    Modru's Crossfire Build

    damn you odog, damn you.

    just ordered the parts.

    Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced case
    samsung 840 evo ssd 250gb (free with the 290x i ordered)
    Powercolor 290x (to pair with my existing sapphire 290x)
    Asrock z77 extreme4 to go with my existing 2600k
    cooler master hypo evo 212 cpu cooler (finally getting rid of the stock heatsink/fan lol)
    and 3 amd gold games free with the 290x

    all for $879.

    will see if my existing 850W psu is up to the task, if not i may have to upgrade that.

    so i got my stuff in today.

    got it in the new case except for the new 290x gonna run single until windows is installed and im sure everything else is working ok. posted first try (always a good sign, especially after screwing with that aftermarket cpu cooler always a pain in the ass.) also this case is a fricken behemoth and i don't remember who it was that said the fans were noisy but they are super quite, no rattling with mine. hopefully all else goes well. once i get windows installed and the 2nd 290x in ill post pictures wiht my messy cables.

    It was Spaszter who was moaning about the fans, so we can blame him for the doom and gloom

    And don't you go blaming me for your upgrade escapades, I merely gave you suggestions!

    Sounds awesome though, I can't wait to see it
