Smile Prize Rig!! :D

Here is my prize rig, thank you so much Tom and OC3D and Gigabyte and Fractal Design! so much surprises, prepare for a spamming of pictures over the course of tonight!

The case is not even available yet for another 5-6 weeks!

If you think hardwae lookins good in videos, it looks 10x as good in real life, i have never touched an SSD or a 2 slot graphics card in my life until now and oh god its good feeling. I have just opened the motherboard box and inside, is the motherboard and cpu, and underneath hiding was the graphics card, ram and the SSD! And i didn't expect to find a fractal PSU inside either so that was another pleasant surprise!

Specs: TTL basically sent me a whole rig!
Motherboard - Gigabyte G1 Sniper 5 _ Compo Prize
CPU - Intel i7 4770k - Compo Prize
RAM - Kingston HyperX Black - TTL/OC3D extra
Graphics - Nvidia GTX 650 - TTL/OC3D extra
Storage - 60GB Corsair Force SSD TTL/OC3D extra
PSU - Fractal Design 600W Newton Platinum - TTL/OC3D extra
Case - Fractal Arc XL - TTL/OC3D extra - isnt even in the shops for 5 to 6 weeks!




Thanks

New stoof!







I will get better pictures soon, im just waiting for my phone to charge and i need to get a bigger desk

Motherboard and CPU cooler in

GPU in and cables tidier, will get some Corsair 120 what do you call ems, spray the ring green, you get the idea

RAM is in

Fan controller and optical drive in, i use my optical drive all the time but i have a plan to stealth it with a bay cover.

Surprise! I installed a huge strip of leds!

At this point i have it all assembled but it keeps shutting down and restarting every 10 seconds with the debug code of 15, i have checked in the manual and it says it is Northbridge initialization and part of the boot sequence but i don't know why its turning itself on and off yet. I have checked for short circuits and i can not find any, im going to try testing turning it with different combinations of components on and off. Any ideas or suggestions or what it could be are welcome as i just want to get on it asap, thanks in advance, i will continue to troubleshoot, i left it to turn on and off last night to see if it was part of initialization but it was turning on and off for about 10 minutes and nothing was happening so i just turned it off from the psu to keep it safe.
Here is a picture of a size comparison while i try and figure out what i have cocked up
