Building a Star Citizen Rig [Parts are in ! ]

Recommended Posts

So I decided to make some changes to the rig im building right now. As I only had bought the case it was the best time to make the final decisions. Most of the changes were for slightly better performance or for aesthetics.

 

I'll update this thread with pictures of everything over the next month.

You don't have to plug in the case LED connectors onto the motherboard. I don't think HHD indicators are really necessary these days, same goes with power lights.  If you really want them on and colour coordinated you could just swap em out for red ones. 

PS nice build, I'm currently on the edge of buying a 980 ti. My 3440x1440p display is too much for a 750 :P  

edit - fan lights. paint over them

If you are a pirate you can download windows 7 and upgrade it to windows 10. also if you upgrade from win7 it will show as a paid licence...... if you upgrade from win 8 it will say its unpaid. Just a thought

or you could just buy a old windows 7 proper copy instead of pirating it
