My System Specs

Default CM 912 & HK Parts

Hey guys, fairly new here, just decided to share the community with my new revamped build

This is what I have in my inventory so far...this was taken 3 months back

This doesn't even show my older systems :P

Previously, I was running a CM Cosmos, i7 860, 8GB's OCZ Obsidian, 2x 5870, Noctua NH-U12P, Gigabyte P55-UD3R,


[Go away, I know my cabling is a mess]

Then I sold a 5870 & bought a CM 912, as I rarely used the full power of the 5870



Then 4-5 months past, I finally got a job, decided to do a full system upgrade and rice out my exterior!





New and improved specs are as followed: [For now!]

Intel I7 970 @ 4.08ghz
Noctua NH-U12P
6GB OCZ Obsidian DDR3-1600mhz
Asus X58 Sabertooth
HIS 6950 (from HK for 190$ :))
Corsair Force 90GB SSD
Corsair TX850W PSU
18TB's worth of harddrive (not shown as some are sitting on my desk)
CM 912 + 4 Yateloons & 200 RED LED CM Megaflow


Oh and

BEFORE:


and AFTER:


I work as a computer assembly, so I started getting nit picky about it. I spent about 5 minutes on the cable management, didnt really care after awhile :P

you should care about wire management. It keeps temps down and looks a lot better.
