Zombo's I5-760 is too slow, time to upgrade build! (has pics, naked wimminz, etc)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So a year and a bit ago, I created the I5 monster system of mine. Build thread at http://www.overclock.net/t/853062/i5-on-steroids-zombos-down-under-build-getting-somewhere

As I am a tidy PC fanatic, I spent a LOT of time on cable management, selecting quality components and generally mucking around till I was extremely impressed with the looks and functionality of the system.

It ended up looking like this at the end of the build...

After about 8 months, I decided to upgrade by adding better RAM, better PSU and another 6870 in Crossfire. This proved to be a fantastic system for playing BF3 biggrin.gif

Currently she sits like this...

2x 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3's in RAID 0
Kingston HyperX 8GB Gaming RAM

Now I've gotten heavily into DSLR photography, do a lot of gaming and also general web surfing etc. I also am a gadget whore so time for upgrades tongue.gif

Intel Core i5 3570K Ivy Bridge Unlocked 3.4GHz
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA1155 Motherboard

2x 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3's in RAID 0 (going to use this as the storage)

Nice, you'll be happy with that Agility3. I love mine. Your cable management does look outstanding. Much better then mine lol

Edit: I notice you plan on keeping that H50 for the IB processor. I'd recommend against this if you plan on OC'ing (who isnt?! lol) Its not very efficent and I could see some overheating issues as IB processors get very toasty.
