This is when I was in the middle of my old build. I thought I would share the photos, even if I don't have any of the completed build because my camera's shutter crapped out.

They are Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866Mhz, its machined aluminum vs the white it looks like. I can't run all four slots at 1866Mhz so I just tried 1800Mhz and it booted fine. I have not bothered yet to try to go higher since I use this for work all the time and need it to be stable.

I had a sabertooth 990FX do that at my old work I got around it by updating the bios and running the ram profile. but thats with just OCing with a multiplier. if your using FSB then 1800 is fine but try bumping the fsb up 1 or 2 more to get closer to the 1866 :)

Oh I was going to do that at some point. But the cpu with 4 slots is a tricky lady. That memory in two slots runs over 2Ghz on that board no problem.

Ya in short my camera work fails to impress but I don't own a tripod and no table space was around so I had to get shots of it, from it (and me) sitting on the floor

Ghetto rigged a SliverStone AP 120 (Velcro ftw).





Can't see them really but using gentle typhoons on the teh old H100. NOT the horrendously loud stock fans (I don't do sever noise )



Sign of things to come ? (PS. its not quite what you think it would be ) and ya those QC stickers are being jettisoned (carefully).



Now for some night shots.





Nother view of that ghetto rigged fan.
