Default The DarkLord

ok, well that's what I named my computer. pics time!


I cherished my case while it was still just a case even lol

The cable sleeving was an option I got from FrozenCPU.. not a bad job

The case accessories

just the size of the case to my height... I'm 5'10 btw

next part I got, motherboard, the EVGA X58 Classified

This was a big box, and Newegg is amazing... very good protection! the actual product box was absolutely spotless


Well protected mobo as well


MOBO accories

The rear I/O shield... for some reason EVGA thought it best to leave these tabs in it, when the X58 uses all those... interesting

had a surprise when installing the mobo... removable mobo tray!

I only got one pic of the RAM... G Skill Fatal1ty totaling 6GB


Oh this is a day I'll remember for a while.... BIG pile of goodies! and also, finally, a decent camera lol

This cooler came with a very large quantity of accessories... Thermaltake is a big fan of making their products universal


The graphics card as I opened the box... snug fit!

The power supply weighed a ton... prolly still attests for a quarter of my computer weight

This is as far as I've gotten... got the case all closed up, all fans running *this beast of a case has 5x120mm fans!* and it's running stable. I am next doing some case modification, hopefully hide some of those unsightly wires, get a clear window put on it, some case lighting, and one more peripheral... the Perigrine Glove!

System Specs:
EVGA X58 Classified Motherboard
Intel Core i7 930
6GB G Skill Fatal1ty DDR3
EVGA GTX275 Co-op Edition
Enermax Revolution +85 950W
Western Digital Green 1TB

Peripherals:
Steel Series Merc Stealth Illuminated
Logitech G9X
Creative Labs Fatal1ty MKII headphones
OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator
Peregrine Glove

Thanks guys... Sean, you were asking about my cooling, there's my build pics as promised. there are a total of 3 fans in the main compartment, two in, one out, one out at the top, and one in at the bottom, with the PSU as an out, if you count that
I asked around about 8 months ago, maybe even a bit longer than that, about plexi and multi-colored etchings. nobody here in TF had really even heard of this idea, so I'm going to be doing my first etch as a dual or tri layer etching, each layer being a different color. I'd post pics, but I'm unsure which etch I'm going with *currently have about 20 pictures for ideas*. when it's done is should be a 3d or at least a dimensionable design. sometime down the road I will be buying at least one GTX 480, and plan on getting a 6-core processor
