Got the XSPC Delta V3 on the CPU, works better than the Swifty APPOGEE GTZ by a degree or so and I also have a XSPC Razor full coverage GPU block for the other 4870.

Most of what I have is review samples from one web site or another...........so actual cash outlay really isn't all that much................. :mrgreen:

It's not as easy as it sounds, it takes a lot of time and hard work to do it correctly.

All my old gear gets passed down to either my son or my wife and maybe some gets sold cheap to good friends if they are in need of a upgrade.

Not to mention Bio has been working on the "Monster rig" for almost four years now and it is the most viewed thread on this forum so getting him to review something for you actually has some value to the vendor as apposed just anyone writing a review based on the 2 or three CPU's they may have used. Its not as IF Bio just " gets lucky ".

Having seen the box in person I have to say it's very well put together. Bio's a heck of a guy.
