    Feel better, everybody falls short of a 7.9 in CPU score.:D And if you switch to windows 8, the wei goes to 9.9, and your components will only be in the low 8's. it's all good, feel great about a nice system!

    Little parts list I put together.

    @ALMOSTunseen: The build came together very nicely! That case looks great, as well as your parts. Can't wait for you to throw that gpu on water! :toast:

    Decided the GPU water idea would wait for later. An amazing opportunity to put the CPU in a TEC setup came up.
    Specs-
    XSPC Acrylic Dual 5.25” Reservoir
    EK-Ekoolant UV BLUE (premix 1000mL)
    Swiftech MCP655n
    Danger Den Black Ice GT Stealtch 240 Radiator Black
    Swiftech Apogee Drive II (No Pump)
    4 60w TEC Plates with heatsink and fan assembly (Custom Made by Zaqwsx)
    Power Supply with an Add2PSU adpater.

    Thanks to Zaqwsx For selling me the TEC setup and some of the components!

    Since I was in the mood for modding, here are some planned modifications.
    Putting some modders mesh in the front panel, as the stock airflow is horrific.
    PSU shroud to hide the 2 Power supplies.
    Painting the Black Bezel's and mesh of the case blue.

    If anyone has any modding suggestions, feel free to post here!

    Got a package today from caseking.de
    If you're in the Germany/Europe region, you should check them out.
    Came with a nice magazine, and 2 packs of haribo cola jellie's, which were "disposed" of earlier. Delicious.

    Sorry for no updates, been rather busy lately with half yearly's.
    Well, the modding season has arrived!
    Taped and marked the front panel, ready for cutting

    Sanded out a bit more

    Looking very straight..... Got to find my file so I can clean it up more
    [​IMG]
    Sanded and ready for paint

    All primed up, just ignore the bubbles:banghead:

    Now to put the colour coat on.
    Cannot install the watercooling loop as of now, as I am waiting for a replacement top panel from NZXT that has 15mm fan spacing for the 140mm fans.
