All done and overall very happy, now just to install OS and get to some overclocking! The case is nice to work with and love the fan controller built into the case, looks like it supports upto 6 fans by the amount of headers. The GTX470 while very nice looks very small compared to the 4870X2 Please excuse the quality as they are done with a camera phone and also need to pick up some cable ties to just neaten her up a bit.

First pic just showing the card and why i chose it, the colour scheme matches the Utgard perfectly, even though you can't see when installed.

Xigmatek Utgard

i7 920 ( DO )

6GB Corsair Dominator

Asus X58 Sabertooth

Palit GTX470

Tagan BZ800

Prolimatech Megahalems



And the case and build. Gonna change the 2 Xigmatek blue fans on the Megahalems for some white ones like the case as there is a bit of a dicso going on there. Also, gonna change the PSU as i think 2 GTX's card the Tagan my struggle. Will be adding a 2nd GTX once xmas is out of the way

Sure the noctuas have better airflow/noise but the xigmateks aren't bad at all. The noctuas are also 3 times the price of the xigmateks and the xigmateks look 10x better than any noctua fan will ever look

Cheers chaps, have to say that i am not a big fan of the Noctuas, think they look horrible. Or did you mean for the cooler only AMD? either way not a fan at all and have to say these are very quiet anyway. I was looking at changing the fans on the cooler to the Gentle Typhoons though?

Meh each to their own. The Xig fans do look uber sexeh tbh, I wish they did different colours of the same fan tbh. blue clear red green too maybe. Just cos Im a tart when it comes to building peoples rigs sometimes /angel
