    cool lookin. Thats probably the first time i've seen a case that has everything going upwards. I've seen the 180degree flip but not 90, thats cool =D

    Well I had Tt Armor+ and that case was really "windy". Now after applying this TIM my CPU temp. is ~1-2c lower in idle ( the hottest core ) and like 4-5c in load. GPU temp. is actually a bit higher in idle but at least 5-6c lower in load. NB temp. is a bit higher, I think I should have applied more paste, DFI LP's heatsink doesn't fit well ..
    About the case cooling, well I don't know HDD's temps are the same ( 31c WD 500GB and 23c old a$$ Maxtor ) just like in Armor+.
    Those 180mm fans do a fair job tho I don't think that can keep up with 2x120mm that I had on the bottom of the Armor.
    And about that "turning the heat up" thing, well from what I can tell it's pretty much bullsh..

    @surrealX, it was ~200e

    I was really thinking about splurging on the Raven (which would suck since i already have a beefy as hell Cosmos). Interesting idea for how they had everything.... but i think it would have been better executed if they provided some form of 90-degree connector with the case, ESPECIALLY for DVI and/or VGA. Tends to be the most rigid cable connected to a computer besides the actual power cable. But i really do like the concept behind it. must make it kinda interesting to work with.... and it's sure as hell nice to look at.

    OCZ: At the bottom of the mobo.... is it just me, or is that metal banded wire protectors like you'd expect to find on a car or for a home heating system or somethin?

    That 24pin cable ? Well, that's my custom sleeve :p those are actually shower tubes, 6 wires in each tube.

    Anyhow, today I finished it all, added an 120mm to give it some airflow on the RAM - did lower the NB temp. for like 2c too.
    Added my cathodes, screwed down the mobo, MFC1+ is also in, painted the sticker on that 180mm fan ( to keep it all black ) and a few more thing that I just can't remember atm ..

    As you can see that white sticker doesn't stand out anymore :)

    Here are a few pictures of my new case and ever expanding upgrade cycle. It's a Custom Lian-Li A70 by Bill Owen aka MNPCTech.com.

    Damn, thats one hot rig.
    The inside is really neat and the paintjob is just insane.

    Neat job, but for me those GPU cooling solutions just take up to much room, ruins the overall look of the rig internals, for me anyway! Other than that, nice job:thumbup:

    that thing is ridiculously huge! also, i thought there was going to be some sort of simple testing methodology in that loooooooong vid.. but no, all they did was slob all over the carbon fiber panel and tell you that it has fins. you know.. for heat dissipation. -_-

    yeah.... that Monsta has been on FrozenCPU for MONTHS saying that it'll be available soon. maybe they should change it to "Available whenever we can get it".

    Here a few shots of my rig and computer desk. I built a custom side unit that is bolted to my Coolmaster case. I wanted to move the PSU and HDD out of the normal tower to provide better air flow and a cleaner look. I still have some finish work to do and re-paint the case. The system specs are to the left, and I am using a EVGA 9600gt SSC for a physx card. Even though GRID and COD4 do not support physx I noticed it made game play a lot smoother and did help GRID FPS, only at night for the Le mans race, not it drops to ~45 at night and stays at 60 no matter what during the day(vsync). Also I am running a modified 3way SLi bridge, it really helps in bench runs but I have not tested in games.

    not sure how I feel about that build, I respect the innovation and craftsmanship. But IMO having a dual side case without water cooling is just kind of silly. I understand budget issues, but down the road you should definitely consider water cooling.
