    i bet your lovin that setup, i have the exact same motherboard and processor, and will be ordering 2 4890s on tuesday along with a 42 inch monitor ftw!

    that msi motherboard though is a great board! the black and blue color scheme matches nicely with my nzxt 921 case!

    Thats a real nice setup, must have taken a pretty nice investment. What are those things in the 3rd pic?

    well my father is a professional photographer, I could never afford even one of the larger power packs that you see in the third photo on my own (ok, well maybe one but definitely nothing else after that haha)

    Powerpacks? How do those differ from a wall outlet, I'm not much of a photographer, I got an 8mp digital camera and I think the quality is awesome, but I'm not too picky :p

    um, well they are elinchorm flash packs, basically they power the light banks which are super bright strobes with extremely accurate color balancing. the larger packs are 4000 wattseconds (analgous to a 4000 watt SPU I guess, but different) and that is the rating they can deliver in power. My house has an entire extra 220v circuit built in to power just this room's photo equipment.

    I am not the expert on the exact workings of the packs but I can found more if you really want to know

    Ah, so they just require an extreme amount of power and those give it to them. Thats all I wanted to know, didn't need anything technical, interesting though.

    And the magnificent return of the hedgehog! lets call him sonic for now eh?

    sorry I know people will say lapping to 2000 grit wet is pointless but I am too much of a perfectionist for anything less. And no there is no polish at all on that base.

    Aha, the Thors hammer. A pain to mount, but HUGE and impressive (in cooling aswell as looks).
    Keep up the good work :toast:

    I agree its a terrible on 775 and even hard on 1366, but for AMD its super easy the the clip gives a ton of pressure. Provided I had to use a ton of force to get the clip on the mounting hooks of the socket initially after that it was a breeze and my temps are AMAZING. after crunching WCG all night at 3.817ghz the cpu has never gone above 47C :cool:

    thanks tzitzibp :)

    haha, I have somethings I could take pics of, but that would ruin all the fun! it will all become apparent in due time :p

    tests you say?
