Nice to see some activity back in the thread
it went dead for a while there.
Had my birthday recently and I have some nice things lined up. I got myself a Samsung 830 120gb SSD for my boot drive which has blazing performance - dropped by boot time from 3-4 minutes before it was smoothly running to around 30 seconds.
On top of that I finally got my replacement H100 from Corsair, now dead silent as opposed to the annoying buzz it made before. There was one issue though...one of the holes in the back plate had no thread D:. I had just destroyed the stock intel cooler, I had been using, trying to get it off, and now I find that one of the screws wont screw in..disaster. Spoke to my dad though and lucky me, he had a tap the perfect size to fix the issue. Slight screw up on Corsair's behalf but all is well now, got my 3770k OC'd at around 4.4 running smooth about 28C idle, ~55C load.
Few more touch ups I'm interested in making before I finish up the rig for now. I'm looking at getting some LED strips to light it all up too, but literally no one in Auckland has the kinds I want in stock, and none of them can give me an ETA either
. I also want to get a nice matte black plate over the 5.25" bays to tidy things up, and I'll mount the SSD on there. The great thing about the Samsung 830 is it looks nice and sleek with its brushed black aluminium
No pics for now, its a mess, back panel won't fit on and there's stuff hanging out the front, but once I tidy things up I'll get some uploaded.
There is this though:
Very happy with it, although I want to see if I cant squeeze a score of 7.9 out of this rig yet :P
