My System Specs

Default Pandora Build!!

hey all! i'm a bit new on this forum, but i'd though i would post some pictures of my new computer! Took me quite awhile to figure out the part list, but i finally ordered it, and built it! Here is a list of the specs:

CPU: i7 870@stock speed (oc'ing may come, but i have no need for it now)
Mobo: ASUS Maximus Formula III RoG Board
CPU Cooler: Corsair H70 (newegg got it in stock the day i ordered the parts, so this was last minute haha! saw the review here, and though i'd give it a shot. and i must say, it is quite awesome)
RAM: G.Skill Trident 1600mhz , 4gb, Dual channel kit
Boot Drive: OCZ Vertex 30gb SSD
Storage Drive: 640gb WD Blue HDD
PSU: Silverstone Strider 850watt
GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
Case: Cooler Master HAF X

Took me awhile to build (i like being carefull ) but it sure is a beast!

Now for pics!!

Group Photo!

mother board installed...before i realized i would have to take it out for cpu backplate

woot! intel.

the H70 installed, keeps the cpu very chilly

fine looking memory...

and now the psu


golden piece of the build

completed build!

yay, lights...

quick temp look, gcard is slightly oc'ed, room is 68 degrees F , like i said, chilly.

hope you enjoyed! i do plan on getting another set of 4gb ram, second gtx 470, and another storage drive!

Who needs a real doctor when you got my machines and their scary needles?
I also go by Silver Blues in lots of other places.

Nice clean build, that h70 woulda really benefited if it were a 240mm instead of a huge 120mm lol, looks like it's blocking any little existing airflow to your mobo's vrm's. Excellent choices on all of your components though, looks perfect and professional.
