post #1882 of 2409
Hi everyone ,my new nzxt vulcan gaming system is now finally ready after a long wait. I really like this case very much because i have always prefer matx case and i think that this case is a good example of price/performance ratio.Anyway my system configuration is as follows:-thumb.gif

asus M4A88T-M mATX am3 board
amd phenom II X4 960T quad core cpu (unlocked to 6 cores)thumb.gif
Gskill 1333MHz 4gb ddr3 RAM
msi geforce gtx 560 1gb DDR5 GPU
corsair CX600 smps
WD caviar green 1TB HDD
NZXT Vulcan case
cooler master vortex plus cpu cooler
cooler master 120mm and 80mm blue led case fans


all the parts that i have used in my gaming rig represents a very great value for money .the price performance ratio of my system is very good .any future upgrade suggestion is welcome .

So until I figure out something i am just thinking of running an h100 to the front spot in push/pull.
It sucks all that custom work is pretty much gone to waste, and lots of money spent. But maybe someday I will figure out some other configuration.
I have one last hope that I can put the reservoir on the back panel and somehow make the bends work.
I am using Masterkleer tubing and it kinks so easily.
If you guys have any suggestions please share! I am desperate!mad.gif

Could always try and sell the 670 FTW on OCN, and then use that money to buy a 670SC or even a previous gen card if you're willing

It's a good all around build, but if you want increased performance consider adding a solid state drive as your primary/boot/important programs drive, and use your existing HDD as a secondary drive for storage

I also think so that a SSD would increase my overall system performance ,so in a couple of days i am going to buy a new SSD and 4gb RAM more for my system.how about corsair force series 3 60gb SSD.thumb.gif

Well no more custom loop...and I am sorry for the crappy picture and the wiring job. I just wanted to get it up running and overclock smile.gif
I would do push/pull but dont have enough fans frown.gif
