Finally got my new build all buttoned up. Had a couple issues with my G.skill sniper ram (thought I had a bad stick) but it seems to have corrected itself. Everything running smoothly now @4.6ghz with the auto-overclock

Gracias! Had an issue with the OS install that quickly pointed towards a bad optical drive, so I ran out to Micro Center and picked up a little external USB dvd-r for $35 and it worked like a charm. I like not having an optical drive anyways. My storage drive is external as well, helps keep things clean in my case. The build quality on the Fractal Design cases is astounding - reminds me of an Audi. Makes my old Lian Li look like a beat up Honda.

Well the cluster@#@! is a LOT less of a cluster@!@#. I got out some tape, some cardboard, and some hope and got the thing looking and sounding a lot better. Initially my front intake fan was RIDICULOUSLY loud, so I had to rewire my fans so that it was connected to the controller.

Before beautification:


After (only the third picture is truly up to date):




To do list:
- install drivers (ugh, I hate this part)
- buy some sort of lighting kit (taking recommendations)
- maybe making the power supply look better (although with the side on it is REALLY hard to tell it's not black)

Can I be added to the list? Some of you might have seen my build in the HTPC forum (spec are in sig)...











That was at first build, when I was realizing what a pain in the ass SFF builds are, especially re: cable management. I have since added my old 9800GT, and I'm waiting on BF3 becnhmarks before I upgrade the GPU. I've got my eye on the Asus 560Ti Top though. Even with no case window, I love the black/red scheme. It's also small enough to fit in there comfortably.

I am just getting into tweaking my board now. Have a question about the BIOS - I enabled the Extreme Tweak Turbo profile @ 4.6GHz... how can I test the stability and monitor it? Since I've not forced the constant multiplier, I've yet to see a CPU-Z showing the 4.6GHz....

Just be sure, that your antec tubes dont touch anything hot on your VGA.

Cool! What was wrong with the ram? Was in wrong slot or you did not use the X.M.P. profile? I also have the Sniper, 1866MHz @ 1.5v.

Bought mine a few weeks ago:


I still have a lot to do, like buy a new PSU and more importantly a CPU cooler. I have a hard time choosing one because of clearance issues, and I noticed most of you guys have a Corsair H80.
Mounting the rad at the back of my case is definitely a no-go because it would suck out all the hot air from my GPU (around 60°C). So I figured I could try to install it at the front of the case, where it would pull in cold air. The only problem is I don't know if the tube length would allow it.

Could someone please help me out and measure their H80 tubes with a piece of string? I'm interested in the length from these marked points:

AFAIK the corsairs are all around 300mm. The Antec H2O 620 is 330mm, and somewhat flexibler.

Thanks, but it's going to be a tight fit and that's why I need exact numbers. Plus, Google already found me "around 28cm" and "around 24" so I don't know which one to trust.
