    Just making sure they line up. Will have compression fittings on all the lines when done.

    I get it. What do you want me to say. So I use more than normal. From my knowledge it is not conductable. It comes like that from factory, everytime, for ever since parts were ever made. Less is more is, never, true. I don't wear my pants on backwards. My shoes are clean. My room is tidy and organized. The car gets fresh tank ofpetrol every week of premium gas. Our house cleaned daily. I eat everyday. I don't skip breakfast. Our dogs are well fed, well mannered and very happy. I love using my computer and I don't nitpick. I do everything I can to make sure everything is perfect. Youknow everything that starts off as a joke on the forums eventually becomes a political discussion. I don't need to know where and how my tax money, yes I pay it, is spent for whatever reason.

    I just read this shit in the news:

    We can spy on you. We know your encryption keys for calls. We can read your SMSs. More than just spying, we can steal data from the SIM card, your mobile identity, and charge to your account

    this crap has been going on as long as I can remember. WHen people report it like this in exact phrasing it is just sad that sadomy has taken over true politics.

    Put a tiny rice sized dot in the middle of that GPU and spread it out and put the cooler on top, or let the cooler do the spreading on its own. Now when you take that GPU off with that much TIM its going to be all over the sides. Gonna be a mess.

    Agreed, I was very confused.

    Info about me. You know I'm psychotic right? I'm not susceptible to intimidation. I have a rare onset of an aggressive form of tourette's. When you think I'm trolling the forums, I'm really very much just sad. I'm not lieing. Anyway back on topic. Isn't it great that AMD CPU's can now come in 4ghz form? The one I'm talking about is the A10 6800K APU. It runs at 4.1GHz factory and boosts to 4.4GHz. My highest OC ever was 4.63GHz on my older 920 chap. I'm overwhelmed that they come like that from the factory now. Anyone have one to share?

    Wow major sag. That is part of the reason I went for a Silverstone case with its 90 degree oriented design. Although the 90 degree design is probably doing some harm to other components no idea tbh...

    I'm guessing you already knew this but you know there isn't an 8-pin PCI-E power plug connected to the port on the GPU? Only the 6-pin is connected.

    New receiver! :D Got this bad boy second hand except the remote and volume knob weren't working. I only paid $40AUD to get it repaired after I bought it! It sounds ridiculously delicious, everything is so rich and lovely compared to my old Denon.

    ^The front HDMI work wonders for me.

    Neatly hidden behind screen :) Using my 10 yr old herpy derp stand to prop the center above my screen. I originally made it to be used with my racing wheel pedals to create a more 'sports carish' feel but it kept moving around.

    a little oc there 810/1000 instead of 756/950 a bit more mV and fan to 100% constant damn that VF3000F is quiet even at 100% compared to the XFX solution :D
    but not the temp :p Fermi isnt celsius friendly 99c hit versus 68-78c (oh the 7950 in the Node closed goes more to 88c it doesnt have the airflow of a HAF-XB :eek: )
