    Here are some pics from the new rig. However I won't have the 550 ti much longer, I sold it on ebay today and am gonna ship out monday. Plan on getting gtx 560 if I can find a good deal on one, if not then probably a gtx 460 or radeon 6790. Also plan on putting a 1tb wd green drive to go along with my ssd raid 0.

    P.S. Sorry for the bad pics, All I have is my crappy optimus v android cell phone with no flash.

    I am going to be pulling it off tomorrow and putting on fresh TIM, It could also just be a bad mount.(tightened unevenly maybe) I am not worried about it ATM.

    I would, I get worried if my proc goes over 45C! Either you have the hottest house ever, or there is something wrong with that H50

    45c isnt bad for a processor. Especially i7 920s. They naturally run a lot hotter but also have a higher heat tolerance.

    I wouldnt worry about those temps. As long as you stay below the mid 50s your fine.

    Okay, I was thinking of doing a before and after of my pc.

    The front, this will prob stay the same for a few years :laugh:

    This is my bad CPU cooler, ram and such, yes those are shitty ebay ram heatsinks. I got them because I thought they were gunna be temporary, I guess they're staying. You can also see my 8 pin come from under the video card, it's really short!
    [​IMG]

    Here is my video card, OEM 4650, 1 gig of DDR2 ram, I'm upgrading to a 5750 for my birthday :3 It's ugly, but it works a ton better than this thing.

    Full shot, I wish the HAF 912 was black inside :(

    Here are the cables I have routed, fitting the extensions in there will be a pain in the butt!

    I tried it, but it's too tight for my liking. And I'm buying a 5750 off someone on here. It's okay, right?

    yeah but I'd say just a little under powered for 1080p gaming with all the eye candy on though

    How much are you buying it for. There are potentially much better cards in that price range.

    Hmm, im sure you could find a 5770/6770 for about that price or $10 more. Still seems like a good deal but would be nice to be a little future proof.

    But I guess you could always pick up a second cheap 5750 for crossfire down the road.
