Shipment 2:

Hello everyone, sorry for this long wait for an update (and the upcoming wait). Since I am documenting all the orders and the new parts arriving, this section of the build log will be spread out over a decent amount of time. If you are interested in following this buildlog I recommend subbing so you get notified of updates.

Shot of the Day:
450


Today's goodies: Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX680 (Click to show)

Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 680 GPU:

The outer box is quite different to what we have been seeing in previous generations, I like it thumb.gif
450

Skipping some packaging, here you can see the boxes that are within the box which is inside the first box (Hope I didn't loose you there) biggrin.gif:
450

Accessories are not plentiful. I have seen much more. Booklet, CD and Molex to 6pin PCI cable:
450

The card itself in its cushioned protective foam (hyperbole alarm biggrin.gif). In anti-static wrapping of course.
450

To quickly "review" this card: I don't think I have to go over the pros, but cons might be the stacked power connectors to some people, and that the display connectors are in two slots because that means there is no option for a single slot mod (well unless you're pretty hardcore).
Corsair AX850W 80 Gold Power Supply (Fully Modular) (Click to show)

Corsair AX850W High Performance Gold Power Supply:

Got this for efficiency and its fully modular design. The gold writing will also accent the rig nicely.

Simple (but very stylish) box:
450

Accessories: handbook, power cable, screws and some zip-ties and a corsair sticker (always good to have)
450

All the modular cables: 2 x 2+6 pin, 2 x 4+4 pin, 24 pin, 12x SATA, 2 x floppy:
450

Needless to say (and to skip some pictures I took) the PSU is in cushioning and a pouch. To move on the PSU below:
450
450

and for anyone who wants to see the rails and ratings:
450

That's it for today. I hope I will get the rest of my Watercooling parts (and find the time to get pictures up of the 800d [not like you guys don't know what an 800d looks like]) up as soon as possible. Thanks for taking your time to read this through and I'm always open to any suggestions, tips, critique or anything else.

Cheers,
Dave

Thanks for subbing, well I paid 117.- Swiss Francs so about $120. It was about 30.- more than the "regular" Apogee HD but it was worth it.
