Update 1
Update 2
Update 3
Update 4 (the good one)
Update 5 (Assembly and leak testing)
Update 6 Finished product (Before and After)



Alright so I've actually made my decision on what I'm getting.

Note - All parts will be ordered over the next 1 or 2 weeks ( are now all in my possession! )

This is what my build current looks like (looked like)

Asus M2A-MVP Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5000+
2Gb Corsair DDR2
160Gb HDD (reeeeally old)
ATI HD4770
Some crappy case (that has surprisingly good cooling)
Razer Copperhead mouse
Microsoft Keyboard


And this is what my new rig will look like
(looks like)

(I actually need a name for this pc so fire off your suggestions! I might just offer some freebie parts if I see one I like)

[x]Asus P6X58D-P
[x]Intel i7 980x
[x]Dominator GT 6Gb
[x]Asus HD5970
[x]Corsair 800D
[x]Swiftech Apogee XT Waterblock
[x]EK-Multioption RES 150 v2
[x]Black Ice GTS 360
[x]Corsair 1000w Modular
[x]MCP655 Pump
[x]Gentle Typhoons
[x]UV Blue Masterkleer tubing
[x]1Tb Samsung Spinpoint F3
[x]Logitech G15 Keyboard
[x]Logitech MX518 Mouse
The list is complete!

Quite an upgrade eh?

Some of the stuff above may change depending on stock levels at the time of purchase, ideally I want most, if not all of the items from Scan as I won't have to pay for shipping costs.

I will post pics as and when I get the products!

A special shout out has to be made to Sunny Sahota, he has tought me to much over the last few months and I would'nt even be attempting water cooling if it wasn't for his advice

So today I picked up the first few parts (The cheap bits) I'll post the good stuff next week when I collect them.

Here is what I have so far:





And a few random pics of the sky last night and the cat, doing what she does best!

Yeah not sure why that is, I'll upload them somewhere else.

Edit - seems imsgshack was failing, I uploaded one to Tinypic and it works fine, i'll upload the others now.
