    Well that's understandable :D

    I'm trying to sell my Adaptec 5805 and my 8 SAS drives so I can buy one or two :)

    Well, one is for OS installs(Corsair ForceGT 60 GB), one for SATA 3 Gb/s testing(Corsair F60 60 GB), and one for SATA 6 Gb/s testing(Crucial M4 128 GB). Can't do reviews without them, so contrary to your thoughts, three is not enough!:roll:


    The fourth, of course, is my personal drive, but it's still getting used in reviews. I need another, so I can RAID the dual Crucial M4's!!!:pimp:


    No extras here!

    And there was me thinking about replacing my 8 SAS Seagate Cheetah's with 8 M4's!! :roll:

    What setup is that? it doesn't match your system specs as I can clearly see "ASRock" on one of the VRM heatsinks on the mobo.
    How are temps?

    Not gona win any awards, but I am happy with how operation cheap skate turned out :laugh:

    Only spent $550 for the cpu, mobo, gpu, memory, ssd, and case along with the drives, psu, and heatsink I already had. This Lian Li case with aluminium paneling looks so much classier on the outside than all the gaudy plastic cases I've had over the years too.

    Got another GTX670. Strangly enough, I don't feel the need to put it in SLI just yet.
    Most of the games I'm playing are old and less demanding. A single card could handle them easily even at max setting.

    Decided to put another HDD cage back in so I can add more HDD in the future.

    [​IMG]

    Tidied up cables a bit. My 'VGA fan' now is secured in place with duck tape.

    [​IMG]

    Cable management is difficult at the back of HDD cage, where space is very limited.

    My new mouse!!! Corsair M60 is so darn beautiful with aluminium unibody. It's very comfortable too.

    nice!
    you should be able to keep pushing with temps like that.
    41 idle is slightly high but 62 load is great. you needn't be concerned about temps until ~75 depending on preference.
    how exactly is the mobo damaged? I had a "damaged" x48 board(both LAN controllers and audio went POOF!) that pushed my b3 q6600 to 3.6 stable.

    My final upgrade pics will be coming shortly!! Ah, that's a good feeling.

    I just ordered my 2nd and 3rd monitors yesterday (Dell U2412m).

    And I just realized my most recent picture is with my Samsung 22" monitor, not my current single Dell 24".

    Well, use your imagination. The monitors shipped this morning.
