3 Day Order! build/rant

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I mistakingly posted this in the Intel thread at first. I caught it and moved it here.

I don't think that I have ever been so disgusted with my bank. I just started using this bank about 6 months ago and i'm now not happy at all.

I placed a big order with Newegg and FrozenCPU, and my order with Newegg was declined! apparently I have a spending limit on my account.So my Frozen CPU
order has went through and now I will place half of my Newegg order this morning while placing the second half of my Newegg order tomorrow.

I don't place money in my damn bank for them to control my spending habits. I understand that financial institutions want to protect against fraud, but
bloody hell let me get my money when I want or need it without hassle. I almost went postal on the girl at the teller desk. Sorry, I had to get
that off my chest.

Now Excitement!!! I can barely hold it in and all my friends and family look at me without a clue of what i'm talking about.

I will be Making a PC Build log for my New i7 2600K

It will be another Obsidian 800D Dual Loop. I know you guys have seen a bloody million of them, but it will be my biggest personal build ever along with the most case modding that I have ever done.
It will also be my first non-ghetto WCooled PC.

800D Hardware.
2x EVGA GTX 580 (01G-P3-1580-AR), Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7, 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 2200, WD VelociRaptor 600GB 6.0GB, 800D and 1K PSU from Corsair. i7 2600k

Order number 1 (FrozenCPU)Placed yesterday

2 x Koolance VID-NX580 (GTX 580)
XSPC Dual 5.25/Dual Pump/Dual Loop

XSPC RX240

Anyway, I hope to Chill with you guys over the course of my build and get advice as I go. I will start posting pictures etc. as the stuff starts rolling in. I will also start another thread with the build name in the title.

When I make that other thread, should I reserve a couple of extra spots at the beginning of the post. I see a lot of people doing that just thought I would check.

Sounds like a killer build, but I can understand why the bank was suspicious. Those were obviously not cheap orders and if you normally are only using your card to buy groceries, lunch, small things, etc., and out of nowhere you have two huge charges that aren't common from you then they'll think something is up. Of course that kinda sucks they put a limit, for me they'll just call and confirm it was you.

Looking forward though to see this build, should be killer. God I need to ditch my H50 for a loop.

Yeah, I guess I should be thankful they are just looking out for our joint interest.

I also think I found a problem with my build. I don't think my Cpu block is going to work on the 1155 socket. My cooling equipment will be here tomorrow.

Looks like a great build!

As for your bank, to be honest, it was totally normal. Especially so if the account is only 6 months old.
They were protecting your account against fraud, something my bank didn't bother doing when some scrote managed to somehow take over £1000 out of my account!
