I've been so far behind. Up until now, the most I've been able to push is a Core 2 Duo P8600 with a WD Scorpio Black in my laptop. I wanna get a 64GB Crucial m4 SSD since I don't even use too much space. I got a 2TB RAID1 on me now with this new build and copying about 1TB of data from a My Book with USB 3, it took well about 2 hours but it is much better than USB 2.0 so no complaints
I added one of the fans from my V6 GT to the Hyper 612 PWM I got today and on stock clocks it idles at 28C - 31C in a 75 degree F room (it gets steamy in here no pun intended haha). I'm just impressed so far! As for the lighting, aside from the fans that came with the case, I got 3 of these LED light bars: http://www.xoxide.co...orlightred.html
My next build in the future will maintain Black/White but I'm not gonna lie I'm now facing the fact that I want to go for my schooling and get a job so I can get a BMW M5 E60 or 550i used simply because I love the handling (side issue). I wanna basically get the car with white interior LEDs.
Back to topic, these next few days I want to use AIDA to test for stability and heat. How can I go on about to getting a stable overclock? Some of these options are new to me because my previous board (ECS 755-A2) didn't have any overclocking whatsoever! I'm a total n00b in this case and I want to push this CPU and save a profile for when I actually go heavy duty in the future. I'm gonna call it a night for now, I'll get screenshots of what the BIOS tells me because I just have the X.M.P. profile set up so the RAM is apparently reporting to be at 2133MHz. This is the RAM I have: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231473
In the meantime, here's a few shots of my build. I got some pictures of just testing the LEDs and exploring my wiring options. I'll get some more pictures in the meantime also. The orangish picture was just from me rushing and I didn't let it focus but ehh lol.
