Been a while since anyone has shown off their new rigs. Thought I would start 2013 a little early with my new build. Ive wanted something like this since I got my first C64 back in 89. If anyone had one of those, you will remember how big and heavy of a monster they were.

Sorry for the terrible pics, my pup pics odd things to chew up so my blackberry had to suffice.

How do you like the pump on the H80i? Did they fix the rattling issue on this new version?

Ya my pump did make an awful noise. Thankfully Corsair had a firmware update for it. Cleared the prob right up. This h80i works just as well as a custom loop.

I like my h100. Slight noise, but well worth the cooling capabilities.
I replaced the stock fans with Noctua's for extra silence.

Ive also got a build here with an h100. Truth be told, the h80i seems to work a lot better. As for fans, Id suggest dropping the nocutas and replacing them with Corsair SP120s. Just that alone makes a big diff.
