[Project log] Back to the ATX wonderland
#1

Hi guys! As a few of you might know, I switched to a mini-ITX based right a couple years ago, basically since the Bitfenix Prodigy came out in blue version.

I've decided to get back on and ATX rig because I really like the NZXT S340 case and I feel like I need an upgrade when it comes to cooling and airlfow. This is what I'm using:

CPU Intel Core i5 2500K + Antec Kuhler 950
Motherboard Gigabyte Z77 UD5H
RAM Corsair 2x4GB 1600MHz
GPU MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G
PSU Corsair HX650
Storage SSD Kingston Fury 120GB + Samsung 830 64GB + HDD Seagate Barracuda 2TB

I'm thinking about getting another GTX 970 if I ever get the chance to buy a decent monitor, since I'm still using a 1680x1050 Acer display.

If I ever get the chance, I'd also like to make a custom cooling system for CPU and GPU, but that could be a problem since the case is not exactly design for this kind of stuff, but I think I could make it work.

What do you guys think? Leaving my dear Prodigy is kind of an hard thing to do but I knew I had to do it at some point, but I'm already thinking about an HTPC for my bedroom so I could re-use it.

Sick mod, that paintjob must have took some real patience!

Loving the central placement for the motherboard, it really changes it all.

When I first saw the Gold color I thought this was going to be a bit tacky, but it's actually super stylish and cool!

You did a great work on the front panel!

[Rig] Bitfenix Phenom

Hi guys, I decided to swap from a Bitfenix Prodigy (blue model) to a black Phenom.. crazy change! Yet, I decided to snap a few shots while I was building it. I'm a horrible cable manager, good thing is that with the Phenom you can just stuff all those cable inside the PSU tray and forget about it.

This is my rig:

i5 2500K stock (at the moment)
ASRock Z77E ITX
2x4GB 1600Mhz Corsair Vengeance (one module is LP, one is not :S )
ASUS HD 7870 stock
Corsair H55 + Thermalright TY-140
Samsung 830 64GB + Seagate Barracuda 2TB + Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB
Corsair HX650

That's pretty much it, here's a few shots during the building process.

I can't wait to try that huge wrist rest! I love those. And that mouse looks super aggresive.

I'll be there with Luca, this is usefull for both my jobs, because Gamesweek, for some reasons, is a direct competitor of "my" fair, G! come Giocare.

I guess that will be an intense day!
