UPDATED! Storm Trooper build. Haswell.

*Added 2 7950 boost editions*

So, Haswell is here and I decided it is time for some upgrades.

I did want a ROG board but ASUS are taking way too long to release their boards and I grew too impatient, but... Some pictures was uploaded on the Facebook page of the Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H with the new Corsair Vengeance Pro and it just looked so damn good! So yeah

As I said, this isn't a fresh build but an upgraded one. As for the case, I would like something new, I really likethe Corsair 750D but I am happy with this case and it wouldn't be a worthwhile upgrade.

Here is a a link to my old Rig Gallery. (first time build, it's kinda ugly to be fair).

Anyway, here is the updated rig and I do apologise for the camera quality on some of the pictures, some was taken with my HTC 8X.

I do plan on removing that drive bay and adding a 3rd AF120 when I get a drive bay cover... If anyone can see some way to improve the looks, please do tell


  • Intel i5 4670k
  • XFX 7950 Boost X-Fire
  • Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H
  • 16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133MHz
  • OCZ ZT 750W
  • Mushkin Chronos 120GB
  • WD Caviar Blue 640GB
  • CM Storm Trooper
  • H100i (push pull)

Here it is now with 2*7950 boost editions (and many more pictures as requested)

I try to do decent cable management around the back and it NEVER goes my way

Now a couple shots of my mouse, headset and monitor, never took any of keyboard... Just as well as it is an old wireless HP one but you just get use to some things, same with the mouse, it's years old.

Intel i5 4670K | GIGABYTE Aorus 1080Ti Xtreme| 16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro | Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H
OCZ ZT 750W | Samsung 840 EVO 500GB | CM Storm Trooper | ASUS PG278Q | Corsair K95 RGB | Corsair M65 | H100i | WD My Book 2TB

That looks killer. I'm thinking of switching from the whole red LED fans thing (got the same case) at some point in the future, just doesn't look as subtle and sleek as something like this.

please do change the orientation of your AIO radiator so the tubes stop blocking/cut the RAM view[Looks too good for that to be in the way]!

Besides that little point, very sleek
