Here are some pics of my constantly under construction Darkside HAF 932 build...

Skipping the current AM3+ build because I was concentrating on building my Cooling System. We'll see what comes next but this is what I have so far for my budget system...

Crosshair IV Formula
-{955 BE}----> Now 1100T
-{XFX 5770}----> Now Sapphire Radeon 6870 (x2) soon as I get waterblocks I'll b xFiring. :cool:
EK Custom loop
Corsair HX850w PSU
1TB RAID 0
Win 7 Ultimate 64bit OEM
Sleeved with MDPC-x sleeving. Gotta sleeve the fresh cables. :)

My loop consists of FC and Supreme HF Classified w/ EK Black Nickel Comps, BitsPower Barbs for FC to CPU PrimoChill LRT, EK Dual DDC v2 block, Liquid Fusion 250 Res and Black Ice GT Stealth 360 topped with Yate Loon D12SM-12C pulling through Phobya 7mm shroud/Decouplers. Running GSkill 1600 Snipers for the time being, but will be going back to Dominator GTs' 2000 series. It had 1333 series when I first started out but only 4x2. As you can see, I'm running 2 sticks of 2x4. The price was right and needed a stable overclock without sacrificing capacity so I went with them. So now that my CPU loop is done I'm gonna recover a bit and save for my next ROG board.

ROG FTW! :cool:

Thank you Giannis996. I actually lucked into this Reservoir. Had intended to go with the MultiOption 250 Advanced but a Mate was getting rid of his Res and you couldn't beat the price regardless of what Reservoir you could point to(Free is a GREAT price! :D) online. His UV Cat was busted so I'm gonna mod in a Red Cat to stay with the theme. Should make these Helices sing. :p

So, now that I've got a 6core CPU to upgrade to I'm going to be selling the 955 BE and hopefully getting enough from it to get 2000 Dominator GTs' to replace the RAM that I have atm. I got Doms 1333 AMD Edition back when I first built this machine, but having four slots filled really curbed my OCs' so I went with what I could afford at the time and that was GSkill Snipers. Not too bad for a low power system but that too limited my Overclocks even though I was down to 2 sticks @ 8Gigs.

Anyone got any Recommendations for a Waterblock once I go back to Doms? I would like it as tight to the footprint of the RAM as possible with very little overhang if at all possible. Input would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Just upgraded to 1100T and got 2 Sapphire Radeon 6870. With not much in the way or room left in the PCI slot area am leaving the 2nd GPU out til I get waterblocks for them.

Average temp went up from 32c to 40c @ load from lapped 955 BE to an unlapped 1100T but that's gonna change after Chimp Challenge. Gonna lapp that bad boy but good.

Also added a 2m NZXT red LED light strand and a 15" Logysis CCL to the mizx. And tacked together a pair of 3mm LEDs' for the EK Supreme block. :p

Once I get a couple pics done I'll be updating with some better looking ones than I started with. :cool:

Looking around to see what options I have for Sapphire HD 6870 Radeon. Split the cooler off the 2nd one an it looks like I should be able to run EK blocks on it. :cool:

If that's a reference design (you have to check), you certainly will find a full cover water block for it!

LOL.... darnit... I was hoping you'd have the same Case tower I got from the treads title... I'd hope to see other enthusiasts use the PC case tower I used and maybe give me some ideas how to make it look bling bling... lmao

Well if you make a build log it's much easier to get some assistance there Mate. I don't mind giving some feedback but it should be done on your own build log. I throw you a bone though. If that Antec DF-85 were my case I would cut out the dividing metal between the 2 windows and make it a single piece. Never did understand why Antec went with that look. It's rather weak imho. Also the front you could use a colored plexi to use as covers instead of the bumpers on the front. That case looks like it's a Mother's dream for Junior's first car. Lots of bumpers an no giddy-up. ;)

Any other help you might require I've no problems lending some creative feedback, but let's do it in your own build log thanks. :cool:
