[Build Log] Project Extreme Vengeance

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

PROLOG:

After some thinking of doing new upgrades to my current rig, I finally ended on the fact that I wanted to build a new rig from scratch - as I do
find that more fun + that if I were to do any major upgrades to my current rig - I would basically end up changing out the most components anhow, and indirecty ending up with a completely new build.

I've spent a few days looking at reviews and other users opinion on various components and such, and compared them in my mind in relation
to what the new rig will be used for. Obviously, as this will be my new main rig, it will have to cover most areas - since I do both heavy
gaming, video editing and at times, heavy photo rendering and other various things in Photoshop among running other more heavy programs from time to time. And at some points, whenever I feel like it, poke arround trying in vain too learn 3D modelling.
Therefor I desided that I'm going all out on this one and will build a machine which should hopefully rate somewhere in the top-middle to extreme range.

As stated, the main objective is to build a rig that will be able to handle all sorts of games on max settings, as well as photo/video rendering in the light and heavy range, as well as surfing and office tasks.

For now the following componenets is what I've landed upon, but bear in mind that this is still a work in progress, and I have not settled down on some parts yet.


I were thinking about modding together an ultimate case myself with the help of someone a bit more handy then me, to ensure a good final product this time arround - as I would classify my last mobbing as mediocre at best. Anyhow, after surfing thru, I landed on a case from Lian-Li - which is perfect, as I do indeed love the Lian-Li products, although they are somewhat overpriced.
The reason I landed on this case was, at least until I get it under my roof and can inspect it myself, that it seems to have all the aspects I'm looking for in an ultimate case + given that I did like it's clean and simple looks, I didn't see any good reason for why I should try and "reinvent the wheel", when I could find something that suited my wishes for a case.

WHY AIR AND NOT WC:
Well, I have plaied arround with a few different water cooling systems on my current build. Both "plug and play" watercooling setups an custom made once, which I am currently running on it.

The reason I - at least for now - is going back to air cooling combined with a hybrid cooling for the CPU is that all in all I haven't seen any big difference temperature wise in regards to air vs. water vs. sound. And if I were to create a watercooling setup that were to beat air with usually just max 5 C's, it would in the end sound louder than an air setup. Plus with air, you don't need to think abount the yearly/twice a year maintanence on it to ensure that the system is working properly.

One of the other reasons as well for going air is the price, with aircooling I will save quite a few bucks there, which I then can stuff into other high end components.

WHY DOING THIS SINCE MY CURRENT BUILD IS GOOD?
Well, as I sort of startet up with, I wanted to do a brand new build because looking at what I currently have - I figured that the only way to do any major updates to it, would mean replacing most of the components anyhow. Also, the case it's in I did my first more major modding attemt on, although I am somewhat pleaced with how the result actually turned out in the end - I'd rather start fully from scratch again - and this time I wanted to do it with a ready to go case.

But since my current build is in no way a weak one, I will do some minor changes to it later on. And either have it as my backup build, or give it to my gf.

+ I figured why not blow up quite a few bucks, lol gunner.gif


AND THEN THE STORY BEGINS:

The case were the first part I desided upon, and I ended on the Lian Li PC-V2120B Big Tower.
450
450

I assume the looks of it seems quite boring for many, but I personally love the neat and clean look of it. Perfect for my taste, and perfect in comparison to the rest of my appartments inventory.
And I would also like to thank 3dGameMan for one of the good reviews which made me make up my mind in regards to this case.


The next thing to deside were which motherboard I'd like to use in my new build, and after looking thru a few handfulls of different boards from different suppliers, I ended up with the ASUS RAMPAGE IV EXTREME/BF3, Socket-2011;
500
500

I have also been looking at the MSI Big Bang, which seems kick-ass, but quite frankly after looking thru the few good reviews I found where they compared these two boards + separate reviews, it seems to me the differens in the overall preformance and quality is amloust exactly the same - the only significant difference between them are the amount of different slots on the board and the I/O.
So thats why I for now am going for the ASUS board, but please - if anyone have any vital information that might make me change my mind, please enlighten me!

Now the next step were desiding upon which graphics card I should go for, and what kind of setup I should have it in. As I do have a thing for ASUS and ATi/AMD when it comes down to GPU's, I looked at the HD 6990 and the HD 7970, and after first ending on the 6990, I changed my mind and went for two of the ASUS Radeon HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 to set up in Crossfire. This because of a few threats here on the site (so thanks to all who's commented about the cards) and other various reviews online.
500

Given that I went with two GPU's and all the other planned components, I'm in need of some nice powersupply which can supply me with the power that I need, and there my choise were easy as I had already desided what my next PSU would be even before I ended my current main build, at thats the Corsair AX 1200W PSU;
450
This one should be sufficient enough to run all the components I wish to put into this build, + future changes and upgrades.

The next step were to deside upon a CPU for the build, and even though I wanted to go with the Intel Extreme, I figured that it wouldn't be such a big different from the smaller version, which should compare closelsy to the Extreme when OC'd, so I'm going for the Intel® Core i7-3930K Processor.

Now I had to pick out some memory sticks, and it's here which I am still the most in doubt for what actually to go for, but for now I've settled on two sets of the Corsair XMS3 1866MHz 8GB Vengeance CL9 for a total of 16GB;
300


Like I've said before the listing, some of these components are still subject to change as I am following and reading up on other components
as well. But the once I have ordered already is the case, GPU's, PSU and the MoBo. That said, I might end up changing out, but at least these are the components I've more or less settled 100% for.

When it comes to the cooling, I have yet to make a final desition there. Although I am pretty sure I will go for air cooling mainly, and possibly a hybrid liquid cooling system for the CPU. Given that my current main build and upgrades to that has been in regards to the watercooling system, and I now want something more easier on that part, as I'm tired of working with watercooling systems - although I love WC, I don't see any benifits with having water insead of air as good air coolers compare well against most water cooling setups.

Also, I am considerating to put two 60GB SSD's in RAID for the OS drive - but I'm just wondering, will I actually see any huge increase in preformance compared to one single 90 or 120GB SSD as an OS drive?
Basically I'm planning to have all the most important games and most used programs on a separate SSD, then all music, videos, documents, downloads and so on on a third+ drives.

Other components that I'm currently looking on:
Corsair SSD Force Series GT 120GB
ASUS BW-12B1LT, Blu-Ray Writer
ASUS Xonar HDAV1.3 Deluxe
Corsair H100 (that is if I go for a liquid hybrid, if so I will most likely replace the stock fans that comes with it)




UPDATE 24.01.2012 - THE LIST:
Well, since some of the stuff has started to arrive, and I've picket out pretty much everything for now, I thought it were time to do the final lineup of the components I'm going to use. So... here it is;

Case: Lian-Li PC-V2120 (GOT IT)
MoBo: ASUS RAMPAGE IV EXTREME/BF3, Socket-2011 (Ordered, waiting for it to get in stock)
CPU: Intel® Core i7-3930K Processor (Ordered, should arrive any day now)
CPU Cooling: Corsair H100 (Ordered, should arrive any day now)
GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 x2 for CrossX (Ordered, waiting for it to get in stock)
Memory: Corsair XMS3 1866MHz 8GB Vengeance CL9 x2 for a total of 16GB (GOT IT)
PSU: Corsair AX 1200W PSU (GOT IT)
HDD/SSD's
For the OS: Corsair SSD Force Series GT 120GB 2.5" x2 to put in RAID0 (Ordered, should arrive soon)
Important games and programs: Corsair SSD Force Series GT 120GB 2.5" or 240GB (Not ordered, not desided on which+waiting for funds)
Other programs and stuff: 140GB Western Digital Raptor HDD (GOT IT)
Various storrage: x1 Western Digital 1TB drive (GOT IT), 2x Western Digital 3TB drives (Not ordered, waiting for funds)
Soundcard: Not desided which yet

Headset: SteelSeries Diablo III Headset (GOT IT)
Mouse: Razer Mamba 4G Gaming Mouse (GOT IT)
Mousepad: Not desided which yet
Keyboard: Haven't found the right keyboard yet. Looking every day, but hard to deside. Got a few in mind.


WHY THE 3930K AND NOT THE 3960X?
I were looking at the extreme version at first, given that I felt like going all the way out. But after looking at a few reviews of them both, and some comparison I couldn't find any good argument that would defend the fact that the X version is twize the price as the K - and the only difference I could find from what I read and watched, was that the X version only beat the K version by the lengt of a human hair. So thats not even notisable at all if you ask me, unless one are a bencher and would like the few extra points one get from the X - anyhow, an nicely OC'd K should do just as good.


Well, stay tuned for more information on other components and/or changed/upgrades to what's currently in mind!

Please feel free to come with inputs, suggestions and so on of the constructive type thumb.gif
For the most money is not an issue, but I do have some limits.


Updates will be mainly listed in this thread, as well as new posts+an update here for the more major log updates!
Log 17.01.2012 - Looking at accessories (Click to show)
Been looking for a new keyboard, mouse, speakers and headset to match my new build. Not that the once I have now are bad in any ways, but I don't quite like the feeling of the mouse + that the keyboard has become faulty on some areas. So figured since I'm going to throw away so much money into this build, a few more bucks wouldn't hurt much more compared to the rest.

So the once I've pointed out so far is as listed:
Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500
Corsair Vengeance M90 Performance
Corsair Vengeance K90 Performance
Corsair Vengeance 1500 Dolby 7.1

Never looked much at Corsair's other products, but this time arround I looked closely at pictures and various reviews, and figured I might give it a go. I have not yet ordered anything, as I am waiting for more of the parts I'm currently looking at is to arrive in the mail.

Sadly some parts, like the 7970's have now gotten an update on when their estimated to be back in stock - which when I ordered were 24th of Jan, but today that's been changed to 28th of Feb. So I've added myself on the mailinglist from a few other sites to recieve a notification as soon as the product is in stock - hopefully 28th of february won't be reallity, as I do indeed hate all kinds of waiting!

Sadly we have a limited amount of options in my country for local sites to order from - and I do prefer not to order internationally for a couple of reasons. One of which is the import costs, the second is the stress if something needs to be RMA'd. Anyhow, even though we have quite a handfull of sites, most of them operate with the same supplier/storage partner, so in the end - it's just a couple of sites which actually distinguish from eachother. Anyhow, that was some jibberjabber from my side.

Anyhows and whatnots.... if any of you have any personal experience with the above mentioned accessories, let me know on good or bad!
And please, not any "no don't by that" - please give reasons for pro's and no's.
Log 18.01.2012 - Case and PSU arrived in the mail! (Click to show)
Just before I hit work today I were at the post office picking up the Case and PSU!
Can't wait to get home and have a closer look at it. Going to be some impatient weeks ahead waiting for all parts and components to get in stock and shipped out!

Also, the memory sticks got shippet today. Should arrive within the next couple of days!
Going for the overkill on 16GB for now, might up it to 32GB later on, just to fill out all slots. As I can see I don't have any real need for that much memory, as 16GB should be more than enough - but like I said, I'll go all the way out on this one. So some overkill is to be expected.

Given that I will recieve the parts over a month or two's period, the cost will be devided out over time.. so if I find that I can afford, I might do trifire with three 7970's. Although thats a thought I'm just purely playing with for now.
Log 19.01.2012 - Memory sticks arrived (Click to show)
Memorysticks arrived in the mail today. Now I'll just have to wait for the MoBo and GPU's to get in stock.
Will also have to order some other stuff, new HDD's and so on. But since I have some time to deside given that the main components aren't available right away, I'm not rushing anything.

Will also throw up a few pictures later today of the PSU and Case just for show... not doing any full unboxing of these, since there is already way to many unboxings and reviews of them available online.
Log 22.01.2012 - Some bad quality picks and stuff (Click to show)
Well, just thought I should throw up a few bad quality pictures of the unboxing of the case. Nothing big though, as I didn't see a need for doing any full unboxing and high quality pictures, as there are plenty of that arround on the big internet which whomever feel like it can search up.

Anyhow, few picks of the case:
359
359
Must give Lian-Li credits for nice packaging. Easy to tear appart, but of nice and good quality to protect the stuff during transportation - which is great given the rought handling most companies gives their packages no matter what they say.

359
Nice oponial prefabricated openings for either 1,2 or 3x120mm radiators or fans.

700
Nice and tidy in the back, with plenty of slots, airvents and premade holes for any oponial water cooling system. As stated earlier, I'm planing to go with aircooling, at least for now. This also because from what I've seen, there are not any nice blocks for the 7970's yet. Anyhow, who knows what the future brings, might turn back to watercooling later on when I have some extra bucks to throw away.

359
I knew from picutres and videos that this case would have lots of room on the insidde, but nothing really beats the personal experience of actually looking at it hands on yourself. And I got to say, I love it. Lots of room to play arround in with whatever you'd like to put into it. Can't wait to get started!

Guess this case is pretty boring to look at in many people opinions, but for me it is perfect. Since I desided not to go for any full modding, this one is perfect as it already have everything I need. Only thing I'm considerating, which I have yet to make up my mind about, is to get the interior powdercoated red - given that both the GPU's, MoBo and memorysticks are read. I figured to go with an overall look of black and red. Although it won't matter to much, since it's an closed case - no side windows, but for the times you'd like to show off the inside, it could be a nice little touch to it all. But yeah, we'll see about that. Still have some weeks to figure out exactly what I want to do with it, put into it and so on.. since the GPU's have an estimated arrival to the store at the 28th of february, given that non of the other sites I'm checking out now and then get's it in stock before that.



Also, I were originially looking at some other headsets, but here the other day I were out looking for some PS3 games to play arround with, since I'm tired of all the current games that I've been playing. Although I'm going to jump onto Skyrim pretty soon - just haven't botheres starting yet since I've had so much to do at work lately. But to the point.. I then came over the SteelSeries Diablo III Headset, which I just had to get as I love the design of it.
Looked at it on a few picks and stuff online once the news were out some months ago that the SteelSeries would produce Diablo III themed headset and mouse along with a few pads, but never gave it any more though or looked up on it before I noticed them being released and in store now.

700

359

Well, of course these applied to me very much, since I've loved the Diablo games and played away many countless hours in both Diablo and Diablo II. But appart from that, at least in my tase personally, I love the kick ass design - looks really cool in my eyes.

700
700
700
Loved the glowing effect! Which can be shown in three different levels of strenght, along with some different effect in form of pulsating, steady and so on...

Anyhow, the design isn't everything. Comfort and overall sound quality also matters!
Didn't test them out to much before I put it back in the box, as I'd like to save them for my new build. But from what I tested I were positively surpriced. The sound quality is very good, better than what I expected - but not less than what I hoped for given that SteelSeries are the producer. They work really great for videos, music and the liddle I tried of gaming with them. Smooth and nice sound, the bass were also pretty good, although I will need to do a little more testing on that part to settle on a full opinion there. But overall, nice and smooth sound, good bass without a doubt, even though I haven't settled fully on my opinion there.
It fits nicely over your ears, you barely notice that they're on - so can easely be used for hours at a time without getting uncomfy for your ears.


Also another part that I've gotten under my roof is the PSU.
359
359

359

Not much to say here, the fact that it is a PSU from Corsair says the most. As always, nicely packed in, solid and heavy to the though - can feel the the quality.




Other than this, I do hope that the MoBo ships out this upcoming week. It has an estimated arrival in store on the 24th of Jan, so hopefully it's not much more delayed than that. Given that there is still over a month until the GPU's are said to be in store, I do have plenty of time, but hoping to get most of the parts under my roof within the first week of February so I could start putting some of it together.

Well, stay tuned for upcoming updates..
Log 23.01.2012 - Minor changes, doing RAID, and MoBo postsponed.. (Click to show)
Well, of course the MoBo's estimated time of arrival in stock were postsponed today from the 24th to the 30th. Usually when they start like this, it goes on for a month or two until the product is actually in stock. Oh well... crossing fingers... HATE to wait for things to come in stock...

Anyhow.. Other than that, I originally planned to go with one SSD for the OS and another one for important programs and games. But instead I will do a RAID0 for the OS with two 120GB SSD's, and then add in either a 120GB or 240GB SSD for programs and games.

Appart from some more parts having their estimated time of arrival postsponed, the good news is that a few other things have been shipped out in the mail today. More on that in the upcoming updates once I got the stuff here at home!
Log 24.01.2012 - The list (Click to show)

Just to throw in a little update with some more stuff that has arrived in the mail:
359
359

Well, finally some more components arrived in the mail here the other day. Starting to getting close to being able to start putting it all together, basically just waiting for the MoBo, GPU's and the couple of more SSD's before I can start.

700
I went with the Intel® Core i7-3930K Processor, although I did look at the 3960X Extreme. But after comparing the stats, reading up on some reviews and stuff - I really couldn't find any good argument for wasting twize the amout of money for the Extreme version when the 3930K preforms basucally just as well - and with a nice OC on it it's the best choise in my opinion. The little extra horsepower I'd get from the Extreme version just wasn't worth the double price in my mind.

359
I've heard, seen and read both good and bad things about the Hydro series from Corsair, and for these types of hybrid coolers in general. However, I've decided I'd finally give it a go this time arround, as I personally do like the looks and idea of them. NIce and simple, and since I wanted to go air, instead of water this time - at least for now - I figured this would be a nice compromise. Exsited to see how it will preform once I'm done building and have gotten a decent stable OC. That said I'm not expecting extremly low temps, but as long as they are overall safe and good temps, I'm cool.

359
Not to much to say about this one really. I just wanted a decent one which will serve the purpose of just playing a few movies, CD's and mainly installing from discs. And this one were decently priced at the moment, so I just went with it.
359
You can't really see it on this picture, but they've included a regular matte black coloured front panel for it, for the once who don't like the closy one which is orignially on it. Nice feature, given that I'm not all to fond of clossy surfaces which get's covered with finger prints and **** almoust instantly.

Also I recieved one of the SSD's I've ordered, will have to wait for the two others. As I originally planed to use one for the OS and the other one for programs/games I ordered them along side the GPU's, which still hasn't gotten a confirmed date for when they're available (but hopefully within the next month), but then I desided to go for RAID0 on the OS disk, so needed one more to cover other programs/games. Will also use the WD Raptor disk from my current build, but this one will be for less important programs/apps and stuff.

359

Will have to test this SSD for a little while before fully settling with this model. Read from the commentaries on this product in the webshop that some had some major BSOD issues with this, while for others it ran perfectly without any issues what so ever.




And to end, some good news! MoBo finally in stock, got shipped out today. Hopefully it arrives either tomorrow, or monday... stay tuned!

Almoust can't wait to try the baby out! Now I just need to wait for the last SSD's and the GPU's to arrive so that I can have some fun. But, sadly, they're just confusing me in regards to when the cards will be in stock. When I ordered the expected date were 28th of january, then it becaume the 28th of february, then they changed it to not in stock - ordered from supplyer upon ordering, and now today they've put it to the 31st of march. So not sure what to believe there. Got my feelers out on a few other sites, waiting for emails to let me know once they'll be in stock. Hopefully it won't take to long, me and waiting paitiently does not go hand in hand.


Estimated start of building: 01.02.2012
Hoped to be done by: 01.03.2012 (all depending on how fast parts ship, given that not all components are currently in stock at my option of suppliers)

Log 22.01.2012 - Some bad quality picks and stuff

Well, just thought I should throw up a few bad quality pictures of the unboxing of the case. Nothing big though, as I didn't see a need for doing any full unboxing and high quality pictures, as there are plenty of that arround on the big internet which whomever feel like it can search up.

Anyhow, few picks of the case:
359
359
Must give Lian-Li credits for nice packaging. Easy to tear appart, but of nice and good quality to protect the stuff during transportation - which is great given the rought handling most companies gives their packages no matter what they say.

359
Nice oponial prefabricated openings for either 1,2 or 3x120mm radiators or fans.

700
Nice and tidy in the back, with plenty of slots, airvents and premade holes for any oponial water cooling system. As stated earlier, I'm planing to go with aircooling, at least for now. This also because from what I've seen, there are not any nice blocks for the 7970's yet. Anyhow, who knows what the future brings, might turn back to watercooling later on when I have some extra bucks to throw away.

359
I knew from picutres and videos that this case would have lots of room on the insidde, but nothing really beats the personal experience of actually looking at it hands on yourself. And I got to say, I love it. Lots of room to play arround in with whatever you'd like to put into it. Can't wait to get started!

Guess this case is pretty boring to look at in many people opinions, but for me it is perfect. Since I desided not to go for any full modding, this one is perfect as it already have everything I need. Only thing I'm considerating, which I have yet to make up my mind about, is to get the interior powdercoated red - given that both the GPU's, MoBo and memorysticks are read. I figured to go with an overall look of black and red. Although it won't matter to much, since it's an closed case - no side windows, but for the times you'd like to show off the inside, it could be a nice little touch to it all. But yeah, we'll see about that. Still have some weeks to figure out exactly what I want to do with it, put into it and so on.. since the GPU's have an estimated arrival to the store at the 28th of february, given that non of the other sites I'm checking out now and then get's it in stock before that.



Also, I were originially looking at some other headsets, but here the other day I were out looking for some PS3 games to play arround with, since I'm tired of all the current games that I've been playing. Although I'm going to jump onto Skyrim pretty soon - just haven't botheres starting yet since I've had so much to do at work lately. But to the point.. I then came over the SteelSeries Diablo III Headset, which I just had to get as I love the design of it.
Looked at it on a few picks and stuff online once the news were out some months ago that the SteelSeries would produce Diablo III themed headset and mouse along with a few pads, but never gave it any more though or looked up on it before I noticed them being released and in store now.

700
700
359

Well, of course these applied to me very much, since I've loved the Diablo games and played away many countless hours in both Diablo and Diablo II. But appart from that, at least in my tase personally, I love the kick ass design - looks really cool in my eyes.

700
700
700
Loved the glowing effect! Which can be shown in three different levels of strenght, along with some different effect in form of pulsating, steady and so on...

Anyhow, the design isn't everything. Comfort and overall sound quality also matters!
Didn't test them out to much before I put it back in the box, as I'd like to save them for my new build. But from what I tested I were positively surpriced. The sound quality is very good, better than what I expected - but not less than what I hoped for given that SteelSeries are the producer. They work really great for videos, music and the liddle I tried of gaming with them. Smooth and nice sound, the bass were also pretty good, although I will need to do a little more testing on that part to settle on a full opinion there. But overall, nice and smooth sound, good bass without a doubt, even though I haven't settled fully on my opinion there.
It fits nicely over your ears, you barely notice that they're on - so can easely be used for hours at a time without getting uncomfy for your ears.


Also another part that I've gotten under my roof is the PSU.
359
359
359
359

Not much to say here, the fact that it is a PSU from Corsair says the most. As always, nicely packed in, solid and heavy to the though - can feel the the quality.




Other than this, I do hope that the MoBo ships out this upcoming week. It has an estimated arrival in store on the 24th of Jan, so hopefully it's not much more delayed than that. Given that there is still over a month until the GPU's are said to be in store, I do have plenty of time, but hoping to get most of the parts under my roof within the first week of February so I could start putting some of it together.

Well, stay tuned for upcoming updates..

Will throw up some benchmarks as soon as I get the baby together! First some stock once, and then once I've been able to squeeze out some more power if the OC'ing goes well, I'll throw up a set of new benches!

Log 27.01.2012 - Some more stuff arrived in the mail here the other day...

Just to throw in a little update with some more stuff that has arrived in the mail:
359
359

Well, finally some more components arrived in the mail here the other day. Starting to getting close to being able to start putting it all together, basically just waiting for the MoBo, GPU's and the couple of more SSD's before I can start.

700
I went with the Intel® Core i7-3930K Processor, although I did look at the 3960X Extreme. But after comparing the stats, reading up on some reviews and stuff - I really couldn't find any good argument for wasting twize the amout of money for the Extreme version when the 3930K preforms basucally just as well - and with a nice OC on it it's the best choise in my opinion. The little extra horsepower I'd get from the Extreme version just wasn't worth the double price in my mind.

359
I've heard, seen and read both good and bad things about the Hydro series from Corsair, and for these types of hybrid coolers in general. However, I've decided I'd finally give it a go this time arround, as I personally do like the looks and idea of them. NIce and simple, and since I wanted to go air, instead of water this time - at least for now - I figured this would be a nice compromise. Exsited to see how it will preform once I'm done building and have gotten a decent stable OC. That said I'm not expecting extremly low temps, but as long as they are overall safe and good temps, I'm cool.

359
Not to much to say about this one really. I just wanted a decent one which will serve the purpose of just playing a few movies, CD's and mainly installing from discs. And this one were decently priced at the moment, so I just went with it.
359
You can't really see it on this picture, but they've included a regular matte black coloured front panel for it, for the once who don't like the closy one which is orignially on it. Nice feature, given that I'm not all to fond of clossy surfaces which get's covered with finger prints and **** almoust instantly.

Also I recieved one of the SSD's I've ordered, will have to wait for the two others. As I originally planed to use one for the OS and the other one for programs/games I ordered them along side the GPU's, which still hasn't gotten a confirmed date for when they're available (but hopefully within the next month), but then I desided to go for RAID0 on the OS disk, so needed one more to cover other programs/games. Will also use the WD Raptor disk from my current build, but this one will be for less important programs/apps and stuff.

359

Will have to test this SSD for a little while before fully settling with this model. Read from the commentaries on this product in the webshop that some had some major BSOD issues with this, while for others it ran perfectly without any issues what so ever.




And to end, some good news! MoBo finally in stock, got shipped out today. Hopefully it arrives either tomorrow, or monday... stay tuned!

Edit:
Another good news, the estimated arrival of the GPU's in stock has been changed from 28th of february to the 3rd. Anyhow, this is an unconfirmed date - but I'm crossing my fingers!


Now I'll need to hurry checking up prices on powder coating, in case I deside to getting the interior of the case painted.

Woke up to a text on my cell today, which indicated that the motherboard had arrived!
Rushed up to the post office to pick it up, what a beauty;

Almoust can't wait to try the baby out! Now I just need to wait for the last SSD's and the GPU's to arrive so that I can have some fun. But, sadly, they're just confusing me in regards to when the cards will be in stock. When I ordered the expected date were 28th of january, then it becaume the 28th of february, then they changed it to not in stock - ordered from supplyer upon ordering, and now today they've put it to the 31st of march. So not sure what to believe there. Got my feelers out on a few other sites, waiting for emails to let me know once they'll be in stock. Hopefully it won't take to long, me and waiting paitiently does not go hand in hand.

Ordering them from a norwegian site, www.komplett.no. And since I'm from Norway, the options of sites to order from it quite limited, especially since half of them uses the same domestic supply storage.
Anyhow, sent them an email requesting further details, if not - I might go for the Sapphire's 7970's instead as they've got a confirmed date for 7th of february.

I were thinking about perhaps ordering from abroad, but that would be quite pricy since the regular import tax is 25% on top of the total price of the order.
