Sorry I haven't posted any pictures. I want to. I just need to step a little more into the 21 century and get me a digital camera.

Overclockers

There is an Overclock.co.uk aswell, but those three are the best three, with very good prices and very reliable service to boot.

As far as you're GPU goes, for 200 smackeroonies you can get yourself a 460 or a 470 on the Green Team:- http://www.scan.co.uk/Shop/Computer-...-E-(448-Cores)
Outta those, I highly recommend a 1GB 460.
The MSI Cyclone or HAWK Talon Attack, The EVGA FTW and the Gigabyte SOC are the cream of the crop there, and the Asus TOP at Overclockers.

I recommend them over the 470 due to the fact the 470 runs much hotter (thus upping your case ambient), consumes more power, and the 460 at OC'd levels keeps up with the 470 easily (except at stupid high res).
You can always put back the 40 quid into savings for a second and get "SLI Hacked" Drivers for your Mobo and run SLI later, or pick up the 560 when it arrives, or the 570 when it drops in price.

For the red Team you have:-
6850, 5850 and 6870

There's also an XFX 5870 going at Scan and Overclockers for 206 and 187 quid.

If you went for an X4, I'd leave the 965 and hit up the 970 if you're gonna go all out it's newer and OC's better, and AFAIK doesn't run as warm as the 965.
For the X6's you've also got the newer 1100T, as again, the 1090T while a brilliant chip, is older, the newer chips will run better in general.
You're paying up to 30 quid more for the 1100T over the 1090, but it's not just the 100Mhz increase you're paying for, it's newer revised, so again will run better and slightly cooler than the 1090T.
With cool temps being your friend with AMD's, every degree helps.

To be honest, it depends on the money you're willing to throw into the build, and if you'd any plans to upgrade to Bulldozer AM3+ next year, or rather how long you wanted this build to last. Also what you primarily use your PC for. (Solely gaming with web browsing, any video or picture rendering etc.)
Wow thanks i didn't expect such a really good reply
I am definitely going to buy the x6 1100T i, for GPU the MSI Cyclone looks really cool and benchmarks look very good, i am not sure wheather to get this or ATI 6 series, the NVIDIA GPU overclocking utility seems the most suited to me though. Thanks again for the informative reply that helped me think for other alternatives.
Hello Shadow of Intent i see you have a really good graphics card and a Corsair TX 650, does the tx 650 perform well with your setup?, as i hope to have a similar rig with a tx 650.

Cheers

I just placed my order for a Thermalright Silver arrow. I sure hope it fits. I've done my research and I think that it will. Please tell me your opinions.
I'll be replacing my trusty Hyper 212 Plus. It was good for my modest over clock, but couldn't handle the temps for 4.0 ghz. What's really funny is that despite reaching 92c in LinX after 5 passes it was stable and didn't crash. That's why I'm getting better cooling, I know I can do 4.0ghz easy on my old i7 920. Then I can join the 4.0 ghz club.
I couldn't pass up a Silver Arrow for less than 70 bucks. Here's the link:

Your 4.0GHz OC only needs to be stable just long enough to grab a CPU-Z Validation Link in your OCN User Name. It doesn't need to be 24/7 stable or pass any stress tests.

Good?
Not good?
My cable management is not the best. I thought this might help things. I'd put the Earthwatts one in my old rig. I'm afraid my 5 year old Thermaltake wont be up to pushing the 7600gs and 8 120mm fans. I might try overclocking....

Oh. The old rig is a Northwood 2.66.

This is the only computer I didn't build myself. Mindy gets tired of all the cursing and blood letting that comes from the assemblies & mods so when I got 18 years of back pay from the army for my disability, she said, buy a custom built computer, don't build one.

A lot of research later, I knew what I wanted & who I wanted to do it. I picked Digital Storm because of thier great reputation and many years of building whopping computers. Or is that whooping? As in butt whooping? So I went on thier forums and told them what I wanted and everything sounded good but one guy kept telling me that I really should get a bigger case, like a haf 932 or 800D (which was new then), but I''ve always had mid-towers & I really liked the look of the Scout.

I talked to my associates on hard forum (there 5 years before I came here), picked the best of the best at the time & jumped in full force even gritting my teeth cause I had to wait 2 weeks to a month before my vid card (XFX 5870) would be available, of course it was a month! When my system finally came it was all it was promised to be, water cooled goodness & speed that couldn't be beat.

There was just one problem. I saw that behind my mobo it said LE, but didn't really get it, actually didn't get it until one of our Scout members (Trademark) pointed it out. My mobo is a basic tri-sli from Evga, good ol' 132-BL-758-TR......LE. When I started running the system through it's paces, everything seemed golden, graphics, folding, doing 7.63 things at once and getting them done at 4.009Ghz! Then I started playing my games. I knew games were the best test of a computers metel that you could supply but at the time I thought the synthetic tests could have made it harder on the system.

So, a few times through playing Crysis I had problems. The green lines of ATI, the screen blanks & spontaneous re-boots. Then at the end the movie played in Psycadelic coloring! That part was cool! I thought, oh, brand new vid card, it may be the drivers or something. It didn't turn out so well though, after some more testing and trying a few things DS said, I found out that the Vreg (mosfet cooling) was going over 100c and causing things in the NB or Qpi as it's called now to go wonky, esp the communications between the vid card & processor. So with not much quibble at all DS talked to Evga (starting my getting friendly with Evga) and they soon said, send it back (sorry my expense) but they'll upgrade me to a Haf 932, 240 rad & better setup overall. A few weeks later I had my new setup & was planning to build my wife a system almost identical to mine (no LE board), in the ol Scout case.

Lesson learned?? With a high end i-7 setup in the Scout, try not to block the back vent, it's vital, anything you can do to increase the airflow over the mosfet cooler will go a long way. Some guys I've talked to over at Evga have build mi-towers with an LE board by putting in a delta 40mmx10mm fan on the mosfet fins & nothing else, me, I increased the airflow in Mindys Scout by putting a Noctua in the blowhole & a 120 Enermax Apollish in the 5.25 bay, the result is a 2ft draft out the top of the blowhole & a very cool mosfet. The only time she did let me O/C it, the temps were very reasonable.
