    Finally got around to taking my pc apart to reapply the thermal paste, correct the fans (had 4 intakes, 1 exhaust. They should color those directions instead of blending them into the plastic), and RMA my soundcard. Then when I had everything back together, my pc decided to boot. Found out it was the front connectors were placed wrong. Then I put it back together for a second time only to find out the ssd drive wasn't in properly. When I fixed that, I went to overclock it to 4.7 (from 4.5) only to find out my RAM timings were set to 11-11-11-28 (how that happened I don't know). On top of all this, I found out my camera has a bad battery that I need to replace, so I apologize for my iPhone camera quality. I'll try to update it tomorrow when I fix my camera.

    Specs:

    Case: Cooler Master HAF X
    CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K (OC'd to 4.5. Still working on the correct settings for 4.7. Probably won't happen til I replace my CPU cooler or get a water cooling setup. Either way, it runs 4.5ghz stable at 60C).
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V8
    Motherboard: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3)
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X 8GB
    GPU: Sapphire 6970 2GB
    PSU: Corsair HX750 (750w)
    HDD1: Intel 510 SSD 120GB
    HDD2: Western Digital 1TB Black
    Soundcard: HT | OMEGA CLARO Plus+
    TV Tuner: Ceton InfiniTV 4 (4 tuner CableCard tv tuner)
    Recorder: Hauppauge HD PVR 1212
    Tablet: Wacom Intuos 6x8

    Keyboard: Logitech G15 (original blue)

    Speakers: Logitech Z5500

    @Adorada, for the record, your SSD doesn't need to actually be held in place, SSDs have no moving parts and therefore don't need to be all super secure like HDDs. Only if you'll be tipping your computer upside down would I suggest you at least tape it down. :P

    Real men use a gluegun just because sticking your SSD's down permanently is an awesome idea. And if you don't want to drill holes for a fan - NO PROBLEM!

    I personally haven't stuck my SSD's down, and do have them mounted, but i did gluegun my 200mm side fan into a slightly different position (due to the rear radiator-fans combo). Also used it to stop that damn stupid reservoir bleed assist tube from dislodging itself when i pressurise and depressurise the loop during bleeding. Filling up the loop completely only for that part to decide to play silly beggars - frustration.

    Glue-Gun; for people too stupid to be able to operate a drill safely! (*Waves*)

    lols I used my Dad's Craftsman drill to make some of the screwholes in my HAF X big enough when I got some newer fans a while back. Twas fun!

    Here is when I took my computer to a friend's house and this is when we plugged it into his computer to do a full clean, which took like 10 minutes at least, to fully undo the GPT partition.

    Notice how it is hanging by the power cable and data cables. :P Yeah it's in its bracket but we didn't feel like taking it out, pointless.

    Pics from initial installation of the Corsair mesh panel for the 650D case. Replacing the window. I think I'll occasionally just switch back to the window just because the mesh panel simply isn't needed for keeping temps in check.. but wth cool thing..


    No more camera "flash" so the following pics look well.. very dark..
    I control two fans at a time with an Y-cable from fan controller. Hi-tech.

    And the insides since switching to Corsair H100. Push/pull DID fit in a 650D with an ASUS motherboard. I was getting reports that it simply would not.
    are all 4 of your fans spining when you let the h100 control the fans in you push/pull?

    mine will only let 2 of my 4 fans work. i have tryed all the 120 mm fans i have and every time it will only let 2 fans work at the time. i have allso tested all the sticks in the h100 and all 4 works as long as i only have 1 or 2 fans installed in it.

    one of my friends have the same problem, so he is sendning hes to repair. the only problem with that for me is, that i threw out the stock cooler for my CPU, so if i send it to repair i have no cooler and he did the same with hes

    ATM im runing my push/pull on a Zelman fan controller, wich is working perfect, but it still bugs me that my h100 can`t controll 4 fans

    Excellent rig, but you realize that's a 200mhz overclock (5%) right?

    It could be his/her first time with CPU overclocking and might just be getting the feel of it before going higher.

    Not exactly as by default the CPU should only go to 3.8 on one core when it can put all other cores into a resting state. I'd say it's a 500MHz OC since the turbo with all four cores on default will be 3.5.

    I got tired of dealing with my old left-handed that I've been using since high school... so I got myself a new one
    (I write left handed but use my mouse with my right hand... it was always a pain keeping the mousepad on the desk and not sliding off the side)

    It's a little smaller than I had anticipated, but it works out fine

    6GB is not overkill for anything. And seeing as you have a triple-channel chipset it makes sense having 3x 2GB sticks in it (one stick for each channel), 2x 4GB chips would've been sub-par and one 8GB stick would've been plain wrong.. err.. morally.

    I'm confused?


    Anyway, have I just missed it or have we seen no SB-E system so far?
