White Lightning - Corsair and MSi Build

So i got the bug about 18 months ago, but my first build although more than respectable but was done on a tight budget. I had spent out on the key components, my MSi/Corsair Seahawk graphics card.

This then made me want to build a PC surrounding these two brands. Corsair dominated and now you can truly say that im a bit of a fan, hence the display cabinet which i plan to do more with!
18 months down the line and ive finally build the machine i "wanted" This upgrade was mainly cosmetic but the difference is amazing and everyone that comes round always comments on it, even if they dont like PCs so i thought i would share it round and see what people thought!

Here the userbenchmark results, yes my system is overclocked.
