    Just got my new case and motherboard last night, still waiting on my final hdd to be delivered today, so it's a mess right now. Still got all the plastic 'condoms' on the case :laugh:, wiring is all spaghetti .... it ain't purty! My old bones aren't up for taking off the sides so you can get the full impact, it's worse than it may look in these pics!

    I did a round of 3DMark just to feel if it worked, and the room above the card is certainly alot cooler. Which is good, cause the fan draws air from above the card here.

    Not gonna get around to do some full blown modding this week I think, busy moving house.

    They still make Xasers :eek:
    This one looks alot better than the older models though :toast:

    Not really a fan, TBH, but was the best deal on one which I can eventually (maaaaybe) put a Classified 4-way, or something similar, into. Thing's heavy, and nothing to grab onto to move it, all kinds of weird plastic protrusions. Weird... and my last case was a Stacker. Might end up moving back to it. But I do enjoy having a mobo tray again!

    yeah i do like it, but like they say in The Godfather, Im gonna give you an offer you cant refuse:D

    he wanted to trade it for my SLI LE with no extra charge, then im in, he just want it because of its looks

    and btw, the SLI LE has a weird PCI-E layout

    1. is 16x
    2. is 8x
    3. is 4x.
    4. is 4x i think?EDIT: its 8x, but i cant use it to much since the psu is blocking for dual slot cards

    would be nice to have a board that did full speed on the first 2 slots and not that weird config:D

    but overall its a nice board :D

    thats what i'm thinking, + i can sell it for like 300$, then i can fetch a H50 + a cube case and still have money left :laugh:



    well i already have a m-atx 1366 board laying on my desk, and i'm kinda hooked on getting a new cube case, so i think i'll keep the X58M from MSI, it even oc's better than the sli le:laugh:

    in SOME cases that is true depends on the board and the use both make good boards.

    also how are your temps on the i7 and what pump and rad do you use?

    well i was VERY surprised by this little MSI board, i could get 4.1ghz stable on it.

    mind you that its missing the vreg heatsink(you have to buy one your self)

    My temps are kinda odd. even on stock it idles from 36-40 but load doesnt go over 63? i suspect that it could be the fans im using or i need to change from 3/8 to 1/2 tubing and maybe a faster pump? also i was thinking of going tri rad?
