Tube positioning. Path, I am on the same OCD boat with you. If you notice my pump, the "Corsair" logo is upside-down, but it is perfectly upside-down. Reason is my tubing felt like it was getting too much tension if the logo was right-side-up. So instead I flipped the pump upside-down, and the tubes seemed to naturally move that way.
Yep, that's why I take so long to do my systems, they always come out better and I'm not sitting here going, wish I had 30 minutes to do......

Upside down, like I was trying to do yesterday without my computer. You mean like this:
Attachment 148990 ???
Yeah, the engineers put them at that length and tension so it fits perfectly in a Corsair 800D case with an X58 mobo.

The Nevada way, if you can't do it right side up, do it upside down. That was actually posted at "The Old Bridge Ranch" brothel.

To keep the progress up to date, I am happy to say I have finalized the purchases. I feel very confident with the choices I have made, and it is all thanks to the Scouts.


GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Although I know, K-10, and maybe others were more towards the side of the 790FX, I felt, in the end, the 890GX was the better option for me. I would like to note that although I chose the 890GX, I could not have made the decision without the information about the 790FX.

Thank you K-10!


AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
Although the 955 CPU has more users than the 965, I have chosen to the 965. (Please note, I have purchased the 965 125W, where I have been advised is "C3") I wanted to get an OEM processor, but since it is not available on Newegg, I pony'd up the money and got the retail.


Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model 996832
Taking Rockr's words into consideration & my budgeting, the RAM was budgeted. Although, I think I have made a wise decision in the brand, timing, and overall "bang for buck" based on the fact that I needed to buy everything at once. Hopefully you guys feel the same way.

The order has been processed.

I got free 3 day UPS shipping on everything & a 3% Bing Cash Back (about $13.00).
  • $443.97 - Combined sub-total of all 3 components
  • $000.00 - Free shipping
  • $000.00 - Tax free
  • $013.00 - Cash back
  • $430.97 - Total spent
Now the worst part... Waiting.
I sided with the 890GX. I was under the impression you weren't buying soon so I was suggesting the 890FX since I kinda thought you were going wait a while anyway.

Also right you are, it's American English, just don't tell that to an english (British, get off my back) person.
Kauai has many white sand beaches while the Big Island doesn't have that many. As you may know, Kauai is the oldest island in the Hawaiian island chain and therefore it has the most eroded and refined sand. Also, there are no active volcanoes on Kauai. As for the Big Island, it still has volcanic activity and as the magma flows into the ocean, it creates lava(duh) and instead of the the coral being the primary source for the island's sand, it's the eroded lava which is the reason for black sand at MOST of the beaches on the Big Island. There are nice beaches here but I am quite an adept swimmer so the fact of deep, rough, rocky water doesn't bother me too much. I've snorkeled here and Kauai and I like it more on Kauai. The beaches on Kauai are more friendly meaning they're a lot more calm.

I rearranged my asetek lclc so the lines have less stress. Just feel the lines with your hands, slightly bend them to see.

Have you every thought about adding your graphic card to that water cool loop?
That would make your gaming much more quiet I'm sure.
Thanks so much!! Actually it's posted here now but I have yet to post it on the Haf owners club thread. They're such snobs over there.

No, the graphics card isn't loud at all, the loudest thing in this case is the OCZ ram fan which runs at a blistering 4800+ rpm at full power. When I get a GF 480 I may consider the water jacket. I am going to order at least 8ft of extra tubing when I order my new res and stuff.

Night gang I've got to play for that is what I got this rig for.

Ah, okay. I thought by "FX" you were, at first, referring to the 790FX. Gotcha!

World at War huh? I might just take you up on that offer. Is that on Steam?

Do you happen to have XBOX Live? I have COD MW2 on the console.





The tubes are what they are. I'm sure the engineers had their reasons. Who am I to judge? I say the best thing to do is (for a fellow OCD'er) find the best positioning with the pump with the Corsair logo exactly upside-down, or exactly side ways (2 ways). Good luck!
Not on Steam. I don't play Xbox. Too lazy to relearn the controls after PC gaming for years, but my kids play the hell out of it. They make me look like a baby.
