    Hey guys, I haven't posted in a while but here are some updates to Pegasus! HARDWARE CPU: Xeon W3520 Mobo: Asus Rampage II Extreme Ram: Crucial Ballistix Tracers (Blue) 3x2gb 1600mhz GFX: GTX285 x2 SLI Sound: Creative X-fi Xtremegamer Fatal1ty PSU: Corsair HX1000 Fans: AC Ryan UV Red 120mm and 92mm Fan controllers: Scythe Kama Master 3.5” 2 channel and Vantec Nexus 3.5” 3 channel. Lighting: AC Ryan UV cold cathodes, and a paid of cold cathodes from Jaycar ;) So here are some ALMOST finished pics. When I have finished the last little bit of sleeving that is required (just waiting on some sleeving from MurderMod), then I will put up some better photos. These ones just taken with my crappy point and shoot, and so they're not very impressive. But you can at least see the layout, and some close ups of the hardware. :) Enjoy! I removed all the little backplates from my cards and got them and my aero-slots powdercoated to match the interior of the case. Now it looks really attractive from the back as well! Thanks for looking guys! :D

    Hey guys, here are some bad photos of what I've got done to my PSU and radiators. Couldn't get the rads powdercoated, so I decided to make them into a bit of a feature instead :) Looks AWESOME. The guy who did it for me is James from Creative Works. He did a fantastic job as you can see! Will try to get some better photos tomorrow. Apparently some of the paint is UV active, should look nice under my UV CCFLs. PS... On track for finishing TOMORROW time permitting (hopefully no hiccups).

    Yeh, thanks for advertising that mate. Also that isn't WHY I posted this here, if you notice the dates, I posted it here at the exact same time I posted it there. I posted it here so I could share my build with different people. Some people....
  11. The Xeon uses less volts and runs COOLER, the thread is incorrect. Heat is related directly to volts. More volts = hotter chip. I'm getting a Xeon for sure, it's a better binned chip, and more likely to overclock further. Oh but on Asus boards some things such as ram dividers are locked, this will likely be fixed in the next bios update, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yeh I'm thinking of just leaving it, it's not that hideously noticeable anyway. Thats what I get for having a friend nickel plate it for free. :P

    WHEN it is finished, I will add up all the invoices I've got lol. I am sure to be saddened and dismayed.

    True :) And they turned out well even if they couldn't get the grade of aluminium that was ideal. I have to say, it's been so much fun doing this mod, and hopefully will continue to be after I start putting everything together :)
