I finally got all my parts friday afternoon so put it together saturday. Overclockers fucked up and sent me the C7 1600mhz Ripjaw memory, which I'm going to keep and they will refund me the fiver difference. I think the tighter timings will be better for me.

The motherboard is the best I have ever worked with and it has heaps of features. I already had a Cosair HX520, so I knew the HX750 would be top class. Nice to see they gave more sata power connectors with the HX750 and the velvet bag for the PSU was a nice touch which I'll never use.

I haven't overclocked anything at the moment as I want my thermal compound to bed in. It was a very hot day in Spain on saturday so I was a bit scared of initial temperatures. After running Prime 95 for a few hours and things getting cooler, they calmed down. Idle now with the Noctua is about 30c with HT running. Flat out on Prime 95 was 70c.

The biggest problem I had was with my spdif to Nvidia connection. I just got no sound to my telly after fucking around for ages I discovered Viatech had a new driver which the Asus site didn't have and it fixed the problem. So if anyone goes for this and fails on spdif then get the Via HD driver version 7. Version 6 on the Asus site is crap.

Just for Larchy. I thought I would show you a Coolermaster ATCS 840 that was black now going bronze. My cats totally love this case because of the big top fans. I've had to disconnect the reset switch and sort the power button in windows.
