If you have any advice for the structure of the log feel free to drop a line


Also I am looking for a name for this build, please drop suggestions too!


I got all my parts from http://www.caseking.de

Since this is my first build I sadly have no sponsor and paid it all by myself.

Fun Fact: I now know that my bank card has a limit of 2000 Euros.

Hey folks


Like promised I managed to take some pictures of all the components.

Some I unpacked some not.


Please ignore the date on the pictures - I forgot to setup my Minolta Dimage Z5 correctly.

Please feel free to comment on picture quality and shoot me improvments.


Lets get started!


The Case:



The Board:



The CPU:



The Memory:



The GPU:







No pictures of the Toschiba since its still sealed in the vacum bag and it is after all a mechanical drive so nothing new ;).



Well I did not use 140 Fans before, so I got to say, damn is that a huge fan.



What I found nice is the SP 120 Twinpack is a actual Twinpack.



And of course the AiO CPU cooler.





Did not unpack it yet.


here is the link to my imgur album with some more pictures.



Thanks for your time.

Late last night a bad feeling kept creeping up.

Why the **** did you order a 140mm Fan?


So I got up and checked.

Well turns out I can't fit it anywhere in the case.


Guess I was just to excited that my go-to retailer had them in stock that I did not check what size they are.

So I have to return it. :(


Sadly they only have the new ML 140s LED PROs and not the 120s.

Lets see if they can get them in.


Lesson learned: Always double check your order!

Hey fellows,


there is a very crazy idea creeping up in the back of my head.

the idea is to turn the GPU by 90°.

To do that I need to remove the PCI Slots and one of the 80mm fan grills.


Any of you have advice for that?

Hey guys.


I actually finished the build yesterday.


Still in process of cleaning up.

What do you do with the boxes of the components?

Throw them away, keep them?

I normally keep the mainbord box and put every manual, warranty paper and driver disc in there.


Pictures follow later today.
