    Hi peeps

    My first post on here so might as well start it off with a build :cooldude: Please go easy on this n00b :D

    This is my first build on here and my second build overall, so any advise/opinions/constructive criticism would be extremely welcomed ;)

    Quick pic of my current build before i get to my new one

    _______________________________________


    Well the reason i'm calling my build Tom's Reject is cause its the case i got of Tom (owner of ChilledPC ) which he didnt want any more :)

    Some pics of the case in current state

    As you can see it needs a bit of love but otherwise its in good condition :D

    Components

    i7 940
    Foxconn Bloodrage
    Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz XMS3 Dominator Memory
    4870x2
    850W Silverstone SST-DA850

    Watercooling

    Watercool HeatKiller CPU LGA1366 Rev. 3.0 LT
    Thermochill 120.3
    Black Ice GT Stealth 360
    2x Laing DDC 18w Pump (one with reservoir on top)
    XSPC Full Cover Razor HD 4870 X2 - Acetal (currently have this but want to upgrade to EATKILLER GPU-X² 4870X2 LT)
    EK Multioption RES 250 Rev2
    Bitspower fittings


    There are other bits and pieces i have got one the way such as Alphacool LCD, some OCZ Vertex SSD's, etc...

    My plans for the case are to have outside sprayed (black matt or gloss with red stripes and grills) and inside black satin powercoat. Top will be modified to hold 360 radiator, front will be modified so can have Lian Li bazel (to hide dvd drive) as it will also have window panel .

    Here is ruff sketch .....

    Your current build looks great, its crazy how just a simple swap of the stock blue fans with orange can make all the difference.
