    I have had this case for 6 months now and whilst other projects are on downtime for various reasons i wanted to build a nice gaming rig that would take the warmer temps in my room and wanted to use up some hardware so went ahead with this here is a small build log modding will be kept to a minimum as this is really just a few days work some custom paint and some braided cables

    Case: Silverstone TJ07 Powder coated in White and Matt Black with 360 Rad mount in top

    Hardware:
    CPU: Intel i7 4770k
    M/B: Asus Maximus VI Formula
    SSD: Plextor M6e 128Gb for OS Samsung EVO 250Gb Games
    PSU: Corsair AX760 with custom E22 telios white and red cables
    Ram: Corsair Cominator 16GB 2133
    GFX: R9 290X



    Cooling:
    E22 Ultra Clear Hardline
    EK Blocks for the CPU, GFX
    EK White Dual Bay Spin Res
    EK D5 Pump and Top
    EK 480 PE Rad
    HW Labs 360 Stealth
    Bitspower Multi-Link Adapter G1 / 4 inch OD 12mm - Matte Black

    Mayhems Pastel Red

    5 x Phobya NB eLoop
    3 x Noiseblocker eloop

    Mods : really just the custom front grill and the custom paint work but this was not ever really about the modding side just wanted a PC that would sit on my desk and make me happy for the next year.

    My aim was to build something as clean and tidy as i could without taking up to much time as i am doing a project for someone else that is taking most of my time


    I will painting some parts to bring it all together here are some pics of what is going on

    Oh, no, ASUS Formula waterblock is anodised aluminium, it could cause troubles if it have any scratch inside it, better to use only cooper waterblocks in all system

    Love the colour scheme and the powder coating on the case. Have you decided on colour of coolant yet.
