Description

This is my new PC build for 2017. Upgrading from my old 5+ year old rig which was a 2600K.

I made some custom modification my own PSU shroud to cover up the cables down the bottom. Also and made a mount for bottom LED RGB strip to reflect onto the mobo. The shroud was made from thin mdf wood and paint black, the LED strip mount is from steal and also painted black.

Lots of time was spent sorting and tidying up the cables.

Finished product is black, red and white themed colours and I think it turned out pretty well.

looks like a solid build but no pictures of the finished product

Had issues uploading the images, just re-uploading them now, shouldn't be too much longer

Not quite sure why you chose the 6700K over the more popular and less expensive 7700K

I have a mate who work for a PC store, he had some spare 6700K given as promo, he didn't need it and sold them to me for half price, that's reason why I use them.
