    MoBo: Asrock Extreme 4 z77 motherboard
    GPU: EVGA GTX 680
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance black(2x4gb)
    SSD: Crucial M4 64GB
    HDD1: WD 250gb blabla
    HDD2: WD 250gb blabla (dismantled an old external HDD and put it in xD)
    Heatsink: Cooler Master 212 evo with 1 fan only :S
    PSU: Corsair TX 750w v2

    Peripherals:

    It looks very nice! Forgive my ignorance though, what is that square thingy next to the PSU?
    It seems like a little radiator or a tiny hard disk :3

    Edit: oh, seems like it's a little HD cage now that I see it better :3

    @AtaraxyDarkmoonFaire Indeed that is a little HDD cage, originally I've removed that for more space, but after wanting to add that small hard drive I realised I didn't have any more converters from 3,5" to 2,5" so I decided to put that back in

    Nice OC on that 2500k with only a one fan Evo Ninjaxl! I've been struggling to get mine past 4.5ghz.

    New build, slight upgrade from my old one. I haven't really done any overclocking yet, for now it's just the performance setting in the UEFI running the CPU at 4.2GHz. There are a few cables visible in the pictures but they're "fixed" now.

    ~10 minutes to install Windows from USB, definitely faster than my old system

    I had some sound dampening foam so I padded the surfaces in the case, to be honest I have no idea if it'll really make a difference but I thought why not.

    Enjoy!

    SPECIFICATIONS:


    PERIPHERALS:









    Edit:

    Added, LG IPS monitor, Asus 280x TOP, Asus Xonar DGX, Sidewinder X4 Keyboard, new headphones, external storage.

    Removed, Sapphire 7850, Logitech G110, old Sony Headphones.

    Looks VERY clean and slick Notarget! Great job!!! Looking forward to you making the OC stable and a real one and posting in the CPU OC leaderboards! Also - GPU if you want. ;p

    I REALLY like the look though, seriously, I took some second and third glances. :P And I love the little note open on your monitor in the 6th picture. You silly guy.

    I sent you a PM but be careful OC'ing it's going to throw off some good heat and Ivy bridges are known to give off some good heat.
    Keep a close eye on temps.

    So long as you keep below vCore = 1.35V you should be fine with the heat output. Should be enough for a 4.5Ghz OC.

    Looks pretty neat so far. Can't see cable management very well, but that might just be testament to cleanliness.

    these are pretty cool. First time I've seen a PSU on the bottom of the case instead of the top. Yep I am getting old lol.
