Description

Parts finally arrived, once It was all put together I was having a small problem with the processor where is was reading the core temp at 10 degrees even with the cores maxed out >.< But apparently that's a known problem, since that haven't had any problems.

I know the wiring isn't great and very messy but after my card was in it didn't give me much room to sort out my wires, and the case is smaller than I thought it would be :P

Total cost including the case and x4 mesh filters was £420. (Not including my ram/monitor/hhd) Other than that, my specs include 8gb ram, 23" monitor, and 1tb HDD =)

Let me know what you guys think =)

"CIT Vantage Diablo" I've tried looking for links to a site, mostly getting Amazon or eBay.

Honestly as much as I love the look of the case I wouldn't suggest getting it, it's really damn small inside :P

It did look a little cramped.

Overall, it should do pretty good. You can always move to another case, one that would help with cable management and such.

There is a hotfix for Win7 in regards to FX cpus, I wish I had the link in front of me. I'm sure a quick Google search will yield the results.

Yeah I think I'm going to soon :P but for now it works fine and plays everything I want on highest spec without overheating :P and the problem with the fx core is when you run something like HWmonitor or speedfan it lists the wrong temps for the 6 cores but will still give you a correct temp for 1 and that's the one you list it by :P Least that's what a lot of people have said online :P But the core works perfectly haven't had any problems with it so far =)

last i knew psu's blew out the back , its sucking in hot air.It will work but your temps are going to be a lot higher i dont suggest overclocking the gpu much if you do any. Cpu should be fine since its going into the radiator and out the case and not sitting in the case

That was the only place inside the case to stick the PSU unfortunately >.< Yeah I wont be overclocking the gpu, haven't needed to so far and it's able to run bf3 and crysis 2 on full spec without over heating, or even getting hot =)
