    I didn't want a Razer keyboard anymore, and the K90 isn't fully mechanical.
    If you want blue LED's that only leaves one option around here; the gigabyte

    Loving it so far! Feels amazing!

    No, I had a shop powdercoat it for me. It's a decent watercooling case, definately not the best especially for the price. There are easier cases to water cool for lower cost(810 switch). But it's pretty good if you plan to mod it and add room for a rad up front or simply buy a 200m phobya radiator. My temps are really good (35c max load on my OC'd 7950).

    Mortalis, a 200mm phobya rad doesn't actually fit in the front. The screw holes of the adapter plates don't align. Though you can mount it with other stuff, ie velcro...
    600T uses a mildly different fan, and fits.

    Very, very nice.

    Any advantage of powder-coating it? Or did you just not like white and preferred a more grey-ish scheme?

    Also, specs?

    Also, are those CM Sickleflows on your radiators o_O

    I am looking at getting two XFX Double D 7870's this coming week, would a SeaSonic X-650 watt PSU be enough to run them at full load?

    Thought 650D came as black o.o *looks at case below the desk*. Yep, black. Interior is supposed to be black as well so I guess there's been a lot of coating done

    Unless there's some sort of white edition though 5 seconds of google couldn't find one.

    I just wanted a more unique look that matched my theme. Its great and looks alot better in person then in camera(the paint). I prefer powdercoating then regular painting it with cans, it is much higher quality.

    Specs:
    i5 2500k @ 4.5GHz (40c max load)
    7950 w/ EK block 1000mhz overclock(38c max load)
    Asus p8Z77 pro board
    silverstone strider 600w
    XSPC RX240 and EX240 rad
    Gelid wing fans
    XSPC w/ D5 res combo
    MDPC sleeving
    Crucial m4 64gb, 1tb WD black and 500gb WD blue

    The fans are gelid wing blue UV

    Im happy with the temps, but this build took me so long to build(due to buying parts over time instead of just all at once, that im already thinnking about my next build I want a TJ11. Oh well

    I believe it should be. http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-ra...-7870-review/7

    They suggest a 700 watt PSU, a 650 SeaSonic gold X series should be fine doing it. But frankly, the way I see it, they kinda pushed the watts up, I mean you see in the picture, the card was pulling like 115 watts, then to say you need 700 watts for two is just silly.

    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548

    Seems at load the whole system with one 7870 was only 310~ watts. Frankly, I bet you could even power the GHz edition with a 650 watt.

    Yeah, I was reading the Guru3d review and it looks like maximum power draw on a 100% full load is 274 watts, so even in Crossfire that would be 548 watts at full load. Odds are I will just run the one card until I get a better PSU, but the deal on the XFX Double D 7870's right now is too good to pass up for a Crossfire solution since XFX is offering $20 rebates until the end of the month which knocks the price down to 215 CAD each.

    Pretty sure the 274 watts is full system. By the way I'd REALLY suggest you make a thread for this, this is Post Your Gaming Setup.... not "ask about video cards and other upgrades" lol
