    So this is my first project log YAY :toast:

    The rest of my build finally came today, it is the one in my specs to the left, not in my sig, but here is what it consists of:

    Will be using my 2x WD 500GB, my DVD Drive and my GTX 470.....

    So as a teaser, here is the gear unboxed, I will be adding more pics of the build as I go and should be up and running in a couple of hours :toast:

    The Board looks pretty awesome and has a quality feel considering the UD3 is the more budget aimed line up of the UD series.

    Ripjaws are just smexy :D

    So heres a few pics of the build so far, Ram in, CPU in, HSF on (this took me a while thanks to the backplate cut out being too small), PSU in and have just spent a really long time fixing up the front panel wires and the 24pin & 8pin/HSF wires, doesn't look like that much but theres a shit load of wires in this case, wanted to make sure I cleaned them up before I throw the PSU wires in.

    When I was a kid I was very patient waiting for Santa to come... then there was the awkward silence as he got dressed and left.

    Thanks folks, I'll be here all week! :D

    Great system NdMk2o1o! Can't wait to see some assembly pics and benchmarks.

    It's a SOB so far man, the backplate hole isn't big enough to fit the Noctua without removing the mobo, kinda fricken pointless imo :banghead: though it's starting to take shape, I normally spend the most time with wire management as I could throw it together in 20 mins other wise :(

    i had the same problem - the damn hole at the back was about 2CM off center, so i couldnt reach one corner without removing the whole damn thing.

    wait, doesnt the storm have an on/off feature for the case lighting, IE the front and top fans? I think those two get hooked to the fan controller for lighting. Or I am just talking out my bum, and I'm thinking of another case, I tend to do that too;)
