Hey everyone! Just thought I would let you all know I have recently updated my RIG. Things are going well as I have replaced my power supply from a 750w BeQuiet! to a 1600W EVGA Supernova G2. I have also added another 2 graphics cards, giving me 3 x R9 290x in total! One of which is water-cooled the other 2 are a reference design, however I have ordered the brackets to allow for closed loop cooling on these as well.

With the addition of graphics cards came the addition of heat which i have helped try and solve by upgrading to a larger case with more airflow. I have gone from my Corsair Carbide 300r to a nice big CoolerMaster Haf X, with 3 x 200mm fans, 1 on the front, 1 at the top and 1 at the side. CPU water cooler mounted to read in a push pull configuration, water-cooled GPU is 'mounted' in the front, the radiator is in a pull configuration currently sat in the hard drive bay, this gets air from the front 200mm fan and is dragged through the rad my NZXTs 140mm fan.

I had one more upgrade which was more of an aesthetic more than anything, but i finally purchased a third Asus 247H Monitor to go in the middle as my AOC did not match in any way, via performance or bezel colour, so yeah, at least thats sorted!

I have also got another PC which i will be using as a rendering machine to save me requiring my main rig on all the time. This is a 6 core 12 thread Xeon X5670 on an LGA 1366 socket, with 48gb of ram and currently a GTX 760.  Hopefully this will be used to record to whilst i am streaming and can be left on uploading the youtube whilst i sleep and or get on with other things.

Anyways, thanks for reading and I will try to update more and more! Cyaa!
