Corsair 800D, i7, Crossfire, X58, Swiftech loop.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I thought I'd get back into gaming and system building. So here is my little build, all the parts are new (sept' the fan controller) as the system I use right now is my gf's and its no gaming rig. I plan for lots of water cooling.

Heres phase one: Case, PSU, MOBO, 3 extra fans, and a fan controller I had left over from my 2003 build.

Corsair 800D



eVGA Classified

Corsair 1000w PSU



The cable management on the 800D is unreal

That looks very nice. I am a big fan of that case, I just hope they make one in a mid tower size.

Ya its huge, but I wanted lots of space for the water cooling tubing.

About the video card, I have no idea. I wanted a 5870 and then later when the 5900's come out and the 5870 price drops I was going to buy another, but now I just want to wait for a 5900. Sort of depends on how long a have to wait.

Ya its got lots of room, I just sort of like the industrial look of things bolted outside. I was going to have just the rad on top and the pump down in the bottom of the case but the pump doesnt fit downt there.
