Shiva Prototype




This is my current rig and a base for something more grand later on, hence the "Prototype" moniker. It is also my first rig in an open-air chassis. Typically, the LEDs cycle between blue, white, and (sometimes) green. For the purposes of this photo, they are red, as in AMD Red.


Also, that fan below the rad is the AMD RGB fan that comes with the 1700. It's mostly there for decoration. I just couldn't let a pretty-looking fan go to waste. It is mounted to the case using a 80-to-120mm adapter. On the other hand, I may get a 80-to-140mm adapter printed out just to make it more uniform with the radiator fans, now that I have access to a 3D printer for additional modding. Speaking of fans, I may also change out the radiator fans to something that has a bit more "bling" to it, like Corsair RGB fans. Right now, I'm using overpowered Noctua Industrial fans with white Chromax corners on them.


Lastly, the little cord sticking out from the bottom is an RGB LED cable connected to the RGBW header on the motherboard. I use that to test LED strips at the moment.
