Thanks for the compliments guys!

Didn't Orthos it last night because I was dying to play DoD:S...it had been weeks since I've been able to play! (fiance only has CS:S on her steam account...) Had a bit of instability at first, but it was due to ram settings, TRFC was still on auto so I had to bump it to 50 and set TRRD at 3. After that, played a solid 4 hour session before sleep got the best of me.

Ambient temp in the previous pics was 28C, so for the most part I'm only 3-4C over ambient at 1.5 vcore. Probably don't need that much, but I wanted to stress the loop and set a voltage that I knew I wouldn't have stability problems at so I could get my game on!

Overall build cost:
Case $70
San Ace fans: $25
New DDC top (not sure if this counts, since it was failure related..) $15
250mm fan - free
Rads, pump, shrouds, water blocks (basically all WC gear) - already had
Fan controller - $14
Q6700 - $40 after selling my Q6600
Dominators - $100
Bgears fan - already had
80mm fan and filter - already had

Total actual build materials ~$100
