Looks like I missed a lot since I last dropped by 3 weeks ago.
It's been kind of hectic down here and I haven't had the time to check in as often as I'd like to.
Will try to do it regularly.
I browsed trough all the new pics and I saw some great rigs!

Will post some of my recent efforts in a few days.

Cheers,

J
Hiya Juan, long time no speak! Hope your keeping well and I look forward to seeing your recent efforts. If previous ones are anything to go by then they will be awesome.

Ell Juan, I hope alls well mate n will look forward to your new pics

As good as black n gold usually look together i really disslike the new Asus boards and think it's a really bad idea.
Take note of the Asus dev's comments in this thread ASUS Z87 Motherboards Unveiled

I like the black and gold but after the small fortune I spent on my new rig, it will be a long time before I upgrade. Besides, I need the extra PCI-e lanes I get from my X79 board (I'm already using 25 and I haven't put in any TV tuner and/or USB 3.0 cards yet).

Now I am in late on this one but yep Gary that is the go and for edging it I have used car paint wet and dry paper followed by cutting compounds of finer particulate and finish with a product called Silvo (it's for polishing silver) - takes a bit of work and patience but the finish is VERY close to factory. - I use it for all my scratched and marked CD's and DVD's.

Fot the beveled edges it just needs a jig to hold the panel

I suspect the X79 will show to be better running than the Z87 setups.
You are using 25 what?

25 PCI-e lanes. Sixteen lanes for the GPU card, eight lanes for the HBA card (gives me eight more SATA III ports), and one lane for the internal card reader (with three USB 3.0 ports) added to the front panel. Most TV tuners I've considered use one lane each (I'll be adding one or two later) and a card to add more USB 3.0 ports (if I even ever need one) to the rear of the computer (my board has only two USB 3.0 ports on the back) can use up to four lanes (depending on the number of ports it adds).

Z77 boards have only up to 24 PCI-e lanes available (some of those lanes may be used to provide other functions); X79 boards have up to 48 available (my board uses eight of them so only 40 is actually available). Some Z77 boards use extra chipsets to make more PCI-e lanes available but they aren't as reliable as reliable as the ones from the CPU. I'm using a Sandy Bridge-E CPU (i7-3930k) which limits my PCI-e to only 2.0 speeds but the board is PCI-e 3.0 ready, though I doubt I'll ever need those speeds since most GPUs haven't saturated 2.0 yet and I'll never use my rig for gaming (the old XP Pinball game is intense enough for me).

I have yet to see how many PCI-E lanes Haswell will support and was one reason I decided not to wait for it. Another reason I'm glad I didn't wait is the heat spreader on the Haswell CPUs are going to use TIM like the Ivy Bridge CPUs do instead of soldering the chip to the heat spreader like the Sandy Bridge and earlier CPUs did. A lot of people have been having trouble with the Ivy Bridge CPUs overheating due to poor heat transfer through the TIM from the chip to the heat spreader and have been having to delid the chips to replace the TIM.
