New rig is online!

Parts arrived by courier this morning...

Was planning to wait for the weekend to do the build. But being the passionate hardware enthusiast that I am, I couldn't wait. So I took a long lunch around at Kaggies shop and got to work.

The motherboard was in and out a few times to fit parts that I'd forgotten to mount. 

Doing the build in a proper work space was tops! Chris has all sorts of handy tools!

Mounting that water cooling system had me scratching my head for a while. Pretty sure I've done it wrong too. Might have a look a that manual again when I have a minute. I feel like there should be another Fan in the mix.

Builds always look so good right before the cables go in, don't they?

All done! All up it was about 2 hours including the Windows 8.1 install which was about 10 minutes! It's so fast and so Quiet. The Graphics card will change the sound profile quite a lot but we've got some plans for that too!
