    I give them away, unless i need to hold on to them for numbers updates(and then i get rid of them, although I am very purposefully holding onto quite a few for LN2 clocking). i'm doing reviews for the fun, not the money.

    i'd never be on it.... people think im rich. fact is i just worked my ass off to get the things i've had in the past. gonna have to keep on doing that it seems. the whole reason i didnt go SB on this build was because i had to do some craigslist trading to afford what i got. i sold a machine that had a dead mobo that was given to me.

    i5 655k - CL for $100
    maximus iii formula - here on tpu for $60
    zt650 psu - newegg sale/used old gift certs to buy, out of pocket was $43 and i got $25 newegg card + $20 MIR from ocz
    crucial 8gb ram kit - above gift card and rebate paid for ram
    i had one case and got the second off CL for $50

    for what i have in the whole thing i couldnt even get an 1155 cpu or mobo.



    new ram today....

    That looks great!! keep up the great work! :pimp:
    I'm a ASUS fan too.

    That's awesome I always thought Reviews had to hold onto them.

    I'm still using a ASUS P5q Pro LGA775, it takes over 40 sec. to boot past Bios screen.
    nudge, nudge, wink, wink. :D

    almost done... just have to make the front panel fan shroud as soon as i get some 140mm fans found. i need to finish wiring up the power switch and get a longer sata cable for the bottom drive.

    the "brain" had to be put together outside the box then installed as a whole. was tough to do without scratching everything to death.

    what you think?
