Default My Newest Build

My newest Creation, I will post my previous build, since my Signature was disabled, even though ive been with the forums for 2 yrs >.< ... I will incorporate my opinions on the items as well.

Newest: (note: I was daring and used all new products , for me atleast, for this build)

Antec Nine Hundred Case :

*Great Case, the "Blow Hole" fan was enormous. Comes with all the fans you'll need. 3x120mm Blue LED and 1 200mm "Blow Hole" fan.

Asus Rampage Formula Mobo:

*Awesome Mobo, extremely easy to O.C, one click option in bios. Stays cool, and comes with good monitoring software, and 3dmark06 and Stalker for free.

Corsair HX 520w Modular:

*Solid so far, the modular ability on this PSU is a great way to reduce wire clutter, only cords that cant be removed are the Mobo Power (20+4pin) and the 8pin and 4pin Cpu power cords.

Kentsfield Q6600 2.4ghz, I have it mildly Oc'ed to 2.66ghz.:

*Great power, stays just as cool as my other builds cpu, E6400. Using a Zalman9500 Cpu cooler. 25-35c (Non-Load -/- Load) Super O.C potential.

W/D 640gb HD:

*Nothing special, im not a stickler for the "uber" HD's. This works great for me. No Issues so far.

Zalman V1000 Gpu Cooler:

*Very nice Gpu cooler, Easy to install, allthough it takes approx. 1hr if your doing it right, (i.e. denatured alchol prep, thermal cooling, etc.) Dropped temps on my *BFG*8800gts 640mb by 10-12c.

Zalman RHS88 Heatsink (Compliment to the Zalman V1000 Fan/ Heatsink):

*Easy to install with the Zalman V1000 Fan/ Heatsink Kit. Take your time and do it right, completely worth it.

Corsair XMS2 DHX 2x2gb:

*Solid, plain and simple.

And of course, Artic Silver 5 Thermal Compound x2:

*Good stuff to thoes who use it.


Antec P180 Black Cold Rolled Steel Case
Evga 122ck Nf68 680i SLI Mobo
BFG 8800gts 640mb (x2)
OCZ GameXtreme 600w SLI Power Supply
Corsair XMS 2x2gb
E6400 @ 2.14ghz

Old system Picture:

Yes i know, Wire clutter, hence the decision to get the Modular PSU ...

I am using a BFG 8800Gts 640mb, Windows XP home OEM SP3, Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 on the new Build.

Hope this helped in some decision making.
