Queenz Silverstone Raven Build Log Rev. 2 (REBORN)

Recommended Posts

Long time no talk guys. Been absent here for a while and sold my other setup. Got rid of everything except my Silverstone Raven RV01 case. That's the only thing I'm reusing since I love this case. Time to get back into the computer modding scene and start off with some new stuff. On this build I'm going to go all out like last time and get some really good parts and do custom watercooling like the last time. Already started ordering some parts but not all as I'm not in a big rush to get this finished right away.

 

Received the first item to start my build off. It's a Gigabyte G1. Sniper2 Z68 chipset Motherboard

This lights up green which is pretty cool:

Included with the accessories is a front panel interface (USB 3.0, eSata, and a instant overclock button):

Obviously I haven't had a chance to try the board out yet, but from what I see and feel this is a very solid board. It's heavy and a lot bigger than what it looks like in pictures. The color scheme and layout looks beautiful. Just holding and looking at the board you can tell a lot of thought and care went into designing and manufacturing this board.

 

 

Next update will probably be next week. Stay tuned for some more unboxing and updates to my build!

Awesome board, I've seen several video reviews and benchmarks, but I think I will stay on X58 for a while yet.

 

I also LOL'd at the disclaimer on the heatsink. Who would think they would use real gun parts as heatsinks on a mobo? If someone knows enough to build a PC, they know that. :pfp::lol:

I know that board rocks...but damn is it ugly. :P

Color scheme is pretty sweet but those miscellaneous rifle parts are corny as hell.

I think you are seriously underestimating not only the lack of common sense but the general firearms ignorance of the average human.

I'm thinking it's probably more for customs than anything else. :lol:

Agreed, but you just know there are people out there who are stupid enough to think so.

 

Not to mention the people who foster some vitriolic phobic hate of firearms that wold shit a brick upon seeing this.

 

 

:pfp:

 

 

Okay, no more threadjacking...

I'll let you know when I finish testing it! LOL

:lol: Of course you'd have one. You have pretty much every Z68 board known to man for testing. :P
