Queenz Silverstone Raven Build Log

Recommended Posts

Since I'm doing a new build, I thought it would be cool to start a log on it for the next couple of weeks while I put it together and do some mods to it. I got a new camera so I will be sure to add a ton of pictures on top of it.

 

 

I'll be sure to throw in my own custom watercooling guide on top of it.

 

 

Happy modding guys :)

 

 

 

Stay tuned.......

I couldn't believe how HUGE the Raven case is in person compared to the review pictures and Newegg's pictures. This cage is soooo sexy it's not funny. I can't wait to start on some mods for watercooling and get everything set up. I have more stuff coming on Tuesday so watch out :).

Looks great!! I'm jealous of the box the panel came in, my 24" monitor's box was unnecessarily larger!

That case is very transformery

I would have gotten the Heatkiller block, I've heard its supposed to be the best block available on the market but its kinda pricey.

Purchased :)

 

 

I've looked at these blocks before and they were just to damn hard to find. But then again that was like 7 months ago lol. The REV 3.0 was selling like hot cakes.

 

The dtek block only cost $39 so I will probably return that now.

wow those memory sticks are a tad excessive :O I'd of poured the extra money into the poor SSD fund

I know!! My board supports up to DDR3 2600+ so I went with 2200 lol and low latency. I'll probably do some mid upgrades later on in February like a better SSD. But as of right now I'll stick with the harddrives I just bought. Plus I have like 4 750 GB harddrives laying around here that were never used for storage and backup.

 

 

I know my board is an SLI board but I'm going with a DX11 5800 series card since I probably won't ever do SLI anyways unless Nvidia comes out with a DX11 card within the next month.
