One of the best mashes I've heard in a long while, smooth from start to finish. The Jaydiohead link is also definitely worth a shout, although it's a bit more well known than this absolute gem. Enjoy, Matt.

I've Created a Monster...

As the title suggests, I have built a beast of a computer. It did cost me an arm and a leg, but it is worth every penny spent on it. The photos don't do it any justice, but I still uploaded em', here are they along with the specification I used:

- Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping (OC to 3.5Ghz)
- Antec TruePower New 650W
- ATI Radeon HD 5870
- Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R
- Corsair XMS3 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel 9-9-9-24
- Antec Nine Hundred Two (902) Case
- Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB
- 1TB External HDD
- Razer DeathAdder Mouse
- Saitek Eclipse 2 keyboard (not 3)
- Titan TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir CPU Cooler (Socket LGA1366)
- Asus u3s6 PCI-e USB 3 and Sata 3 (6Gb/s)
- Asus Xonar DX PCI-e sound card
- Random TV tuner
- Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Receiver

Right after I applied the thermal compound.

First phase testing, to make sure all the main components are working.

Everything installed and the wires are being done as neatly as the case allows.
