New From South Dakota

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello my name is Shane Semmens, I am from South Dakota. I am currently in Afghanistan and looking to be getting back home next month.

Im not new to the computer world by any means. I have built many computers(simple computers) for other people other than myself. I have never messed with watercooling or Overclocking.

I recently purchased the Cosmos II case for myself so i can finally build myself a serious gaming computer complete with watercooling and an OC of hopefully an ivy bridge chip.

Looking forward to workign with this forum. Read alot and seems like theres alot of great guys here.

Thanks in advance for al the help imgoing to recieve biggrin.gif

Welcome to OCN! Nice to see some more military on this forum.

I am currently serving as well, in and out of an undisclosed location back and forth to OEF.

Cant wait to see your build journal, and how things progress for you. What are some of your goals for the build?

My plan is:

Cosmos II Case, with custom window and paint scheme,
Ivy 3770k Processor, Overclocked
Sli GTX 680's
Corsair Vengeance Memory
Either Asus Rampage or Gigabyte G1 Board
Raid 0 SSD for OS and Games w/
2-4 TB of Raid 1 for everything else.

Will be air cooling right away since i am new to watercooling and will read up alot more before i attempt it.

Havent decided on a PSU yet though. Still doin research.
