Congrats on getting that 2600K upgrade btw
It's been a while. I've gone from X58/i7-930 to P67/2500K as my main system.
Having a go at Street Fighter 4 AE at the moment. I'm not very good but, I feel
I have, ahem, "ascended" as I can now FADC!
Will be adding a second HD5850 and installing the H60 tomorrow.
This case is bad for running wires. I need a bigger case badly.

Epic build, but holy graphics card bend batman!
Needs a PCIex Brace to hold up the video card.
My 2600K and a stick of 2GB DDR3 should be here today!! (So the tracking info says)
i bet your so anxious it makes you sick
DreamReaver ! Holy crap that is humongous !
hmm your setup needs watercooling deserve the BEST !
I hate seeing that card snap
That MARS II would be fine in my case. Maybe we should swap cards just to be safe?
"Ladies & gentlemen, here lies the worlds most expensive desktop computer" clap clap clap clap
Jokes aside, beyond epic build there man but ONLY! 32GB of RAM bro, come on you need more then that lol
Seems legit to me.
see now I just wanna stick my finger through that piece of paper to see if there's a hole there
I think I can see the hole right through the paper...
Did anyone go look at the price tag on that Mars II GPU? lol someone lives with mom and dad !
ASUS MARS II/2DIS/3GD5 GeForce GTX 580 x2 (Fermi) ...
For 1500$ you can buy 3XGTX580
GIGABYTE GV-N580UD-15I GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 153...
better yet lol
EVGA 015-P3-1580-AR GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB...
The gigabyte looks better and has better cooling
I think I'd just get a 590 and ghetto rig two 120mm vga coolers onto it ( there's just about enough room if my in eye rulers are working correctly)
Or yeah, dual 580s is fine too.
What's missing from this picture? Besides some decent cable management.
Give up? I'll help out, no effin crossfire bridges!! All this time I have been purchasing motherboards
with video card bridges thinking that there were both SLI and Crossfire ones.
Now that I've finally got a second HD 5850 I discover every single bridge (about 7-8) that I have is for SLI.
Anyway I just ordered a crossfire pair off ebay but that is gonna take about 2 weeks to get to me.
The H60 is looking lovely though
I was also going to say lack of PCI-E power cables connected
Just got my second ASUS GTX 570 Direct CU II in the mail. Going to grab the good camera and take some proper pix!
Quick and dirty run at bone stock.
