Well, I had a parcel arrive today so I can finally start my build log! YAY!
I will edit this post later with sponsor logos and such, but i just wanted to get the ball rolling!
So, without further to do!!
This is my box, there are many like it but this one is mine. My box is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. Without me it is useless, without my box I am useless.
Inside the box was lots of stuff... I mean... Crazy amounts!! so much it wouldn't all fit on my table and it will take me a few days to go through it all!!
First of all, let's have a look at the CPU block. I found 2 old friends up the attic. I will call them Jay and Em (they might resemble 2 EU Tt colleagues, but I assure you they are toys
So i chose the Thermaltake Pacific W2 CPU block.
With help from Jay and Em I was able to get inside
Inside the box there are all fittings for all the common socket types as well as some plastic inserts to allow us to change the colour of the glowing name
Come on Tt dudes, you need to lift that block up for me so i can get a better picture -.-
Cheers lads! As you can see, G1/4 fittings and some mounting gear pre-fitted for our convenience.
Next up we have these....
20 x 120mm Tt Riing fans with orange LEDs
I have used the white versions of these before and they have been great. As you can see from the spec, they are excellent for radiators.
Inside the box you get everything you need, screws, a cable to reduce the fan speed and noise and also a molex to fan adapter for if you have 20 fans and run out of fan headers
sigh, Jay and Em decided to hide. They are not very clever though.
Oh excellent. Now they have climbed on top!!! They are probably looking for a bar.
As per usual, Em couldn't handle his beer. Jay is going strong though!!!
Oooops, maybe not, I best go and put these two to bed for the night! I will be back tomorrow!

Cheers folks!!! sorry it took me so long to pop back on here I have hardly been at home due to events, weddings (where I was best man) and then hangovers haha
So I got an awesome parcel through from AVEXIR. Now a little bit of a back-story here, just to show how awesome AVEXIR were when I asked for their DDR4. Currently, they only have red and black on their website, yet they let me have some special black and white memory that isn't for sale yet it looks gorgeous!
So, the box is rather nice and sleek, simplistic and protects the product well.
Oh Great, Jay is here, riding in on the back of a lizard. I thought id locked these 2 away for the evening. It seems Em is in the toilet so won't be with us for a while. At least he is the sensible one so we shouldn't have any more pets.
I retract my status Em is an idiot -.- ffs dude. As per usual, toilet paper defeats him.
Cheers for helping him out Jay. Its a good job your here to sort him out else Em would really struggle.
Thats it, open the box then run away and let me take some product pics please!
Ok, OK. one last pic with you both in, then you have to leave. Avexir might want to use my pics so you cant be in all of them
So, this is what the white and black ram looks like from the top. I can't wait to get it into a build and see it glow.
This colour combo should be released soon hopefully as I am a big fan of white in RAM.
Im also actually a big fan of the squared edges and matt black. It reminds me of some kind of RAM waterblock.
OK, so 4 sticks are nice. 8 are better. MWHAHAHA
look how artsy this pic is!? i know right! looks almost like I know what im doing with the camera haha.
I do have an idea with this RAM, but im not sure if i dare to do it or not. With this RAM not being easy to get hold of it really does scare me to do too much.
ooops, dropped it.... only kidding haha
Well, that's the AVEXIR products I also have had an awesome gift from another company, so i'll be taking pics of that today Hopefully Jay and Em will be out of my way for them though.

Sorry its been a while (yet again) but I am apparently "fit for work" now so I've been back at work a lot. Booooo! It does mean that my thumb is getting better though so I can actually start some modding. First though, a huge thanks to
for sponsoring me yet again! You guys are awesome <3
So for this build I decided to go X99 and take the Sabertooth. I do love the armor on these bad boys!
Hiding the IO panel is always nice too and as you can see, there are a plenty of options directly from the mobo.
Those who are not familiar with TUF boards, basically they have an armor front and back to protect the board, help with heat dissipation and most importantly, look #### awesome.
TUF stands for The Ultimate Force by the looks of it niiice.
Some nice discreet branding by ASUS.
Sabertooth X99. Nom Nom Nom.
No bent pins <3
oooou, the 5820k found a new home!
This is the TUF Fortifier, basically its a metal plate that attaches to the back of the board and stops it from bending anything like that. It makes the board feel A LOT more sturdy tbh.
more Sabertooth X99 branding on the back.
I will just leave you with these last two pics... what a #### sexy board.
Thanks again ASUS, your all babes! Much love <3

Great detailing on the sabertooth cover! Just the right amount of color I think. I have the same board, and am presently working on adding neon green accents to mine. You are lucky the blocks on the video cards are already white! I will have to paint mine to match my color scheme. Keep up the great work!
