Project: White Vector Desk PC – Watercooled Haswell-E Build

Hi everyone,

It’s been quite a while since my last build in 2013 which was based around the LittleDevil PC-V8 casing, Intel LGA1155 socket and Z68 chipset:


Now, I would like to share my new build with you guys. It’s a white themed single-loop watercooled system in a Vector Desk. Inspired by ASUS GOLIATH desk build, it will be based on Intel’s new X99 chipset, LGA 2011-v3 socket and Haswell-E CPUs.

First and foremost, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my sponsors for making this project possible:
