Briefing

One of our best looking Signature PCs and a very great performer as yet. The Royal Steel Signature PC uses the Thermaltake V71 as its very versatile house. Visualizing ascetics on it took a great part of the build. When you're client wants his PC to look "majestic" you really gotta think hard, and deliver even better; this is what we accomplished with Royal Steel. 

Powered by the gamer's 1st choice CPU, the i5-4670k and the best bang for buck GPU, Sapphire's R9-290 Vapor X there is nothing that will BSOD this royal beast. Our lucky owner will use this to pOWN gaming noobs and fast threaded applications from the MAN. Though as you can see, it pays to work for the MAN.

This is also the third 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. This case has so many ways to be built, you really need to think up your strategy before you go on it!

  2. You'll need to remove the complete upper fan controller to install another 200mm fan.

  3. To do a push-pull configuration on the Corsair H110, you'll need to get creative. First mount the radiator with both 140mm fan attached, then screw in the 200mm.

  4. This PC, was a Royal Pain... to build. jk
