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.

Version 1.5 

Version 2.0 - Gauchitronix ON


Briefing

This PC belongs to one of Bandi Tech's Interns and as a member of the Bandi Tech family we WILL "Signaturize" your PC. Having said that, the PC was in good conditions although some software mishaps here and there but it was configured properly. 

Our newest intern began working for us just 4 days before we went to the Optico Fiber event. Seeing a great potential in our padawan we decided to reward him by ordering a couple of parts to make he's PC into a Signature PC.

Even under the stress that the upcoming week we were also going to Kaisen Anime Fest, we managed to rebuild his PC and be able to host it at the event. LEDs we soldered afterwards, which is why Ver. 1.5 is the PC feature in event. Click Here to read on the event or Click Here to learn more about our photographer for the Kaisen Event: Mario Stephano Fong.

Finally, the LEDs were installed, a whopping 500 diodes in total. This PC can brighten up your room if you light fixture ever fails. Aside from the cosmetics, this PC packs a punch with at i7-4770K and an Nvidia GTX 660 most games will play above 30fps on a 1080p monitor and PCs tasks... let's not even bother. Gauchitronix is now POWERED ON.

Hints for building a similar PC:

  1. To fit a H50 Corsair water cooling, we had to sand down the acrylic windows on the Ultra Defender case, this case proved to be unfriendly to water cooling system, even this basic ones.

  2. Use an isolator when shrinkwrapping the LEDs after soldering, you don't want the poles to touch.

  3. If you make a mess during your PC building, don't worry, that's why you have an intern!
