    Yea I guess that is about it, works like a charm and will be upgrading to a GTX 780 TI soonish, along with a new case: the Carbide 540 Air from Corsair.
    Looking good!

    Both at 1200 Core, 3500 (7000) Vram, boost pushes the cores up to 1260~1300, depending. Idle temps of 30 degrees, 60~65 for the lower one under Furmark, 65~73 for the top one.

    Decided to sit out of upgrading them atm, I want to see what's coming next year first.

    2nd,

    i also question the specs, 2500Mhz (oc? or typo) ram is not going to run stable on a 3960x, 2133 is about as high as you can get stable, the memory controller is one of the big advantages to upgrading to ivy-e

    Just moved so walls and etc. are pretty plain and cable management non-existant. Here's an overall pic though:



    Everything can change color except the Blackwidow, so I just made everything green to match for the pic lol.

    Sorted the cable management out a bit now, its hard doing good cable work in a small case but i think that's about how good i can get it right now.

    Anyhow, components being:
    ASRock Z87M Extreme4 mATX
    Samsung SSD Pro 840 256GB
    Intel Core i7 4770K 3.5 GHz
    Corsair 4GB (2x4GB) CL9 1600Mhz XMS3
    2x Noctua NF-S12B-FLX case fans
    Asus GeForce GTX 780 3GB
    Noctua NH-U14S cpu heatsink
    BitFenix Prodigy M white as case.
    2x WD RE4 1TB (gonna RAID these two later on)
    Corsair AX 760W 80+ Platinum Modular (been told its overpriced but only one of the recommendation available in my country is from a store i do not trust in case i need to RMA something, so meh :P)

    Cheap? The price has barely gone down the last 2 years... But yea, 8gb is the way to go nowadays.

    I finally decided to get a proper sized monitor and while I was hesitant for quite a while, on Saturday I brought one of those Korean 1440p monitors on ebay and it arrived today.





    The monitor on the left is the one I was using as my primary up until now.

    I will admit, I did wuss out at the last minute and payed the extra 24 euro for the "pixel perfect" version, but that is exactly what I got, not a single defective pixel I can detect and while there is some very minor back light bleed, I had to bring up and full black screen before I even noticed it.

    The few things I was concerned about before I brought it, such as the response time, turned out to be non-issues. Though I am pretty sure I need a bigger/better desk at this point.

    And while my Radeon HD 6850 can run games on it reasonably well as long as I keep the settings fairly conservative, I plan to upgrade to a R9 290 at some point after the board partners are allowed to release their custom coolers.
