First PC Build for a Customer!

Level 10
Alright guys, I'm going to be doing a build for my cousin who doesn't know too much about computers and wanted an iMac (NO!). I am building him a decent budget setup and with some nifty thoughts and ideas I had in mind here is how it goes:

CASE: Zalman Z11 Plus Mid Tower (Customers #1 pick) (Newegg link here).
MOBO: ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ (Newegg link here)
CPU: AMD FX-6200 (Newegg link here).
GPU: EVGA GTX 560Ti (Newegg link here).
PSU: COOLER MASTER GX Series 750W (Newegg link here)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB Blue (4x4GB) (Newegg link here)
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB (Newegg link here)

and now the cool part... I decided to go all out with the Enermax Vegas Duo series, virtually he will be able to switch his whole lighting scheme into 10 different modes, but more commonly.. between Red and Blue LED's!!

The only thing he asked was that he wanted a nice dark case with blue LED's... So I think he will like the turnout 😉

CPU Cooler: Enermax TB Vegas Duo (Newegg link here)
Case fans (5x120mm): Enermax TB Vegas Duo 120mm: (NCIX link here)

It's very straight forward, with exception of the lighting.. which will be pretty neat! I will post pictures, we're going to my local supplier on Sunday to pick up all the parts.

He's adopted 2 of the parts from me at next to nothing. I had 2 AMD FX-6200's and I will be upgrading my 560Ti 🙂

I do need to know some information, if anyone might have the answer for it.. I need to know if it's possible to hard-wire the fan controllers to all work off of one? This would be much more logical than finding a way of mounting several seperate controllers.. I think I can do it, not positive! If anyone has any prior knowledge of this please let me know 🙂

Stay tuned for pics and more info!

Psychedelic is all I can say...that plexiglass system looks really nice.
I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!
We now have 178 people whose systems will not break! Yippee! 🙂
LINUX Users, we have a group!

Trippy hippy stuff! I love it in all colors and modes haha
I had such a hard time with those decals!!!! Each letter had to be put on individually! I ruined the "TUF" so AMD Unlocked and Powered by ASUS will do just as well 😄

I will also be doing a youtube video about some of the features about the build. Subscribe to the youtube in my signature to stay posted!
