[SPONSORED] - Project Metallum

Hey Carbs!

So as mentioned earlier, here is the second build log for 2018!

In collaboration with ASUS and Cooler Master South Africa, this build will be built in tandem with the Project Night King build.

Theme for this rig is industrial, and so the name 'Metallum', which is Latin for the word Metal (see what I did there?), chassis will be the Cooler Master H500P to enhance the industrial theme.

To start this log off, some glamour shots...

At the heart of this rig will be an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X:

Motherboard is the gorgeous ASUS Crosshair VI Extreme:

For pushing the frames, we have been provided with the ASUS ROG STRIX Vega64 GPU, which might be custom watercooled...

More on this build soon, so please follow these two builds we have really exciting things planned for both! :D

Hey Carbs!

About time that 'Project Metallum' also gets an update right?

Cooler Master South Africa spared no expense with their participation in this project :D

For power, we are provided with the V1000 80Plus Gold PSU...

Update time!

So I finally got my H500P from Cooler Master, and managed to get time to unbox it (shot some video of course, that will come soon), then took a few glamour shots.

I really like how the Crosshair VI Extreme matches the chassis, perfect for our industrial theme :)

Here's an overview of the rig so far:

And a little sneak peak of what's to come:

I'll share more with you all on that at a later stage when I'm no longer under NDA haha...

Have an awesome one guys!

Man this has been a long time since an update on this log!

I have finally received my Arduino Pro Micros, which I will be adding to the build.

On them, will be my little 0.96" oled monitors to show some system stats (if all goes to plan that is)!

Happy Sunday everyone!

It's time for another update.

Now, this mod is an industrial theme, and will be having a rusted effect, almost like something out of Chernobyl.

Here's some shots of how the surface of the chassis looks:
