Hello from Minnesota!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone-

I'm a long time lurker here, but no stranger to building PC's and overclocking. I just recently built my first water cooling loop, and with my recent purchase of an EVGA Supernova 1300 G2 and Corsair 900D I figured I would join the community and post a build log as I work on my new build.

It was an agonizing process as I decided on my case (Almost went with a STH10 or TJ11) but in the end, I couldn't pass up the Black Friday deal on the 900D. It had been the case I've been eyeing for a long time anyway.

Once my new hardware arrives I will be posting a build log and begin designing the additions to my water cooling loop. I believe you can view everything I have in my current build either at the bottom of this post or by clicking my user name and looking at my rig.

Well, the snow is pouring out the sky today, and I am home from work. The FedEx guy brought me an early Christmas present this morning. Here are some photos of my current rig as well as the start of my new one.

My apologies for the blurry photos.

Its coming down pretty good here too. Im at work though... work is 45 minutes from home on a good day, its going to take me like 4 hours to get home tonight.... but on the plus side I have my trusty alienware m17x and a urge to play bf3 and finally get better at it... or just continue playing bf2 and killing everyone smile.gif

EDIT: not planning on playing in traffic, but rather sit at work and shoot stuff till the traffic dies down.
