I call it the twister because of the water cooling in the inside.
Not much that i can say with this build. The 4.0 overclock has been down-graded from 4.4 as i was having a few problems upon boot, but I will be looking to move it back to 4.4 when I get the chance. (update: 4.0 has changed back to 4.4). I have had the rig since late November 2011 and from then i have replaced the graphics card from a Palit GTX 560 (non ti) to an evga GTX 670, also changed the PSU from 800w (forgot brand) to a corsair GS800. I have also added in a creative soundblaster 5.1 sound card and the SSD drive mentioned in the build. I have also added in the custom water cooling for the CPU only, using a variety of different parts.
Note that some of the things below are at the nearest match to what they are inside the system. Also note that the 3D mark 11 score is based upon the demo version and I ran the tests, Ice Storm, Cloud Gate and Fire Strike.
