I bought the 35mm from a member here just so I could pay the rig justice... having issues with the lighting since my meter is out of battery and no store in a 10KM radius had the lithium battery it needs...

My PSU is bad, RMA won't be here until the 4th, so I haven't pushed it too far.

It posted and booted in Windows at 4.2ghz with 51C load temp for one hour, then I went back to stock.

Now that, is one bad boy rig!! tigerlord. Just curious, how much?

I too build my own computers. But never anything that awesome, yet.

On your PSU, I was thinking may be it really isn't enough to power all that you have in there.

Put your stuff in this calculator:

It's plenty, I assure you

I'll have to change it once the dual 580GTX get here, but otherwise, right now, it's more than enough. Full drawn is about 580W, barely.

Edit: site recommends 599W, which is close to my readings. Total cost must be close to 3.5G

Good to go then, soon as new one comes in.

3.5G, I can't imagine spending that on one rig. Course, I'd like to.

Well, that's all very nice, but does it make you a better Solitaire player?

Nice detail shots.
