Merry Christmas to you Patrick & all my friends here at OverClock.net smile.gif I finished my [Build Log] today & will say this, it has definately been a challenge yet exciting to complete! I appreciate all of you whom participated & I realize some of the pics were not all that great but my camera seems to have gotten a mind of it's own. I will still return daily & possibly add some different things that could possibly help & I encourage each of you to give some ideas & opinions as well as ideas!

I understand, Been There done that! Repeat Offender myself! coolsmiley02.gif I posted up the Entry & Performance level boxing3.gif 3D Mark Vantage Scores boxing3.gif for your viewing pleasure proof.gif ! For completly STOCK not set in RAID, it is pretty impressive as I do say so myself teaching.gif ! By adding another GTX 670 SuperClocked post-flame-small.gif & installing a third OZC VERTEX 4 post-flame-small.gif & going back setting it up in a RAID 5 sozo.gif it will score MUCH better but that is right now, not gonna happen. The RAID 5 set-up would mean wiping the existing drives with clear erase & starting the software complete install again typer.gif ! Who Knows but for now, it's Pretty Dam Good! applaud.gif NOTE: They are in the [BUILD LOG] nearest the bottom thumb.gif

Hey Gunny, just saw your build log for the first time. Not sure how I missed it before! Regardless, I love the way you explain everything in detail with pictures to accompany each step. This is something that many build logs miss. Most just put up gratuitous pictures with no explanation or have paragraphs of text to wade through with no picture to visualize what point the poster is trying to make. Thanks for taking the time to put this rig together and documenting it!

Build is awesome, nice job!

I must say that the only thing that disrupt me is the sound card. Why a Recon3d? You can have so much better for 200$.

Your correct splinterize, I wasn't really to happy about selecting the R3con3D as it could have been & should have been better but for now, I'll run with it. Later however if you have a suggestion on a better card, I'm open to it! thumb.gif I already don't like it as it is weak as I explained & it does pop & crack while in game. The Astro A40 headset my wife purchased was one thing I can say are TOTALLY AWESOME! I have yet to try the on-board sound & added the SB so I wouldn't loose performance using the on-board but Not sure yet if it is going to really effect it that much anyway. Tell me what you think, will it effect the overall?

Well the only reason why the A40 sound that good is because of the mixamp, actually. Dont quote me on that, but I really dont think that, because of the mixamp, the a40 benefit as much from as sound card than, let's say, a pair of AD700. 

 

If you feel that the on board sounds muddy/weak you could alway try to add a xonar dx card. They are fairly cheap and really do improve your sound over the supremFX thing that they put in ROG mainboard. 3d positioning will be worse than on the recon3d though.

 

 

 

BTW, I really like the metal (or plastic) foil that you've stuck inside your case around the mainboard, it looks really great. thumb.gif

I believe that it's the first time that I see something like that.
