    Indeed fancy stuff Deltrus. Fun also getting to build systems for others, a lot cheaper then building another machine for oneself just to satisfy the need for building stuff ;O

    I build for a friend but he can rarely pay for components, so he gets my old stuff. Hoping that I soon will be allowed to build a video encoding machine and a HTPC where I work, for the company's money, of course ;O.

    Thanks much, Rennadrel and Wries! And I totally agree Wries! As much as I DESPISED working in the Storm Enforcer, it was still so great to have another rig to build!

    And for those of you not paying attention to the keyboard thread I made (perhaps you just have no clue what to say), here's a treat from it.

    So I've been out of town for the last 5 days, and last night I came home to this waiting for me


    I didn't bother taking pictures of what's in the box... pretty much just the graphics card and a driver disc


    The new 680 on the left, the "old" 6950 (I've only been using one of them for a few months now)


    I know my cable management looks kinda messy, but it doesn't mess with the airflow


    Heaven 2.5 benchmark results vs crossfire 6950's (again, for the past few months I've only been using a single card because I got tired of the drawbacks to multi-GPU gaming, but I didn't think to run the benchmark again with the single card) ... even though the score is "technically" lower, I'd say the 680 wins based on the minimum FPS

    Oh and I tested BF3 in Operation Metro with the settings on the "Ultra" preset, and it ran at 55-60 FPS (I <3 adaptive V-sync, I don't notice the framerate drops nearly as much anymore)

    The system specs to clarify:

    Case = Fractal Design Define XL
    Mobo = ASUS P8P67 Pro
    CPU = Intel Core i5 2500k @ 4.6GHz
    Cooler = Noctua NH-D14 w/Gentle Typhoon AP14's
    RAM = G.Skill Ripjaws X series 2x4GB 1600MHz DDR3 1.35V
    GPU = Gigabyte GTX 680
    SSD's = 64GB Crucial M4 (boot) + 180GB Mushkin Chronos (games)
    HDD's = 2x 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 in software RAID0 (Fraps recording) + 1TB WD Caviar Black (storage)
    Sound Card = ASUS Xonar DX
    Monitor = ASUS VH236H 23"
    Speakers = Creative GigaWorks T20 Series II
    "Headset" = Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 w/Zalman Clip on mic
    Keyboard = Corsair K60
    Mouse = Logitech G500
    Mousepad = Razer Vespula

    Time to get Heaven 3.0 son.

    Love your rig as always. What do you plan to do with your 6950?

    Also what is the second SSD? A 180GB something eh?

    If I used Heaven 3.0 it wouldn't compare to the 2.5 results I had for the 6950's I plan on selling the 6950 and yes, the second SSD is a 180GB Mushkin Chronos I bought to put games on.

    Temporary table n stuff since I recently moved and need new furniture.

    Now with two LG IPS236V monitors. Already had one but it seems they're being discontinued and I wanted to have two of the same monitor, so bought the second one sooner than I planned.

    Nice work! Are those m-ATX dimensions? It looks really cute.

    Although I suppose one of the disadvantages of a fully transparent case is that you can't hide the cable spaghetti anywhere...and...well, it looks like a bit of a mess inside :S

    But who am I to talk! It's still something I could probably never pull off.

    yes it was atx if I recall correctly

    and all this was just when case modding came out in australia and glo in the dark cable sleeving and neon lights and fans just came out. Before the case mods there were very beige(plain) towers

    and yes you could see the wires everywhere so i just lit them up

    That looks very clean and very slick, I'd love to sit there and see how it feels/looks. Nice job sir Wries.

    I plan to upload some proper pic's of my PC/desk etc when I get my peripheral's (corsair k90, Korsair m90/60 and a decent monitor, thinking 120hz for the 680) and also when I get my camera back from my cousin who is oversea's.

    Got started on my Ivy build this week and thought I may as well bump the thread with some pics ^^

    Decided to go with a general white themed build, and I'm fairly happy with how the painted mesh turned out =]


    Put in the NZXT Hale90 too, to get a feel for it, and must say I like it ^^


    White Vengeance RAM looks as good as I could have hoped really, nice clean white with a nice 'blocky' shaped to it I guess you could call it.


    And finally the H100, with the F12's I decided to stick on it. Planning on p/p but will have to see how big of a difference it makes over just push // how much space it takes up.


    I think with some white sleeving and a decent looking 680, I should have something to be proud of ^^
