-Evga X58 Le
-OCZ platinum XTC 6GB DDR3 1333mhz 7-7-7-20
-Silverstone Raven Rv02

Looks good, one of the things I would have changed would be 1600 Mhz RAM instead of 1333.....optimizes OC'ing the 920.

enjoy

Yea! He is actually my roomate, basically he had it forever and it didnt work very well so he bought a gtx 275. He just left the 4870 lying around. It turned out it needed the Bios on the card swapped for the correct one, it was a known issue with that 4870. so i asked him if i could fix it how much for it. He said 50$ :D7

Also i just rewired the whole thing and amde it all ready for the ram which comes on tuesday :D then ill be able to see how good the raven 2 temps are aswell as the h50 temps! ill have to see if i can get 4ghz out of this i7
