My System Specs

Default Project: Cam finally ordered all his parts!

Well as a lot of you regulars know;

I had an i7 965 sitting here since the day they were released, literally. I also had a set of Mushkin 998691, the FIRST set in Canada to be exact; also sitting here since the day they were released (minus shipping time:P ).


Due to circumstances beyond my control I was not able to even get into this build until now! (thanks work, for making me a slave).

**** yes!

Haha

Anyways here she is;

NCIX.com - Buy EVGA X58 SLI LE ATX LGA1366 DDR3 4PCIE-16 PCI-E1 1PCI SATA2 Sound Dual GBLAN 1394 Motherboard - 141-BL-E757-TR In Canada.
(Honestly, I bought this board almost purely based off esthetics ahaha)

NCIX.com - Buy Mushkin XP3-12800 Redline 6GB 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL6-7-6-18 240PIN DIMM Triple Channel Memory Kit - 998691 In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Corsair Professional HX750W 750W ATX 12V 62A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan - CMPSU-750HX In Canada.
(Sorry Nick, trying to get that Mushkin PSU in Canada was annoying, I caved and bought a Corsair :( )

NCIX.com - Buy EVGA GeForce GTX 275 633MHZ 896MB 2.26GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDTV Out Video Card - 896-P3-1170-AR In Canada. (Might grab a second, we'll see!)

NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster Storm Sniper Mid Tower ATX Case Black 5X5.25 5X3.5INT No PS Front USB Sound & eSATA - SGC-6000-KKN1 In Canada. (The case is modified, the interior is painted white; pics will come when I completely finish it)

------

NCIX.com - Buy Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard USB Black Color LCD Programmable MULTI-COLOR Backlit Keys 2 USB Ports - 920-000969 In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Logitech G13 Advanced Gameboard 25 Key Gaming Keypad with LCD Display - 920-000946 In Canada.

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/sp...s/224&cl=US,EN

NCIX.com - Buy Logitech G9 Laser Mouse 3200DPI USB2.0 1000HZ Weight Adjustable Black - 910-000174 In Canada.

Special thanks to Logitech for providing me; well everything "Logitech" on the build. :)

------

Once the Mobo/VC/PSU arrive I'll get some pics up so you guys can enjoy it more...

Also another special thanks to MushkinNick; he definitely jumped through hoops to get me that memory back in the day - I've been DYING to get it running ever since.

Start your engines!

I bought a mobo and memory, and sold them ahahaha, Yeah I totally had this chip sitting around since then, oi!

Edit: Actually when you met me downtown it was the same day I picked up the case I'm using in this build! haha it's been in a box since then too!

Wow, I think I'd forgotten you had that processor! I'm sure that processor's been crying in its lonely box all this time.

It'll be interesting to see your impressions of the board. Haven't seen many builds with this board yet.
