Finish building it.

No camera at the moment .

PSU wires were too short so I couldn't route them through the back of the mobo so I wasn't able to set the wires exactly as I wanted.

Here's some benchmarks and some slight ocing results.

Ambient temp is 31-32C, yea my room is hot during the summer I can't wait to try some ocing in the summer.

Stock CPU speeds, had to change multiplier to 20x in BIOS, it was 15x originally. Case fans were set to 70%.



OCed CPU to 3GHz, case fans set to 100% partly into the test



Results from Vantage, OC'd my 5870 to 875/1250, max GPU tempt was 82C.



I'm guessing those 1-3 degree differences in CPU temps means I didn't apply my thermal paste properly? Or should I run the tests a few more times to let my thermal paste set? I used Shin Etsu X23.
