I keep reading where people are saying leave the cards at stock, but then others are pushing them. I know this 6970 can handle a little improvement over stock. ( now in my build im doing now), This is why im going to run xfire 7970 asus dual fan cards. i will not touch the overclock( on these) because there is no need IMO. I like that. Its safe and reliable and will max games out. As of now anyway. Im also going to use a ASUS x79 pro or rampage mobo for them. ( having trouble deciding) ugh and the sabertooth looks good also. rolleyes.gif
I already have a 1250 XFX psu (80 Gold) modular

this is the cpu im looking at
intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80619i73820-
i want the turbo version, is that something that is unlocked in this cpu, or is it a different cpu all together?

NOTE- forgot to mention that my fan is only 35% on the 6970

225Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80619i73820
This item can only be purchased with a combo


There is Only One 3820 for now. They all have turbo boost and I saw one overclocked already to 4.6 with a H-100


OH NEWEGG HAS THEM NOW. GET IT NOW. THEY WANT TO SELL YOU A COMBO DEAL. THERE IS A COMBO DEAL THAT IS 41.00 WITH 35.00 OFF IN THE CART. GET IT BEFORE THEY ARE GONE.

here is the LED strips I am using for my case, its 3 LED's per inch which is far tighter spacing then anything out there. Here are some pics of what I have done thus far:

Here is the LED strip with a dime for reference in the pic
DSC_0618.jpg
DSC_0617.jpg


Put 2 strips on each side of the front all the way to the top so even the edges of the DVD drive glow, I will have a blu-ray burner here soon so i will have 2 drives:
Here it is with no flash giving you an idea of brightness

DSC_0606.jpg

and with flash
DSC_0609.jpg

here is both side in
DSC_0611.jpg

and with flash
DSC_0610.jpg

With the front inserts all put back in, notice how it makes it a lot harder to see the strips and also shows how well the light is disbursed in the case with no hot spots

DSC_0613.jpg
DSC_0614.jpg


Next is placing the LED strips in the top of the case, will be a little harder to hide the led strips but I have ideas thus far. Let me know if you like it smile.gif

I love it ... # of LEDs per inch beats my by 6 led per cut 3 inch cut. Awesome.. I need a source I want to put this in the Lighting post. Please.

Oh.. If you line up the top lights where you have the front that will be out of the way.
