Hey borg, a minor change to my FX4100 build, I've changed the Asus M5A97 EVO to -

MoBo: Asus Crosshair V Formula

My 2nd ROG board! Stick around, I'll be scouting for an FX6100/8120/8150, that'd be my next upgrade!

Hey Borg
Could you please update my rig with my latest investment. I know it's not real water cooling but it's a step closer, lol! If you could add my New Corsair H80, I'd appreciate it

I decided against the H100 in the end as I think some performance would have been lost by the metal in the 600t that sits between the radiator and the fans. I have the H80 as intake (with filter) and used some MX-4 and it's dropped my idle temps by 6 degrees. I'll play about with it under load later!

A slight upgrade for my 2nd rig, upgraded OS drive to a 120GB Force GT SSD, got it because I'm impressed with it in my main rig. Also got rid of the X-Fi XM as onboard hybrid X-Fi enhanced audio is sufficient, and sold off the GTX560 Ti and am using the GTX460 768MB as PhysX card (PPU) -
