Eric @ FTW says he will be powder coating soon, but not sure how long "soon" is. Either way, buy it direct from Jim, if you want it custom powdercoated have it sent to smasher. Don't get it done by eric unless you want the final cost to be 4x your quote thumb.gif

Anyway - the 3770K and M5 Gene came in today, so I'll be taking a quick break from this build to put that together tomorrow. There will be vids, and hopefully some high clocks without astronomical temps! One of these days I should get a golden chip right? right?

For me the answer always seems to be: No. :(

Lol no kidding... Had to go through 3 2500k's to get one that went past 4.6ghz with reasonable volts. The third chip was pretty decent though...
Btw I had a good laugh yesterday when a idiot know-it-all coworker mentioned that he blew his 3770k already by giving it too much juice. Said he tried to force 5ghz (and probably gave the chip same volts he'd fed his 2600k) lachen.gif

You should also get some Apple stickers so it won't get viruses, an Alienware logo so it can play games amazingly and some Razer gear so everyone knows you are totally 1337.

Not sure, if you what you want, why not order now, and put the cards in when you get them? It'll take a bit to do the case anyway. I'd just PM smasher if you're interested in the powder coat and find out.

Lol I heard these were more resilient to voltage than people were thinking though? Maybe that was a troll though haha.

Anyway I finished the 3770K build, but the gene board doesn't support ps2 keyboards and I can't find an adapter, so that will have to wait til tomorrow. In the meantime....

PICS!

A board!

blah blah blah marketing - where's the window that the extreme boards have?

Now there's a board

I liked the door hanger - unfortunately this is for an overclocked workstation so not too useful here:

A large box for some memory (32giggles):

Matching:

Oh and a cpu:

Best put that in the socket then:

We should remove that plastic cover too:

Putting in that H100:

Yeah I know no custom water loop, but this is going to someone who can't be trusted with such things wink.gif

miniThief is getting there:

miniThief- now with 100% more PSU:

Don't forget a GPU (9800GT ftw!)

Wouldn't that in all technicality be an infinite increase in psu, considering it had none before?

Nice!

I'm building a pretty similar build for a buddy this weekend, 3570k and MaxV Gene in an SG02. I wouldn't let him get a 3770k. "You're not allowed to have a better processor than me." rolleyes.gif
