Looks good, how's it running?
Do you do anything else? Such as video editing, graphic rendering etc?

Looks great. Would really love to see how that cooler will preform when your chip is overclocked. The cooler looks really weird but apparently its really good. tongue.gif

Currently, it's just for gaming. I have two monitors set up and I'm likely going to purchase another. So far it has performed quite well with the two monitor setup. What would be an acceptable temperature range for a rig like this?

GPU - A little more, 60 perhaps, maybe a little less.

Hmmm, I feel like 60 FPS is kind of low. Are you using Vsync?

I was under the impression that 3770k and 670 combo is beastmode.
