My first build that I made about 7 months ago, specs are.
I know the cable management could be a lot better but I tried
Case - thermaltake level 10 gt
Motherboard - Asus maximus extreme-z
CPU - intel i7-2600k
Ram - corsair vengeance 8gb 1866
CPU cooler - antec h20 920
GPU - asus gtx 590
PSU - xfx black edition 1250w
Peripherals are razer naga, logitech g19, logitech z623 speakers, and a samsung s27a750d 120hz 3d monitor.
Yay another Corsair H80 user! What kind of fans are you using on it Nezgral? I am thinking about swapping my Fractal fans on it for a pair of Bitfenix fans, particularly these ones: http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=66101&v...cture=BitFenix
The problem being that I have the Corsair fans in my case now and they squeak a lot, so I want to put the stock Fractal case fans back on the case and put some fans with better air flow on the the cooler. No idea what kind of fans to use, however I figure those fans have a whopping 56.22 CFM and aren't horribly loud at 18db.
For case-fans, I like both the above mentioned, but also the Air Penetrators from Silverstone. They make poor radiator-fans.
Speaking of radiators, shrouding the fans on any 120mm-radiator will be increasing the static air flow and pressure, in lieu of increasing the impact area of the fins.
CPU: i5 2500k 4.5ghz
GPU: Gigabyte OC Edition GTX 560 SLI
RAM: Kingston DDR3 8GB 1600MHz
Mobo: Asus P8P67 Pro
PSU: Cooler Master Silent ProM 1000W
Case: Antec Dark Fleet DF30

Yeh it was 10 posts :P Thank you
A quick scan through Newegg and NCIX shows no fans from Thermalright branded as X-Silent, they have the Stealth Silent fans on NCIX but it's 10db louder then the BitFenix fans and the only difference is 6 CFM in air flow between the two. Newegg Canada doesn't carry the brand.
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=51...e=Thermalright Looks like they've been de-activated for some reason, yea.
There's always Amazon, though.
Holy eff Newegg's regular shipping is fast. My SSD shipped out from New Jersey yesterday morning and it's already in transit to the Purolator depot where I live, that came fast over the border for once. Can't wait to get my new board next and really get the speeds cranked up.
Here's my current setup:
CPU: Intel Core i7 2700K @ 4.4Ghz
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB @ 1600Mhz
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68X-UD5-B3
GPU: 2x GTX 570 SLI
Display: 3x BenQ XL2420T @ 120hz
SSD: Kingston HyperX 256GB SATA3
HDD:2x Western Digital Black Edition 1TB (RAID Stripe), 1x Western Digital Black Edition 1TB
Sound: SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI-E
PSU: Corsair AX1200
Few other bits, 1xBlue Ray/RW drive, 1xDVD/RW drive. Razer Lycosa. Cyborg RAT7.
On topic... I did a couple of upgrades to my ISA server the other day.
The power supply was aging pretty bad, it was an old 350W Antec out of a case I bought 7 years ago, and the machine has been on pretty well 24/7 since I setup the server in summer 2009. The fans bearings were starting to die, and it was getting a bit of an annoying whir. 430W on this new Earthwatts unit is well over what the system needs, but at $30 it was the cheapest high quality option.
The cooler I was using was an old Freezer7 which didn't blow on the board, and I found the chipsets were getting rather hot, so I switched to a Scythe cooler since they were on sale.
And lastly, I replaced the 500GB Seagate drive in it with my old Vertex2.
So, complete stats:
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 w/ Scythe Shruiken RevB
4GiB Patriot DDR2-800
2x Intel Pro 1000 CT PCIe NiCs
OCZ Vertex2 60GB
Antec Earthwatts 430W
Old Acer Aspire mATX chassis
Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 w/ Internet Security & Acceleration Server 2006
I'm thinking of swapping the Acer case with a cheapo HTPC case at some point. Also, you may laugh at the masking tape. Cable management isn't exactly simple in an Acer case. I had to improvise.

Razer Naga Molten Edition
Core I5 @ 4.2GHz
Scythe Mugen 2 Rev B cooler
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 1600
Gigabyte UD4 P67 Mobo
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 OC
Intel X-25M 160GB SSD
WD 320GB storage drive
Corsair TX series 80+ 750W PSU
Azza Hurrican 2000R Case
Very happy with my current setup. I originally had a Biostar MB for this setup, but when they did the chipset fix revision they took out SLI, so I went with Gigabyte instead.
