Well, this is a semi-moved semi-fresh thread regarding my current Corsair Obsidian 800D build, entitled Sui Generis (latin). After being bitten by the modding bug over a year ago after installing a water-cooling setup into a 3D Aurora 570 case, I have been contemplating and dabbling in some simple modding here and there with freinds cases, PSU's and various bits and pieces here and there. When I first laid my eyes on the Corsair Obsidian 800D, my attention had been grabbed firmly by the dangly bits and pretty much rivetted to it. After some thinking, planning and manipulation of PhD time allocation, I decided that it was time for me to build a new machine, one that warranted the use of good-quality parts and the investment of plenty of time. As such, I came to a rough listing of "odds and ends" as follows; Well now, unless early new year results in some REALLY nice alternatives, the layout of new build is going to hopefully, look something like this; Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-920 EVGA X58 SLI LE, Socket-1366 Corsair Dominator DHX+ DDR3 1600MHz 6GB Corsair SSD Extreme X64 2,5" 64GB Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB Samsung SpinPoint F1 1TB SATA2 (x2) EVGA GeForce GTX 285 2GB PhysX CUDA Corsair Powersupply HX 850W Corsair Obsidian 800D Big Tower Black So, the inflatable arm-bands were off and I was out of the shallow end heading for deeper waters. The idea for this case is to have it as a flagship, of sorts, for the ZiiP Gaming Community of which I am a very content member for the past 4 years. It is also as a potential method of advertising custom builds for those in my area who may be interested in getting one done, but that is just a hopeful plan I have. What follows this post, is the build to date. And before I post more, I would like to thank Jester and all the Grey Wolf admins as well as all the other members in ZiiP for their input, all the people here ob Bit-Tech who have shown an interest in the build thus far and to Nils of MDPC-X for all the fantastic sleeving and tips on getting the job done right.
