Description

Welcome to my riced out, sticker horse-powered, plasti-dipped, zip tied & double sided taped up build!

What a joy this was to build! I was inspired by the Stalker V2 on here to chop up an old *** HP P6000 case I had lying around and make it my own. I have never had more fun with a computer build, haha. There's is something about a custom case and budget parts that I know all of you can relate to and enjoy. I wanted a finished product that was pretty cool, neat to look at and cheap!

I think this is going to be a project that i'll always be changing and modding. Every time I look at it, I get new ideas. Tools used in this build were a dremel, file, 2 cans of plasti-dip, epoxy, several random screws, washers and anything I could find to hold this thing together.

This is my daily driver/gaming rig. I love the g3258 so much and it's going to be hard to let go of it... Currently clocked at 4.3ghz w/ 1.3v. Since i've started i've switched from a 750 ti to an R9 380x, added a hyper 212 EVO, and switched from a 220watt to a 380watt power supply.

Overall i'm pretty happy with it right now. I had to remove my media hub because it was blocking the PSU fan causing it get a little loud. I'm open to any suggestions anyone has or ideas so please let me know!

Future mods/upgrades: Reinstall media hub somehow, LED lighting, wtb skylake................., My ocd needs a card to fill the entire top space of about 13 inches, Modular power supply.

Edit Reinstalled the 750 ti FTW due to issues with the R9 380x, Installed 2 Corsair SP fans, Removed fan for northbridge cooling.

It's seeing stuff like this that make me think "hey, maby I should buy a dremel

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 3 points 37 months ago

make the plunge! before you know it, you'll be looking around the house for things to cut up :)

BillyBroken 2 points 37 months ago

<~Guilty, got a dremel for my birthday this year to replace the $10 harbor freight piece of crap I've been using. 2 days later half the items in the junk drawer were cut into tiny pieces. Yay! Power tools!

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 2 points 37 months ago

yaaaaaas! the power of destruction shifts into the creativity of a madman in your very hands! My favorite tool by far :) I need more cutter's though lol.

BillyBroken 1 point 37 months ago

Here is what I do since I have a harbor freight tool shop in the strip mall across the street from my apt. Buy 10 dollar dremel open package and gank all the cutting wheels and grinding disks, return dremel for full refund. Been working that since January and now I have more than I think i'll need for awhile...Shady, but oh well, 10 dollars for unlimited cutting wheels...

I kinda love it in a rat-rod sorta way. You really own it, which is good. You also just generally have a lot of crap on your desk, which I guess if you like it, is fine with me. +1 for fun.

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 2 points 37 months ago

Thanks, man! I'm glad you like it. Yeah ive been meaning to tidy it up a bit haha. I need to invest in shelves.

Dunder 1 Build 2 points 37 months ago

Nice Build and Nice Mod! Loads of personalty, also +1 for the bape and supreme stickers! Is that a legit supreme sticker, I never seen that one. I just put the ss/16 mendini box logo sticker on my case.

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

Haha appreciate it, man!

That's the sticker collection that I bought for this case :) I still have at least 25 left over, even after the wife nabbed some xD

Very good job on the build really imaginative. My only slight concern would be the cpu it most likely gets the job done but an bottom of the range i5 would transform your gaming experience you all ready have the GPU. Still great job +1

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

definitely! I'm going to upgrade to an i5 or i7 when i can find a cheap lga 1150 one!

bobdude_01 3 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

This is the most mixed build i have ever seen

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

right!?

Jhobbster 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Why not put your big monitor in the middle of the small ones for triple monitor gaming?

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

i tried that and didn't like it honestly. i like using 1 for temp monitoring software and another for youtube/music.

Jhobbster 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Oh. ok.....

xblackwhitex 2 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

What PSU is that? 380w, even a good one, is REALLY cutting it close for that PC. And I can see a PFC switch, so we know its not a good one.

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

it's this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817233013

Its worked fine for me over the past 2 years, it can handle prime95 and valley at the same time. I will upgrade in the near future most likely when i upgrade the processor.

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

Weird. Your unit has a sleeved 6-pin cable with TWO 6 pin GPU connectors on it while the one you linked has only a single 6-pin and no sleeving on that cable. They are not the same unit.

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

i have a 6 pin to 2 6pin connector attached.

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

Oh ok. I'd still replace the PSU. Also, it is never safe to use a 6pin to 2x6pin splitter and actually use both of the 6pins.

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

I will in the near future, it's holding up in the mean time thankfully.

FACUNDO 13 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

I love it. Just so original.

Pooters 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

I'm pretty sure those stickers added at least 1000 HP...

Nice build! I love to see when people mod they hell out of their PCs. I completely agree with some others and think this should be featured. Great job!

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 2 points 37 months ago

with the stickers i'm able to reach 7ghz with no voltage increase!!!!

Thank you! Motivation to mod moaaaar!

sniperpro 1 point 37 months ago

you should enter set up wars from tech source

alexlochamy 1 point 37 months ago

I love this. I'm actually doing the same with mine because of my sticker obsession. I also love how mixed this is, you're my idol tbh. Just needs a Honda Civic decal and you're good to go.

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

thanks, bro!!! I love a good stickerbomb on just about anything :D

DexterW 11 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

As a user that has many stickers on my personal rig, it does my heart well to see this build. You actually inspired me to buy some stickers and do a new case. Will link it here whenever I get to it, and I will get to it +4294204

Firewalp submitter 21 Builds 1 point 37 months ago
