    i7 930/P6T SE/RX570
  1. No duties or taxes for me either. They just left it at my front door when I wasn't home, so I assume they didn't need to collect anything.
  2. I had some time today, so here it is after the hardware migration. I guess I should look into fan color coordination now that I have a glass side panel case... And being an older motherboard, I have to add that USB 3 expansion card at the bottom which messes up cable management a bit, but otherwise this case was so easy to build a system in. I love it!
  3. Wow, you guys weren't kidding when you said the prizes may arrive this week. I got home and saw this at my front door! I'll post another pic after I move my system into it, hopefully sometime next week. Hope all the other winners will get their prizes soon too. Thank you OCC and all the sponsors again!
  4. I think you'd have better audiophile feedback on forums like https://www.canuckaudiomart.com
  5. Just saw this thread. It looks like there are lots of us "old timers" here. I have a similar system with an i7-930, and it had a 5770 for the longest time. With my kids a little older, I finally get some time to myself, so I decided to upgrade the GPU to a RX570 this Christmas, catching a deal for it for $150 CAD (~$110 USD) for some light 1080p gaming. I can probably squeeze more frames with a newer CPU/mobo, but it seems good enough for my needs (occasional video editing for family videos, light gaming, internet/youtube, VPN to office for work, etc.). That said, if you haven't decided yet, the prices will likely come down more closer we get to the summer (though that's still a few months away) once Ryzen 3 hits.
  6. Holy... I can't believe I actually won the thing I needed most - the Fractal Design case. My Antec case had been failing me with its power button and reset button literally disintegrating into pieces. I guess I had been using the same case for 10+ years. I had made makeshift cardboard + duct tape buttons as a temporary measure. Thank you so much OCC! You guys are amazing. I can hardly wait for the case to arrive! And big congratulations to all the winners!
  7. I guess a motherboard change is considered too big a change, requiring a new OS license?
  8. I received my Noctua Chromax NF-F12 fan today! Thank you OCC and all the sponsors!
  9. How did your reinstall go? Any tips/pitfalls encountered for people wanting to do the same? I have a Win 10 machine too (upgraded for free from Windows 7). I'm thinking of getting a new mobo+CPU+RAM, but keeping all the other components (GPU, SSD, keyboard, mouse, monitor). Is there any chance I'd be able to keep using the same free Win 10 license?
  10. Nice review. Welcome back AMD! Personally I'm more in the market for their low-mid end offerings. Hope they deliver bang for the buck across the board even in their non-flagship lineup.
  11. Happy new year all. I think it's pretty clear now what Bosco is waiting for, with the latest CES teases happening
  12. Bought a clearance sale Logitech G710+ Cherry MX Brown keyboard. I definitely like these brown switches more than the reds, especially for typing.
