Been a while since I had new gear to play with and had the time away from work to give the new gear some attention
  • Intel Core i7 2600K L038A660
  • Gigabyte P67A-UD7

First pairing will be with 256GB Crucial RealSSD C300 on Marvel SATA 6G port 6 and 2x2GB A-Data 2000X DDR3-2000Mhz 9-9-9-24 memory modules, pretty old kits from Elpida BBSE days.
