    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!

    Looks extremely sexy Daveric! Looks cleaner without the LEDs in my opinion though. No SSD?

    Did anyone else notice the boot error in the first picture of Daveric's post?

    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).

    Case: Fractal Design Define XL Black Pearl
    Power Supply: Enermax Platimax 850W
    Motherboard: Asus P9X79 PRO
    RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 16 GB DDR3-RAM @ 1600 MHz CL9 (have to put them all in the right slots because they are to huge to fit under the radiator/fan )
    CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K @ 4.2 GHz
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Dual-X OC-Edition 3GB GDDR5 running Bios 2
    HDD: 1 TB Seagate Barracuda, 320 GB WD Scorpio Black (I 'm going to change it for a big SSD in a few months)
    SSD: 64 GB Samsung 830
    Cooling: Corsair H80 with 2 NOCTUA NF-P14 FLX in push-pull config
    Case Fans: NOCTUA NF-P14 FLX (have to change the fan in the bottom front to a NOCTUA NF-P14 FLX)
    Fan Controller: NZXT SENTRY 2

    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.

    I would suggest getting some low-profile RAM, I bet it would fit under the H80 no problem.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233239

    ^Essentially the same RAM but smaller heatsinks.

    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!
