    Hi Bit-tech lovers :)

    Back to modding with a new victim. This time it's a NZXT Rogue, the one I've reviewed a few months ago for NOKYTECH
    Not sure about the final result, like every mods I've done, it's in improvisation mode.

    I would like to thanks sincerly....

    Are you going to go crazy with it? or will it still look like a rogue when you are finished. -either way I can't wait to see what you do.

    A small update which is not a real one, just a presentation of a part of the setup.

    The mobo is a Foxconn P35A
    The processor is a Q6600 g0
    The ram is Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2 8500

    I'm searching for a new video card, if I can't find a new one I'll use my old 8800 GTS :)



    Mobo in da box!

    [​IMG]
    The ram arrived - Big thanks to Joan from WWW.CRUCIAL.COM

    [​IMG]

    Another part of the setup arrived too - the Q6600 G0 come from WWW.DOCMICRO.COM
    For the cooling I decided to run with NOCTUA!, I have reviewed the NH-C12P a few days ago for NOKYTECH and I have really enjoyed the test result and the look!.
    The 120 mm from NOCTUA are REALLY quiet and I decided to do a full NOCTUA cooling :D
    (thanks Jakob ;) )

    Let's go with a little cut. We can't speak about "the french touch" without a frog!! here it is.
    This part will go on top of the box, better explanation in the next update.... :D

    Really nice work so far! I like the casework and the frog looks like my blue Azureus PDF.
    I'll be watching this.
