hahaha yeah - Well it is a one time only thing, unless you disassemble it all.
So I thought, I would love to log down my progress, see how things change, and have a reference for myself.
Super useful, as I know where and how each part went together.

I plan to, in around a week, get out the antec, and redo all the wiring.
To make it a little tidier and sexier.
Although it is a closed case, I still would like to make its inner beauty shine.
It's not always about looks, but personality biggrin.gif!

And cheers dude!

Here's a few updates!

-Got the two ASUS noisy and annoying fans out (this was done ages ago, just never updated it)

-Got rid of the stock thermal paste on the Antec 920, and replaced it with the Arctic MX-2, a report on the crap thermal paste included is documented by me here:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1350571/antec-k-hler-h2o-920-stock-paste-removal-and-replacement-a-shocking-discovery

-Re-did the whole cable management of my system -> this took me a good portion of 2hours or so to do, but I've finally finished it, and really pleased with it. My PC is tidier and much more organised - pictures are at the bottom of the OP, but here they are:

March 2014 - updated my GPU to an SLI 680 config. Bought myself the KFA2 GTX EX OC:

I went SLI because of my 1440p monitor.








Some other updates, that I should have included:
-Logitech G710+ Mechanical keyboard - I bought this for £150
-Anker 8200 DPI gaming mouse
-QNIX QX2710 1440p Monitor OC'ed to 96hz
-Denon AVR-X500 Recevier
-Celestion 3 speaker x4
-Celestion F35C centre speaker
