Lore

Deep in the Ocean of Tears is said to be a colony of Sirens. Not even the highest ranking Paladins nor Necromancers of Norrath have come back from journeying into said colony. Alas, only one has been blessed. Rumor has it that this champion solo raided the colony and stole a very priced possession... a silver haired Siren; befriended and made ally, she will lend her powerful battle machine to win more battles against the evil VIDEO LAG! 

Briefing

As you may probably have guessed by the Lore of this Signature PC, this PC belongs to an Everquest 2 player, though not just EQ2, this PC will be used for many more games. 

With the 2nd most powerful CPU and GPU this PC is not a toy. Boot time is around 6 secs and most games play extreme graphics at 60fps... though bad programming in EQ2 renderings have thought us that a full on battle will always lower your FPS quite dramatically.

This is also the second PC we've included in our 2015 Signature PCs calendar. To have the highest quality pictures we could use for our calendar we solicited the photographic talents of our friend Mario Stephano Fong Photography. Click Here to learn more about his photography.

Hints for building a similar PC:

  1. Fitting an LED strip under the video card is a hassle, but it looks great!

  2. Create all LED strips before the build, you'll save a lot of time.

  3. The Corsair 450D cannot fit a push-pull radiator configuration and if you're using a 280mm radiator you cannot also install a DVD drive at the top.

Briefing

Sorry, no Lore this time. This PCs has very decent specs for what is going to be doing. Slaving away in an office scanning files and syncronizing data is kinda insulting for a 6 core CPU, but heck! we can! The best aspect of this PC's exterior is how we got those LEDs inside the front chassis, we even created a break away point. Finally, since this PC is going to be in a dusty place, we just covered it with "stylish" fan filters. Any questions or comments feel free to leave them, email us, find us on facebook or on the many more links we have at the bottom of this page.

Hints for building a similar PC:

  1. This Enermax case while cheap does have many things going for it, especially to frontal bezel that allowed us to put the LEDs.

  2. Enabling the MSI Fast Boot will allow you to boot into Windows 8 in about 8 seconds, but you must have a certified card for that.

  3. This PC will pacify and cool down anybody... Ok... I'm out.

"DEMACIA!"... cried Garen, spinning around in his sword like an unwinding spool. "It's not effective, sister. It seems that Doran... or what it Hippalus? Forgive me, that is not important. But it seems our enemy purchased some universal armor". "Maybe if you didn't just purchase boots and phantom dancers we would be better off" said Lux, "... but I know what you want, so let's go get it". "Aye," said Garen, "they will all soon fall with our mythical Vadali Legend weapon... power so great, such swiftness, much gloriousness, very power, many blue"; "ok Doge" sighed Lux "let's go".

Ah the Vadali Legend! One very successful Signature PC model that already has a copycat and probably many more to come. Easy to build, easy to maintain and the modification possibilities to build this PC are many.  Quick tip: Vadali, means blue in Gujurati, native language of the Indian state Gujurat. I digress, this PC was built for a League of Legends gamer, he just wanted a PC that would play just that in extreme graphics, 60fps and quick load time. This is what we delivered it performs exquisite to its assigned tasks.

Hints for building a similar PC:

  1. Great! You can fit all cable management in the back.

  2. Find a good hiding spot for the cathode's module, or better yet, extend the cable. 

  3. We don't want to spoil it, but right after Garen purchased the Vadali Legend at the shop, he received an Enchanted Crystal Arrow to the knee and lost the battle.
