    Most overkill "updated for WoW:X-expansion" PC I've ever seen.

    Congratulations! :P

    Looks great though, seriously!! But PLEASE, use it for some games that will actually take advantage of TWO GTX 680s!!!

    Good games to do so: Crysis whatever thing, Witcher 2 EE, Skyrim, BF3, etc.

    Sweet mother of god that is beautiful, can only imagine the chilled temps you must be getting with all that rad surface area and fans.
    Question about the bottom 240 rad - are those fans just in pull, or push/pull and I can't see the fans at the bottom? Fans also do better in push (like your other two rads).

    Does your computer freeze solid if you leave the cooling on at idle?

    Yea, I have the fans to go push/pull on both the bottom and the top rad as well. (pretty sure there is enough room for the fans even with the top of the phantom covered) I forgot to order some fan splitters. The corsair fans I got are the high performance series though, aka, they sound like jet turbines when set to max voltage. So until I get the splitters in to hook them up to the fan controller, the rads will stay with their current configurations.

    All of those except BF3 tbh it doesnt require that much from your graphics.

    This is my first ever build, finished it a few weeks ago, I'm pretty happy with it.

    Case: Antec eleven hundred
    CPU: i5-3570k
    CPU cooler: Corsair H80
    MoBo: Asus Maximus V Gene
    RAM: Corsair Vengance 1866mhz 4x4GB
    HDD: WD Black 2TB
    SSD: Samsung 830 series 128GB
    GPU: Asus GTX 660 Ti DirectCu II SLI

    I was going to get a single GTX 680 but my friend had a GTX 660 Ti DirectCu II he was trying to get rid of so he sold that to me for $150
    So I just bought another for $350 and went SLI.

    Yup I went for the SP120 Quiet editions, really some amazing fans for the price (twin pack!) their static pressure is nuts and they undervolt splendidly.

    He meant all the games require much from your GPU, but not BF3. And i agree

    Are the graphics really that great? I might just have to check this out, I've had witcher 1 & 2 on steam since the summer sale but never got around to installing/playing either lol.

    OT: I got me a new Crucial M4 128GB SSD.

    I think this is the most accurate representation of the case vs XSPC res. The moment you start shoving in a lot more light the extremely small difference in color and finish becomes way more obvious...

    Oh yeah, and the coolant effect was pretty poor before. Here's a more proper look...
