...and he believes he should have been able to do more. This soldier really and truly deserves the medal. Comment on the military.com article says it all:


Sgt. Meyer, you did not let your brothers down. You allow them to rest in peace by bringing them home to their families rather than being given up to the enemy. Well done Marine.

Yeah their very similar. HAF X has native front panel USB ports, a duct for cooling graphics cards and a little cooling support and XL-ATX compatibility with 9 PCI slots. The difference is marginal and i honestly think both are quality cases.

Unboxing the H80, i was happy to see that they included 2 fans, unlike previous editions that supported 2 but only came with 1.

I5 2500k processor with Intel's stock heat sink

Here's the ending to my story.

After getting in game and bf3 for a, while the card would not show any display after crashing while watching a video. I would get past POST and then the starting windows screen would show and then nothing. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers fully and using different versions and nothing seemed to fix the problem, the card worked fine in safemode but would not work with the drivers. As a last ditch effort i took my card out and placed in back in again and like magic it started working, it was really odd.

So here the last few pictures of my build.

The motherboard was definitely as beastly as expected
Messy Build area = Good build
In the PC world size matters, here is a comparison of the old and the new.

All in all it was a great experience, and i definitely learnt a lot. Would i build again?, even though i had a lot of trouble and my motherboard travelled over 40000 km's it was a lot of fun and i got exactly what i wanted for a great price.

Also here is a list of all the parts i used
