    Hey guys and welcome to my In Win G1 project log!

    I've been busy working on my Thermaltake CaseMOD Invivational build lately and as that is getting close to completion it's time to start a new project!

    I have been very excited for this project for a while and it's great to finally be able to start working on it!

    For those in Australia and going to PAX AU, you will be able to see it in the Nvidia area with MSY as one of the Nvidia Battlestation rigs doing 4K G-Sync demos!

    I want to say a huge thanks to all the sponsors which includes Gigabyte, In Win, Avexir, EKWBs, RamCity, Primochill and Icemodz!

    Here are the specs:

    Case - In Win 909
    Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z170X Gaming G1
    CPU - Intel i7 6700K
    Memory - 4 x 4GB Avexit Blitz White LED 2400Mhz DDR4 Memory
    GPU - 2 x Gigabyte GTX980ti Gaming G1
    SSD - 2 x 500GB Crucial MX200 SSDs
    M.2 - 2 x 512GB Samsung SM951 PCI-E M.2 SSDs
    PSU - Corsair AX860

    Cables - Icemodz Fully Custom Individually Sleeved Cables

    LEDs - Icemodz RGB LED Strips

    Radiators - EK-CoolStream PE 360 & EK-CoolStreak PE 240
    Fans - 7 x EK-Vardar F4-120ER (2200rpm) White
    Pump - EK-D5 Vario
    Reservoir - PrimoChill 240mm CTR Phase II High Flow D5 Enabled Reservoir System
    Fittings - PrimoChill Rigid Revolver Compression Fitting sets of red and black, Various Bitspower angle fittings, pass-throughs and extensions
    Tubing - Primochill 1/2" Rigid PETG Tube Clear
    CPU Block - EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel Plexi
    GPU Block - EK-FC980 GTX Ti WF3 - Nickel Plexi with clear Plexi inlet/outlet and backplates
    Coolant - Mayhems Aurora Silver/White

    This will be a black, red and white themed system based around the awesome Gigabyte Z170X Gaming G1 motherboard!

    I want to start off with some pics of the beautiful In Win 909 case!

    Hey guys!

    Here is the case without the outside frame. I will start to give it a little bit of modding love!

    Hey guys!

    I took the jig saw to the top of the case and expanded the hole in the top. It came out pretty good minus a minor slip when I was fining the cut edges.

    The case is ready for powder coating now though. Will be a pretty cool colour if anyone can guess :D

    Hi guys!

    I present to you the Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming G1 motherboard! This thing is a beast and I'm so excited to have it going in the system!

    With 4-way SLI support, dual PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 support, integrated watercooling with G1/4" threads, PCIe metal shielding, USB Type-C connection and USB 3.1 support as well as an awesome multi-colour LED trace path that even lights up the rear I/O shield, this is in my opinion one of the best looking and feature packed Z170 motherboards out there at the moment!

    Gigabyte Gaming G1 GTX 980TIs to go with the Gigabyte Z170 Gaming G1 motherboard!

    I guess you guys can tell why I named this build In Win G1!

    Thanks a lot to Gigabyte for the support on this project!

    Like I said for the motherboard in the previous post, the same for these GPUs, some of the best 980TIs out there at the moment. And they are really good looking too!

    I'm not sure if I mentioned before but PAX AU is coming up this weekend and this build will be on display in the Gigabyte area at the MSY booth! Anyone from Australia and going to PAX make sure to check it out. Also I will be stationed at the Cooler Master booth doing some live modding and workshops, please stop by and say hi!

    Now lets check out these cards!!!

    Hi mate! Cheers, glad you like the progress so far :D

    I can say it was extremely easy to take out the internal chassis, just has some screws that you can take off and it pops out, they are all normal phillips head screws too so it makes it easy :)

    Hope this helps

    Looking forward to this coming together

    A noob question but what happens with the sponsorship items? Do you give them back? Keep them for the next build? Sell the system? Raffle the system? And the rest? Do you buy the other parts yourself?

    Thanks. Is it literally just screws? Im toying with electroplating the alumium case to a dark grey/space grey colour of the Apple products. Reckon it'll work?
    On a side note, do you think its possible to add more LED lights but have it hooked up to the button on the side of the case?

    Looks good so far!

    I will use this system as my personal system once done because I really like this case! Other sponsored items I keep reusing with other systems and mods, it really depends on the company but you generally have to keep showcasing the products and be ready to take the system to events such as local LAN parties and in my case even PAX and EB Games expo :)

    Yup just screws, it's very easy to take off :)

    I'm not sure how electroplating would go, is that like anodizing?

    As for the LED I'm not sure, the bottom LED button controls the LED bar on the case and the power button LED cable lights up the In Win logo at the front of the case. It's really cool. I will have RGB LED strips inside and with that I can turn them on and off or switch colours with a remote so I'm not to fussed about connecting them to the other LED button.

    Hi guys!

    Here's some of the gear in the case and also the red frame is back in.

    You can see a custom acrylic plate where the reservoir is mounted with a pass-through fitting going down into the main compartment and also a cover for the PSU area with the In Win logo on it :D
