Looks like you pick up a great Motherboard I love ASUS I am not sure if the Seagate you brought is the right one the Barracuda XT should be the one to use. Also you should use a Solid State as your boot drive it will speed up your boot times. I built a ASUS Rampage III Extreme Intel Core i7 950 6GB Corsair Dominator GT 2000MHz Cooler Master Silent Pro 1000 Watt 80+ Gold Certified XFX ATI Radeon 5870 Crucial REALSSD C-300 128GB SATA 3 6GB/s Boot drive 2TB Seagate Barracuda XT to store all the movies Ect. Your going to find the ASUS MB will allow you to over clock very easy. You maybe should have taken a look at the NEW Maximus IV ROG H-2 P-67 MB ASUS just put out it runs the new 2nd generation chips the new i72600k is a 3.40GHz Quad Core it has 10 USB 3.0 ports & 4 SATA 3 6GB/s Ports on the MB insted of 2 USB 3.0 & 2 SATA 3 6GB/s Ports. I brought the new ASUS Rampage III Extreme Black Edition for another computer I going to build for resale but, feel I should maybe gone for the Maximus IV. Good luck on your build

Hey thanks for the comments. Actually i will be using 2 Kingston SSDs RAID 0 for my boot drive, the seagte 1tb is just for data. I really like the i7-920, which is why i decided to use the rampage. OOOOh the rampage iii Black looks like a really nice board. I haven't really done much overclocking myself, so i am looking forward to the reliability this board will offer me.

Here come more parts!!!



Ahhhhhhh....



excited for the triple overvoltage







The sunbeam transformers case. This is the reason I started a transformers themed computer in the first place.



I applied the vinyl to the front door


Removing the stock fans to set up for the ccfl fans



All the Fans are out!



Haven't decided whether to keep these swing out feet, or get some led feet for the bottom. What do you guys think?


Tool free kit


Also had a GT210 laying around, thinking about using for physx?



Not gonna be posting for a bit, cuz im building with my girlfriend, and she is getting ready for finals now, tell me what you think about my current hardware profile.

The GT120 might bottleneck the gtx570.

If Linus is right.

Please remove the ferret from the H70 before you switch the power on.

Seriously though, nice build. I'm clearly biased toward the 920 faithful.
