First batch of parts arrived from Newegg.com (including Asus 23" 1080p flat screen not pictured.)
07/25 Rest of the parts have arrived. So now it's time to start building. (Amazon's packing was crap. So the boxes got all dinged up in shipping. But the parts themselves look okay so it shouldn't be an issue. However, Amazon not likely to get my future PC component business. That's for sure.)
07/25 Test boot complete! Time to cram all this juicy new hotness into the HAF 912.
"Construction complete." Now just a few hours of downloading software, installing drivers and tweaking settings. Then I can actually put it to good use.
OMG! This right SLAUGHTERS games on max settings! With factory OC on the card, it never gets above 70c @ 65% usage and all 4 cores on the i5 3570k never above 40c @ 40% usage at stock 3.4GHz. Plenty of room left and then OCing to handle anything that comes down the pike in the next couple of years. Plus there's still SLI & surround to grow into. Best $1500 gaming investment I've ever made.
