    Ok , I finally got them posting from Facebook but I could do with some tutoring on how to size the images. Smaller would be nicer :)

    This was you before you went water cooled. I can see where the benefit may start to kick in now, See my last stats- looking at 72 c at 4.5ghz under load

    don't forget you can take screenshots of the bios by pressing F12 and having a USB stick plugged in for it to save the images to :)

    I would love to but the other criteria is the stick has to be fat 32. would you believe my sticks are either bootable or 64GB ntfs with a whole load to transfer off prior to format.

    I am hoping eTeknix run a competition to win a usb stick...........Just kidding :D
    I have this thing about paying over the odds to a supermarket to get a usb 2 stick. I will order a usb 3 stick on line and do the bios pics when it gets here.

    Meanwhile here are 2pics of the LED kit that is as simple as plugging in the molex plug, remove the backing tape from the led strips and stick in your pc....Ultra easy !!
    search PC CASE RGB FLEXI LED STRIP COLOUR CHANGE LIGHT 2x30cm - TWICE AS BRIGHT!!
    In both images you see 1 kit on the right in a sealed bag, the other items are the contents of a kit.

    I won a Plextor 256 GB M6e m.2 SSD in a Facebook competition run by Plextor.
    It arrived today in a well packaged box.
    [​IMG]

    opened up it looks like this ..
    [​IMG]

    The small green warranty sticker is there to stop you stripping out the M.2 card from the Pcie carrier.

    [​IMG]

    It took moments to fit it ..
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So now Twinkle looks like this..
    [​IMG]

    I used Macrium reflect (free) to Clone my existing dual boot of windows 7 Professional and Windows 10 Technical preview from a 256 GB OCZ Vector SSD. It completed and was booting in 15 minutes !! I also use a Samsung Evo 750 GB SSD for games and a Western Digital Black 1TB mechanical drive for Office , music, pics and movies. I also use external drives for back ups etc.

    I noticed @xavilend had posted a picture of the wiring in the back of his pc and I decided to come clean and show mine.
    [​IMG]
    Not very pretty !! You can see my LED's here ^ as well.
    I know it looks messy but I spent a lot of time trying to keep things tidy.
    Would sleeving help this at all?
