The absolute best!
thanks guys for the kind words.
I didn't do much just an extreme dusting of all the parts, this loop is pretty damn hard to get apart, in fact I dread the day I have to do that
One of the reasons why I might not go back to water. If I do it'll be the Corsair H50, it's also all black which would look great in my build
What clocks you running it at bro?
Nice and stable little 3.8ghz - honestly I havent even tried to overclock this thing to the limit, kind of a shame because I think my 955 is rather nice. (this screen is not max clocks for this voltage nor min voltage for this clock )
Its super snappy and I havent seen a stuttered frame yet at 1920x1200
That's a nice overclock man, not extreme, but nice and conservative!
I just recently traded my i7 for a UD5 and 965 C3. I must say, this thing is snappy as hell, quicker than the i7 at most times I would say. That's probably from the AMD lacking Hyper Threading. Not all apps take advantage of that.
Here is my latest stable setup, I haven't really tried higher for stability, I had gone higher before but just to bench and screw around. I'll continue working on my overclock tomorrow.
You should check out the last couple of pages from the Phenom II Overclockers Thread, me and a couple of peeps have posted some very valuable and interesting info and overclocking these CPU's and core by core tuning. Here is the Link
Where I'm at now:
hey snipe hows the rig working out for you, good looking on the core speed there, you should push it a bit more. any lans yo plan on hitting up soon?
Uh no no new LANs right now, headed back to school on the 22nd, but I will probably hit up the nor'easter again this year considering that its so close to where I live
Thankyou to all who voted for me in the MOTY competition - I receive second place honors
now what am I going to do with all these new prize computer parts.....
I don't believe I was ever able to get my vote in, zip kept on being wrong but I couldn't figure it out Congratulations though bro, I would have gave you 1st place honors. You rig still doesn't fail to amaze me, look how long it's been already.

Nice stuff! I'd have to build it myself, then maybe part it out. Gotta keep the SSD and the 5850 though
man, that's just nice!!! Congrats Ian, I'm very happy for you man. You definitely deserved it bro
whoa nice toys to play with!
Cp Give Me That In 1080p! :d
Awesome hardware to win,, A win to remember for sure.
Here you go
Good to know our votes got you all these toys!
Okay I was just shown this by CP (I love you man!) tonight, and I have to say this is the MOST UNBELIEVEABLE build I've ever seen.
It's soooo clean, so though out, so smooth and flow...ing (heh) words aren't good enough to describe it.
Truly awe inspiring.
Kei <--- totally failed at words to describe how he feels about this build
Yeah and when I told you this was my favorite build ever you said it was yours and that I couldn't like it anymore, how does that work, I saw it first???
I don't see 1920x1080.
That's because real monitors are 16:10. lol
Just download 1920x1200 and crop it yourself.
My monitor was $80, I ask for nothing more.
Anyhow, I cropped it to the best of my abilities (LOL I always wanted to say that) but it ended up being slightly blurrier than the original.
