I got all the sleeving but the tool isn't in yet... Probably won't come in until this weekend.

What brand heat gun did you buy or did you get heatless shrink wrap?

These are 3 of the best purchases I have ever made for modding.

Kawasaki Heat Gun




Small Side Cutter




4 Tool Pin Removal Kit

I have a crazy expensive porter cable heat gun (used to do some window tinting) and I'm waiting on the ATX pin remover tool (second to the left in your pic). I have a ton of razorblades that I'll use to cut the string with

I need my new car's windows tinted bro!

Do you have a PSU tester? Wish I had one, makes it easy if you miss a connection.

You will be happy you took the 4-5hrs to sleeve your system. It makes cable management easier and plus looks awesome.

Nope I don't... I think I have a tiny screwdriver power tester from my car tool kit, so I may try that out

re: rate my proposed gaming pc build


Do yall like negative or positive pressure in your cases? Right now I have 4 total 140mm fans moving 60cfm each. Two at the front of my case for intake, one output right behind my noctua, and one exhausting up directly over the cpu. I had bought one extra 120mm that I was gonna use for bottom intake but my psu is just a little too big to fit it. Only place left to put it is exhaust at the top closer to the 5.25 bays. I get cpu temps of 35 playing borderlands 2 for an hour at highest settings with my fan controller at low. Have not OC yet.

Would you use the 120 as described above, exchange the 120 for a 140 to be used as described above, or leave it out? I don't really know if a fan in that position will give me much more performance. I guess it might give me a little more airflow over the dimms.

re: rate my proposed gaming pc build


Im pretty sure neutral is ideal (duh) but negative is preferred over positive (or which ever one is more intake is better)

Edit: coyote, do you want to get on steam tonight and run me through some pointers about oc'ing?

re: rate my proposed gaming pc build


Just ordered a second 7950 Probably unnecessary, but it was too good of a price to pass up. I'll start my sleeping once that comes in.

Now I have to wait a little longer to get my third monitor and THIS... Hopefully the asus vh236h goes back on sale to the $130 range so I can pick one up

What 7950s do you have?

I just sold 2 of my 3 LG 23" IPS monitors for 2 27" Koreans. Tried the whole surround set up and it just wasn't my thing. So swithing to just 2 27" 2560x1440 s.

Sapphire ones. They have a shitty one fan cooler (idles at like 50C, but never goes above 65C on full load), but they are amazing.

Im looking for 3 monitors because I need one for my 360, and I'm going to start do some game recordings, so I'm going to be doing some multitasking

Here is my listing for the 23" LG if your interested. I will be putting my 3rd up for sale once my 2nd Korean gets here. (Which will be Friday)

If you are in BR, I could wave the S&H.

re: rate my proposed gaming pc build




Could I get a deal or something if I buy both? I kind of want to sell one of mine now and buy both of yours

Yea, I would cut you something but the problem is I'm waiting on my 2nd Korean to come in.

Once that gets here and it's not DOA I will be good to go on the 2nd monitor.

I will send my email addy to ur Steam account. Can talk more about it.

Who here was going full water cooled?

Just ordered the following:
EK 1155 Block
240 EK RAD
180 EK REV/PUMP

Going to just start with a single loop for my CPU, I have no plans on putting water to my GPU since I will be changing it every time nVidia comes out with a new one.

re: rate my proposed gaming pc build


I was going to do full loop, but it'd be way to expensive and I read that an air cooler will suffice perfectly. Hopefully I can start OCing once I get my PC fully set And done for a while... I have vastly changed my builds in the past 3 months

Started off:
- i5 2500k
- radeon hd 7850
- antec 300 case
- hyper 212 cooler

Now:
- 3570k
- 2 radeon hd 7950
- NZXT phantom full tower
- cooler master v6 gt
