    Corsair TX V2 850W PSU (maybe changing it too Corsair AX 1200W PSU) - ordered

    OS:
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit - installed

    Add-ons:
    8PIN extension of ATX - installed
    Corsair H50 water cooling kit (upgrading too H80?)
    Samsung DVD ± RW Burner (Blue-Ray upgrade?) - ordered
    Razer Lycoza blue lightend keyboard - installed

    and ofc you know about the CPU, GPU, MOBO, and the other stuff.. so i dont care giving you more info about that ty for following

    just kidding. BUT there where some complications with the motherboard, so i cant give you an complete "worklog" on the mounting, since when i finally should press the power button, it wouldnt boot. not even check if there where an cpu, ram, gpu or anything (Qleds).
    So i had to return the stuff and put my Crosshair IV formula Motherboard inside it again.
    but, i hope it is back soon!

    here are some more pics. (i put an 140mm exhaust fan on the sidepanel too, hoping it would bring me some more cooling..)



    Memory:


    uploading some more pics as we speak!

    Oh how often I forget the beauty of Fractal cases... Looking AWESOME man, keep us posted on the build!

    EDIT: For the PSU you could also check out the Silverstone Strider Gold series, I am pretty happy with my 1200w.

    That is the one, I have been running with it for the past 9 months and really like it. If you cannot find one locally then def. go for the AX. Or if you feel like waiting, 80+ Platinum is supposedly planned to hit market by the end of year [rumored].
