Guru3D Rig of the Month - December 2011 -
10. What sucks and should not have been bought?
This is my 4th watercooled rig in the past 2 years and this time around I cant really say there is anything I regret buying. The only thing i might change would maybe be a different res for the watercooling.
11. Did you modify anything ? cases/video cards/other? Did you do it yourself? Walk us through it.
Other than getting the cables sleeved there was nothing really hard moddded, I just spent a lot of time with attention to detail on this build.
12. Your 3DMark06 / 3DMark Vantage score (P+GPU)
Don't have any 06 runs on the new sytem but i have a 3dmark 11 run of 11,151 - http://3dmark.com/3dm11/2334400
13. Do you have any Future updates planned ?
Nothing right away but ill see what the next refresh of video cards brings and those might be on the list.
Anyways, hope you guys like it! Thanks - Bill
