I can attest to this, quakecon was pretty tiring just carrying around my 800d underwater haha.

Few more updates..

With the inspiration taken & advice given from a.t. watson I've decided to do this mod to beautify the inside of the 800D.

I seen the evil with my own eyes!devil-smiley-019.gif





The 240mm Koolance radiator in the lower deck



Cut the Corsair fan grill on the mid rack to run the tubes directly down into the rad







Used a piece of acrylic cut to size with two custom holes to place the rubber grommets. Sanded the bottom of it with a fine grit block and used a metallic black spray paint as done by a.t. watson. (Didn't mean to swagger jack your idea, but I loved it soo much I had to do it or the case wouldn't have been as enjoyable knowing the possibility)






It was fun and nerve wrecking at the same damn time tongue.gif I really had fun doing it and loving the results. Can't wait to finish purchasing the rest of the parts to finally get this build done with.

Hey guys smile.gif So I just purchased the motherboard this morning and I'm super excited ASUS Maximus V Formula. Can't wait for it to come.

I'm stuck in deciding the type of RAM I should go with for this Mobo and the amount I should get. I originally was expecting to go with the GeiL 16GB DDR 3 1600 but then I caught the overkill flu which is apparently contagious here in OCN biggrin.gif and wanted to upgrade it to a 2 x GeiL 16GB DDR 1600 kit for a total of 32GB.

As I've continued to do research, I've come across some online literature that stated using Windows 7 Home may have issues recognizing anything over 16GB.


So I decided to go with the G.SKILL Trident 16GB 2400 1.65v. I've researched and came across a posting that stated 1.65v may cause issues with the CPU (i7-3770k) as it is made to support 1.5v and using 1.65v can shorten it's life span.

Also read some stuff that stated anything over 1600 is unnoticeable in real world use and it only would be a waste unless you're benching which I don't plan on doing.

So which pair of ram would you guys recommend for the i7-3770k? Speed? Amount? Cost isn't an issue as I'm saving weekly to achieve my goals to make what will be a perfect PC for me. Just hope you pros out there can guide me to selecting a nice pair of ram.

Alright good news, Thanks to my beautiful girlfriend who fronted $750 bucks out of her scholarship money to put towards my build, I will be receiving the final last 2 items needed to finally put it all together in a couple of days. The last two components needed to finish it up were the CPU & GPU. As noted before I went with the i7-3770k CPU. The GPU selection was tedious, as manufacturers continued to change/update their PCB's I had to continually change my selection. (Pointing at you XFX)angrysmiley.gif. I think I made a better choice by going with the MSI R7970 OC card. I haven't really posted much pics of all the hardware and water cooling components I've obtained so far, trying to save the goods for the build log. But I will continue to update as progress is being made. I'm really excited to get this project on it's way, it's been a long 8 months or so researching, following build logs, drawing out loop plans, purchasing items piece by piece, and so on. I want to thank those who took the time to respond to my questions, I really appreciate it very much. Thanks guys, without you I'd be lost in this whole water cooling mess.

I'm glad you've got all your parts now and look forward to seeing the build log. What you've done so far looks great. As far as the ram, I agree that you won't notice much of a difference, if any at all. But, the 3770K can run the higher frequency and voltage ram. I have 2400 1.65V in mine, and it was recognized right off and has run it just fine. The stats I've seen say the 3770K can run up yo 1.7V with no adjustments. I have no idea if it will shorten it's life span but mine has been running that way since they released the CPU with no problems. If it does shorten it's life span, I doubt I'll have to worry about it.I'll have a new chip before that happens.
