The cops would more than likely ask if you have insurance and if you don't they'd probably laugh really hard at you for spending $2k and not insuring it.

Cr8ton, your rig is very similar to my son Steven's(Demoshaft) rig. I have a quick question for you.  I see in your pix that there is a thing called Dominator Airflow. Is that something you ordered extra or did that come with the rig. The reason I ask is that Steven has the same ram but not that Dominator Airflow do-hickey.
Have Fun,   George

According to the specs the dominator airflow fan comes with the overclocked memory option.

Corsair Dominator RAM comes with, Corsair XMS does not. It will still work with RAM other than Dominator and you can pick up that cooler seperately for ~$20.

Yeesh, that ultra is HUGE! And I thought my old x800 XL was ridiculously big.


Sexy rig, painful looking desk!

That's a RAM cooler. They come standard with Dominator RAM. RAM coolers are a good idea if you intend on running timings that require more than the DDR2 standard 1.8V IMO.
