Will do

I've popped my stock vantage score in my sig. And I will be bedding her in with stock settings until I'm ready to push it further. I won't be going extreme though. Especially not before WC.

What other BMs do you recommend? I've just got Crysis Maximum Edition to see how these cards fair and I'll be installing tonight after working hours.

It's mainly for my work but a few games aint going to hurt And as I've sold my xbox 360...I'm having game withdrawals symptoms!

got the same thing for my first build.
personally i love crysis warhead. it seems as if they purposely made the beginning just for visuals. especially crossing the bridge where the sun is practically blinding you. very awesome game so far.

The first part of phase 2 (water cooling) arrived today and it's the full MB block for the classified from EK.

This thing is of the highest quality and my pics don't do it justice.

Phase 2 is going to be slow to complete but this is a beautiful first step.

Very happy.

I wonder how the flowrate is compared to other blocks.
