    superb work, decent hardware......8/10

    one question, though.... are u certain that the psu is insufficent for the 4890 crossfire?
    800w should be enough!

    Thanks for the review
    Yes i have tested it quite vigorously and get a BSD when i push it to hard. I tried a friends power supply and it worked flawlessly. I needed more connections anyways.

    It take a careful hand to make a build look good in that case,, The hardware is awesome but the build needs work.

    That's a lot of tower for what hardware you have. Just a suggestion, is to sleeve and cable tie all those cables neatly out of the way it would really clean it up for ya. 6/10
