Description

My first 2011 build, I will add some better pics soon.

Raid 0 with the Samsungs.

Preliminary runs on 3dmark have me at 33180 on Cloud gate, 12540 Fire Strike, and 168k on Ice Storm. Going to run some other benchmarks soon, but Im super impressed with this setup so far. I wanted to get a Titan Black, but they weren't available and I wasnt paying $1500 for them on ebay.

One thing to mention, this case is really nice, but I cant run push/pull with the radiator because its so tight with the ram and the thicker H105 radiator...it will actually hit the ram. I'm still trying to see if I can get 2 more fans in there to fit because there is a lot of heat coming out of the radiator.

I have a bitfenix recon coming soon for fan controlling.

This is setup is running three 24 inch monitors on my sim racing rig, and one 27 inch monitor for any other gaming I do.

I like your choice of parts 'xcept for that all in one cooler,swiftech H220 will beat the H105 for same price

Thanks, yeah Im not exactly thrilled so far with the 105. This case isn't really optimal for the heat the machine puts off as well fyi.

+1 I want to run this same combination of case and mobo. I can't see it clearly in your last shot but I was wondering if it's possible to leave just the bottom hdd cage in to still use 3.5 inch drives for storage with a card 287mm long.

Very nice btw
