    Default New pc rebuild finally complete

    After waiting over a week to get a new mobo and take care of the P8Z77-V RMA and the Gskill ARES 1866 RMA as well I finally got the new memory (Gskill sniper 1866) and I decided to go with the ASUS Maximus Formula ROG board.What a nice mobo and the onboard supreme FX sound isnt to bad either.Getting the mobo to fit took a bit of time as it is a little bigger than the standard ATX but I got it done and so far its running pretty good.But cable management is going to be a problem since to board is covering a vital cutout for the 24 pin cable.Ill have to get a full tower HAF or thermaltake nvidia case eventually.
    Idle cpu temps are pretty good at 30c (4.2ghz)Once I get some benchmarks installed I can get some full load temps and start to get the cpu up to 4.6-4.8 hopefully.
    SPECS:
    NZXT M59 case
    XFX 850 black edition PSU
    Asus Maximus V Formula mobo
    EVGA GTX 680
    Gskill Sniper 1866 8gig kit
    VelociRaptor 150
    Asus DVD burner
    Noctua DH-14 cooler.
    I will also eventually replace the noctua with a thermaltake H220 water cooling system for the CPU and motherboards fusion thermo water cooling option.And some red case lighting.Name:  asus maximus V.jpg

    Clean up those cables. Pull all those cables through the side of the case. Nice build btw. Here's my current rig using a NZXT Phantom.

    Nice one sherardp. What happened to your coolermaster cube case?
    I've made a lot of changes to my build. I had a lot of problems with the maximize V board so I got a gigabyte sniper 3 and its awesome. I also installed a custom liquid cooling system. I post some pics if I get a chance

    Those Velociraptors are burly HDD's. I remember when the regular Raptor first came out, completely demolished non SCSI drives.

    Nice build, wish my main system was as clean as this (6 HHDs 1 SSD 2 ODDs SLI video cards, etc. etc. and a NH-D14 taking up a whack of room), but my secondary one is...almost lol

    This was taken while I was leak testing.All the wires are now under the cover.
    I intend to transfer everything into the HAF stacker (modular case) when it comes out.Then Ill be able to add a couple alphacool UT 60 RADS,and add another loop to put my pair of 680s under water.
