why exactly would you want to? thats a pretty sweet rig.

you could get some more speed out of your processor, a i7 960 should be good for a easy 3.8-4ghz overclock on air. your running a water cooling system so you should be able to make it to 4ghz unless you have a really hot processor.

only other improvement which would allow you to push some more out of your system is if you went to watercooling the whole system.

Thanks Kal777 I'm thinking of trying the overclock when I have some spare cash. I was thinking of going upto an Extreme 6 core, but at £800 for the processor I could afford to fry 4 of these 960 chips trying. Some extra liquid would help on the GTX's to allow some serious overclocking of the core and memory settings.

You are right it's a really sweet system that I have unfortunately had to wait a long time for. A lot of the guys in the office are really jealous and its caused me some trouble acquiring and getting bedded in.

After some initial hard disc issues and the hibernate mode settings with 24 GB RAM and the sleep file on the drive. Once hibernate was switched off and the backup file deleted the problem was solved.

"Windows tried to write a 24GB recovery file every time the computer went into hibernate.
You can imagine, on a 48GB SSD with windows 7 ultimate installed, the computer became unusable and unstable. Once the file was deleted and this feature was de-activated the system drive was able to write virtual memory and function. Even with 2TB of file storage. I wanted the SSD to run all system files and use the RAID drives for storage."
