I wish but I have enough patience to wait a week for it. That's the main reason I'm going x79 is the 3820 is a cheap way into it

Change the 212 plus to an nzxt havik 140mm it works great and is one of the best single tower aircoolers and looks great in my phantom 410.

I am sure its nice but I am honestly wanting to minimize investment in air coolers. I will be going liquid here in a few months and just want to get something cheap that will perform well enough for now till the next round of mods begin.

Put a deposit down on a quad channel Gskill x series 2133mhz set. Should have it shipped this coming week sometime. Income tax check should be here wed-fri and the rest of the ordering shall commence. Also looking like I will be going crossfire 6870's if a deal goes through.

Ram arrived today. Will upload a pic of it later. Was going to order alot more today but the IRS has had a huge error in processing returns and there are alot of people getting theirs way later than anticipated. I happen to be one of those.

Video card will be here in a few minutes and the rest will be here wednesday. All in all I have put 1300 into this build. Hopefully will last for a while. Now to find a desk/chair.

Don't buy a 5900RPM drive! God, it's horribly slow!

Edit: Ohwell, they're still horribly slow though =P
