    And it continues. I'm hoping to be a little more regular on my updates, I've sort of got out of the habit.

    It looks like the pinout is straight but you might run into trouble with the PCIe depending on how the extensions are made and the SATA/Molex are a 6 pin connector. Also, just because the pins are...

    Continuing on with the hardware. The only specs I was given were 7700k processor, 1080Ti gpu, 32GB of RAM, and 256GB drive. That left me quite a few options and this is what I came up with.

    So I was asked to create a Final Fantasy XV themed case for the GamesCom announcement of the PC version due in 2018. That sounded awesome and I was looking for something to do so why not? There...

    So, hopefully the last update before final pics, just a bunch of touch up and finishing details.

    Let's start off with a decal for our SSD, even though it'll be hidden behind the GPU.

    So I changed things up a bit with the foam and went with a piece of 1/2" L200 and a piece of 1/4". It's only a 1/4" difference, but it worked a lot better. After gluing it all on, I went in with a...

    Although I'm moving right along on, details are always a sticking point on any build. They can make or break it. So to make sure I don't break anything, I've decided to call in some backup to make...
