My System Specs

Default SB P67 + Eyefinity

Some of you might have read a thread a few days back whining about how the Cougar Point recall screwed me. Well I succeeded in getting a mother board with the help of a few of you and have successfully finished the build.

Just thought I'd share as it is my first eyefinity build. Pictures are a little dark so cable management is hard to see but everything is sleeved in black and hidden away except the front panel wires.

Parts:
Motherboard: Gigabyte P67A-UD7
Processor: Core i5 2500k Stable @ 4.2GHz
Memory: 8GB GSkill Ripjaws 1600
Video: XFX HD6970
HDD: Crucial 128GB Real SSD, Western Digital Black 1TB HDD
PSU: Corsair Pro AX850
Case: HAF-X
Optical: Asus 24xDVDRW
Monitor: Acer 243HL x3 Eyefinity
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64

I got the 2500 to 4.2 with no issues, a few minor voltage increases for protection, minor overclock on video card as well. Ran IntelBurnTest as well as Prime over 2 hours and she performed flawlessly. Apologies for crappy cell phone pics.

Currently I've only run BFBC2, CSS, and L4D. All run great, the source engine games I can run fully cranked up with 4xAA and still hit over 200FPS. BFBC2 on medium and I think 2xAA I got just over 60FPS. Next step is Xfire as I want to crank BC2 on high :P

This is my first time overclocking so please let me know if anything looks amiss!
