working with: Motherboard - Asus Crosshair V 990FX CPU - AMD Phenom II 1090T, will be changed to Bulldozer once it arrives Ram - Super Talent Chrome 2000 Mhz CL8, may change to Gskill 2133 CL 9 depending on which one clocks better for me once BD is in GPU - Powercolor 6950 Unlocked to 6970 :drum: PSU- ANTEC HCP 850 Storage - 1 x120 GB OCZ Vertex 2, 1 X 2 TB Seagate 7200.12 Controller - Alphacool Heatmaster, very under rated controller and works beautifully with Windows 7 64 bit. Can run 4 pumps without the need for an extra module On to the watercooling parts: CPU Block - EK Supreme with easy mount GPU Block - EK 6970 EN Nickel/Plexi Version Radiators - Black Ice GTX 360 and Black Ice GTS 240 Pump - Swiftech MCP 355 Tubing - Primochill Black 7/16" / 5/8" Fittings - Bitspower Silver Compression Fittings and a whole lot of other bits and pieces Fans - Scythe Gentle Typhoons GT 15 for the rads. Have also ordered some 2150's, but thats going to take some time. Res - Well, this is still to be decided, as I need to figure out if I need a bay res or a tube res. I have an EK 150 tube res with me right now, but I dont know if it will work as well as I want it to. On the mods front, I have a lot of ideas and I hope to have some of them done, while others may not be possible at this time. I hope to keep you entertained and I also hope to get a lot of inputs from you guys as the mods go on. Thanks for reading and I will leave you with some pics to start with.
