That's a great looking machine! I also just finished my first build but it isn't necessarily done done yet but it is working great and I'm pretty happy that I was able to do it.

But it looks great and I think you'll be getting a lot of gaming hours out of that beauty! Congrats!!!

Thanks guys.
Got about $1500 into it. I have had the case, psu, gfx card, hard drives and stuff like that for like a year but I just got the new mobo and H50, i7 and ram.

So how was getting the 8 pin in? As you have a water, probably easy.

The 8 pin spot is my only hang up on this board right now.

Yeah, I have an extra R4 but I just need to go out and buy longer screws.

@patonb: It was a bit of a stretch, but I managed.
