A New Build Log from our Review Staff is Starting! Silence Will Fall!

Greetings Pure Overclock fans! Just wanted to stop by and let you all know that we have a new build log up being written by Mike in the forums! It’s being sponsored by none other than: www.swiftech.com As a leading provider of enthusiast-grade water cooling components, their newest product line seemed the best possible fit for what we have in mind for the build (as well as some old favorites). The theme of the build is “Silence Falls,” a silence-optimized HTPC with more than just movie streaming intentions in mind, but with a bit of a twist that most of our readers wouldn’t really expect from a build of this nature. Be sure to stop by the forums to check out the build log as it progresses, and while you’re all at it be sure to check out some of the other awesome build logs we’ve got on-hand, including Project reDEFINEd by forum member humanityBG and Squircle, a scratch build by forum member glent. Both of them are turning out beautifully so far, so we have plenty of eye candy for you guys to ogle over. Here’s some links to the build logs mentioned: Silence Falls: A Thought Experiment Project “reDEFINEd” – Fractal Design DEFINE R2 XL Squircle [Scratch Build] Hope you all enjoy these builds, and stay tuned in for more projects to come!
