    Project: HAVOK

    Hey all. New to the site and wanted to post the build I'm working on.

    I've been dreaming of building up a high-end system that I could not only game on, but also stream, edit videos and it use to run some game servers at the LAN events I run/attend. Well, this system is turning out to be a beast.

    HARDWARE
    CPU: Core i7-3960X
    Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth X79
    GPU: 2 x ASUS GTX680's
    RAM: 64GB Kingston HyperX Predator
    SSD: 2 x Kingston HyperX SSD's in RAID0
    Storage: 4 x WD 1TB Raptors in RAID0
    Cooling: Corsair H100
    Case: Enermax FULMO
    PSU: LEPA 1,600W

    THE MOD
    You may have heard of Bob Stewart over at BS MODS (http://www.bsmods.com/). His work has been featured in CPU Magazine, multiple websites and he's done a lot of work for vendors at shows like CES and PAX. His painting skills are unmatched and I knew I had to have him paint this case.

    I told Bob I knew I wanted an old school hot rod type of theme. I wanted a metallic silver base with a candy purple flames. Beyond that, I let him run free. The pics below are the final results of his paint work.

    Here's what the case looked like before he started


    Here's the PSU before paint


    Time to lay down the base coat of paint






    As you can see, its got a great metallic flake to it


    Now time to custom mix the candy purple


    Red & Blue makes Purple


    Now that the purple is mixed, its time to layout the flames and paint




    Bob figured out a custom way to paint the acrylic so the side panel with the window could also have the flames


    Here's the power supply painted with the silver and flames


    And now for the final pics of the completed paint job









    As you can see, BS Mods did an excellent job with the painting of this case. I'm currently waiting for the motherboard and video cards to arrive. When they do, I'll post the progress of the build along with the final pics.

    Thanks for taking a look at the build.

    Got another update. Got some parts and water cooling into the system. Waiting for a couple more items before its done though.

    CPU Block


    Video Card x 2


    Res/Pump/Tubes


    Compression Fittings - These things are brutal. They are really tough to install and we bent the tool multiple times. I'm swapping them out for standard compression fittings soon.


    Parts and Rad in the case. Getting ready for tubes


    Loop complete


    Leak test


    No leaks!


    Front view with Res/Pump Combo


    I'm waiting for another video card and the new compression fittings. When I get those, the build will be complete!

    I finally got the build all done and am updating this post with it now. Its pretty dang fast.







    I changed up the storage just a bit. Instead of going with 4 of the 1TB Raptors, I went with 2 of them in RAID 0 for my games and 2 of the 2TB WD Black drives in RAID 0 for my data storage.

    I'd like to thank you all for looking at the build and thank ASUS, Enermas, LEPA, Kingston, WD and BS Mods for the great support on the build!
