    Solarstarshines,
    Nice choices and take some pic's along the build and when finished. This should work out to be a very capable OC set up and if I had it over to do I would mount the radiator in a push/pull with filtered cool air coming into the radiator from the top and then exhausting out the back of the case. I set my H100 in push pull drawing case air and exhausting but I think the other way is better.

    Oh yeah when I get time plenty of shots and you will also see my crossfire set up

    Now as far as Overclocking goes was reading that useing the FSB would be better for the OC then useing the Multiplyer

    There are many ways to do this but im going to look into the most stable way
    Since water cooling is relevant in my machine now i would like to reach somewhere around the 4.6 to 5 ghz range ,I won't know till i throw them in though

    You might see a few personal messages from me floating around in a few days with my concerns
    Hopefully won't be overwhelming

    Also I will probally be moving this thread to Overclocking and case mods

    Let the thermal paste cure and take time to familiarize your self with it's baseline stock performance fully then start slowly overclocking later. Even if we're talking like weeks !

    My computer started out as a Dell XPS 8100 and slowly I changed it into my own computer. Only the processor and CPU are factory. Everything else has been upgraded.

    The current specs are:
    Windows 7/Windows 8 Consumer Preview
    Intel i7 2.8 GHz (First generation)
    16 GB Dual Channel 660MHz
    Radeon HD 6950 2 GB (Sapphire)
    1 TB Boot drive
    2 TB 2nd Drive
    Dell Motherboard
    700W OCZ PSU

    I added a USB 3.0 Hub, I have a USB 3.0 PCIe card in the back and a wire running from it to a hub in the front.

    The case is a CM Storm Enforcer with two fans added to the top.

    Logitech Z623 Speakers
    Logitech M705 Mouse
    Logitech G110 Keyboard
    HP 2511x 25" LED Monitor (Middle)
    HP 2211x 21.5" LED Monitor (Sides)

    Here is the computer, I need to do a better job of hiding wires...

    Nice rig! Very interesting you run it all off a Dell MB. Might I ask why? With it's crippled BIOS, it is usually not a choice. I did not even know you could make all the changes you have with it. A Guy

    Well, I have never changed a motherboard so I guess I am a little hesitant to try in case I will screw something up... but it's probably not that hard, probably just looks harder than it really is. Everything else was a matter of unplugging something and plugging something new in. I already have a motherboard picked out, do I just pop out the CPU and pop it in the new one? And last noob question, is this motherboard compatible with the first gen of i7 as well as Sandy Bridge? I will probably upgrade to Sandy Bridge later this year.
