BTW, are you planning to purchase a reference-based ASUS 670 or one of the ASUS 670s with an aftermarket-cooler (DirectCU cooler)?

 

Pretty sure I've only seen the Direct CU II ones, I dont think Asus have a reference design for the 670

Oh nevermind. I see that you are getting an ASUS 670 DirectCU non-TOP. My bad.

165 NZD is significant cost-savings so it is probably worth it to purchase from excaliberpc.

Yes haha, not sure whether its worth it getting the TOP ones, I know they select the best gpus but the normal ones would still overclock well. And also stock status will affect the purchase, if its on back order im buying something else, I've been waiting long enough for the MVF to be released

Sigh shipping prices have changed on ExcaliberPC so shipping would be like US$200+ making it more expensive than over here,

 

I'll just settle for a GTX 670 from a NZ retailer haha

Just saw that there is a great deal on the Corsair Force GT SSD on Newegg.com

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-233-191

Priced at $119.99 USD with a $30 rebate! Wish I had some cash so I could buy a few. rolleyes.gif

Oops! Just checked and Newegg is not shipping internationally. Sorry.

My sleeved extensions have arrived today. Will look awesome with the red on that certain ROG motherboard that still hasnt come out yet :|

 

I got a 24pin, 8 pin, and two 6 pin extensions. And I needed some more thermal compound for when I put my h50 back on the new board.

The Alchemy extensions are awesome!! I used the red ones in my last build and I love them. I wish I had the patience / skill to make my own sleeved custom length cables. I might try it on my next personal build.

I took one out to look at and they feel really well done, I was going to sleeve my own but since I wont be seeing any cables coming from my PSU I just went with the Alchemy cables.

 

Im glad you think they're good cables, I havent done anything with them yet. I will use them when my new motherboard arrives, cant be bothered with them now :P
