Wow that looks so clean inside. I hope your Cable Management is up to the job!

What colour is it btw? is it actually grey or is it pure white?

Hehehehhehe. For sure this will be a spot i am going to dedicatemany long hours to. I think cable management is essential for any build. Besides getting the weird cables from all over the place, it makes it be neat, tidy as well as providing a better airflow within the case.

I actually though on going on red sleeving to match the mobo colour, but i think i am going to cable it all bacl, no red! For me cable management is essential but if it starts to become red, green, for example, it starts to take the attention from the main part, and this i DO NOT WANT.

Besides, cables are meant to be hidden and out of the way, and not to take away the attention from the main stage. Can you imagine going to the cinema, or theather and the chairs are nice brown sweeat leather, a velevet carpet, blinking leds underneath your chair.....in the end you would pay attention to the main show.

Sleeving will be done too, and but nothing to fussy and full of colours.

TBH i would just suggest going x58 and get the i7 920. Then take a look at the bloodrage, this would suite your colour scheme amazingly! In terms of ram, look at G.Skill for that price range. Graphics, either wait until GT300 is released (if ever!) or i would suggest getting a 5970 (5870x2) when they are released in a month or so.

Nice job with the powdercoating! Unlucky about the rad, i hope airflow isn't affected too much

Going x58 is not an option for me.
Going ATI is also not an option. I benefit a lot from the CUDA rendering job.

I hope the rad is still okey too, i tested in with 2 laing D5 just to see the welding was still holding everything up, and it worked fine, and from the looks here i think the airflow will be reasonably ok!

Right,

now I am struggling choosing the hardware bois:

Firstly, this article really got my attention and i am indeed concerning on buying the Asus Maximus III Formula.

I had a chat with Lee from Scan UK and i asked him if he could test the board before shipping it to me, regarding that i am living in brazil now, and it would be an incredible PITA in case i had a faulty board and had to RMA it, likewise with the Striker II Extreme which i had to RMA 3 TIMES , yes that right!

Lee said that i would not be possible:

"Unfortunately we're not in a position to test hardware prior to shipping at this time of year. All of the goods are fresh stock and shouldn't prove troublesome. I completely appreciate that you're in a unique situation, however we do not have the facility to test goods prior to shipping."

Therefore i asked Lee if at least they could check the stock batch version, and that´s the reply:

"This is totally going to seem like we're being unhelpful, but your requests just cannot be met I'm afraid. Reason being is that we have mixed stock on the shelf from various suppliers, from varying batches. I have no way of guaranteeing a specific revision. These types of issues normally arise with new technology and it's only due to your situation that this would cause a problem, otherwise if the board were to fail you know that we would replace this for you. The last time we ordered any of these was the 16th Nov - these were delivered the following day but as I previously mentioned, I have mixed stock on the shelf and no way to guarantee what revision you would receive. Not all of our stock is kept nearby, often we'll dispatch from differing warehouses. This means that even if I did check a motherboard - the guys who pick and dispatch the orders are likely to choose an entirely different board."

Now what do i do?

Is it still safe to buy it, not knowing if the boards in stock comes from a newer batch?

Should i buy from somewhere else from someone who has a smaller shop and would be able to give a superior support?

What do you guys think?



...continuing:

Intel Core i7 860 2.8GHz
Seems a good choice in case i go with the asus

now i am really struggling to choose memory kit, because i am not really sure what will i benefit the most REMEMBERING that my focus ain´t gaming at all.

My focus is to have a good motherboard that will enable me to setup a good workstation as well as be able to fold as much as possible when idle.

What would benefit me most? XMP or DHX ???

What other memory should i really consider?

OCZ?

Any other suggestions???


Guys, please help me out brake up this nut! I am stuck :facepalm:

Just little update on hardware choice:

I gaveup on the Asus Maximus III Formula, been reading some reviews on it that really puts it down, and i want to achieve a good oc on this build so bye bye asus.

I am looking out for EVGA classified boards only. It would be better if i manage to grab second hand ones cause it will help my pocket a lot.

Mainly, i am focused on the P55 Classified, however i am still studying the x58 classified boards which i am not sure yet, it will all be decided upon prices.

These are the products wanted very alive, not dead.

Code:
Priority nº01-
EVGA P55 Classified 200/ PART NUMBER:160-LF-E659-KR



Code:
Priority nº02-
EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI/Part Number:170-BL-E762-A1



Code:
Priority nº03-
EVGA X58 SLI Classified/PART NUMBER:141-BL-E760-A1


Cheers all!
