Ps. i7 now sits at a 4.6ghz OC. Heat never exceeds 61 on full load. Idles around 24. My fans are system managed, not via nzxt grid.


You won't be disappointed with the SP120s, they're brilliant little fans hey.. Running a mix of SP and AF in my case and they work beautifully.

Killer rig right there, absolutely gorgeous! I wish both of you a long, happy and fruitful life together... Hehe.. Those Kingstons must be amazing in RAID.

So far they work great. It was cool to see such a noticeable difference. May switch my thermaltakes out for more Corsair someday... Someday. Lol.

Thanks! My disappointment over that rig and so called expert computer repair shops were the reason why I decided that I needed to learn how to build, maintain, and repair my own computers. Seven Forums had a lot to do with my being able to do that.

It seems unless you give them the parts yourself Computer shops tend to BS on your Machine and put all budget crap in there that barley runs and horrible performance on top of that

One guy i used to frequent in early 2000 did this to me and i would point out to him that is now what i asked for so in turn i got fed up and just put the damn things together myself much easier and i know what i want to put into it half these mom and pop shops bank on the fact you have no idea of what you are purchasing which is the reason why they are getting shut down

Bit late to the party here, but with the Intel vs AMD story (which I doubt will never die).. I don't see it as a simple case of one being better than the other, it's more of a "right tool for the job" idea.

If you want a decent gaming machine, go Intel and you won't be disappointed. If you need a good solid workstation, AMD will let you do that more than comfortably. And at a much more reasonable price too..

That said, my previous build (Phenom II x4 975BE, dual 660Ti's, 8GB Patriot G2, etc) still runs all the modern games with great ease. So, within your budget, get the right tool for the job and you'll have a machine to be proud of.

...and just to point out, the Asus Sabertooth 990FX/Gen3 R2.0 includes PCI-E 3.0. I'm pretty sure others will start to follow suit soon. Still, I somehow doubt the majority of computers would saturate the 2.0 rates yet anyway. When they do, 3.0 will be much more common.

Very nice build Turkey, proper tidy job too :thumbsups:

Very nice build CrazyMike, very clean/tidy

Hows'that Thermaltake cooler? I've got to build a rig for a mate and was thinking of using that cooler..
Thanks for all the compliments guys! There are some really nice systems on this thread!

The Thermaltake cooler does it's job, but can get a little noisy when the fan speed picks up. My computer sits in the room with all the afternoon sun; inside air temp is about 78F (25.5c) right now and the cpu is at 34c as I type this. I'm sure once I stop being cheap and turn the AC on it will help cut that noise down.

Well I have that board and it is fantastic....


IDK. Intel and AMD war is just like the anti-virus war.

And intel is never a few pennies more than an AMD product. They are almost always twice the amount.
