I hope you've enjoyed my last posts and that I'm not boring you.
Just say when and I'll stop.

Thank you all for bearing with me.

Cheers,

Never boring Juan just shows what talent you have.

Thanks a bunch, really.

John, you are absolutely right about the white tubes looking kind of "bare".
We just ordered some black and dark grey Primochill springs to put around the white tubing.
Will post some pics when we put something together with them.

Not sure about what you mean about the orange cables. You mean using gray instead to match the springs on the tubing?
That would actually look amazing!
Will try to find some dark gray braided cables to give it a try.
Great tip. Thanks a lot!

Yes mate the bunches of smal ones that come from the rear.

Now I am very pedantic when it comes to colour inside I am a blue / black soul and I even went to the trouble of making some cloth tape by spraying some dark material with semi matt black paint to wrap around the 24 pin connector, the front panel and PCi cables so that in my Ivy there is only black and blue apart from two red SATAs I kept for ID'ing the front dock drives. Tiny specs can be touched with some matt black or whatever colour nail varnish.
Overkill I guess you could call it but I just like it that way

Mind you yours are something else
That is one extremely nice case you have going John.
I like the blue/black color scheme a lot.
Will give it a try as soon as we get the chance.
Thanks a bunch!

Juan, those are fantastic work. Very well done. Your cable management is excellent. I know of no way to improve it. I wish I could do as well as you. I notice you always use the Switch 810. Very wise to use the same case. You can get tube and cable management down to a fine science. Always using basically the same components will enable you to build a lot of rigs faster. Very smart.

Don't worry, you can never post too many pictures in this thread. BTW, what 360 rads are you using? There's no way I could put fans underneath mine. You have done that and had space to spare. Very well done.

Hi Steve, how are you?

Thank you very much for your comments.

You are completely right about the cases. For the time being we are sticking to 3 NZXT models: Switch 810, Phantom 820 (we've only done 4 because they are way too expensive down here, but the frame is exactly the same than the Switch, so it is kind of easy to work with them) and the Phantom 410. Next week we'll start work on a couple of Phantom 630s. I'll let you know how we find them.
We will also be receiving some Vampires and Agustas by Raidmax, which seem to be a nice and cheaper alternative to NZXT's big boys. We'll see.

Regarding the 360 rads, the one on the white case with the red dragon on the side (the one painted white) is a Magicool 360 Ultra, which thickness wise is something in between XSPC's EX and RX series.
On the gray Switch case (the one with red cabling and coolant) it is a Magicool 360 Slim, which actually rests on top of the frame, just below the removable "vane" top, so it is hidden from view.
So far we've been using XSPC's RS, EX and RX series without any issues and Magicool's Slim and Ultra series with same results.
Next week we will have to fit a couple of Phobya G-Changer 420s in two different builds using Switchs. I believe this is going to prove challenging. Will report back with some pics.

Once again, thanks a lot Steve; for everything...

Cheers,

J

Thank you very much for you comments, you are too kind.


Alan, how are you? It's been a while.
We'll send you a job application form when we open a branch up there.

John, will send you one to you too when when we expand to Ozland.

Steve, in this solemn act we appoint you Honorary Gaming Chairman of the Board!

It might sound as an adolescent comment (like proposing that we rent a house by the sea and that we all move in together) but I really wish we lived any closer and that we could set up shop together. We'd be outselling Newegg in no time!

Till you all move to Argentina, we all move Down Under, we all join Paul in the UK or you yanks help us three get green cards, all I can do is share pics here.
Or maybe make you all honorary members of the board! You'd be, of course, reporting to Steve. Hhahahha!

No, seriously, I'm so happy with the way things turned out! Six months ago I had never owned a desktop computer, not to mention a high end gaming rig. Now, with your help, advice and encouragement I own a performance shop. A very small one at that, but who knows what the future might bring, right?

Later today I'll upload some pics.

Cheers guys!

Hi Juan,

Things are all good here mate
Yes it's been a while, I don't think I have done any upgrades since we spoke last. I have been very good and stopped spending money stuff I don't really need lol.

Love the new rigs you posted.

Only mod I have done recently (today) is to apply the TUF sticker that came with my Sabertooth.

Paul.

Edit: Just changed the sticker positioning slightly as I was not happy with it. It is now pic 2 on the right.

Juan of all the rigs I think I like the air cooled one the most. It's clean and simple.
On the Red dragon, how is that applied? I see no joint between the window and metal panel.

Hey Paul!

I'm not sure you had the Sabertooth last time I checked in.
Either way, it is a great board. Smartest design features we've encountered so far. Not that we've used a huge selection of boards -so far we've mainly installed ROG and G1 Killer series boards- but the Sabertooth Z77 is my favorite design so far.

I like your Sabertooth sig a lot, and the new TUF one Boobbah just made for you, too.

BTW, your rig is looking very cool!

Thanks a lot for your comments friend. I'm really having a great time. I hope it shows in the rigs we build.


Gary,

I know exactly what you mean regarding the simple, clean and understated looks of the air cooled rig. I like it too.
I think the Sabertooth Z77 greatly contributes to it's simplicity and functionality. It is a great "hybrid" rig too. The guy who owns it mainly uses it for music production, hence the silent fans, the "pro" board and the 32GB of RAM, but he's also kind of a BF3 buff, hence the GTX680. One of my favorite rigs so far.


Now that we are talking boards and cards, has anyone tried the new ROG or G1 Killer 1150 boards out? If so, with which processors?
How about the new GTX780? Anyone?

Cheers,

J

Maybe I didn't have the Sabertooth, It's been in for a couple of months at least, I also relocated the Antec 920 from the rear of the case to the front to clean the look up as it was quite a bulky thing with 2 fans fitted and covered a lot of the board.

Yes I agree the Sabertooth is a fantastic board, it overclocks well and looks fantastic.

Paul.
