    I love this crap! I have not seen a post like this yet so I am getting this one started post your specs,monitor,mouse,keyboard ect. and pics!

    I see no bragging and roughly ~12000 posts! disagrees with you. You couldn't be more wrong and your post accomplishes absolutely nothing.

    Changed my "paintjob" again, or made it better I should say. It's not quite finished yet but I think so far it's turned out pretty good.

    éhh..

    Why not just use carpaint spraycans and masking tape. Yes the cans are somewhat expensive, but it'll look much nicer.

    1:Clean it with alcohol or thinner.
    2:Primer Layer. (http://www.euroscooters.nl/images/motip_primer.jpg)
    3:Basecoat twice (black i guess)
    4:Add white accents by masking the black with maskingtape http://www.wcmcape.co.za/wp-content/...2012/10/68.gif (wait 24h though, or you might pull paint off with tape)
    5:Finish with clearcoat if you desire glossy finish.

    That's more or less what I was gonna do, minus the car spray paint. That photo was taken right after I sanded it. Gonna go out tomorrow and buy some primer + clearcoat and black spray paint.. I'll look into the car spray paint though.

    Alright sneer away, I decided to go dual-monitors once and for all. Snagged a 1600x900 19" on sale for $50, will serve my monitoring/browsing and multi tasking needs

    Hahahahaha! YES! More pictures to add to the collection! When I have a fair amount, I'll be doing something special with them.

    And yes, I'm a professional craft beer taster. :P

    Also, /snide at Xuvial for the 1600x900 monitor.

    You could at least be like me and be really edgy. My second monitor is a 5 year old Gateway 1680x1050 (yes, 16:10, not 16:9!) monitor.

    Today was a good day.

    Well look what showed up this morning, 4 months after I won the giveaway


    Also I just want to give credit to Ryan Shrout at PC Perspective who ran the livesteam/giveaway with JJ from ASUS for making sure I got the board in the end. I've liked that site since I first found it back when I was researching parts for my build in the first place.

    If anyone wants the back story to this, my original post is here.

    So I finally got to put all those other parts to good use and here is the result.





    And while I was assembling all of this Blizz managed to pick the one block of a few hours in months when I didn't have a working PC to send me a hearthstone beta key (snagged the video card and hard drives from my old PC to use in the new one).

    I jumped into LFR to take the new CPU (i5-4670k) for a test drive and on the "good" preset my fps on bosses went from 3 to 40-45 (was getting about 5-8 fps on the lowest preset on the old CPU).

    I haven't overclocked it.........yet.

    My GPU will probably be the next thing to get changed in a few months time, thinking of getting the R9 280x direct CU TOP, followed by a monitor (a 280x on a 1600x900 display sounds like a bit of a joke when not in eyefinity), maybe one of those Korean 1440p ones that are going for ~€250-300 on Ebay, put the 2 1440x900 beside it in portrait mode and mount the 1600x900 one on the pole above the rest.
    (realized that is not in the other shots)


    As a side note, it seems this was well overdue, that dust

    That Sabertooth looks even more awesome when it's actually installed in a system, so congrats on the win!

    I've personally just done a massive system rebuild.
    Before:
    - 2600K
    - GTX670
    - P8P67 WS Revolution
    - 120GB Corsair Force 3 as main drive + 3 other SSD's

    After/Now:
    - 4670K
    - 7970 Matrix Platinum (based on the Ghz edition core)
    - Z87X-UD4H
    - 256GB Samsung 840 Pro as main drive + other SSD's remained in place

    I bought the drive last week, and though it was perhaps foolish, I bought the rest of the parts before the weekend and they turned up on Monday (i.e. day before R9 NDA lifted/release). Benchmark results didn't sway me so I'm not upset that I was impatient. I'd had issues with NVIDIA for a long time, and switching to AMD was the last option. It might have been the CPU or board that fixed the issues, but all the problems seemed to be related to the card or NVIDIA drivers (based upon a lot of research of similar cases).

    I've not needed to OC the card as it's plenty fast enough for even BF4 Ultra at 1440p (without AA, but resolution alleviates much of that need) and still push up to 57 FPS. Perhaps I'll give it a try once I've looked up some specifics on the card -- generally I've read that this card isn't too OC friendly, but I'll need to research it properly first. I have done some overclocking on the CPU, but could only get 4.2Ghz stable at 1.22V. Even going to 1.3V and tweaking LLC and other relevant voltages couldn't push it up any further without crashing during OCCT. I'm not that concerned as it's still turned out to be a decent enough improvement in performance, though perhaps the features of the board (e.g. fastboot) are going some way towards that feeling.

    Unfortunately, Corsair Link doesn't work with Haswell chips, outright crashing in some cases, but not recognising temperatures when it does work. However, somewhat of a bonus of this board is that it's got 2 CPU fan headers just above the PCIE slots (along with 3-4 other headers), so I hook both H100i fans into there and control them from EasyTune (at least, if I want something more than the presets in BIOS). It's not ideal, but it'll do.

    The new drive performance is pretty good as far as SSD's go. It's not really easy to compare them in 'real situations' instead of benchmarks as it almost always relies on access times which are almost always similar. I'll just say that I'm glad I made the switch even if just for the capacity increase.

    It's 5:30AM here but I'll try and get some pics tomorrow. The card looks very sleek, especially alongside an 'out of the way' cooler like the H100i, but the entire system would look better with some Corsair Dominator Platinum, and either a Sabertooth or the 'shielded' ROG Board. I'm planning to replace the RAM with Dominator in a month or 2, and replace the 3 remaining smaller SSD's with a larger single one. After that, it'll probably just be a case switch (perhaps, not yet 100% decided).
