That is a very nice looking rig you got there. The white and blue led combo is not something I would have thought of.

Here is the finished product. Not sure if I will move that one hose from out of the way or not but I will see if I get annoyed by it later



Sorry my Iphone takes crap pics.

Thanks guys. I am pretty happy with this build. It's fairly quiet and being able to use the fan controller built in is a huge plus. I will get a final pic once I get a better camera to snap a shot.

Thanks everyone for the compliments. I am curious to everyone's opinion on OverClocking this rig. I do want this setup to last me a few years. I usually upgrade ever 3-4 years depending on need. Thoughts?

Most I will be playing on this is the Crysis series, IL2 Cliffs of Dover, FFXI online. I do some video conversions for my iPhone.

Thanks in advance.

Use the auto oc options if you dont care to oc manually. 1000Mhz with 1 second of effort is definitely worth it.

I did try. I used the AI Suite and did the Auto OC feature. It goes through the Stress test etc and it dies about the 5Ghz mark. It does a double reboot and then finally boots into Win7. Then it comes up to a full screen test to see if I wish to continue or stop. I just hit stop and it sat at 4.9 Ghz. The only problem is that when I use CPU-Z it states the default Clock and Multiplier still. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

I dont care for the AI Suite method, it is all over the place. Go into your BIOS under Ai Tweaker and select OC Tuner. Works much better. System will immediately reboot and apply oc settings for you. Should be 4430Mhz with a 2600k.
