    Yes. I added another blue fan to push with the stock fan pulling out the front.

    Not sure if it improved cooling that much, but I needed another blue fan there. :cool:

    Nice. I left the stock fan colors. Orange just looks very nice

    (plus i overdid blue on a previous rig and never want to go back those crazy times)

    Hey guys, haven't had much activity here so i thought id give a update on my side.

    I sold the q6600 and p7n sli platinum to xbones, and then i sold my corsair xms2 to a dude over at overclock.net. Was bidding on a i7 920 D0 last night and won it! :D The profit i made from the 775 rig bought me the chip so i need to come up with about another $300 to finish the build.

    Well im trying to sell my m2000 for $100 shipped right now. Haven't made a thread here on TPU but will do so if i don't get a response from the other guy who is interested today. So that leaves me to come up with another $200. Im getting a $50 egg gift card from my aunt for xmas so there i need to come up with $150. My sister said she's giving me $50-100 cash for xmas so thats either $100 or $50 that i need to come up with. I was gonna put $30 into my itouch so i can resell it for about $100.

    So i think i pretty much have all the funds covered. Right now it's just waiting till after xmas and i get some cash to fix some things and sell them.

    Damn josh sounds like your making plans for an epic new rig.:rockout: I was saving up for an i7 or Xeon build myself but unexpected bills popped up.:( Anyway have you decided to upgrade you gpu's as well? Or just run your 8800's with the new hardware.

    Haha i wish i could upgrade the gpu's right now :( Oh yeah the new build should be pretty sweet! Im thinking about going with this board and this ram.

    That should look pretty sick in the lexa! One thing though, i definitely am very sick of the blue. Green would look good but for some reason im feeling red with this build. So i need to order some red led's for the front bezel and for the side fan. What size led's do i need? I've never really looked into this but im a master at soldering by now i would say. Year's of RC cars you get pretty good at this :rockout:

    Think about it im already dreaming of it. Lexa s with red front bezel led's red led side fan, no cathadoes yet but a slight dim of red in the case with a h50, two top white exhaust fans, black mobo and black ram. All black interior with a red and black OCZ PSU.

    Dam my epeen just got hard! :roll:

    I have one stick of DDR3 that I would send you, it's a 1GB but not sure if you can do anything with it. Not only that, it's not in my possession now either.

    :D

    1GB sticks are soo retro :rolleyes:

    I wouldnt accept to get that ramstick handed over to me for free :laugh: no offense m8 :toast:

    We should all be educated enough to know that filling all of our RAM banks do take a performance hit & lets take for example my own mobo that has 4 Banks now occupied by 2 sticks of 2GB each (4GB are ideal on an AMD platform unless youre photoshopping or something extremely memory dependant, but for gaming & everyday workload its good to go).

    If I want to upgrade my RAM then most people would say "buy another 2x2GB kit" but then all my banks would be filled (+ they may or may not be compatible for various reasons that I dont bother writing about, but google is your friend if you want to know more) & I will have to decrease my overclock becourse of the increased powerdraw of having 4 energyhungry memorymodules (the toll is very heavy, not like double the powerdraw its way way more & the mobo have trouble with handling it except for some higher end ones with a huge pricetag but the toll is there yet).

    So I say I would sell my 2x2GB kit & buy a new 2x4GB kit instead & keep my overclock @ peak performance, ofcourse there is more to say about this subject & I have my own preferences + I can admit to have wrong when I are proven so...

    Wow I sure rambled a lot now :D (I didnt realize it until now) anyhow I wrote whats were in my mind at the moment take it or leave it & now ill leave yall with a Merry Christmas folks.

    haha no:laugh: I was gonna buy a third radiator then slap it all together, but then I found out the rad I wanted wouldn't fit on the back because of the top Koolance rad. So today I decided to finish the official loop. I just have to re-cable manage the case and then I will be done.
