    Upgrading? What do you need from the Gigabyte board that you're not getting from the Asrock?

    830 to 840, getting a bigger drive to replace or or just need more SSD capacity?

    Its not really an upgrade per say, I'm just redoing the way everything looks, and the ASROCK doesn't suit my needs, for it, I'm getting the Gigabyte from a friend for like 60 bucks, so I figured why not, and I'm upgrading the 830 to a 840 512Gig.

    I'll post pictures later this month once I get everything in it, with proper cable management.

    Here is an update: No custom wcling, as dissapointed as I am by not going custom, it saved me money/time and possible failure. RIP Raystorm block (

    • Added the H100i to the system and bought Primoflex tube and "red" coil to wrap arround it.
    • Issue: Tube was too small so its only covering half the water pipe, although mostly you won't notice the non-covered one. The coil was rather tight as well (in diameter).
    • When the coil arrived, it was rather pink then red so what I had left from my spraing I used on the coil.

    Here is a pic yo:



    PS: Instagram takes shitty pics, il take proper one later. Oh by the way, the blue fan will get replaced (need to sort out sleeves, side panel window and fans next, oh front IO too).

    I tidied up my cabling a bit and changed my thermal paste... This case still isn't much of a looker.







    At least the temperatures are very reasonable, I neither my GPU or CPU goes beyond 60c while gaming.

    @looz, you should really replace that case whenever you get a chance, and try to get it off the floor! >_<

    always fun , the last thing ordered arrives first. (with the exception of not being able to order my waterblocks yet for the gpu )

    time for grocies and cooking first after that lets hope i can make a decent gallery of the part swap and product ofc
    and to those wondering why 1250W , when going for maximum overclock those classifieds can be very very hungry. (as in 400-550W each gpu)

    True, I'm thinking of Define R4 bundled with Akasa Pax Mate 2 noise dampening kit and a new CPU cooler. Probably Scythe Mugen 4.

    But why should I take it off the floor? It does have dust filtering, and air is cooler on the floor level, especially since I tend to keep window open.

    You're going to love that PSU... I have an X-650W.

    No dust filter catches 100% of dust, and the floor is where most dust inevitably settles. Raising it even a few inches off the floor will reduce the amount of dust that ends up inside your PC.

    I find cleaning the heatsinks every now and then less of a hassle than having the case take up some of my rather limited desk space:

    A Define R4 would be spectacular. As for raising it off the floor... I had up till a few months ago a smaller desk than yours...

    However I now have a bigger desk, but am still using an old coffee table (made by my great grandfather) to hold my computer up.



    Also, do I spy two microphones in your picture? O.o

    You do indeed! I have a pair of Singstar microphones. They work decently enough for voice chat, and that way they are readily available for some Ultrastar. :P

    Pretty damm impressed with the packing quality and overall feel of the PSU
    Only con i'd have about the PSU would be the stiffness of the cords.
    Pretty much no change in cabling on the front side but at the back i lost about half the cables from the non modulair PSU. (like 4 cords of unused peripherals being not in the way now)
    Still going to tidy stuff up more but that happens once the watercooling will be installed to so i can better see what's actually the best solution.

    Damn that Seasonic PSU is sexy! Makes me want to build a system with black and gold theme rather then the typical, boring, black/redd :3

    The only other gold thing I can think of would be an Asus Z87 motherboard.
