Hello guys and girls :D

Let me introduce you to my Gr3yF0rce Project. I am on this build since 05.01.15 so i have some older Pictures to show you until we reach the actual status. You will see i switched the fans during the Build because i couldnt wait until my new Coolermaster JetFlo120´s arrive ...so i used my old Corsair´s instead. But lets start with an overview:
 
Some parts are missing like the "REAL" fans and the GPU blocks and the big Rad:

2. Which Case to start?
