Nice rig! How about some pictures in the light so we can see it better?

That's a nice OC on your CPU, but what are the load temperatures? Do you have SpeedStep enabled? Because those idle temps on your CPU could be for a 2-odd GHz CPU, as opposed to a 3.6.

Niiiiice. I have the same case, but my cable management resembles trying to seal a squid in a lunchbox! Can I be really cheeky and ask how much that all set you back? I'm getting the upgrade itch, which might have to be satisfied in the new year.

Back in Feb. it cost $1,600 USD.
I then added a new PSU, V8 and the memory cooling. for around $230.00 USD

Thanks all!

Medjohnson77 - You got that right.

Dariusz,

This is my first build that I originally did around Jan of this year. At that time The 280 was relatively new and I had only one.

Less than a month ago, I decided to go SLI and I got a free 280 off eBay....it's a long story. And I also decided to upgrade the PSU to a 1000w Blue LED unit and add the OC Blue LED memory cooler.

I also took the time to cleanup my wire management because the cables with my new PSU are so nice.

You bet I have my eyes on the new 300's when they come out.

I will be placing both 280's on eBay when that happens.

Thanks

Mark
