    Still some cable tidying to do, I need to get a usb3 extender for a start...and I probably cut the side panel a bit tight on the side I took the photo. But other than that i'm happy with it :)

    I did post some pictures of my rig a while back but here it is again............! My rig is quite a few years old now, but still smashes most of the newest hardware due to overclocking.

    Specification:

    CPU - i7 920 (D0 version, fully unlocked) -
    Stock - 2.66GHz @ ??v
    OC - Stable at 4.2GHz @ ??v - Normally run at 4.0GHz. OC of more is possible but I'm just not happy with that amount of volts without a full mobo water cooling kit. Max Temp on all cores of 62c when Stressing CPU and GPU (prime95 & Furmark). All overclocks achieved with HT on.
    Mobo - Gigabyte X58a-UD3R - Standard
    RAM - 12GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance @ 1600 stock, 1.5v
    GPU - MSI HD 5970 2GB (Dual GPU Crossfire card) -
    Stock - Core Clock (x2) 735MHz @ 1049mV, Mem Clock 1010
    Overclock (what I run at, it is stable higher but I can't remember settings) -
    Core Clock (x2) 950MHz @ 1190mV, Mem Clock 1250MHz
    Max Temp 68c
    In BF3/BF4 temp is around 53-54c per core​
    HDD - SandDisk Extreme 240GB Sata III SSD
    3 x 2 TB WD Greens SATA III 5400/7200RPM
    PSU - XFX Pro edition 850w Silver 88% efficiency
    Case - Xigmatek Elysium
    Water Cooling Setup:
    RAD Fans -
    Case Fans -
    Stock 2 x 120mm Front intake.
    Stock Rear 140mm Exhaust​
    Fan Controller - NZXT Sentry LX for all 5 RAD fans.

    The beast that is a Xigmatek Elysium...

    I've gone from a dual loop monster to one that is pretty similar to Goatsecks'. I much prefer my new air cooled Beastie to my old water cooler behemoth.

    MattyD, mine was a 920 D0 at 4.2GHz and SLI 480s. That's a legendary CPU there mate :)

    I know what you mean, with a better mobo I could easily push it much further.

    The temps I have and OC were all done on my old loop which had less rads/fans so I could probably smash more out of it. I keep wanting to upgrade my rig but to be honest, I don't need to yet, I love overclocking!
