Pictures Part 3 - The System

If you're a fan of the green, then this certainly is the case for you. We're having a change of tack today and running with a water-cooled setup courtesy of SpecialTech

It's so nice to be able to put together a rig that isn't reliant upon blue or red for the colour scheme. Kudos to the current manufacturers for giving a full choice to consumers of the main three colours.

A Mushkin PSU is supplying our power today, with a lovely green LED fan that accentuates the look of the whole system.

RAM is provided by the Corsair Vengeance. The design of the Vengeance heatsink really matches the Military theme of the Assassin motherboard.

Performance is provided by two Zotac GTX580s which will give more than enough oomph for anything we desire.

Of course as cool as it looks off, turned on is where the real lush factor comes into play.

Let's turn the lights off and the system on.

Great review, nice to see x58 stuff. I'm sick to death of seeing sandy bridge reviews and all its problems. Not sure about the price though seen it on various sites for around £450. Looking forward to seeing reviews of the cheaper Sniper & Guerilla boards.

Love the Assassin build videos watched them all multiple timesQuote

The board is immense so the price fits it quite right. I would have anything against if it would be cheaper so I could replace my ep43 ds3l with it Quote

Looks fantastic.

As for P67, it's still a viable option for noobs, I hope. Especially if we don't use the S2 ports.Quote

Silly Magazine heatsink (IMHO) or not, this board is indeed a beast and well worth the money, if you can afford it

I missed out on X58 and went strait from 775 and P45 to P67 and 1155 but if I hadn't done that I probably would have gone for this board.Quote
