Time for a small update.

I had this idea for 2 SSDs. One being a Samsung one (black and orange duh) and the other being the same but put it in a new casing. Full acryl with Samsung engraved and finally (if doable) 2 or 3 LED holes in the side to add either orange or white leds and highlight the brandname.

How do you guys think it worked out? Be honest. They will feature on the back of the mobo plate side by side. More picture of them when they are fitted and the leds have been tried.





Thanks a lot for helping me out Marcel! I know it cost you quite some blood, sweat and tears to get them done the way I envisioned it! Top work!

And I finally received my package that was sent by the most handsome man in the world :thumb: bearing the most beautiful name in the world. Thank you SO MUCH for helping me out man. :drunken:

Two i7-3770ks and 2 packages of 2*4GB Samsung low voltage, low profile ram. In other words; THE overclocking ram. One cpu is for me, one is for a friend and all the ram is mine. For this project

Well it depends on where your priorities lie. I mean at 1.65 you can get 2666 cl11 on them. But lower the clock a bit and you can go lower CL. 10 or maybe 9. It is overclocking ram since it comes in at 1.35v so plenty of headroom.

I think it is time to show this baby.

I have thought long and hard about this. I was almost sure I was going to buy the MSI Mpower. But in the end I couldn't resist. I got brainwashed by a couple of friends and by it gorgeous black and orange colourscheme (and of course the amazing specs of it and SIN's amazing results). So without further talking, lets just watch it in silence. ... :evo:

This is a rather odd shaped box...





Weapon of choice.



It is, it is..... :wth:



:wheee: :drool:













I want to thank Ben from Salland who not only gave this project a very nice discount, but he also added two shirts in the package to give away to viewers. Not sure if they will be given away here. All depends on the amount of replies from people. Thank you very much Salland and thank you very much Ben!!! :thumbsups

I really wanted your mobo but it wasn't available anymore. Then luckily this one was being released.

Yup MDPC is awesome. I do a lot of sleeving jobs for others as well and always use MDPC-X.

My appologies for the ghastly quality of the photos. My neighbour is too busy with his own stuff atm so he cannot help me out. So with yellowish light and a generic birthday picture taking camera this is what I got. Please don't hit me...

If I don't use a flash the orange becomes....pinkish :waah:

Thanks. Yeah this is an epic mobo. I personally rate it over the ASUS ROG ones by quite a margin. Technical superior.

LOL at first I was like "why on earth go for orange on the excellent black TJ-07!?"

Then I scrolled down as sore the Gigabyte Z77-UP7 board, and all is understood

Great board mate, excellent overclocker! I am sure I read somewhere that someone got a 3770K to 6.0GHz on LN2 on that board!!

Also that RAM is simply beast! Unless your going to water cool the ram too I would seriously consider some RAM cooler you can get the triple 30mm fan coolers for cheap now and I am sure one comes in orange and black too. They are noisy but at least it will help cool those naked RAM chips!

GREAT BUILD! LOVING THE WORK!!!

p.s/ Your daughter is beautiful

First of all; thank you very much for your kind words

I will also watercool the ram. I have both the XSPC heatspreaders and their waterblock coming this way.

Thank you very much, I think they have their looks from their mom.

Thank you for the idea. I had already seen it. But it will take away a lot of the orange awesomeness. So I am going to try with the stock heatsinks first.

That is the spirit!!! Mod it straight out of the box. I have thought similar. But it will also mean more tubing clutter. So I will first try it like this and expand when I think it will work. But thanks again for telling me about it

My Sammy 1.35v 4*4 GB kit. This mobo will eat them for breakfast. Aiming for 2400mhz with them @ 1.65v. I will be fitting a XSPC RAM waterblock on them when I also receive my XSPC heatsinks to fit to the bare Sammies first.



One brand spanking new i7-3770k from the United States of Americana.



EKWBs prefered weapon of choice. Gelid Extreme. So if it's good enough for them it is good enough for me. It is non conductive so also usefull for the GPUs.



The XSPC Raystorm :drool:
Ever since I first layed my eyes on these I wanted one. So stylish and clean. LUV'M





It is a used one. Bought it for 20 euros because there was one screw missing. I bought another pack of Raystorm screws for 8 euros. So I got an alright deal.

As you can see from the following before and after pictures. The previous mounting left a bit of a darker spot on it. Hukky does not approve of that :nono:



After me and my friend Mr. Brasso worked our magic it got the official Hukky seal of Approval! :thumb:



Open up and say AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH



Omnomnomnomnom



I normally use this to clean a thermometer after being used....where the sun does not shine. But I also use it to whipe any kind of grease from the cpu lid caused by fingerprints.

And after putting a pea worth of Gelid Extreme on it I placed the waterblock. Isn't she a beauty?

ps don't mind the poo-stool on the far right xD I accidentally snapped that through the lid of the box

I ordered a small package containing the new screw pack for the Raystorm, orange o-rings (as if you can see them after fitting, oh well as long as I know they are there) and three of the Bitspower fittings to be able to fit plexi tubing in them. I made a few shots of them. Pay attention to one of them looking into the fitting with the flash. You can see the two black o-rings in there which will keep the pipes in place and make them NOT leak.



















And back in the box. The case is currently somewhere else (together with my stock of parts) because we're remodelling the attic. So I will now transport this to where the case is friday (when my wife isn't working in the evening) and fit it into the case (and maybe take one or two pictures).
