    New Gaming Rig Build [PIC HEAVY]

    Pics from the new build. I apologize for the variable quality of the photos, some were taken with my phone, some with my camera... all suffer from my complete lack of photographic talent.
    Here is the parts list

    CPU// Intel Core i7 4770k (New)
    HSF // XSPC Rasa RX360 watercooling kit (New)
    Mobo // Asus Maximus VI Hero Z87 Socket 1150 (New)
    RAM // 2x8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP DDR-1600 1.35v (New)
    GPU // 2x Sapphire AMD Radeon 7970 3GB Crossfire (Recycled)
    PSU // Corsair TX950W (Recycled)
    SSD1 // Samsung 840 250GB (New)
    SSD2 // OCZ Vertex 3 120GB (Recycled)
    HDD1 // Western Digital Black 1TB 7200rpm (Recycled)
    HDD2 // Samsung F3 1TB 7200rpm (Recycled)
    HDD3 // 2x WD W10EADS 1TB Green drives (Recycled)
    Case // Corsair 800D (Recycled)


    Got some of the goods at microcenter, which involved a pretty good drive into PA

    Cleaning and prepping the case (aka a visit from the leaf blower)


    The old dusty workhorse:


    Mobo installed:

    This was my view during the build process:



    I, for one, welcome our feline overlords..

    That's a big one. I always like the Asus ROG series, and the normal blue Asus boards. I wish they made ROG Blue series.
