    ahhh, love messy tech station setups :laugh: They just look good somehow.

    I've only had the BFG which is my current one. Although to me Corsair is #1 in modular though.

    corsair an bfg are also very nice.

    but i think that corsair might be a bit overrated, i know of other psu's that have better specs for less money:p

    well, imma hed of to the bed, sooooooooooooo tired now, almost sleeping here while i'm writing

    but its been a decent day , got the i7, got it up and running smooth, oc'ed it without ANY problems, and now its crunching away:D

    cya

    Got my Sunbeam PCI Wherever Rack in today. I have it installed already empty though. Later I will remove the board and start with the H50 Installation once again :rockout: I'll keep you guys posted.

    Don't you love those things? I have one that still needs to be added to my MM case. But, I bet you haven't modded yours like I have. :p


    Wow, haven't said that in a LONG time.

    Replaced my Gigabyte X58 UD4P with the X 58 Extreme:

    The Fenrir does a pretty good job keeping the i7 cool:

    I am waiting for a new backplate for the Apogee GTZ. Then I will see about figuring out (never used splitters before) how to water cool the nb with the supplied 3/8" nozzles as I use 1/2".
    This board requires a higher VCore to run stable. My ASUS and EVGA boards run at 1.26 to 1.28.

    Gotta love the hot swap bay of the Obsidian 800d. :D Ready to go with no adapters, just 300MB/s read/writes :D

    Some fun numbers:

    Compared to two 320GB WD AAks in Raid0:

    [​IMG]

    And just for fun, one single Nova 128GB:

    Oh, may have an opportunity to test these on a Sata 3 board in the up coming weeks. :D Anyone with ideas on how to show the benifits of Sata 3 over Sata 2(aside from mech vs ssd) please let me know.

    That case looks oddly familiar. It's a pretty good little case isn't it?
