A new build (My First OCN Build) to be done in 6 months. Excited to see where this takes me. Beginnings are slow, but patience can pay off. Saying goodbye to AMD, thank you for saving me money in the past. My current PC will go to my family in memory of my Mom, who has been a big help in my life.

Just ordered the following. Too Happy! Decided to not get the Corsair H100 right now. Water Cooling in the future should be a custom setup. So getting the H100 seemed like a waste of money at 114.99 where as the Air Cooler isn't at $29.99. ($10 M-Rebate will make it $19.99) Probably put it on the current setup in the end.

Corsair Obsidian 800D
LITE-ON 12X Blu-ray Burner with 3D Playback
Rosewill RDCR-11003 74-in-1 USB3.0 3.5" Internal Card Reader
NZXT CB-LED20-WT Sleeved LED Kit - White, 2 m
Optical Quantum 25GB 4X BD-R 25 Packs Logo Top Blu-ray Disc
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212

you planning on water cooling?? if you plan on air cooling...its not that good of a air cooling case.... it has some hot spot build up...

should of went with the 650D ... looks as nice as the 800D but cools much better..and also have lots of room for water cooling (200mm and 240 mm rads)

also if you going with the 800D why not the H100 cooler over the CM 212. CM 212 is nice, but if you got room for the H100 why not?

that is a good idea, i might do this with a S3 as a mainboard and go black and green! Anyways good luck with yours mate! I love cool designed based on platforms!

Why don't you buy a XCPS or whatever they call it, RASA kit? They are build it yourself all in one come with all parts, and provide decent parts. Watercooling is pretty easy one you read enough, read up on some guides, and most importantly, if something doesn't make sense, go with common sense! you can't go wrong with common sense and watercooling. Like always test outside of the case, and build it so you wont have issues attaching your parts. So build it into the case, but insall your parts later, but design it so you can do that.

BTW 1 suggestion which I relly like is my Antec Kuhler 920, it has a LED which says antec on the waterblock/pump and you can set it to whatever color tone you want, so ic an set it to be green or red or blue, plus it is water cooling and it fits wherever you can fit it easily compared to full watercooling systems. However it isn't a full watercooling system in performance, but it has a lot of cooler features, and it is easy to install.

You have inspired me to get out my watercooling stuff!

hmm, if you had read what I wrote, you'd see I'm probably going to go with a custom water cooling as this is why I got the 800D. The 212 is just temporary and will probably go in my current setup in the end.

No prob. It's a 6 months build. Waiting on Ivy and Z77 and the Kepler cards when they are released or at least available. The 680's went quick and have no idea when they're available again.

Checking the window for UPS is like people clicking the refresh button to see if their 680 is available yet... eek.gifwheee.gif
