    If you want the BEST screwdrivers pick up a set of Stanley's. They are more money but will last you forever.

    ANYWAY sweet card man.........rig needs more pink.

    yes. that fan is going away though. I got 2 Corsair SP120s that are going to do push pull.

    For some reason 3dmark11 wont record my score and im using Basic and then I dont know where to get 3dmark vantage. I would really like to get advanced versions of both, but i really don't want to pay.

    Till I checked your system specs, and then realized the lack of sound proofing foam... I thought we had the same computer case. Both corsair, but I have the 550d. Has identical internal layout.

    3dmark11, free version, only does online score reporting. Also, it might need an update? I dunno...

    As to finding downloads, TPUs got 'em!

    Today it is memory and fan install day. Except theres a dilemma I do not have another fan cable to my fan controller so push pull will happen next week when I get another cable. So Now its just Push and then the new ram is installed.

    [​IMG]
    Ram installed, love the look
    [​IMG]
    Now with the push fan on

    So Sexy

    Looks SO DAMN GOOD! Don't yeah think?
    [​IMG]

    A thank you shout out to Cadaveca for helping me out getting the ram set up in my bios. At first running it at XMP Profile 2 did not work and blue screened at windows start up. So he asked me to send him screenshots of my bios and walked me though changing all the ram settings by hand and now my system boots and runs SuperPi at 32M without issue. Thank you Dave!
     
    MT Alex and cadaveca say thanks.

    We have a member, Idaho49ers, that I was referring to. He'd be another Idahoan I think.

    I tried finding an idaho user name but couldn't. You are thinking of
    boise49ers who is also in Idaho.

    Awesome man, You make me need a job.

    Hey, did you ever get 3dmark11 working? It stopped working as soon as I got my 670. I re dl'd it a couple times and reinstalled drivers and everything but it still doesn't show my score. It loads the site but there's nothing there.

    Sorta on topic.

    Based upon one of your photos and the pasteyness of your hand, I know envision you as looking like Powder.

    Maybe a grotesque mashup of Powder and Skeletor.
