Made a bit more effort in taking some decent shots(
About time GB went w/ a single sided clip/locking system for the ram. Its a pita with the Sniper3 once you have the top gpu in place w/ its backplate.
Just for kicks but i'm not plumbing it. Didn't want to push the tube any further to avoid having it stuck on the barb.
Love how the heatsink looks but I'm hoping the EK Sniper5 block looks the part. According to the EK reps, it should look like the OC block:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Sound chip, main reason why I went with Haswell rather then w/ x79. I really don't want to waste time w/ a sound card.
Love this more contemporary look of the G1-Killer logo. I'm also glad that no ammo or weapon style queues were used. The Sniper3 is a bit more tamed imho.
Vengeance has been such a dream. I'm not going back to any other ram. Curious how these sticks will oc. I've read a few lucky folks can push them to 2400. Hope it works with Haswell as well as it did with my old SB and Z77 Sniper3

This is one of the only boards I can find for my green themed build coming up. Not sure if its going to be an assassin 2, sniper 5 or wait for new 2011 boards once ivy-e comes along.
I'll fire up mine tonight to get you some pics but i have no cpu. It should still light up though
