            Wow nice and very clean! Hows Z10 going for you? I haven't heard too much about its performance.

                Well I've just upgraded from a i7-950 with a Radeon 7950 in it.

                This is leaps and bounds faster in gaming, I've been streaming and playing BF4 in ultra at 1080p (I have a 1200p monitor but Plays.TV Client doesn't like recording that resolution)

                My old PC could play BF4 at 60FPS and record on Plays but would dip at some points and was not set to Ultra.

                 

                 

                I'm sure anything I chuck at it will work fine.

                The biggest improvement was the M.2 drive, I done some benchmarks on it the other night and man is it fast, 2Gb+ Read / 1.6Gb+ Write. (In crystal disk mark)

                 

                Another Benchmark is here - http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/510811

                 

                Now to crank the CPU up? - I'm running on Air Cooling but the latest Prime95 Heat test only get it up to 79oC which is good according to the Blueteam forums. (Something to do with AVX extensions running in L2 Cache)

                 

                Gaming temps seem to be about 56oC / 70oC

                 

                Anything else you want to know please let me know! I'm enjoying having something modern again.

                The first Montage I've created with the new rig / My Radeon 7950 was used to record the first 2mins of this video, the rest all on the AMD Fury set to Ultra - Hope you enjoy!

                  that's a nice looking build..... I like that case...it wuz a choice between that one or the corsair carbide air 540 for me...I went with the air 540 due to the awesome airflow threw the case and so many water cooling options....but I like that...
