I'm in the process of painting the inside of my case red & black.
If I go Intel, I'll probably choose between one of these boards:
ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA ...
ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P...
I <3 ASUS and the Red + Black fits with my plan.
Gotcha! Personally, I would wait just a little longer then so you have more options. More AM3+ boards should surface soon.
I think he and I both are crossing our fingers that we've got some nice options as november rolls closer....
SSD was delivered yesterday. OCZ Agility 3.
Tested it in HD Tune before I saw the threads here with erocker telling us not to do that.
The access time test is ridiculous, though. On a standard HDD it takes about 10 - 15 seconds to run the access time test. On this SSD, it's done immediately (.08 ms access time ) .
Should get the case painted this weekend, then move the current rig (with a couple upgrades) over and do a fresh install on the SSD.
Good luck with the weekend move A little reading for you whilst you're watching the cd spin...
starting to get a little bit concerned.....
@Ahhzz, oooo, depressing if true but I think my stubborn optimism will see me through.
In other news, case is painted. Just waiting for it to dry. Should be able to move the current rig in later tomorrow.
Hmmm. Maybe I should downsample...
Anyway, I've got pretty much everything painted. Only thing left is to finish the doors. (reminder, case is an Antec P183). I've got the cross pieces painted red, and the inside triangles and outside portion will both be black.
Feedback is welcome.
Note to future modders: Take notes when disassembling to ensure easy reassembly.
Assembled (empty) Case
Pics of the assembled case (empty).
I've got my current rig installed and have finished loading Windows 7 on the SSD. Now I'm installing all of my software (shoot me now).
PSU isn't enough juice for two let alone three high end cards should you go that route.
Well ... it'd run a couple 'high end' GPUs (like a couple 6950s). I just wouldn't have any overclocking head room and it'd be running right at spec when it's full tilt.
Thanks for the reminder though, I'd come to the same conclusion a while ago and forgot to change the PSU in my list.
SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 ...
Ok, so it's the same thing but with 750 watts vs 650 watts. Realistically, I don't really plan on running dual GPUs, but the 750 will give me a bit more headroom.
Without researching the 12V amperage needed for your cards, I will say you don't want to be near the max capacity of your PSU. They degrade over time anyways meaning your GPUs won't be getting enough juice after a while @ stock stettings. Then they will cease to function.
Heheh saw this in a sig on a diff forum, and the last three lines hit home so much heheheh

Oh man. Spot on.
Man, you gotta resize those pics
Looks like the Crosshair V is the board to beat....hope these numbers don't lie, and my wallet can handle it....
The more stuff like this I see the closer I am to just getting the Crosshair V before seeing final gaming benches.
Also, 7 more posts will bump this to the next page. That's easier than resizing pics, right?
Want it Want it Want it!!!
Skip that mess, and grab this!!!!
I'm way too much of an ATI fanboy to jump on that. Also, wrong color. (;-)). Looking for red cards.
*sigh* poor poor, misguided man....:shadedshu :shadedshu My heart weeps for the future of your gaming experience....
