    Greetings From Greece​


    Another journey begins for Barf (and as usual it starts when another project is in the works!). I seem to have a problem... I need two projects going on or else i get restless and start modding household items... you will soon see what i mean...

    Having not bought into the 1155 P67/Z68 chipset, i feel left out being stuck with an x58 board and i7 920 (3 years old almost), and as such i decided to buy myself a present:lol: (many presents to be honest).

    Sorry Nexxo,

    I thought pictures taken of the gear counted as a start. :/

    Beautiful photos! And if your chip overclocks like that, on that board and with good watercooling, it will go far!

    Just want to say thanks to Freddy from Highflow for making this possible!​

    Because i believe 1 picture = 1000 words, i will leave you with 24000 words :p

    My Motherboard put on her swimsuit... EK VRM block, XSPC Raystorm, and Bitspower Ram coolers... Sexy ;)
