This is my current computer. It is a older generation but it does what I need it to do and it does it well. I use this computer for content creation as well as an everyday workstation for Design, and Gaming.
This case was from my original workstation back in 2007. It was sitting around and it deserved a new life since it has been with me for a long time through thick and thin. So I decided to go ahead and mod it. Below is the work log:

Okay so the AIO is the Swiftech H240 X-2 I decided the loop would fit the Mod with Copper Pipes and white PrimoChill Revolver Fittings. as well as an extra res for ease of filling. I added a drain port that runs in the basement of the case and out the back with PrimoChill soft tubing and used a compression fitting and fill port to plug the end.
I originally thought this would be a total failure, but it is actually working SUPER WELL! and looks pretty nice.
I chose this motherboard because it was one I had my eyes on for a few years now and since my last motherboard was completely destroyed, I decided to change it up a bit. This has many upon many USB hubs and plenty of fan ports as well as has a lot of good reviews. so I thought that it would work just fine.
I needed a lot of cores and something that was good at multi-threading. The only thing that worried me was the 3.2GHz, but honestly I haven't noticed much of a difference. I have not OC'd it yet, reason being, I simply am confused at how to do it with SB-E. I have read up on it and I'm still confused. might need a walk-through.
I Chose the R7 370 because... well honestly, I got it at a really good deal new and that was pretty much my budget. I WILL upgrade in the future. But for now, this isn't a bad GPU it just takes a bit of fiddling with to get it to get good FPS in DOOM. but it runs BF1, Battlefront and all the indie games I play really well.
As for everything else, it was either in the budget or I already had it.
In the future, I would really like to upgrade to an X99 platform or maybe even the Z270. But who knows, the tech industry is moving fast.
Thank you for checking out my Build/Mod. There will be more Case Mods to come!
