Asus P8Z77-lx
16g Corsair Vengeance ram
Lian li PC-7fn
Sapphire HD 7850
60G OCZ ssd Vertex boot drive
256g Samsung 830 ssd Games
1Tb caviar black mass storage
Sony optical RW drive
550w Coolermaster non modular psu
Prilimatech Samuria cpu cooler
Lepa Apachee 120mm cpu heatsink
Xclio fan controller
Matrix orbital GX typhoon
2 x 140mm Xclio fans bottom intake/top rear exhaust

The cooling is all due to be upgraded asap,for some sort of water cooling not sure yet,but am leaning toward the XSPC rasa 750 rs240.That will be after a mod for the rad to fit up top.

Love the case. Good build, albeit a tad messy. Get a few zip ties in there to clean it up a bit

I love the finish metalic touches on the front of the case. I am hoping that isn't a plastic imitation.

No there all metalic mate,they all come as standard except for the optical bay door,but that is what I like about Lian li,they do a very nice range addons.I agree the cables need some work,I am going to leave them for now until I get the water cooling bits and bobs,then a full modular psu and a 2nd gpu will be added,to finish it off.Thanks for the comments guys

That's a beauty right there. Are those extra PCIE slots pcie 3.0 or pcie 2.0 and better than x4? IF so the 7850 is an excellent choice for crossfire you really cannot go wrong, two of'em is like a beefy 512 bit / 2gb 7970, beastly

Cheers mate,I'm actually changing the case The cable management is awful.The pci's are
1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (blue) *2
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black)
2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
3 x PCI
From reading countless gpu reviews for the money I had £170,the 7850 was about the best bang for the buck.

Saw benchmarks where a 6950 only loses a couple fps in a crossfired 2.0x16-->4x slot, so a 7850 xfire should do pretty well on that mobo

you say 3570. why not get the 3570k if you are goin watercooling? thats my only criticism tho, not a bad first build.


honestly tho, how many people finish a build, and have some regrets about something they wish they did/bought differently, i know i do.

Sorry mate it is the K,my bad.
I wish I didn't jump into the case so quick,but who doesn't like a bargain lol.A full ally case for £50.It won't go to waste,I'm sure I will find a use for it.
I'm not really into all those plastic and mesh cases,but it is hard to find a nice looking non plastic/mesh case,that doesn't brake the bank.I'm looking into either the Silverstone RV-02(if I can find one anywhere) or the RV-03,and for some reason the Storm trooper.Although the later goes against everything I have just said.There is just something about it,If I could think of something to do to the front,all that bloody mesh.
A friend of mine can get carbon fiber sheet at a really good price,so maybe something with that,with a design of some sort machined into it with mesh /filters behind and some lights.
