Got some testing done and got a stable OC of 5ghz @ 1.35v and the gpu runs at around 2050mhz.... it could boost higher but its hot as hell in Aus right now and the AC can only do so much, so getting the max OC is gonna have to wait till winter :P

      I am set on the cpu and thanks to @Basard on his case post I pick his case. 
      I was wondering  If there anything I should change before the new cpu become available.
      I am not too worry about the monitor  since I will change it at a later date when I went with VR

      Several reviews of the upcoming Intel 8th gen CPU's have leaked, and they look like AMD needs to watch out.
      In the reviews (with synthetic benchmarks here) it looks like the 8700K manages to slightly outperform the vaunted 1800X at multicore.
      If this is true, the 8700K is an incredible CPU, as it actually manages to outperform a CPU with 25% more cores and a (presumed) +150 euro pricetag, depending on where you live. Not to mention that it manages to seriously outpace it in gaming. Could Intel have stolen the price/performance crown from AMD here?
      Lastly, the reviews state that the 8600K was overclocked to 5.1GHz. While this is great, the CPU got up to temps of 92 degrees C. Still. Perhaps Intel learned from their critics regarding TIM. October 5th will be an interesting day, guys.

      I've recently purchased a Corsair Carbide 540 and have been thinking about interior lighting. I found FrozenCPU.com where all kinds of interesting computer modding bits are to be found. They have interior lighting, both LED and CCFL, of several configurations, mostly linear. Some of them are USB powered and FrozenCPU even sells adapters to convert the mobo USB header to an external plug outlet

      Gaming foot pedals?
      They even have case filter material
      The following is not mine, but someone's who has added interior lighting to the same case
