Yeah, the 840 pro will be my OS drive as the SSHD will be the Media Drive
That works well for me mate, I have two samy basic 250 ssds with games on and the sshd doesn't seem to load any slower than them most times though the first load can sometimes feel hdd slow , , just the first ,each use after that is ssd quick and since gameplay often suits reloads or the same game over a hour it appears quick enough in use.
sounds great too bad they dont have a 15000 rpm enterprise sata 6 drive
Cant Wait for the Sapphire 290 Vapor-X shows up in stock again, ill be getting a SB ZXR aswell
Just Purchased the Roccat Kone XTD Mouse
Nearly there then dude I take it your not going to build until you have it all, must be torture.
I might put the fans in Green front, rear, blue bottom, top then blue green on side.
Its not torture just patience. The psu im thinking of is Seasonic 1250 or Antec 1300.

On OC.net they said, back in November, that there were some Evil Blues on E-Bay. That is the search I used ^.
Only Black's, Red's and White's.
I would continue to check though, E-bay listings change daily, if not more often!!
Amazon also has a listing but, they are unsure when it will become available. The only other places I could find them is South Africa and in Australia. Planning a vacation?
Oops, should have continued reading....
Glad you got the case, it looks awesome, or, should I say, getting the case? I don't know if it has been delivered yet. Haven't seen any pics of it!!
All thats left for me to get is the Power Supply, HDD, Optical Drives, Sound Card, Graphics Card.
Ill post Pics when Im done with it
Well My Sound Card Came in. SB ZxR
If you need an optical drive, I have a blu-ray burner around here somewhere I could contribute for postage plus a modest fee. Some media too! Just PM me and I'll photograph it, not going to bother listing it otherwise if you aren't even interested though... mostly to help out.

nice rig, pair that with a 290 and you should have some power there!
nic rig indeed, well me i am actually on a:
Corsair Carbide Spec-01
2x AF120 white
2x AF140 white
Scythe Katana 4
AMD FX 6300
ASUS M5A99X Evo
ASUS R9 290 ref (noisy but who care (yep doesn't throttle at 100% fan ))
Kingston Fury 1600 C10 8gb (2nd 8gb will come next month)
OCZ Vertex III 120gb
500gb 7200 (recycling xD )
Fractal Design Integra R2 650w
seconded the 290 is the new 8800GT if you can find her at a good price (if you remember the 8800GT then you see what i am talking about )
I found this on eBay, I'm happy with my Tahiti but that price... It sounds NIB as well, so no nasty crypto miners got it. . Might interest you:
Item number 131217329502
Don't know how good HIS is these days but for sub $450 new, damn...
not bad at all for @eidairaman1 that would be golden, i was also lucky on my 290 since the guy i bought from used it 3 month and he got 3 of them but used only 2 for mining he assured me that one was not used to mine but for his other gaming rig dunno if i can trust but she seems unharmed
Speaking from experience as a miner, it all depends on how aggressive they were with the over clock, how the temps were kept, etc. My cards I could probably sell as none-miners and know one would be able to prove otherwise, but I'm an honest man.
A better link to that super-card deal now that I am off my cell phone, mind you I can't speak for the sellers quality, only that it's a super deal:
Im a lil unsure of cards that were used for coin mining ops
If it's NIB (which that link was), I assume it wasn't used for mining unless they have a lot of repackaging skill... but yeah, I don't blame you for being wary.
Either way, it's gone now. Just trying to keep my eyes peeled for you.
Thx for offer i have one in mind vapor x 290
I can tell you for a fact the coolers on Vapor-X series cards are very nice.
