I finally joined the OMEN family

Post  BlindLemon77 on Tue Mar 28, 2017 1:25 pm

So the last few auctions I saw managed to get away from me, including that awesome one with all of the marketing goodies, so I had to make sure to snag this one. Spent slightly more than maybe I should have, especially since the following for these is probably down to a skeleton crew, but I am happy.

I am beginning my planning for a build in it, although I do love seeing it as Voodoo left it. It would be cool to somehow keep the Voodoo engraved water blocks on the next one but I don't see that working out. Maybe I will make some coasters or something...

The case was missing the bay cover and flip down disc drive covers, but luckily enough Lian Li still makes them, so I have those on the way. I probably won't have two disc drives on the next build (if any) but it is good to know I will have them in the back pocket.

I am in Colorado, and soon to move to Boulder, so I find it a little amusing that it will be relatively close to the old Fort Collins shop. Anyway, a couple pictures, complete with remnants of the packaging on the floor:



The foot was included to show a friend of mine how big it was haha

That was you? Congrats, sorry for bidding against you. I was disappointed that I didn't put thousand in it haha. Its nice to know that you're on this forum.

I'm still on my quest to find a case. Hopefully one will turn up somewhere soon. Are you going to try to keep the original look by updating the hardware to modern pieces?

Well, I will admit after the last OMEN with the whole 'Out of Box Experience' and extras got away on ebay in the last few moments of auction, I may have adopted that method of last minute bidding. Sorry about that, I was pretty determined this time haha.

Yeah I am going to keep it looking the same way it does, apart from putting the missing disc drive covers and blank 5.25" bay cover on, but those are original Lian Li parts so it will literally just bring it back to the stock look.

I must admit, being that I am not a game designer and I don't find myself mining data or bitcoins, I don't think I will do the multi-gfx card thing in the build I put in here. I will probably try to salvage the liquid cooling though, just on a single GTX 1080 or something. Thinking the Ryzen 1700X and a 1080 would be pretty nice. I have a few SSDs around and the case has 1000W, so i think all I would really need is water blocks for the CPU and GPU, and some new fangled modern ram. that's the plan, tentatively.

Looks good, I still haven't decided what GPU to put in my Omen. I got a Motherboard that can do 3 way sli and 2400K i5 that is water cooled and 16gb of ram in it, but still haven't even tried to power it up yet.
