    Posted: 08 Feb 2010 at 9:31pm
            I ordered my system back around December 12, 2009, but with the whole holiday buzz and some 
supply issues with the cpu and the reservoir for the liquid cooling I didn't get it till about
January 11th, but it was all good. As you see on the listing I had the Core i7 950, but since
it ran out I got the 960 instead OC'd to around 3.7 to 3.9 ghz. The day it finally came in
I was soo happy, this thing was more of a beast than I expected as far as size. It just made
my old computer look like a hobbit or a laptop lol. As far as performance it just blew me
away, I'm able to watch movies on my blue ray drive while playing MW2 or Aion and never notice
a blemish in performance. This thing is a beast and I am happy I picked DSO to build my pc,
because everything was put together with perfection. Crysis runs beautifully, I get around 80 to 140 fps in it,
            but I couldn't find the screenshots I took in any folders, searched program files and also my games in my documents didn't see 
            any screenshots folder.

             Me and the ancient Dell Dimension 8200 that served me well till it died.
               
                     Old Desk.
                
                                 Old Peripherals.
                  
                 There's the box, oh yeah if you must know I was in the middle of a workout when my computer came in,
                  haha talk about rushing home.
                
                 Beautiful packaging lol. 
                  
                  I was overwhelmed.    
                  Definitely more proud in this picture.  It's almost as big as me.
                  Taking out the interior protection foam, and this image adds a firm foundation 
                  to the theory of beauty being within.
              Yeahhh.... my friend with the camera is no professional, but needless to say even
              the spectators approve lol you did a good job Digital Storm.
                 Yeahhh... mess of wires, laziness + moving in a couple months = random assortment of wires.
          Lolz, yeahh about the box, this desk was not designed for beasts like mine, soo the box
          was a temporary upholder until I could get a board under there.  Haha the would have
          flipped with the computer without support.
Watching 300 on the blue-ray drive, installing MW2 on bottom screen while also installing Aion, haha multi-tasking you say?
Not many good shots in the dark, my camera sucks and so do my photography skills.
This is Lothar, if you see him run!  He will wipe your group, possibly the worst tank ever.  He was tanking with a greatsword until I asked
what kind of stats he gets on his invisible shield, and the dude replied which one.  
Thought I'd put some ingame Aion pics up, frame rate with that game is amazing, I've hit over 550 fps
but didn't take a screenshot at the time.  I have my 3d rendering settings in the Ati config menu at max as well
which makes my fps performance drop, but makes the quality soo much better.

My cpu is overclocked to around 3.9 ghz soo for longevity I went liquid cooling, but as far as gpu cooling it helps but it isn't necessary and makes upgrades a little more difficult lol, and my gpu's stay nice and cool without it as is.
