A few people have asked what I’m up to on my latest project, so I thought I’d take a stab at showing some of the highlights.
I picked up the ABS / Tagan Black Pearl case last August – on sale at Newegg for $89. This was quite a deal, because this is basically a Lian Li V2000 case which normally retailed for $200-300. The V2000 is classic, and is no longer produced. Only reason price is important, is because I bought this case to tear it up and cut it up – so wasn’t worried about losing a lot if I messed up.
The purpose of this build is simply to practice my modding skills and learn new things. The hardware that will go in the case is as follows:
EVGA X58 Micro-ATX motherboard
6 GB Corsair Dominator Ram
ATI Sapphire 5850 GPU
Antec 850 Signature PSU
OCZ 160 GB Vertex SSDs X 2
And, various water cooling components.
