hey all! i'm a bit new on this forum, but i'd though i would post some pictures of my new computer! Took me quite awhile to figure out the part list, but i finally ordered it, and built it! Here is a list of the specs:

CPU: i7 870@stock speed (oc'ing may come, but i have no need for it now)
Mobo: ASUS Maximus Formula III RoG Board
CPU Cooler: Corsair H70 (newegg got it in stock the day i ordered the parts, so this was last minute haha! saw the review here, and though i'd give it a shot. and i must say, it is quite awesome)
RAM: G.Skill Trident 1600mhz , 4gb, Dual channel kit
Boot Drive: OCZ Vertex 30gb SSD
Storage Drive: 640gb WD Blue HDD
PSU: Silverstone Strider 850watt
GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
Case: Cooler Master HAF X

Took me awhile to build (i like being carefull ) but it sure is a beast! :biggrin:

Now for pics!!

Nice clean build, that h70 woulda really benefited if it were a 240mm instead of a huge 120mm lol, looks like it's blocking any little existing airflow to your mobo's vrm's. Excellent choices on all of your components though, looks perfect and professional.
