Guess what arrived this morning?

Yup.

Intel i5 3570k - YUM!

Not opening this ***** to take a picture of the graphics card.

H100i - 'cool!'

Somewhere in there are my 2 SSD's, Not opening them because many have been known not to ever come out alive.
I hate bubble wrap.

Sorry for rubbish image quality, its my iPod and I'm too lazy to take a picture with my digital camera... That and I lost the SD Card reader.

UPDATE: went downstairs to grab some food... and found this on the doorstep in the rain, all the packaging was soggy.
UPS, quality delivery service... NO.

Power supply arrived this morning, awaiting more stuff like the RAM, motherboard and case.
Why do they have to be so slow at dispatching items?!?! I ordered last Saturday!
I finally got a picture of the graphics card's box.

I know what you're thinking, its a good solid card on the inside. Hardly a spec of dust in it.

It arrived! All 750w of modular and gold rated goodness!

Stay tuned.

Update for you all, went downstairs for some food (again) and found a note on the doorstep from the mail man.
2 parcels have been sent to the post office... Useless man, he didn't even knock and assumed no one was home.
Went down there and just my luck, its closed. What freaking post office closes on a Wednesday?

I shall have more updates tomorrow, when they are OPEN.

I like your internal components,maybe if i were you would change the ram and get a model with red heatsinks , just for the color management...
Other than that it looks really sweet , but i'm just wondering if you really gonna use that mobo as it should be used,if not is just an overkill and the investment just not worth it...you could buy a better gpu with the money you save.
Also,and I am subjective , why that case?is ugly.

Good luck tho!

I will be overclocking the i5 in the future when the warranty expires but not the video card since it will void evga's 20 year warranty.
Later down the line I will be upgrading GPU's and RAM etc. It will be a never ending project thumb.gif

You see?as you have no intend to OC in the years of warranty,the mobo is not worth it,get a mid range z77 like the MSI Z77a-gd65(which btw can do 5ghz)or even a cheper one and the rest of the money invest in the gpu (get a 7970 maybe),will be enough for say 2 years,and at that time you most likely will change the socket also to what is new.
Don't say you will upgrade in time,is just an excuse to spend money foolish...just get now the best buy ,and when the time comes,get the best buy of that time.

Looking in perspective, i5+M5 Formula+660ti < i5+cheaper z77+hd 7970. Buy smart when on a budget!!!
