Good morning all my beautiful modders!
This is going to be a pretty quick and dirty modding build log. This is going to be my entry for the modding challenge Gigabyte is holding to celebrate their 30th anniversary. The challenge ends November 14th so I'll have just under a month to complete the work. Good news is the case is scheduled to arrive this coming Wednesday(Oct. 19th) and I'm excited to start tearing it down and painting it.
So first, we will look at the design for this entry. The only things that will be different in my build will be no big pretty motherboard or GPU and I will only have a 120mm rad. The design concept was based off winning the design challenge. But everything else should match up pretty close.
The case I will be using will be the DIYPC Solo-T1-BK Black. Looking back on Newegg this morning I see I bought the last one as they now show Out of Stock.
This is the sleeving design for the build, will be adjusted off the sleeving in place currently from my Night Shark upgrade a few years back.
