Build

Soundwave : Superior. PC specs : inferior.

by Houndour

Description

Ongoing project, as I'm sure many of you would appreciate. Most of this was purchased and in use in another case since October ‘17. Told my wife how much I like the look of the Corsair Crystal 570x series of cases and she gifted me one for Christmas. So I needed to up my aesthetic game.

Used primarily for casual gaming and other media.

Works fantastic. Haven’t had a chance to benchmark it yet but I’ll edit this if I can with extra deets.

I custom coated the AIO radiator white to match the case using a simple process featured on the Corsair official website. I highly recommend as it’s not difficult and quite risk free. The finish was well worth it. I stencilled the logo onto the PSU shroud. I’m no artist so if it looks a little danky, that’s on me but it looks great behind the tempered grey glass and I’m very happy with the final result. Cablemod white sleeved cables helped the final aesthetic a lot.

All in all I’m very happy with the final product. It’s quieter than expected. Pleasantly so. Like I said, I’m no artist or pro custom builder. But it’s definitely mine and I’m very proud of the results.

Plot twist, this system only has 8GB of RAM.

The other stick is Laserbeak.

This would be amazing. I have a Laserbeak that came with this model Soundwave. I could have him perched in there. You’ve inspired me!

Nice job. Really like the custom work.

Pictures a a bit potato in quality lighting wise. But part selection is very good and so is the end result.

Thanks for sharing !!

Why is the Gpu Price never Included on these builds.......

If it doesn't show in stock at any retailers through the PCpartpicker search it will not automatically show the price. Prices in blue were filled in by the site itself and represent price shown right now online, prices in black were added by the submitter and reflect actual price paid.

Hey, nice build, man. Are your white cables both CableMods? I've been thinking about getting that brand but wanted to see how they look once installed and these photos helped.

They definitely positively add to the aesthetic. Thank you.
