This is the motherboard with CPU and HSF and RAM installed. (it should be noted once in the case I switched the side of the fan so it would blow through the heatsink and out the top of the case (sucked out by on of the tri-cooled))

This is a Picture of the case (notice the HSF) with everything installed in the case and yes this is about as neat as it gets.

Thought I'd throw this in here... the smaller one came with my old ~400 watt generic PSU the thicker one is the one that came with my 750 watt PC P&C..... theres a little difference the new one is about twice as thick.

The monitor was shipped to days later...again by UPS....again no damage...I might consider them as a viable option from now on.

Nice difference from the old to the new,,,,

And she works!

Hope you guys enjoyed this.
It was my first build and I hope to do another one soon!


Also I havn't given OC a real try yet because I need to reseat my heatsink (getting low 60's under load at stock) I'll upgrade the thread once I get my OC's stable.

My thoughts:

Case is very quiet. Fans are both quiet but noctuas are quieter, HDD is quiet
Burner is quiet when idle (does nothing so is silent but when I use it, it is very loud.

HD 4870 I put the fan to 35% and I'm getting low 50's at idle its louder then the stock 22% but I was getting 80+ idle at 22%


Monitor I like but I still need to play around with the settings to make it much better.


Also I want to thank everyone on HWC and NCIX forums who helped me with part selection, information, and general advice (and a special thanks to Death_Hawk who helped me get some free shipping).


EDIT: Finally got it

P.S. Let me know what you guys think

Looks great!

That shot of the widescreen beside the CRT is quite useful for folks wondering about actual screen height when comparing LCDs to CRTs. Judging by the pic, I'd guess that a person would need at least a 21" widescreen to get the same screen height as a square 19".

Thanks guys!

I've gone back since and curled my SATA cables around a pencil to make the cables neater.... I also reseated the heatsink and now have my CPU @ 2970MHZ (was at 3.00 ghz but it was a little hot
so I backed down still a little hot like 62 under full load I might reseat the TRUE again to try and get some better temps

And with the LCD my bro is like its so far from your seat....I'm like I have all this room on my desk now lol

That's really hot, I mean not to alarm you or anything but my Q6600 at 3.0ghz never goes beyond 40c idle 50c load. What is your vcore at?
