    Alsisgevat,
    You're building a killer rig. Are you using the various SSD's as ultra fast storage or as ultra fast raid? May I ask how you like your cases unusual mobo configuration with it's IO ports pointing up and it's wires running along the top and out the back?
    Thanx mate, the bottom ocz ssd is for the OS, and the top two corsair ones are for games, at first it was going to be for RAID, or storige, but then I desided on using them just for games, seeing as I usually only install about 10 games before I format, it works well. And loading games are so much better on a SSD.

    As for the chassis, I can honestly say this is one of the best features of the chassis, it makes accessing the "back" usb ports allot easier,and having the gfx's standing so vertical next to instead of over and under each other makes it feel safer when adding water cooling, and I personally think it looks cool. And the heat from the gfx's card go out the top instead of into the cpu cooler. As for the wires running on top, the top pannel hides them at least, and it makes them come out as one neat bundle type thing. But it definitely is a change,and one needs to get use to it.

    So far it seems like a killer rig, Alsisgevat!

    I don't know about prices in S.A. but can you tell me how much have you spent so far? with my latest build i've spent about US$ 1.900 (prices here are almost double the US price ) and i don't have a "supreme" top of the line build, but i like it

    EDIT: I just did a quick math and my actual rig is worth (newegg prices) about US$ 1.110, so now that i think about it... the overprice it's about 72.73%

    The prices here are crazy too, for example. One silver rotary fitting from bitspower cost 10.50 last I checked, here it costs R280.00. Ruffly if the currency was the same it meant they cost R280 dollars here. And I know we usually add a 0 after our prices then its the same. Because a 600 dollar graphics card in the US cost R6000 here. But thats not the same with importing, it seems we pay more on importing taxes then the product itself. So you can imagine how it sucks to pay so much for a single fitting.

    I checked on frozenCPU for the watercooling and chassis. On newegg for the hardware and some random store for the gfx cards, because I couldn't find it on newegg. And here are their prices.



    So the total ruffly when purchasing these items now would be around 3970.37 dollars.

    But that is without out specials. And believe me I hunted down the special here in S.A, so it should be cheaper.

    Thanx mate, but the only prices this year was the watercooling ones, and one og the gfx cards. The other stuff were last years problem.

    And if I may, I looked at you previous pics again, and seeing as you have the red lights and the hole red and black theme, I was thinking it would look pretty sweet if you repainted the yellow stuff on the fans. (those yellow things on the corners of the bottom and top fans,) Cause I like the hole setup, but the yellow stands out allot IMHO.

    And then there's the sad issue of international postage.. Did you perhaps see how much that would add to the price?

    Well it worked out around +/- 20-30% extra on SOME stuff. Others only about 5-10%...

    agreed the orange does stand out loads but its a really soft rubber. the fans are held inplace by these things https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showp...odid=FG-053-AK
    they are good quiet fans though

    Oh, it looked yellow-ish, anyway yeah I saw a bunch of reviews that liked those fans, but I personally would have sprayed them red by now.Or white in my case hehe.

    But atleast the rubber makes the fans more silent, so it helps
