Very nice build Sneeky
How well does the Apogee Drive II cool?
I haven't "clocked" anything yet. running at 3.8ghz its idle at 24C and loaded runs right at the 50C mark (prime95). Give it time and I may have the OC numbers for ya, just this thing is so snappy once I set the ram, I don't really need to clock the chip to enjoy it.
Obviously wired from behind.
Those are some dang clean fan blades.
My new build! I may be putting the GPU under water soon.

I like the color scheme. Nice and clean!
Yes the theme was-
Black and White base colours with blue and yellow highlights.
Well... I wanted to water cool my card and I had the other parts ready to go, so yes. Worth it.
Aaaah yeahhh reactor core, flame on!
This is where I live most of the time
As you can see I have a corner desk that is fairly small though fits all my essentials on on, headphones, amp, HTC one X, smoking paraphernalia, Razer Lycosa and Cyborg RAT 3, oh and a tipple of my choice, vodka and coke tonight oh not to mention my Logitech x-530's in 2.1 config behind the monitor with the sub on the bottom of the desk with the case
Can't believe looking at the pics I have a Storm Sniper case as the monitor is wider than it, though it is 27"
Yes, it looks great. A quick question, do you know if it is installed by default? The gpu came with a little guide, on how to install it? And the first step was, "Find the GPU reactor card". I couldn't find it it in the box, and it looks like it is in the card? But I don't know if its put in, like turned around the right way so it works.
Are you guys talking about that blue glowing circle thingy on the top of your vcard?
Yeah, it has a little board inside of it, with more power phases or something in it.
Oh that is cool! I thought it was just another cosmetic design by Msi. (which does make the card look super awesomo in it's own way
Oh how did I miss these pics??
Excellent rig sneekypeet! I love these cases, so many options for water cooling and the slick exterior design is so sexy! So whats the deal with your rad at the bottom, is it just sitting there un-mounted?
I don't know if its installed by default. But it lights up when the rig is on, so I guess it's properly connected.
just lays on its side. it's also just a touch long and why it sits on the slight angle
I need to update my system little with some changes.
I want three color inside, black, red, white, motherboard black-red, sleeve black/red, graphic card black/white with red fonts and fans black CORSAIR with white rings. And only little white led.
Better three than only two colors inside.
That should take you quite some time to find hardware with those exact color scheme's, but I am sure it is going to turn out awesome if you stick with it! Are you goin with a black or white exterior colored case? dare I say red case?
No I know exactly what I need only fans to decide and LED.
I have red/black motherboard, My Force GT SSD is red, my H100 is black with white LED on controller, PSU have red/black sleeve and red fonts... graphi card black white, like this only different wider model
RAM with little white LED, only fans to decide, Gentle Typhoon or CORSAIR SP120(probably because I can change ring color on red or white sometimes) or this new SP120L from H100i and probably one or two little white cathode 6" or 8", one between PSU and side panel and one behind H100 radiator.
It will be one of best looking PC in mid class with some excellent components.
black/red is excellent but black/red/white is even better and not so usual like only black/red or black/white.
And I will use black/white SATA III cables from CH4F package, better is round from Z77 FTW package but I need with white details, it will be visibly because one graphic.
I had a chance to slap on the new cooler so I could overclock my Phenom 920. However this heatsink was so big it didn't fit in my Thermaltake V3 case, so I pulled out this Ol' bench table that I bought from bogmali years ago (never used it till now . I performed a small oc of 3.10ghz w/stock voltage and got her up and crunching @95% 24/7.
quiet and cool?
Yes very much sir!
