    Hrm, I am going way back to my Q6600 days (2007? jesus) and I had to cool the motherboard (northbridge specifically) as it got quite toasty and would crap out on me. I shall spend more time with my bff google and see if its even a factor these days. I do plan on a rather 'aggressive' overclock.

    Even easier for me then. Thank you

    I had issues with D3 D; oh dear.

    Thanks again.

    p.s I didn't bother with a case, I have decided to try my hand at building a table to house my computer :P

    Yes, heat was the only issue.

    Hi!

    Prototype
    is almost done, took all the tubing out as i'm about to finish cutting etc. I've been working too much! Have only just started assembling a week ago (tested all the parts as soon as they came in though). All being constructed at a friends warehouse.

    Monitor x3, GPU x3, Larger SSD's for the 'game storage' and the m.2 SSD that was recommended are the only changes made I think.
    End result will look nicer, wood will be painted black, LED's in place, glass on top etc.

    Let's hope I can get more time off work to finish it T___Tit has been 3? months already. Le sigh.

    I had a Killer NIC, and didn't really notice any gains over a regular card.
    On my next build, going back to an onboard NIC, there were no losses.

    I'm not sure if they've improved since I had mine, but that was my experience.

    Win 10 for sure. Works fine for boxing and you want the latest Windows for your other PC needs. Win 10 will probably be around a while too.

    I'd say 10, but if you rely on software that doesn't work well on 10, then you can obviously hold off for now.

    Thanks

    Went with windows 10, everything is up and running now. This system is stupidly fast.
    A BIG thank you to everyone involved who suggested part-swaps for the better

    Kind regards,
    Kayley.

    I admire your builder/building.
    I've been boxing up my setup (in wood too) in something similar, and I noticed your graphics card are facing into a cooling unit... How are you intending to run the cables?

    I've moved from 3x 2560x1440 to a 4k + 2560x1440 myself. Approximately the same number of pixels, but boy it makes the options and the view great.
