Default New guys rig

Hey all, I'm new here to HWC. Just stumbled upon this site recently and have been a member at OC Forums for a while.

Figured a good way to introduce myself would be to show what kind of rig I'm running.

Asus Maximus Formula
E8400 running at 4.05 Ghz with 1.38 Vcore, cooled by a TRU 120E
BFG 9800 GX2 at 771/1927/1098
4 Gigs of OCZ reaper PC8500
Corsair HX1000
Velociraptor, Raptor and some storage drives.
Pics below:







The 9800GX2 is soon to be replaced by a pair of 4870X2's that have been stuck at the border for a week now ETA is Wendsday.

It was nice to find a Canadian harware site and I'm sure I'll enjoy my stay.

Nice rig and I'm sure you will enjoy your stay...not just because it's a Canadian based site but because the members are both knowledgeable and friendly
