    Default Sandy Bridge E Build - Seb

    So I thought I should put this up here, just to give people a look into the new Sandy Bridge E system.

    Spec is currently as follows:

    Cooler Master HAF X (2x200m top, 1x200m side, 1x200m front, 1x140mm back)
    Corsair HX1050W
    Gigabyte X79-UD5
    Intel i7 3930K & Corsair H100 (Push/Pull with 4x bequiet Shadow Wings)
    4 x 4GB Corsair Vengeance 1866Mhz
    740GB Samsung EVO SSD
    500GB WD Caviar (For files that will move around a lot)
    1TB Seagate Barracuda - Backup
    ASUS GTX 670 DCU2 4GB
    2 x Sony DVDRW Drives (no need for bluray as I use the TV for that)
    3 x iiyama 24" (5760 x 1080)
    Razer Naga Epic
    Logitech G510
    Logitech X530 5.1 surround system
    Plantronics GAMECOM 777 Headset

    The Build

    So, the pics mostly speak for themselves in the build process:





    Original OCZ 750W PSU








































    And then something broke, had a few issues, sent some bits back to Aria, but more of my gear was needed for testing as they couldn't pinpoint the problem, queue me getting in the car...

    Out it came




    Also had a change of heart, the OCZ was only a few weeks old, but decided if I was going SLI with the new cards next year as well, stepping up to this would be a better idea:





    Everything went back together ok (minus the Gigabyte 570) and in the meantime this arrived:



    Along with the BoogiebugXL 'Desk' pad! The other half is getting me the Logitech G510 for christmas.

    Awesome posting mate

    Lovely pics, great rig, total overkill on the roof cooling - Love it

    Yet more proof that WEI is a steaming pile Just out of interest, what does WEI give the cpu when overclocked? I assume it's purely GHz based

    Sweet build - I seem to remember helping spec it - thanks for sharing the pics!

    Yeah, I agree on the cooling, but it means I can lower the speed of the H100 making it so quiet but still giving amazing cooling!
    WEI still gives 7.8 on OC!

    really??? my Athlon went up by 0.5 with just a 700MHZ OC!!!

    Anyway, that is beast of a chip and a truly awesome build, well done

    Yep, no change at all even with an OC of almost 4.4Ghz. Not too fussed though if I'm honest

    Costwise - I dread to think, I didn't buy it all at once, but if you added the whole lot up on Aria, it would probably come to quite a bit... :/

    Nice build, good pics as well. Did you buy another HAF X fan for the front to make it a blue LED? Mine came as red LED.

    Really impressed with this H100, it's on full at the moment but temps haven't risen above 52 on any core while gaming! That's after about 5 hours of playing SW:TOR.

    Yep, had some problems installing, but they seem to have vanished, though I'm reluctant to start transferring massive files until I can be 100%!

    Absolutely stunning build, loving the whole look with the motherboard + ram and general 'theme' of the build . I'm not normally a fan of a gaming build with LED's and such, but that looks great!

    Biggest niggle I have is putting the components on the anti static bag - BIIIIG no-no, the point of the bag is to draw any static to the external part of the bag. Might've been the reason for the death of the GTX570.
