    Great build! Heh, if I were doing the same, I would use the parts you're using. I can't wait to see your OC results. :toast:

    geezus that video card is almost as big as the entire PC

    I knew this was going to be a wolf in lambs clothing it pretty well eats 3dmark and spits out the bones

    great work [H] just goes to show size isn't always better when you pick the right parts it bloody well rocks

    Those temps are amazingly good for a 3770K. I have a bit beefier w/c loop and get 28c higher temps under load at 4.6ghz same voltage and it's considered rather normal. It almost seems as if your chip has the IHS soldered on.

    What program are you using for loading the CPU?

    * I was thinking you were using some burn test.

    Looks like a 3D Mark 11 worker thread, but there could be something else running in the background.

    You must have got a really good chip, or perhaps one with fluxless solder in it. ;)

    Or did you delid it and just aren't telling? :p

    3D Mark 11 so it's a soft load.

    correct

    Yes definitely nice..and I am probably doing something similar next myself. Not quite ready for the expense though and also waiting on the Gigabyte Z77N-WiFi or possible the eVGA board about to come out (though the supposed $200 price plus a couple other things have me leaning elsewhere). Possibly will go with a Fractal case tho too.

    Great choice in burner too; I got BR movies working with mine in VLC btw (Google it...the key is use the 64-bit version). Don't buy any crapware for that purpose!

    Man this case screams for a window the way the video card HSF is so prominently displayed like that. Especially if one also has a fancy loop!

    9/10

    Heh I was looking forward to running 7850 2GB Crossfire next for great bang-for-buck...but then I got really interested in Mini-ITX. Time for something different! :)

    Yeah I really hope this opened peoples eyes to what small form factor can accomplish these days, at the LAN I was challenged to a benchmarking contest by a friend with a big rig with similar stats, I didn't crush him but I was victorious.

    Yeah...this case is now OOS pretty much everywhere except this one place I've never heard of that wants $23 shipping.

    we're all allowed a derp moment every now and then

    well all I can say [H] is that I'm very very impressed it has turned out to be one hell of a build that performs like a much bigger machine just without the huge foot print :toast:

    and good to see you beat :nutkick: ya mate in the bench comp
