1.) so get something like a gtx 1060, r9 480, or even a 1070 if you can cut corners on the rest of your computer. 2.)get an ssd. I would rather have a 240 gb sdd for $60 than a 1tb hdd for the same price 3.)for cpu get something around the lines of i3 6100, i5 6500 , i5 6400 depending on your budget 4.)at least 2x4gb ddr4 5.)fully modular psu

man this build looks so clean and the sapphire cards are probably the nicest looking ones on the market. i would do something about the empty space on the right through. maybe you could build a custom loop and put the reservoir there?

well here are a few things i learned from building the case if you are going to make one yourself: 1.) Use a thicker and less ductile metal like steel instead of aluminium for the superstructure so it doesn't sag like mine does. 2.) Do your homework on spray painting whatever materials you use. my boat looks like **** because i did a terrible sloppy job spray painting it. 3.) Spray water on acrylic while cutting it with power tool to prevent cracking and shattering 4.) Try to reinforce and stabilize the superstructure more. I can't turn my fans to max because then the superstructure vibrates like crazy. 5.) I recommend using velcro tape secure things like drive mounts and fans to the case. 6.) Don't worry about dust. After two months of use, there is hardly any dust inside my system.

btw I'll probably build a larger boat with a custom loop in a few months since I have access to cheap water cooling parts.

Go on newegg and buy literally any PSU that's not thermaltake and it will completely destroyed your current one. Your PSU is not decent. It actually sucks. True Amazon rating should be around 1.5 stars because most people would rate it a 5 if it just turns on. Not trying to be harsh but the PSU is just as important as the CPU or GPU.

On Amazon your PSU averages 3 stars, which is terrible considering the low end Corsair CX-Series has 4.5 stars. Having a good PSU is extremely important for the longevity and stability of your system, and it's something a lot of people overlook. Saying that 80 plus rating is good enough for a PSU is like you eating mcdonalds all day and saying it has meats, carbs, and veggies so it is healthy food. Don't be surprised of the PSU pops and gets destroyed, possible taking other parts with it.

i think you should return your CPU cooler and your 6700k if you will use that motherboard and get a locked CPU. There is no reason to spend an extra $200 for a slightly higher quality CPU. CPUs don't just suddenly die and they become obsolete far before they break. If you want higher quality parts, don't cheap out on your mobo, SSD, or PSU. Your computer is not just a CPU.

you couldve saved like 200 if you went with a xeon instead because you wasted your money on a watercooler and K processor with a mobo that cant OC

actually its not too difficult to work on the computer. The superstructure comes off easily after unplugging the graphics card and fan.

Well aren't watercooled computers with expensive parts and RGB LEDs more excessive? :-)

sorry about this. I haven't had the time to upload the designs at the moment. I'll get to it later. And no, the build was too simple for CAD.

the water pressure will be too much and even the best sealing will fail. Plus I will have literally no airflow

Should I add some kind of side panels between the 4 levels? I think the airflow in the case is ok because the interior volume is small. The first fan sucks in air from the front of the boat and then the exhaust fan is is the one on the top. I can definitely feel the airflow inside the case when I stick my hand in it.

Ty. Do you mean I bought a meh psu or is my psu placement bad?

If I did that, I would have a hard time using my USB ports and fan controllers since they are at the rear of the boat. More importantly, I'd like to keep the sharp bow away from people. I can still do a much better job of routing my cables though.

You mean the cables coming out from the io? Those are pretty bad but I'll try concealing them

It's not dangerous except for the tip and no, it's not the one of Ces 2016.

I still have most of my sketches and my dimensions, but I don't think they will be as useful as the picture. I can still give you them if you want though.

most of the edges have been cut and filed and are safe (I hope) and only the bow is sharp. thanks for the comment though

haha I was thinking about water cooling but the entire case is occupied.
