Project [E] - update 04/10 - Carbon Fiber Finish Done
Welcome to my new build thread all the way from India...the land of snake charmers, elephants and cows on the roads...and outsourcing...
After Evolution 1 (link in sig), I admit, I am completely addicted to water cooling and upgrading (damn these forums). And the result of that is.....
And I keep justifying it to myself, saying that every man needs a hobby, which can block out the tensions of daily life.
With that introduction out of the way, lets get down to what we plan to do in Project [E] 2. Project [E] 2 is going to be pretty long drawn out, as I want to take the time to think and work on each and every part before I go for the final build.
As of now only a few of the main components are with me and some more is on the way. The rest of the parts will be ordered as and when time permits and as and when ideas keep coming up from you guys. So please feel free to chip in with as many ideas as possible and I will try and discuss what is possible and incorporate it to the best of my ability.
I want to first thank our sponsors for helping out on this build and for always supporting our work:
I spoke to Asus about this build a couple of days back, while discussing forth coming reviews. Asus came back to me a few days later with an offer I just could not refuse.
So enter, the two main components of this build
The Asus Crosshair IV Formula
ASUS 5850 Voltage Tweak
The second sponsor of this build is Coolermaster. I have worked closely with CM in the past on a number of reviews and I hope I can grow this relationship further with this build.
Cooler master Silent Pro 700W
We are still to decide on the chassis and I will update it as soon as I am clear on this.
The rest of the main components will consist of:
1. AMD 1090T 125 W - AMD Phenom
2. Team Xtreem 2000 Mhz CL9 - Team Group Inc
3. Scythe Gentle Typhoons 1850 - Scythe "GentleTyphoon" 120 mm Silent Case Fan
4. MDPC X Sleeving - MDPC-X International
Most of the water cooling will be taken from my existing rig but there will be a few new additions. I will keep you guys posted on it as soon as I get some more clarity and the final look and feel that I would like to go with.
I don't want to spoil the surprise, so I have purposely left out the color scheme for the time being. I think it makes more sense to show it to you guys once its in.
Please feel free to post your opinions and lets get this build started soon.....
But first need help to choose a rad. I dont plan to run the GT's at full tilt all the time and am not averse to using a push pull setup. I will be using a 3x120 and a 1x120. I need help on the 3x120 rad as of now.
