    Mate thankyou for paying VAT on this stuff, you've probably singlehandedly paid for a week of me doing nights in the NHS. Enjoy the new beast.

    Is that an E26 lampholder?
    If so just be careful they are not rated for use over here and they have no BS number so technically illegal to use in the UK as there is also no CE certification for these to be use din the UK.

    Anyway back to the build looks nice wish i had the funds for this :)

    Need to see outcome of the radiator fan screws fiasco (Gigabyte didnt put enough in the AIO box...) before I hook the AIO onto the CPU. Then its a case of PSU in and hooking everything up/cable managment with the GPU coming in the next few days.

    TRX40 manufacture has cut costs down, so xtreme is pretty much an EOL product. unless they roll out Version 1.1, which wouldnt surprise me along with the rest of the range


    POWER!
