So, I asked for the best, and well, I got the best, with a free rocket launcher, Lamborghini, and Playmate of the Year all encased that wonderfully oversized insanely fast machine.  Despite the fact that I had to get an electrician to install a dedicated outlet with a 20a fuse just so I can use my living room to its full potential, I cant begin to try and explain the speed of this rig, the OC on the 990x holds a MEAN 4.67Ghz, 24 Gigs of blazing fast ram (Which I dont really need but ya, I got it.) and 3, yes 3, GTX580s that max out Crysis 2 with about 150 FPS to spare.  The system is beautiful and runs VERY strong.  It displays on a float mounted 40 inch Samsung LED 240hz TV with a Bose Cinemate Series II backing up the Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional ran with full optical cable.  Honestly I am considering divorcing my wife just so I can spend every waking moment with this piece of art.  (Im kidding)   As alot of people have said before, the wire management of DS is on another level compared to ANY computer builder out there as well as the Customer Service, in a time where 99% of the people dont know how to do their jobs, DS keeps it real and kicks it old school with thier mind blowing CS, and best in the business rig building.  THERE IS NO REPLACEMENT FOR DS in the industry, Z E R O!  *Sighs*   Now that I have said all that judge for yourself the craftsmanship of DS.  (Pics Below)

That is one sick rig!

I noticed a piece of packing foam between one of your 580s and the Wireless-PCI N 300Mbps Card (maybe that's it i can't really tell what it is). Hopefully you got it out though. Big%20Smile

I customized a PC almost just like yours except faster ram and blue fans with green tubes. May I ask how much you paid? my config came to $6600.
U for sure need a 30 in monitor to do some 2560x1600 gaming or even multi monitors to actually use those 3 580's.

OK I'm still not clear but I think you are talking about tec on cpu only, if that is what you are talking about, tec is for cpu only, there is no tec for gpus from DS yet, specially with the direction the new cpus are going, their ocs are higher and temps are lower comparing to older line, so I'm not sure if they will have the tec for new line or not, they may have it.

But long story short, the tec goes on cpu only.

Whats the tube in the middle with the goo in it? Looks a bit like the warp drive in Enterprise. Its a nuclear accelerator isn't it? Or the Dilithium crystal chamber.
