We still have 3 spots up for grabs and we will anounce the final 3 on Monday so you have time to add to / edit your current entries.

SrgntBallistic - really like the snake eyes theme the only thing that is holding me back is the fact that you are such a new member and we have not actually seen any of your work in any build logs etc here...... (location isnt an issue because Fractal are sorting the shipping)
Hey Tom! Thanks! I understand. I've been subscribed to the YouTube channel for a while and usually hop on the site/forums when I see you tweet out articles. I joined last year I believe just hadn't been active.

I've really been getting into higher end custom builds lately so this competition got me to finally post something! If you'd like an idea of what my build log would be like I have a lot of images up on imgur:

Here are some select images:

I would put a
1) Asus sabertooth X99 or Z97 (based on available budget)
2) Strix GTX950
and all rest of the components (processor, RAM, power supply, Storage drive) would be black/white color.

I would never go for a reservoir, LEDs.

I am not entering, as a mod I am excluded from doing so and I don't currently have the hardware or funds to fill this case up, but I wanted to share my idea anyway.

I thought with such an huge window you might as well put all the hardware on display. And with so much empty space in the front that seems to remain unused without a full watercooling loop, I figured I might as well use that space to mount the radiator a bit unconventionally to show it off and make it all look a bit more industrial.

To add to that, I've added a window in the front panel the aligns with the one on the side and if not using the top ventilation, maybe you could make that a window as well so you can have a really good look at all the hardware from multiple angles.

Lastly there is a PSU shroud (cause as pretty as most hardware is, no one wants to see cables or mech drives) with an SSD mount on the top. The radiator itself serves as sort of a shroud to hide its own excess tubing.



I love black/white/green colour schemes. My current build is mainly black and white with subtle green accents and I'd use some of the parts and ideas from that in this build, like the RAM:





The modded SSD (but with the a horizontal layout):



The CPU pump/block bracket in white:





And the GPU, although I'd have to add some green accents on that!









Would probably get some nicely painted cables in as well




Specs I'd go for would be:

- Fractal Define S
- Kelvin S24
- Fractal HP-12s
- Intel Xeon 1230 V3
- Gigabyte G1 Sniper Z87/Z97
- 2x8 GB Vengeance Pro 1866MHz
- EVGA GTX 760 2GB custom painted
- Crucial MX100 256 GB
- 2x WD Caviar Blue 1TB (One for OS X)
- Corsair RM650 with custom cables

The way I'd implement the PSU shroud and brackets for the S24 and the SSD would be by using a reasonably thin metal that lends itself to bending well but still holds it rigidity, for the radiator I could probably get away with something thicker as these are mostly straight runs.

Yeah nice idea for the dead space in the front of the case. I have this shortlisted for my next case but unless I go full loop, I agree it looks a bit empty. It's such a large window it would be nice to see it really utilized well

Much effort. Long Laughs.
