I have Everest but never used the Stability test. I'll have to give it a try sometime.

Yeah...it is. Wonder why mine's so low?

I changed the rear fan to exhaust and turned the heatsink around so it blows the hot air out. Temps are down but still not where they were. Maybe I have to live with them as is.

@A Guy..thanks, I love the controller

ShArKy that's horrible. Not that awesome monster PC, but losing your home and everything. That PC is quite a piece of work!

shArKy,
Man I'm sorry to hear about the fire I hope you get your life back to normal quickly. That aside the rig is amazing were you running filters on all the fans and radiators? If so were did you source those and were they easy to clean?
Again bummer drag on the fire !

hey everyone..thanks for your kind words..i can't offhand recall where i got all the filters and grills, so i gotta do some research about that..while i'm staying at my temp place i'll rebuild the system using the lian-li pc-v2120x until i have more room to build it exactly like it was before..i think i'm also gonna get a mushkin power supply too..i didn't like the sr-2 PSU much because they put these like cylinder things near the end of each power lead to hold the sleeving tightly which made them very stiff, so i hadda mount the PSU near the top of the case using a hole i had modded, which meant you could see lots of power supply leads in front of the board..i would have rather had the PSU behind the board with only the necessary wires showing, to make it more visible..i think the mushkin will give me the chance to make the next build a little cleaner...but we'll see.

When you rebuild it, try and put a projector in the case. That would be epic!

I just OC'd mine and still only managed to get a 5.6/6.6. Maybe because my pci-e slot is only running @ x8?

Can you post a GPU-Z snip? I wanna see your settings.

Ok, I'll post a few picks of my rig and surrounding area.

24" LCD display, ( I love it! ) and surrounding paraphernalia .
Altec Lansing speaker system, Not bad could be better and Color photo printer, Steelseries headset.
This is where I rest my feet.. The blue fan looks cool, Brother MFC-8460n lazer all in one printer.
Other view.....
Cooler Master Centurion 590 with the little Zalman fan controller and a USB 3.0 hub.
Case front view.
And of course my Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant Gt-I9000M.
A little external storage.....
The very large and very cool looking Zalman CPU cooler.
3x2gig DDR3 PC16000 memory sticks @ 1866mhz.
Cool looking Nvidia GeForce GTS450 Zotac with a little cable management. and of course the MB.

Last but not least the place where we make the cash to pay for all this good stuff.. I'm a draftsperson by trade.
