Damn nice 775 Rig there!!
Thanks - Just threw it together this weekend. Those GTX 295's have to go tho...all I had lying around and they just put out too much heat.
Found these on ebay... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-...US_Server_CPUs_Processors&hash=item5650861b17 Someone may get lucky... http://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-790i-L...006135837?pt=Motherboards&hash=item19d87b361d
Aaah those GTX 295, the double PCB ones. That's one of my all-time favourite cards. A lot of people say it looks like VHS tape, but for me its got a special charm. I am not sure what exactly lures me into this card, but those fins on the side have always looked ferocious to me. Great card IMO.
Cooler sorta broke so I put the OEM intel one on.
UNITY = bloat
Turn that evil in the background off
English is not my first language so I still don't understand. Oh well nevermind it's not important as long as I'm satisfied with what I got.
And realistically, that's all that matters.
I'm putting the system together now, so soon there will be pictures! I just have to say I really really really don't like the AC Accelero S1 plus. I like it, but the adhesive for the heatsinks is horrible. You get two bags you're supposed to mix for five minutes, which I did. I probably did 6 or 7 minutes or vigourous mixing. Yet the sinks for the VRM's just don't stick, they just slide around. Plus the stuff gets f'kin everywhere, so I dread the day I have to clean up around the VRMs. WHAT IS WRONG WITH GOOD OL THERMAL TAPE AC???
But yeah pics in a couple of hours when the gluethermalpoopgoo has hardened a bit.
@ krazy owl: He means Ubuntu nowadays uses Unity and he think it's bloated ie full of stuff you don't want or need. I say he talks out of his bottom. And I also say if you want a lightweight Ubuntu Lubuntu is the best imo. I like it very much.
3570k oc'ed to 4.5, Ordered a new case nzxt Phantom
I want a new PSU and a new case. If only.
Eh, work on that cable management a bit and that case will last you a bit longer
It is bloated. And when you're running older hardware (P4, 2gb RAM) it makes a good bit of difference.

Meh cable management isn't that important to me. It's just ugly and sucky.
It isn't bloated because you can't run it properly on older hardware. I'm not a fan of it, but I wouldn't call it bloated.
Anyway I'm not very happy with the GPU temps, they reach about 80 C when gaming, which is 10 C more than with the stock cooler. I know it's passive, but I still think it should be a bit lower than that. Airflow isn't very good though, will see if I can find a silent fan in my Murderbox of coolers. Plus I had to remove the Accelero because the VRM sinks kept falling off, so I might have botched the installation a bit there. I did find some sinks, with thermal tape on them, from another Accelero I had some years back.
tl;dr need moar brain
If you really like his mod go to the case mod section of the site and up-vote him, the trolls got to his post first :shadedshu

Here is mine
With the LED lights off.
This system has 2x XSPC EX480 and 1 EX360 in the loop, 2x MCP355 with EK Top, Apogee HD block and 2x GTX680 XSPC blocks for my GTX670s.
These were recent pics after I replace my 6950 for GTX670 in SLI - This is my case labs build. (Rig1 in system specs)
I need to get some better pics.
Pictures are no good. You can upload them here for free.
Pictures are not availaible due to the fact that you need a suscription to this website. Thank you!
Ahh.. Sorry.. Ill re upload them.
Nice, those mSata drives are zippy little things. I had one as an OS drive in my lenovo ideapad before I sold it.
The problem is that the mSATA connectors on MotherBoards are SATA II 3Gbps and not 6Gbps ...

Well that's just not fair. Show us what's inside, dammit!
