UPDATE: ADDED A SECOND LIQUID COOLED GTX 480 TO THE BUILD (and a red neon lighting system )
PLEASE Post any requests for game/software benchmarks and whatever else you can think of, especially if your'e considering buying the same hardware. This log should be informative/useful to people following it.


The Black Mamba should be here by the end of July (I'll be back in town by early August). Regardless of whether I'm home or not I'll continue to be on this thread, because I am a newcomer to gaming rigs and want advice on how to take advantage of my new system that I plan on getting a 3d setup for, (who knows maybe 3d surround in the future). And yes this is my first liquid cooled PC.

This is a a prebuilt system, that I want to overclock to the max, it cost me $1,868.10 (+560 for the second liquid cooled card I ordered and +10 for the red neon light) including shipping because of their 4th of July sale, thats why i bought it from CyberPower. I plan on replacing the monitor with a 24"-30" 1080p 3d ready monitor and adding the Nvidia 3D Glasses kit to my build of course.

Right now I was wondering if people could clue me in on: the cheapest place to get a 24"-30" 1080p 3d ready monitor (possibly bundled with 3d glasses kit). Bought the acer B273HUbmidhz 27" with 2048x1152 resolution. The 27" I ordered had not been updated on the website, it was out of stock, instead I bought the Asus VG236H 23" with 1920x1080 resolution, bundled with the 3d vision kit for the same price. And what kind of overclock results I should expect on the I7 930 with this cooling system.[/I]

Can I just mention that I've had two of those MSI mobo's and they both had this awful purple used chewing gum that MSI claims is thermal paste that needs to be changed. I don't know if the guy's at Cyberpower pay that close attention to their build's, but if I was you the first thing I would do is pop off the heatsinks, clean that mess out and put some MX3 in there. Both times I did it dropped about 40c off the NB load temps.

ooooooooh man that doesn't sound good. hopefully they check that because they do 72 hour quality control checks. and if they got a 360mm liquid cooled system thats 70 C under load i bet they'll re-apply the paste. but if not i guess i'll be fixing that.

Does that include waterblocks for the mobo? Worst case scenario you just have to pop out mobo and change TIM. It only takes about half an hour.

Okay, sorry, but dude, why are you posting this pre-built system in the Intel Build Log section? This is not a build log, this is a pre-built system. I think every one on OCN see's a pre-built as a waste of money, as you can build one to those specs for a lot cheaper. I'm not tryin to say you made a bad purchase (because you did get a nice price on that sale ), but this is computer forum where people build computers.
