    Hi guys,

    This one is going to be a little different. I've decided to post a build log for this build however the build has been finished now for a few months. This was done around March this year when I was still in the middle of my move.

    I had to get this build done along with another for an event. With the move and rushing to get it finished for the event I didn't have time for a build log.

    For those interested to see I will get all the content out for this fairly fast :)

    Hope you guys enjoy this one. I have to say the In Win H-Frame 2.0 is a stunning looking case.

    It's an awesome looking case :D

    Price is a bit high as it is a limited edition signature series In Win case, it's around $1600 to $1700 for the case along that comes with the custom 1065W PSU.

    :eek: Do they offer a payment plan. Seriously though that's double
    some of the Thermaltake Level10 offerings & they were considered cutting
    edge at the time for $900+ iirc

    Hahaha yea they release a yearly signature case and those are the ones with the more premium price tag. Last year it was the S-Frame. This year they have a few more. H-Frame 2.0, D-Frame 2.0, X-Frame i think it was and who can forget the robotic H-Tower :D

    In Win really make some work of art cases but you do pay a premium.

    Hi guys,

    The theme for this build which I forgot to mention will be a bit art deco with some gold vinyl.

    Here are the side panels :)

    This is the back side panel featuring the sponsor logos.

    Hi guys,

    Here's a quick look at some of the components going in.

    Firstly, the ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Formula and the CPU in it is the 6700K.

    GPUs going in are two reference GTX 980s which will of course have waterblocks installed however I've always loved the look of reference cards.

    Two 240GB HyperX Savage SSDs

    16GB of HyperX Predator DDR4

    [​IMG]

    And lots of Bitspower watercooling gear! When this arrived at the time it was watercooling gear for two builds hehehe. And despite the look of that bottom box, everything was in one piece.

    Thanks for checking it out guys and stay tuned for more.

    Cheers,

    hope it all comes together in the end but personally not a fan of gold bits on the glass window

    starting to look more like a Chinese restaurant then a nice classy art deco look.

    any thoughts on the coolant color?

    Thanks a lot mate :D

    Ah thank man! I'm really not big on art deco so these are just things I grabbed of Google that looked cool from just searching for art deco so not too sure if everything will be on point. I just wanted something to go with the gold look.

    Will be using just clear coolant for this, will work well with the bitspower true brass fittings going in :)

    Thanks a lot man :D

    Hi guys,

    I have all the cables in here and you can see some of the vinyl work done on the radiators as well as the In Win logo on the fans.

    The only mod done to the case and even that has been super simple to do is the front radiator mount which is just done with a large L bracket to hold it up. With the pump/res combo attached to it with a Bitspower X bracket and res holders.

    You also get a glimpse at the Bitspower True Brass fittings which will be used throughout the build.

    Another thing to note with the cables is that the 24pin didn't actually end up working. Given that the PSU in this case is unique and has it's own form factor to suit the case, meaning that it is much larger. The pin-out must have been very different.

    The cables came from Icemodz and it was the first time they did cables for this PSU. Without actually having the PSU there to inspect, it was a bit of guess work involved. The build was then needed for an event so there was no time to order another cable therefore the stock 24pin cable was used throughout the build. It doesn't look bad but not as nice as the custom one.

    Anyways, enjoy the pics.

    Hi guys,

    Here are photos of the finished system. These were taken at a LAN Party back in March of this year where the build was first on display.

    Hope you enjoy. I will have more photos up shorty.

    again i think it looks great (especially those awesomely clean tube bends) but as soon as that glass panel goes on with that ugly large decal right in the middle you lost me.
