    I got board. I had enough parts laying around to put together a pc. I also had an old Dell 2400 case I painted a while back so I added some carbon bling.

    Specs E7300 C2D, DD3 1333 4 Gb, 40 Gb IDE, 430PSU,

    Nice! good to see someone get some potential out of those dell cases. Have you done the side panels with the Carbon Fibre tape? I imagine it'd look pretty damn good.

    I haven't decided what to do with the side panel. I dont think I waste that much tape. Maybe a window or some vents ;)

    I don't care what anyone thinks... I think Intel stock coolers look pretty great for what they are.

    Socket 478 coolers were very cool, still have one ;)
    Socket 775 coolers were okay.
    Socket 1155/1156 coolers not so much... atleast for me, way too thin!

    You're contemplating dropping that 3570k and going lga2011? Why? That's a huge expense, new proc, new board, probably some new/more ram... Just grab a Maximus V and you'll be happy!:toast:
    Looking great, btw!

    GTX 460 SE continues to die after baking multiple times so i had to replace it, jes a mainstream GTX 660 OC

    Seeing CPU usage much higher now (and GPU usage not maxing out when i still have my 460SE) so it looks like it reaching its limit, time to get a 3570K i guess

    I'm using a small drawner handle to hold the water kit in place :pimp:

    [​IMG]

    The PSU is turned up so that it draws air from the top, the water kit does too.

    Goddamned SSD is BSODing on me ATM :banghead: Was working fine before :confused:

    Hi again all,

    I recently treated myself to a bitfenix prodigy case (tis the limited edition orange one) for my lanbox. I have reused the HDD's and GPU. But bought some new bits for it such as new cpu, mobo, SSD, ram, cooler. I also had a spare silverstone 180mm air penetrator fan I put in the front for extra awesomeness.

    I'm still deciding on where the rad should be placed on the roof or the back. But I'm happy with it atm.

    The PSU was the biggest pain the ass to put in though. It took me almost an hour to try and squeeze it in. :O

    Note: sorry for the poor pictures, I had bad lighting in my study.
