    Will do this in a bit, I have a few things that can't be interrupted loading right now.

    Also, for anyone wondering, I'm getting a WEI rating of 5.9 because of the HDD config I chose. I am HOPING to bench in 3DMark tonight on both stock RAM and the new HyperX RAM that I mentioned I have.

    I will definitely take some nice long exposures of the Black in a natural lighting so it does not destroy the look of the PC.

    As I said before I am not a PC Vantage guy. The first thing I will do when the SSD is ready to go is load this guy up with everything I can possibly throw at it.

    I figured:
    Crysis Original
    Crysis Warhead
    Crysis 2 (although seems like a bad benchmark at the moment with it only being DX9)
    Bad Company 2 (although we know it is going to eat it alive)
    Metro 2033

    Also I'll run the gaming Benches:
    Stalker COP
    Unigine Heaven
    RE5
    Lost Planet 2
    Devil May Cry 4
    Hawx 2

    And of course Doom II.....to test the pixels. :p

    Id also like to see some Metro 2033 results....in game bench or anything else to show how well these systems handle it....DOF enabled/disabled.....or just plain maxed out....its one beast of a game to use to test...at least I found it to be!

    Has anyone posted up any 2920xm figures yet....anywhere!.......

    So I calibrated my display last night (looks much nicer calibrated) and with the IGP running and half brightness + bluetooth, wireless and alienfx active, the system reported 3:50 mins of battery. While using the IGP, the fans are completely off and the system is not generating ANY noise. This should be great news for those that want to study in the library or some place quiet for an extended period on battery.

    Here's a picture of me playing Borderlands last night with a friend online. I had to use exposure compensation so the actual panel looks better in person. This is after calibrating the display:
