Here's a low light pic to keep you going, it's a bit of a mishmash of colors right now. I may have to change the color of the case lighting to make it all blend in a bit better.
Very, very nice Paul, but I can see, I think, 6 cables.
Did I say it's very nice?
Yes you did say it is very nice and I agree, very nice indeed. Good Job.

An Asus DVD burner and the Gigabyte HD7770 1 Gb ram card and running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. She uses it as a workstation and also to play casual games on such as the two favorites ATM Luxor 2 and Bejeweled 3. If she ain't happy you will be unhappy with half your stuff so build her a decent rig.
Looks great Tony, nice job mate

Only hardware, I'm still happy with my case etc. Thank you.
It depends on which way you want to go. Ivy E is the last one out But, the improvements over what you already have is not that great form what I've heard. They are still socket 2011.

On the other side is Haswell and the i7-4770K From what I see, there are some nice improvements in the Chipsets, but the CPU's don't overclock quite as well and the heat is a very limiting factor.

For Graphics and you said Nvidia, the 780s have really come down in price because of the new AMD releases. They released the 780 TI since the AMD release. The 780TI are still pretty new but seem to out perform everything else, but the price is quite high. Not as bad as The Titan, but still close to it.

With your rig, I don't see anything out worth upgrading for really unless you wanted to upgrade your GPU to a 780 or 780 TI. I think that would show a lot of improvement over your 580s. But Nvidia was supposed to release the 800 series the 1st quarter this year. We'll have to wait to see what they are about.

If you have any specific questions, ask away.

Ah okay, thank you very much, that helped allot, geuss I will rather wait for a new series. And gpu wise I was looking at Evga's hydrocopper 780's in sli.

Thanks Ryan, I think it was all done and dusted within a couple of hours, the longest bit was the Windows updates.

Temps seem pretty much the same as my 3770K and here is the WEI with everything at stock settings.

You don't hang about do ya mate
Nice looking WEI score mate
Does Ivy-E drop down to silly low voltages too? I was just watching CpuZ last night to see what voltage the cpu is using when that noise from the psu starts but it's just when the cpu is below 0.7v, I've seen it drop to as low as 0.03v

It's pretty cold in the cabin this morning Drew so the temps are very low. Last night with the heating on full the temps settled at around 29C average for each core at idle. The hottest it has gone so far was 55C after running 3D Mark.
