RE: New Tier 5ish Build
Do those ratings even mean anything? ^^

RE: New Tier 5ish Build
I'm not entirely sure but upon research 5.9 is the max score you can get with a spinning hard disk so that explains my question.

RE: New Tier 5ish Build
very nice. them fan lights sure are purty. cant really tell from the pics but if your power leads are short you can get some lead extensions to better route them around the MB instead of over the top. helps a little with better air flow.

Yeah, seems 5.9 is the standard for high end 7200rpm hdds. I wondered that too until I saw all others posting their windows experience like that too on other windows websites. So no biggie.

Enjoy your rig! Big Grin

Little update, 6870 has been installed and it plays CS:GO, Tribes, and TF2 beautifully (as it should). Also took the plunge and got a monitor. Originally I had wanted to go with a dual monitor setup but I came across this 23" ASUS 5ms 1080p monitor for 139.99 plus a $15 MIR and couldnt resist.

Just need to get a new mouse and keyboard eventually as well as address some cable management.

Pardon the iPhone pic:
