Very happy with the system! The OCZ Vertex 2 Sandforce serving as my boot drive is insane!
Got a couple of upgrades
The EVGA 470GTX, XFI PCI-x and a Thermaltake Toughtpower 1200w are new to my system.
Some extra shots
This was my systerm before
How come you changed from blue to red coolant? Think the blue matches your components better... other than that, nice rig u got there
Can we get a wider shot to get a look at the psu cover? I love the idea.
Yeah I regretted the change after I did it but I didn't want to deal with it so i will change it back next time.
ill have to take one when my other half gets back on sunday with the camara so i can take a good photo with flash lol
nother little bit still lots to do need to shape it till its all blending in
Finaly gamming all 24/5 no DB!! no temps!! I can not hear it!!!!!!
there we are camera is back
That's a lot of foam.
3 packs went in to it
I haven't been reading up on this topic too much, does the foam help with airflow, or just hiding the inside of the case?
believe its for noise reduction ;P
edit: been updating my loop.
if only got 1 problem atm with my loop.
its taking verry long to bleed air out i cant put case on side the pump does't like it.
its relay for sound damper but with out the flash its all dark and clean and very silent my meter read's only 28.4Db
yeah I could of sprayed the case but I wanted to make it unique
what about the 5870s in game 2-3 houres?
Dont they start to heatup? and fan goes up?
funny that one the highest the cards have got with me are about 78oC max I have the G15 keyboard and the fans do go a little higher but 28 Db is at normal the 5870 are not loud at all and I do game allot too what ill do ill get a video with a mic and the Db meter on it playing battle field bad company 2 on line
have to add this there is that fan at the bottom that gives them 2 cards direct air from out side cold air from the bottom
doode, I broke one of my red Enermax fans by trying to take out the fan blade to clean. The PCB came apart where it was connected to the base...I then just took out the LED strip haha, I might use it for something, its pretty neat looking. So be extra careful when trying to pop out the fan blade!
