The orange box

Hi guys,

Been wanting to build myself an all out gaming rig for a while now, something small but powerful, a little pocket rocket you could say, not sure of the full spec yet but have started with these, I did research mini ITX mobos and yeah there is a fair amount of choice out there but nothing that really caught my eye on the power side of things however i did settle on this as a start, the mobo will be a P8Z77 I Deluxe neatly packed within a Bitfenix Prodigy Mini ITX Case, my next sure purchase will definitely be the be an i5 3570K. The rest I am not so sure as of yet, all advice welcome of course. I was actually contemplating getting the dremel out the side panel and window this case up

again all advice welcome

Kaney.

looks good man, though dont put a window in the sides, one will be covered by the gpu (+ youll loose its airflow grill) and the other will see the backside of the power delivery board on the side of the mb.

a top window maybe?

btw, orange case looks GG

Thanks Choklitmlk,

the case is a bit of in joke at work as ORANGE is sort our company colour, bit of take but I like the case

And yeah you are right when the GPU is installed all you will see is a wall of GPU

Time to think about some good airflow and maybe an H80i exhausting !


Cheers

cheers guys,

I didn't realise that an orange build would be remotely popular

.......... anyway orange parts theme not that easy for me to find at the moment, was looking at G-Skill ARES Ram (orange) and maybe as a treat for me for christmas I was thinking a GTX680 ZOTAC (ORANGE).

as for mods I need to do my research as it really is a fun case and capable of quite a lot from what I have seen so far but yeah I am not apposed of a window in the roof, not sure yet how to get this mod looking good I need to examine the case a bit more and arm myself with my trusty dremel, but yeah worth looking at and trying something different maybe.

Thing is now having the P8Z77i mobo its all very blue ! but orange is definitely where i am going

soon be payday let me get some more kit bought and then you will here me scream for more help !!

cheers guys, all very much appreciated

I'm lovin' the orange!! Didn't even realise that they were available in this country. Surprised Von Blade hasn't commented on it...

H100i in the roof would be sweet.
