And please tell me how those ssd perform. wink.gif

290x is an excellent card! ..Only thing is if you play Batman, Borderlands, CoD Ghost, Metro Last light, Daylight, Assassin's creed, or Warface or similar titles, you won't be able to run PhysX to render some fog and particles etc. On the flipside, if you play BattleField 4 mainly, you get mantle which utilizes your cpu better and some other stuff that brings you enhanced performance.

There certainly is & I am saving that spot with hopes of the next GPU cycle being single slot for a tri-sli + 120rad overkill. I love purple as well & even more paired with the Gunmetal wubsmiley.gif

I accidentally left the PC running while at work today but didn't have any leak issues, so now I am installing w8



Fan controller & LEDs are to follow since they arrived today

I've of course run into some issues and think the PSU is crapping out. doh.gif

After all it is five years old and has been under extremely heavy use throughout it's life span, I plan to measure how much space I have with pump clearance & will be looking to buy a new one + custom cables sooner than expected.

Here is my current messy W.I.P

I was going to say that your PSU is to small for them cards you have in there. I would look a 1200w for sure. thumb.gif Its not the age its the drawing of power when required but yes age also plays a roll but 5 years ant that bad. smile.gif

@MocoIMO

Head of to here and check your system power usage

http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

You already have a good PSU there but not for the current build i would look at higher watts. thumb.gif

Lol you can go check the power usage for mine on my build smile.gif

Here is my current messy W.I.P

Think my Silverstone 850w is slowing dying from my 290x crossfire, its starting to shut down by it self when mostly gaming. Thinking about getting 1000 or 1200 watts psu from Silverstone. other than that, skipping X99, going for Skylake when it releases and get S5 with Pedestal. And any lovely updates? wubsmiley.gif

Skylake chipset will be replacing the z97 1150 sockets but will be a while before that all falls into play

Might just grab a EVGA 1600 since I plan to tri sli in the future, If the measurements clear my pump location then I will likely pull the trigger tonight thumb.gif
