Default 2013 AMD Gaming Rig

Hi guys, I thought I'd start my 1st post on these forums with a bit of a bang :)

I recently blew £1,500 on a gaming rig.. here's what I've come up with

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T @ 4.4Ghz
16GB DDR3-1600Mhz Crucial Ballistix 1.5v RAM
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 2GB
Gigabyte 990XA-UD3 Motherboard
Dell Perc 5i RAID card with 2x Maxtor Atlas V 146GB 10,000RPM HDDs in RAID 0 (ripped from Dell Poweredge 1900)
Seagate 500GB 7,200RPM Hard Drive
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD
Coolermaster Storm Enforcer
Novatech PowerStation 500watt ATX Power Supply
Antec Kuhler H20 920 with 2 120mm fans in push/pull
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi PCI-Express x1 sound card
LG Blu-ray reader / DVD-RW SATA drive
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Thanks for viewing this thread and feel free to tell me what you think! :D

EDIT: The pipes are no longer crossed, they're side by side now :)

and what are your temps? When I got anywhere near 4.0Ghz on my 1055T, my temps shot up to the sky, even with an AIO cooler.

My temps on full load reach about 55-58c, this is after running Prime95 for 48hours

I'm amazed you got those clock speeds on that CPU, I would think the temps would kill it but you sir have proved me wrong! :D

Courageous about your voltage, but if you're happy with it, then power to ya. that's a nice overclock!

Very nice. I don't think I would be comfortable leaving voltages that high 24/7, but its impressive none the less.

That's awesome! I'm running 4.2Ghz @ 1.5V, and CPU-NB is 2.8GHz @ 1.4V. Temps stay under 50c but I'm kinda scared to push it even though AMD lists the "safe" max at 1.55V. But you sir...... have great balls of steel!

I'm just curious, why the 1100T? Did you already own it, and if not, what made you choose it?
