    That Deltrus really manages to get everywhere doesn't he?

    The Extreme4 looks so small in that case, although that is probably the white paint's fault.

    How did you get the CPU power connector behind the board?? Im using the 850 watt version and i just cant get it to go behind to board, cable seems to be to short.

    Did you use some extension? Or maybe i should look at it again.

    Im using a corsair 500, p67 extreme 4, doubt that makes all the difference tho

    Try turning the power supply the other way around. My 8pin CPU power didn't quite reach either until I did that (I could probably have forced it to go, but I'm no big fan of forcing stuff to work).

    Get lit.

    I'm going to build a shiny new Haswell based rig next summer when SSDs are hopefully 25% cheaper or so.

    I cant really turn it around, only way i see it doable is pointing the fan towards the inside. Which im not gonna do.

    The extreme4 is actually a little bit smaller than a regular ATX.

    Nice pictures winx. Pictures 6, 7 and 8 look amazing - especially the last one. I reckon you create or mix music? Care to link/post any of it?

    Also, what's your opinion on the ASRock Z77 Professional?

  15. #8775

    Wink

    Thanks guys

    DeltrusDisc: my old Canon 450D with the canon 50mm 1.8 lens (my first dslr, hoping to upgrade to one that can do video soon), and my monitors are Behringer Truth B3031A, on some Quiklok speaker stands... Don't let the Behringer name turn you off these speakers, they sound 'Amazing' in the studio, especially for the price compared to majority of others.

    Marest: Thank you very much, to be honest alot of my build was inspired from your personal machine and your sticky thread on computer builds. Ive only had the machine for.. 3 days? First impression is that im really happy with the ASRock z77 pro, leaves me lots of future proof room, tri-gpu's, more ram if ever needed, and well maybe an over kill of rear usb ports? lol .. Give me a few months when I play with it properly and i'll get back to you on that As you can see from the components, im interested in getting into over-clocking, but gee its quick as it is at the moment.
    And yes, defiantly a music man, I've been dj'ing for 15 years, and producing music for about 10 of them. I decided to give my complete music setup a rest/break for a few months (MoP ... ) and re-arange my room for gaming / computer work, i left my mixer there in the middle for easy sound control for all 3 systems, and to still work on some beat production on my mac. As I've travelled though many various sorts of genre's of music over the years, the older I get, the more i enjoy doing downtempo/lounge/hiphop . Also produce beats for a group in sydney here in Australia.. i'll link you a couple of sound cloud tracks if thats alloud on this post?

    (a 1 hour set I did a while ago of downtempo lounge hiphop music)

    (some work with the sydney hiphop group, although this is abit more soul based then there regular stuff)

    My MX518 recently died, replaced it with it's brother, the G400. Here's to another 7 years, Logitech!


    Also bought a light headset because the Sennheiser PC 360 gets heavy after 5-6 hours of use.
