have you tinted a side window before ? ive never used a tint.. theres only 1 video on youtube but it doesnt show what it looks like with the window on the case.. he just shows how to do it and sais you should practice on a cheap one first cause of air bubbles.

So new Update

Canada post left a stupid note in my mail box saying i can pick up my order TOMORROW after 1300 hrs and it had a black X in the box.. there was another box that said " TODAY AFTER 1600 hrs" with no black x ... so i took a black pen to it and drew an X and brought it to the post office and long behold....


















Everything is in now except the stupid case !!!! blahhhh

So many parts look familiar :) Nice choices if I do say so myself.

I am very happy with my build so far, I am sure you will be satisfied too. I didn't push the overclock, I got near 4 but I am more comfortable running at 3.8 with lower vCore and VTT, I plan on keeping this one a while.

The OC links in the OC part of the forum are great, and the evga forums also has some settings. I found this one the best though:

Guide to Overclocking the Core I7 920 to 4.0ghz - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

Thanks to Chriskwarren in this thread: Noob i7 Overclock

Enjoy!
