Nah, the 'Hippo' name was originally a joke that csm725 used when describing the Rampage IV Extreme + 3930K combo when he commented on my fb album. I linked him to the products before I bought them and he thought that one of the Finnish marketing terms sounded like the English word hippopotamus, which got shortened into hippo. Then after that it just kind of stuck
And the jaguar was bought just shortly after new year from Kenya, ~10 days after I had put the build together for the first time (with the X79 setup). I didn't even know I was getting the phase change setup at this time. When I came back I put the jaguar on my table, next to the rig. And when the SS got here, I placed in on top of that since it didn't fit anywhere else in the room really. And now I think it just fits there
I didn't even plan to use the jaguar next to my rig originally, I just bought it since it looked cool (and I managed to haggle the price pretty low haha). I could also have bought a similar hippo, which I should really have done now that I think about it. But what can you do, I'm not flying to Kenya to get a wooden sculpture.
