Hello Overclockers!

Recently I decided to get a new CPU and some better RAM, because the loading times in BF3 are horrible. Then some complications came, and here is what i changed.

Intel Core i5 750 (With Intels cooler)
MSI P55 CD-53
Kingston 1333Mhz 4GB RAM
Club 3D Radeon HD 5850 Overclocked Model

Changed it to:

Intel Core i5 2500k
ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.1) Sandy Bridge
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600MHz (2x4)
XFX Radeon HD 6960 Overclocked (got it for $180 from a friend, who upgraded to an Evga GTX 580)
Corsair H60 Cooler for the CPU

Just installed the H60 so I didn't do cable management yet.

In idle, the CPU is 22-32c which is a huge improvement compared to the stock intel cooler.
Haven't tried BF3 yet with the new cooler, but hopefully it will surprise me smile.gif

My computer is just assembelled really fast, and I didn't even put in the H60 properly, but I will do it when I get another fan for the "Push Pull" thingy.

So no worries cable management freaks! It will look better! I'm selling my old parts this week, so I'll get enough money for a better PSU and Case smile.gif
I will update with pictures later on.

Right now I got a horrible Zegamax case and it is my first build, so it's quite complicated for me to make some decent cable management, but lucky for me, some of the PSU's cables are allready sleeved.

Sorry for the blurry picture.. (Can't recommend HTC Wildfire as a camera when there is no "real" light in your room)

I apologize for grammar mistakes :-(
