Nice rig! Enjoy it mate.

My rig shares many parts with yours as well. Pretty much the same as UndeadKing's. (Blatant photocopier). What can I say? Great minds think alike.

Got it a couple days ago, there were problems with the way I installed the OS so I had to do a format. Also the voltage for the RAM was at 1.5 by default from the mother board but the recommended voltage is at 1.65. So took me a while to figure it out but here are the vaildators:

Maybe tommorow I will upload pictures of the hardware and their boxes.

Ya fast ram needs 1.65+ volts and I fell bad for people who don't know when they buy a good system. Intel should have some sort of sensor for detecting how much voltage the ram should be getting to run at standard spec.

Looks Great! Don't you just love the cable routing in a 922?

I do actually. I wanted to do some cable cleaning today, but the god dammed 24 pin wouldn't come out from the mother board so i just cleaned the SATA ones. I have no idea why is it so hardly stuck in there. I think the switch might be damaged.

Looking very nice! You could do a little better with the cable management, but it's a very good start :D
