  • Black & Gold X99 build


    New to this forum (technical issue) but thought I should post some pics by way of an introduction, so here they are.

    Let me know what you think! And yes, I'm a terrible photographer!


    top tubing

    custom vinyl work (took hours)

    custom gpu cover

    custom panel to hide drive bay cables (also took hours)

    needs more lighting...

    Fancy! Very unique I like it.

    What do you currently have in there, and specs, OC?
    Are you an overclocker? Have screen shots of your OC results? Please post and share your OC experience!

    The new G.Skill Overclocking Section!
