This is my first ever rig, started building it summer 2010 after settling a deal with the parents.

With no knowledge of computers what so ever I bought CPU, MB, RAM and GPU. By a stroke of luck I got good equipment (I hadn't heard of this forum at that time).

Then I found the videos and eventually the forum, learnt a thing or two, and now my rig is where it is currently thanks to the forum.

Specs:

Case: NZXT Phantom

CPU: intel i5 750 @ 3.6GHz

RAM: 8GB Mushkin Blackline 1600MHz

Motherboard: Asus Maximus III Formula

GPU: MSI GTX 580 Lightning

Storage Drives: 115GB Mushkin Callisto Deluxe, 2x 500GB Seagate Barracuda (RAID 0)

PSU: Corsair HX850W

Sound Card: Asus Xonar Xense

RAD: XSPC EX360

Pump: XSPC X20 750

CPU Block: XSPC Raystorm

Got my CPU and GPU stable at these settings, could only just get 4GHz at 1.4v but unfortunately this is no longer stable 24/7, folding may have done this and tbh it wasn't getting me many points anyway so I might stop folding CPU. Got the Lightning overclocked to 960 core and 2320 mem.



Now for some piccys:

First just a look at it from the outside.



With the side panel off.



Lights on, panel off inside shot.



And finally an upward shot of the Lightning.



Mushkin Callisto Deluxe and Seagate Barracudas:

I like it, especially the last picture, the blue cold cathode gives it this chilly look.

Cablemanagement could be a little better, but nice overall.

I was going to take a second look at the cables at some point to see what I could do with them, and thats actually an NZXT sleeved LED kit that I'm using to light up the case
