My score with the i7 920 @ 4.2GHz and stock GTX690 was P13960. With the i7 3930k running at the same 4.2GHz, I get P15874. That's 2k points just for a CPU upgrade :)




And then, if we clock the i7 3930k up to 4.6GHz and set my GPU back at +100MHz on Core and Memory, we get this:




Compared to my i7 920 @ 4.2GHz, same +100 on the GPU, it was only P15089.


So I think it's a pretty worthwhile upgrade, I should be set for another year or 2


On the water cooling front, still waiting for HK or Aquacomputer GTX690 blocks. Only ones that I really like the construction of. Solid metals can't be beat! Also waiting for Daz to get some more XSPC EX240 Crossflow rads in. For colours, I'm kind of thinking of mixing red and black Primochill tubing with EK Bloodred fluid to go with the motherboard's colours.

I would say black/red for the colours, the current ones for the tubing look out of place to be honest. Otherwise that is one hot build. I miss my old redlines (DDR2).

Finally, my GTX690 will be watercooled! Damn thing cost me nearly $300 when all was said and done. $200 for block + backplate, $40 shipping, $50 in taxes/customs/duty.

Slowly coming along, it was definitely a terrible idea to leave Feser One sitting in half of my reservoir though without any circulation. It's definitely produced some major hazing. Lesson learned though

Superhigh ISO picture for now (too lazy to get out the tripod and what not):



Now I just need to put the RX240 in the bottom chamber and plumb that in. Then a final dusting and it's off to the races!

My fingers need a break though!

I have the RiVE as well with those same Mushkin Redlines and the colour scheme works well. If you want to maintain that theme, I would go with the Corsair Force GT SSDs... Very similar red.
