    For those of you who are interested, I am building a new computer.

    This is what it is built on: (Intel lovers please be quiet. I love the Montreal Canadiens but AMD too.)

    Motherboard: Crosshair IV Extreme
    CPU : FX 8150
    RAM : TBA (Rccomendations accepted.)
    CASE : CoolerMaster Haf 932 Advanced
    GPU : Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 #1 (Second one to come in May; both reference.)
    PSU : CoolerMaster SilentPro 850W Modular.
    CPU Cooler : CPNS 9900 MAX Red LED. I did the math with the Noctua D-12 and I currently run a very loud Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX....winner is ZALMAN!!!

    Pics to come! :rockout::pimp:

    Everybody loves logs :laugh: :toast:

    The Silverstone 80plus Silver certified modular PSU's generally get good reviews check those out before you make any final PSU decisions. :cool:

    Go with that CM PSU if you already have it, it should do fine. Consider a Silverstone if you decide to upgrade in the future. :cool:

    @ Yo Wattup- Op already stated that he wasn't interested in the Intel vs AMD debate being part of his project log.....

    Out of respect however I will answer that question.

    Motherboard price.

    Bottom line. Oh, and if I could find a 1090T I will not flash this bios.

    Ok no more hating. :)

    EDIT: I will flash the bios...ffs.
