    Put in the NZXT Hale90 too, to get a feel for it, and must say I like it ^^


    White Vengeance RAM looks as good as I could have hoped really, nice clean white with a nice 'blocky' shaped to it I guess you could call it.


    And finally the H100, with the F12's I decided to stick on it. Planning on p/p but will have to see how big of a difference it makes over just push // how much space it takes up.


    I think with some white sleeving and a decent looking 680, I should have something to be proud of ^^
    This is going to be EPIC!

    If only I could get my hands on a white pcb motherboard xD I think I would jizz

    Looking at the z77 ASRock boards now, but unsure what I like/would go with it.

    Probably gonna end up with the extreme4.

    Will update as I add more stuff, really looking forward to finishing this o/

    @Resinderate, that's the Arc Midi correct? I really, really like the white mesh. I'm also doing a black and white themed build, so I may have to steal that idea. XD

    Also trying to decide if I wanna risk buying a set of the white Corsair braided modular replacement cables and hope that they work with the SeaSonic X750, or just pick up some white BitFenix extensions.

    yeah it's the Midi. Once I saw a pic of the mesh painted white on some random site, it's like dayum, must do that ^^ Those corsair cables also look really sick coming out of the PSU too, really considered getting a corsair PSU just for those

    So I ordered some G.Skill Ares memory modules today, I am replacing my 12GB setup with a 2x8GB setup, so I should have that done in a couple of days. At this rate, I am chipping away towards making a more powerful build. Crossing my fingers for a price drop on AMD cards soon so I can invest in a Crossfire setup.

    Some really nice rigs here !

    I found some pictures of my old computer, thought i can share that with you.
    Comp is a bit dusty and at that moment i only had blue Enermax fans...tho i wanted red ones really badly to fit with Color scheme of the components in it.
    Here is my old computer with Antec 900 i modded (cable management,paint etc.) :






    Atm i have NZXT Phantom and Corsair H70 but i haven't done any mods on it...nor the cable management.
    Edit: hehe i just saw my old HDD ;> good old times!

    Yeah just a small update, was gonna go with the white NZXT 140mm fans, but b/c I had to cancel and order with those fans + the sleeving in it, I think imma stick with the stock fractal fans for now. I'm not really fussy and fans aren't really something I've experienced a lot so they might be okay :3 If not I can always replace them. Just feels like kind of a waste with the 2 fans coming off the H100, and now 3 off this ^^ Tis only like £20 which I guess is minuscule compared to the whole build but oh well ^^

    I am in the process of completing my Dream system. I have the peripherals and am just waiting on Ivy Bridge to release to build my tower. But I figured I could show you a pick of my setup thus far. 3xU2412M Dells + 42" LG up above. The gap looks bigger in the pic but I can see it comfortably in my nice comfy chair Can't wait to get this finished!

    Very nice build there Vorhee, does the sun irritate you when it hits your monitors?

    Also I planned to do a similar thing, but went to get a 2560x1440 paired with a 1920x1080 next to it instead =)

    Actually the sun was as bright and direct as it could be that day on that window. The window is actually facing pretty much north so the sun doesnt effect much and actually as bright as that window looks in the pic it is actually a white window shade that really only glows and doesnt let much light in the room. My screens have no glare on them ever... Best 20 bucks for an easy pull down solution.

    Also my phone camera will make things look like that occasionally also.

    So NCIX Canada is now selling the Z77 boards, various brands and form factors. The prices aren't bad, however by the looks of it if I want PCIe 3.0 on one of those boards, I need to use an Ivy Bridge processor, which makes me a sad panda. Anyway, out with the old and in with the new as my RAM arrived today:



    16GB of G.Skill goodness.
