    Swapped the ECS P67H2-A2 for a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4H so I can get the ECS RMA'd. Took care to route cables nicely. The socket on this board is significantly further away from the front bays, and my line from pump to block is a little kinked at the block, but temps are okay for now. I wanted to get some new fans and put in a drain tube anyway. Project for another time, though :)

    I know... I thought the same thing... I might swap it out later on... It's a 140mm btw

    The Koolance block comes with 2 3mm blue led's. Pretty nice to have. can swap them out with others if you buy it.

    I have been impressed with corsairs RMA department. I RMAed a set of XMS2 sticks and got a tighter timing set back! It took less than a week with cross ship.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Thats is exactly why I had to have those fans from you. :toast: I already knew what case I was going to use. Also the burner and fan controller is in there.

    I built that machine with parts I purchased from members here at Tpu. The only things that didn't come from members are the case, memory, ccls, and the hard drive. The hard drive would have if the one I got didn't take a dump somehow.

    Now I want to give a big thanks to all the members here that I bought from. Now you can all see your stuff back in action. :toast:

    Yup Brandon...Corsair is full circle CS. I requested an RMA for my dominator's fans and it was approved within 24 hours. I never sent them because they worked fine OC'd maxxed out without the fans. Now the sticks are being shipped this Friday to Norton for his M3A79-T cruncher he's building.

    I have no problem buying Corsair Products as a result.

    Welcome to the House of the R.O.G.

    Hello guys, I haven't posted in a long time in this thread, my main rig is basically complete, at least until Kepler is released and I finally decide if I'll update my video cards :p

    I decided to update my two other rigs, and here are some pics I wanted to share with you:

    This is my newest build, it's in my bedroom, and lately is seeing most of my gaming:

    [​IMG]

    I'm very proud of this little fella, it's capable of running any current game maxed out and it's also really quiet due to the fact that the H100 radiator is outside the case :rockout:
    [​IMG]

    Here's the TV I use for gaming in my bedroom, I need to lock my keyboard, mouse and controller when I'm not around, otherwise my 2 yr old will make short work of them (notice his chalk graffiti on the wall :p)
    [​IMG]

    Now here are my new video cards, two EVGA GTX480s in SLI, got these cards on sale at Newegg for $219 each! Better performance than a 7970 for over $100 less :p
    [​IMG]

    This is my game room setup, I need the extra horse power from those 480s to drive a 58" 3D Plasma, my old 285s were cutting it anymore, that ugly cable there is the kinect cable, I need to drive it through the wall along the other cables, just haven't been able to :)
    [​IMG]

    Finally a picture most of you guys have already seen before, my main rig, the only difference is the new 1.5 kilowatt PSU I got to feed whatever cards I decide to replace my 580s with in the near future:
    [​IMG]

    I also decided to get a couple more 27" LED monitors to play in 3D vision surround:
    [​IMG]

    Skyrim at 5760x1080 is breathtaking to say the least:
    [​IMG]

    It's a shame I cannot show you the 3D effect in pictures, when I raid the dungeons I feel like I'm really there, with the 3D effect surrounding almost my entire field of view, the surround ambient sound only amplifies the effect, and the fights against dragons (two of them at times!) on the open fields are truly epic!

    Thanks :toast: I have 4 in total, got the 4th one for my main rig, but decided to use it to build a new rig using parts from my previous SB build to have a PC in my bedroom again, I don't think a 4th card would have made much of a difference on my SB-E build with the new cards being released in the past few months, wanted to upgrade to some 7970s afterwards, but they are not compatible with my monitors for 3D unfortunately :)

    Sure mate, just bring the beers :laugh: :toast:
