Hey Guys,
This is me starting a build guide for my next build which is, no surprise, a scratch build based on a style of the mirror dimension from Doctor Strange. Lots of glass, and orange coolant. Anyway, the case is also a mix in style of the InWin Tou and Antec Tourque. A few parts have arrived, but the specs are not definite yet. A rough idea is:
CPU R7 3800X
GPU RTX 2080 SUPER/TI (unsure of budget)
MOBO Crosshair VIII Hero
RAM 32GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200mhz
PSU Aerocool Project 7 P750
COOLING EK Loop, DDC pump and 2 PE360s
STORAGE 1TB 970 EVO, and then either another one in RAID or a 2TB hard drive (Depending on budget)
CASE The design is incomplete, but my render so far is…
 
 
 
Expect more detail soon, the rest of the parts are being bought on Black Friday.
Ask Me anything!
Murdoch

    Thanks.
    Other features to expect:
    Capacitive power button (You just tap a glass panel!)
    RGB Ryzen Text on top of the logo in the distributrion plate, etched into glass.
    Potentially a phone NFC chip so only your phone can turn it on! (Instead of the capacitive button. Give your opinion!)

    No problem. PSU just arrived, the Aerocool P750 RGB Platinum, and I'm sleeving the cables over the next month when I'm away. Then I wait until black friday!
    Cheers for the support

    Really looks like it will be a Strange build. Pun intended.

    OK it's been a while, still super busy. Case is still in design phase, adding screws+ o-rings to the custom res, had to start again a few times. Custom cable gear arrived, messed that up, need to call corsair about where the 4 extra sensing pins go. Finally, I was in the US for the first time last week, where (in San Francisco) tech is much cheaper, so I picked up a Crosshair VIII Hero Wifi, so that's the mobo sorted.
     
    Just had to keep you guys posted!

    Hey all,
     
    The case is complete! Here are some renders. I'm not sure why there are artifacts is the distribution plate rendering, but you get the idea.
     
    Almost all the parts are here as well, but I still need an SSD and a GPU. To get the cash for these, I need to sell my old system.
     
    Anyway, expect more updates soon!

    I don’t see where he was “advertising” anything. He merely said to finish new build he had to sell old one.

    A simple general statement with no solicitation of anything.

    How is this advertising?

    I used to mine. Now I compute.

    It's all coming together....
    I love the monoblock from ek for the board, but it is slight overkill for a 3800X.

    Expect more pictures soon.

    The GPU will be vertically mounted in the case, but the test bench (mobo box) works, and I've set up raid on the two 1TB M.2s (Samsung 970 Evos), so I have an estimated read speed of 7GB/s!
