so i just started building my new rig so far i got some of the components(asus viii hero, 1050 w snow silent PSU, corsair 900d case and then 16gb of corsair ddr4 vengeance) I plan on doing a custom loop with EK water blocks. I work in the car business so i have connections with body shops and such, got the paint code from porsche. The color is Ultraviolet purple and is currently only available on the GT3 RS. I think the painters did an absolutely fantastic job. Ill keep updating as i go along

You Porsche guys. Always getting excited over a new car that looks just like the old ones. ;)

All kidding aside:
I'm looking forward to your take on this build. Subbed.

Edit: I love your choice of the Zapster as your avatar.

Subbed!

So what design queues will you take from the porsche and apply it to your build? I see the purple color!!

^ i plan on using yellow on the interior of build, sort of how the brake caliper is yellow was the idea i had. So all of the liquid will be yellow, (just like the new porsches i am doing liquid cooled, sorry all of you air cooled purists!) I am trying to find other ways to incorporate some other porsche things, I will be putting an RS badge on the front. should have everything by next month, im looking for a march launch.

Round all the edges/corners and put a spoiler on the top of the case! Wheels too! Well maybe not wheels... :)


I am also excited to see how this one looks at the end of the day. Keep up the good work.
