    I've posted this on the countdown thread but for the sake of this thread I'll just leave the imgur link here so you guys can check it out.

    Water cooling my shrine - Imgur
    NEW! HOT PICTURE! That's right, GTX 770's in fucking SLI!! No more AYYEMMDEE.
    [​IMG]

    It's the watercooling process of my rig, with a finished photo at the end.
    Yes I did tie a tiny string to the GPU to prevent GPU sag as it's a common problem with tacky fucking pieces of shit AMD cards that crash on you because they don't make correct contact with the PCI-Express slot.

    Also for the specs:

    Case: Cooler Master HAF-X
    Motherboard: MSI Z68A-GD65 G3
    Optical drive: Generic Lite-On DVD Writer/Reader
    Boot: Curcial M4 64GB SSD
    Storage: Seagate Baracuda 500GB HDD
    CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K @3,3Ghz (Stock atm, will OC)
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD7950 3GB OC
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz (4X4GB)
    PSU: Corsair AX850 80+ Gold

    Now to the bragging part, cooling:

    EK-Supremacy (Copper Plexi) CPU Waterblock
    EK-CoolStream RAD XTX 360 (46mm)
    EK-FAN Silent 120-1600 RPM (GELID branded x3)
    EK-DCP 4.0 Pump
    EK-Multioption RES X2 - 150 Basic
    TUBE Masterkleer 12,7/9,5 CLEAR (2 meters)
    EK-PSC Fitting 10mm - G1/4 Nickel (x8)
    Deionised Water
    EK-Ekoolant UV Blue (concentrate 100ml)
    Gelid GC-Xtreme (Thermal paste)
    230mm front intake fan
    200mm side intake fan
    140mm rear exhaust fan

    Also for the interested fellas out there, here's some temps: During testing, ambient temp was 20 Celcius inside my room.
    (First picture shows you cold boot temps, second is showing MIN temps as my idle and MAX temps as gaming temperature)

    You have some nerve showing up here showing us your specs from what I assume is a prebuilt system, if it's not the case then it probably cost you like 4000$ US.
    Not only that but only saying what OS, RAM and CPU you have isn't enough in my opinion here. If you're going to post on such a thread, at least do it properly instead of half assing it like this.
    Thread OP says you're meant to post pictures of your build here, not list three lines of specs and be done with it. That honestly seems like an insult to this thread alone.
    For the record, that last line made me cringe.

    RAM: ADATA XPG G Series DIMM Kit 8GB, DDR3-1600, CL9-9-9-24 (AX3U1600GC4G9-2G)
    GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Ti, 1GB GDDR5, 2x DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort (ZT-50306-10M)

    Mouse: Zowie AM-FG
    Keyboard: Logitech G105 CoD MW3 Edition
    Monitor: Philips 46PFL5507K/12 46" LCD TV
    I have everything in an about 7 year old black case, with no cable management - i honestly don't care about how my pc looks [​IMG]

    Edited:
    I should probably have used DDR3-1333 memory instead, but i don't know remember why anymore - probably something to do with the cpu not beeing fast enough for 1600, or the mainboard supporting it?
