Newegg Tv: Supreme Combo Ares Part Ii - The Build

Published on Aug. 11, 2010 Newegg Supreme Combo - Ares Limited Edition Watch as Paul and Matt take on the Supreme Combo Ares Edition Build -- an obscene amount of hardware, there can be no doubt. The build was not without its share of quirks, as it was quickly realized that the original CPU cooler (the Noctua NH-D14) would not fit due to the heat spreaders on the selected Corsair Dominator GT memory. Will Paul and Matt be able to overcome the obstacles? Will the Supreme Combo Ares boot up on the first try? Did they use too much thermal paste? Watch and find out!
