    Hi peeps,

    Thought I'd instroduce myself as I've already made a couple of posts and it would be rude of me to not even say hello properly.

    my name is Tom, I was a service technician at a large injection moulding company and mainly worked on repairing electrical, electronic and hydraulic faults on industrial robots and injection moulding presses. Nowadays I decided a cleaner career was in order so I became a train driver then instructor and electronics is just a hobby for me now mostly.

    Spend a lot of time doing odd projects here and there, latest of which (not overly electronics) was a watercooled i5 PC build with my own PIC temperature controlled PWM fan controllers.

    Anyways, great site and I'm hoping to learn a lot :)

    Cheers

    well I did post a link to the build-log however my post was marked as to be moderated and when its appeared the link has been removed.

    I'll attach a couple of pics instead

    Its an i5 3570K with an XSPC Raystorm bock, Asus P8Z77V board with 8 gig Corsair Vengeance, 2 EVGA GTX660SC 2GB cards in SLi with EK waterblocks
    1000w OCZ psu with individually braided wiring (took weeks and lots of frustration). Samsung 120GB sata3 SSD, WD caviar black 1TB sata 3 HDD. Heavily tweaked TJ07 case with lots of custom metalwork. 480mm Radiator and Laing DDC3 pump

    How does your pc perform? Played Crysis3? probably eats it alive.
    Unigine benchmark? have you run it?

    To be honest mate I havnt really tried gaming heavily on it yet, only finished it a few weeks back so i'm still experimenting at getting the PWM fan speeds vs measured temperatures set up right in my PIC program for it. Ive had a light dabble at some black ops 2 and its performed well :)
