DAMN Daveric! I love how your rig looks, and the cabling and braiding, wow! That blue just looks awesome! I invite you to post in the CPU/GPU OC leaderboards if you plan to overclock your CPU and/or GPU! That is definitely a killer system and looks the part, too!
Thx Deltrus! just wait for next month were i'll have all the cable sleeved and taking my computer to a friend of mine who have one hell of a camera to take some better pics
Yeah the back of mine looks nothing like that...you have inspired me.
Edit: the forum ate my other post.
Yeah...I forgot to put the windows install disk in to reinstall (using the same hard drive from my old rig which you can see in the corner in one of the pictures) and it was looking for old hardware. It turns out that pic had the best lighting with system on.
No SSD yet, though it is planned, and I've already replaced the top fan with two non led fans I had lying around. Eventually I will replace them with a set of corsair af120s (or the 140mm version if there is space), and I'll switch that front fan out as well. I had to cut out the fans and the ssd to justify the 670 with my CFO (the wife).

I'm not satisfied with the cablemanagement ... hate the cables on the right from the Sentry 2. :/
Need to upgrade my peripherals. After I cleaned up my room in a few days I'm going to take photos from my desk and additional from my rig.
Yeah, thanks! I know them but with my old rig I haven't needed low profile and the high profile were a lot cheaper at my retailer. :/ I don't know how much performance I am giving away with the current state (didn't found anything on google about this issue). Low profile on the left and the high ones on the right should also function or am I wrong? If the performance impact isn't that great this "upgrade" has to wait. ^^
Yes, it should, if they have the same timings (CAS Latency, CL) and frequency (MHz), which I do recommend you to match.
As for your other question, it's basically you running them in single channel when you should quad channel. That might help in your google quest.
Ah thanks! So it's quad channel or single channel and nothing in between. In that case my peripherals and the second SSD have to wait (but I think I can make a ramdrive with the additional ram sooo ... more to research. :P That's my first self build rig so I take gratefully any advises from you guys!
