Man, That's a beauty! Let us know what kind of overclock you get out of it. I'll bet you could break 4GHz if you found a nice cool place to run it.

So far I've gotten 3.7GHz, but I'm really tired and I'll try for 4GHz and over (hopefully) tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes and I'll also have more time now to browse the forums :)

That system is superb, you made some great choices. After seeing that TJ09, I almost want to get one. The clearance on your 8800GTX is nice... on my P182, I had to remove the HDD trays in order to fit my card in.

Question on the monitors. When you game, do you spread it across both or just play it on one? How is it playing a game on a angle like that? I do something similar, but I just turn my keyboard and mouse on the same angle.

Great setup

Thanks a lot Deathspawner!

The case is amazing and I had absolutely no issues with things being too big, in fact, some of the cables were too short and had to be lengthened :(

Belive it or not, I haven't really had a chance to game much on my new rig. I'm still using my old rig and I just have the games on one monitor for now. I will install more on my new rig soon and keep you updated :)

Nice build Sameer!

I like the dual monitor set-up. I wonder what kind of gaming experience you get when playing with 2 monitor. Probably too large for my taste but i never tired it so...lol

Let the overclocking begins!
