- Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2x4GB) 1600 Overlclocked @ 1800.
- 7970 Sapphire Vapor X Overclocked @ 1210 / 1700 with very minor volt increase for stability. Temps remain under 55C.

Very nice, I wouldn't have gone with that motherboard or PSU but other than that it's looking great thumb.gif
Seems like you have a very good 7970, if you increased the voltage you could probably push it quite a bit further.

Andy, the setup has much more in it but with minimal returns, i decided to play it safe for a 24/7 Build.

I agree on the motherboard and PSU but...

I am local to microcenter and got the 3770K for $210 and with the combo package, I got the Extreme4 for $70. Simply could not beat it.

I also got the PSU for $70 shipped after rebate. I ended upgetting the 7970 Vapor X for $400 shipped after being dead set on getting a GTX 680 but wasn't worth the extra $100.

You should keep an eye on this thread about the Extreme4:

Thanks for the link and info. I metered my setup and found its only .01 to .02 off of what the applications claim its voltage is.
