Here's my beast:            Yes, its liquid cooled!
 Well 'cept for the case fans.
I had to mod the bottom to enable pump install. (there was a 5.25 bay/cage where the pump is) For this build, I'm running an asus M5A99X EVO mobo,  AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz CPU, G.SKILL 16GB DDR3 RAM, HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 vid card. 5.25 liquid cooling reservoir, EK for both vid and cpu water blocks, alphacool dual 140mm  radiator (mounted in the top of the case thus why its has the angled venting), 2 Western Digital VelociRaptor 600GB 10000 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" harddrives, IN WIN GRone Full tower case, G510 keyboard, G300  wired mouse, and the oldie but awesome Extreme 3D PRO joystick all from logitech, 5.1 Dolby digital from Klipsch for audio
This build is about a year old. The wife's PC gets all the "hand-me-downs" so hers isn't too shabby either. (course it's in pieces at the moment, I blame BF2 for that) Laughing

Your computer blows mine away except , In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of your AMD Radeon HD 7870 are marginally better than my Nvidia GeForce GTX 660. ( about 2% better).
But my Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 was about 1/3 the price.

The Asus Geforce GTX 660 is hard to miss with it's aluminum cooling pipes, they look like high performance engine exhaust.

I think this machine has stabilized now....  It's been a long road.
I've been assembling PC boxes since DOS 3.x too, but this Win 7 x64 installation has got to take the cake for crappy tools and buggy software.

Who would believe the Win7 DVD when it formats a 1 TB drive in 2 seconds anyway?

I'll have to take a photo to commemorate all the sweat that has gone into this one!

Maybe I've been spoiled by that darn Ubuntu. :-)

That sucks. Good to hear it's stable now.
But stable windows is an oxymoron like military intelligence.

Nice to hear that i'm not the only one with software issues on brand new boot-ups, gawd,  remember win98  BSOD? (shudders) yuck!
I do have to say this win7 64bit (upgrade version) from xp 32bit went surprisingly quick and issue free.  I was amazed  Surprised

As we all have witnessed with bill gates products, you have to wait for around the 3rd large update after software release before (almost) everything is stable.
I had to be dragged, kicking and screaming to replace xp with win 7.
Even though I was getting a faster bit / version
