They say, they both speak in binary.
I put it all together while waiting for the video card. It comes in tomorrow, I'll update with more pics then. I am planning to crossfire next month for those people who are hating on the power supply. I thought the Mobo would be more black than brown, but whatever. The Phanteks keep the CPU cooler than other builds I've used the H100, and its pretty much silent.
Update 1:I bought a bunch of white SATA cables and white individual wrapped 24-pin connector. Do you guys think it will look too white? Looking for a better way to manage that PWM cable from the Phantek.
Update 2: Installed the Video Card and benchmarked everything with stock clocks and voltage settings. OC'ed CPU to 4.4 ghz and GPU to 1100 Core and 1400 Memory clocks. Gained about 3000 marks in entry, 2000 in performance, and 1000 in extreme. Played some Crysis 3 at Max settings just turned AA down to 2x and played campaign at 40 FPS. I don't know if I will even need to crossfire. More pics inc.
Update 3: Installed most of the cables, other than CPU power cables were wrong. New ones ordered. White cathode lighting looks good, so does the White Bitfenix Recon controller.
Everything Done. No need to crossfire my fps don't drop below 60 in any games at 1080p (Except Crysis 3)
