Ok, ok maybe it's time to show myself

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Howdy all, I'm JunkDoggMcLuvin.

I'm way out in Iron Ore country in Western Australia in you guessed it Australia.

Been a gamer for a long time and have only recently found a interest in building PC's and trying to OC to the best of my ability.

I've only just finished my first big build(as I like to think) last weekend.

Here are the specs of it.

Case - NZXT Phantom - I've had this case for a long time, I bought a retail PC that was in it.
MUBU - MSI 990FX GD80 V2 - Why?, I really bought this without researching to much and it needs to be upgraded at a latter stage.
CPU - AMD FX-8350
RAM - Corsair Vengeance CML16GX3M2A1600C9 32GB(4 X 8GB)
PSU - Silverstone Strider 1000W Gold Evolution ST1000G
GPU - 3 X MSI 7970 Twin Frozr III 3GB
HDD - Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB SSD, Seagate Barracuda 3TB

Here is the parts I went with for the Water Cooling

Fans - 7 X BitFenix Spectre Pro 120mm Black Tinted Blue LED Fan
Radiators - XSPC AX240 and XSPC AX360
CPU Block - EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ - Nickel
RAM Block - EK-RAM Dominator X 4 CSQ, 4 X EK-RAm Monarch Module series
GPU Blocks - EK-FC7970 CSQ - Nickel, EK-FC Bridge TRIPLE Serial CSQ X 3
Reservoirs - EK-RES X3 150mm X 2
Pumps - EK Laing D5 Vario 12V DC Liquid Cooling Pump X 2
Tubing - PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing Clear 1/2ID 3/4OD
Fittings - Bitspower G1/4 Matte Black
Coolant - EK Ekoolant UV Blue and UV Green

I had to do quite a few case mods to make it all fit, inluding removing all the internal cases.

It looks messy now as I have a lot of cables to sleeve and hide. Hopefully I'll get around to doing this over the next couple of weeks.

Apologies for the terrible photos, my camera died during the build and I had to use my phone to get these photos.

Well, I can't wait to pick some of the AMD guys here's brains for information and tips on OCing all this stuff.

Look forward to meeting some more enthusiasts like myself.
