Talking FINISHED !!!! Haf-x & Crosshair 4 Extreme

Howdy! New member here.... Thought I'd post what I did this weekend.

I just completed my new build.

Haf-X
Asus Crosshair 4 Extreme
x4 965 BE
H70 Corsair Water cooler
16 GB Corsair Vengence 1600mhz ram
TX850W Corsair PSU
Pioneer DVR 219L -DVD writer combo
60 GB Mushkin Callisto SSD ( OS/few programs ONLY!)
2TB WD20EARS Sata 2 drive. ( games/ storage)
Sapphire HD6850 Toxic OC 1GB
Win 7 home OEM ( 112$w/ hardware purchase)

I had to compromise w/ the GFX card as I was running outta $$$$

Total Cost $1700-$1900 ( would have to go through all the receipts. but its between those 2 w/ tax )

This case is a DREAM to build in, the only complaints I have about the case is the Mounting screws for MOBO/ screws ( some had burrs in them/on them and I ended up having to take out mobo 3 times cause of Cross threading and problems w/ the threads. ( OTHER THAN THAT 100% awesome)

Just wanted to get some opinions

I am very happy with this pc.

Alright got pics ( trying to post them and its not letting me ) probably too big... back soon

Welcome to the board, nice AMD build I will have put some more $$$ and get a 1090 or 1100, with all the ram you have it will make a nice setrup to throw some VM in it .

This thread is bound for derailment without pictures. Come on where are the pictures to show how nice your rig is.

I don't know what opinion to give since it is already a complete build and anything I say is not going to make a difference. The only opinion I can give is that you swap out your current Phenom II for a Bulldozer 8 core in a few months time and start folding.

You rig could use a little bit more cable management to tidy up your build. The cable of the fan of the H70 seems to be dangling freely, could use a cable tie or 2. You could route both of your PCIE cable power behind the casing and come out where the SATA cables are. It would give it a much cleaner look IMHO. Other than that your rig looks great.
