    I am not so much worried about cost, but weight and durability. I carry my PC all over the place for LANs on the weekend sometimes (few times a month). If its going to get messed up in transit, I would want to avoid it. In the future I will be switching to an ITX build to make it even more portable, so I dont think a full watercooling setup is for me, unless someone can share their experience with its durability in the car?

    Yeah, I've thought about it for a while, but never got around to testing it out. Now that I know there is a pretty large empty circle with the fan removed, it might be a good spot to see if the Corsair H50 fits there. It would only help cool the memory, mosfets and PCB temps that are in direct contact with the metal plate though. I doubt a stock H50 will be able to tame a 80*C GPU mwhaha, but worth a try.

    Well I had nothing to do and alot of extra fans
    I decided to move the radiator of my CoolIT ECO ACL to the front of my HAF 922 to see if I can get some cooler clean air.
    Having extra fans I pulled off the CoolIT PWM 1800rpm fan off my 5850 and put back on the radiator. I replaced it with two, yes two 120 orange XIGS: 1500rpm 61 cfm rating. I left another said XIG on the rad and one on the back and the 200mm black CM fan back on the top.
    Results a good I have gained I can say about 3 to 5 degrees cooling on the CPU. The double XIGS idle at 1100rpm giving the GPU is 35 to 36 degree temp. No stres test yet or attempts at cabling m. The HAF 922 is very roomy

    Note: one fan pulls air on to the cooling fins and the other extracts it. I am just testing here. So far soo good I have fans pushing air on to the card.

    @darrenj- I love the look of the Xig fans. They are my favorite. I'd love to replace all of my antec 1200 fans with them but I cant justify spending 100 bucks on fans :D.

    I originally replaced all my Antec 900 fans with the xigs I have now. It was well worth it. But I solld my Antec fans almost brand new.
    They push well and not so noisy. Noctuas aand scythe a better but no orange lights.

    **SLIGHT REPOST** --> Changes Ensue!

    I did a little bit of internal changes. I switched the fan from the Thermal Take ISGC-400 cooler to the back of the rig and I put the Antec 902 back case fan on the heatsink. Primarily because of the blue LED and the fact that it's just as quiet and it's a little better black/blue themed with the internals. It is also adjustable and holds the same temps (23 degrees C @ idle/43 degrees C @ load on Just Cause 2[Gaming not load benchmarking]).

    Then I cleaned up the inside a bit by hiding the wires a bit more. Did the Molex Power mod to allow a straight line of x3 HDDs hooked up since the original modular connections were really spaced out and upside down in the case (bad amount of wires sticking up)

    Also bought the 24-pin NZXT individually sleeved Mobo power extension. This went fairly nicely with the scheme. **I do need an extension for the 4-pin mobo connection as you can slightly see it snakes up the side of the mobo behind the graphics card.

    Running:
    -Athlon II x4 635 @ 3.4Ghz - Stable with Stock Voltage and low temps!
    -RocketFish 700watt PSU
    -Antec 902 Case
    -2x2gb G.Skill PC2-6400 Dual Channel Gaming RAM
    -Sapphire HD5830
    -x2 750GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
    -x1 750GB WD Green
    -MSI 770T-C45 AM2+/AM3 Mobo - Quite Nice and Cheap!
    -Rosewill USB 2.0 Wireless N Adapter
    -x4 Blue 6Gbps OKGEAR SATA Cables
    -Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1250 TV Tuner
    -Asus Super DL DVD-RW Drive
    -Thermaltake Silent Gaming ISGC-400 CPU Heatsink

    Just bought some LED strips online and going to line the left side and the bottom (out of site) to have some nice glow effect for the case.

    ^Sweet computers, as always. :D

    Stupid me I do not have a surge protecting power strip, the power surged a few days ago and killed my apevia 1100w power supply. I got a new corsair one to replace it...

    I would, but I have no money. :p

    Soon, probably around Q4 I'll be able to afford new GPU's. :)


    The 9600's are holding up surprisingly well in most games, I am mainly playing starcraft 2 currently and having no issues.
    Still, its always good to have more power.

    Ah, the day when I can play crysis on very high will be glorious... :nerd:

    ah, come on! Haha, you've been waiting so long now. I remember talking to you about getting new ones when we still thought it was going to be gtx 3--'s instead of the gtx 4--'s :wanker:

    Is there a guide any where to put LED light into fans? I seem my CM 200mm has the holes on the sides for the led bulbs already.

    Haha, I was finally able to afford a car, thats why. :p

    Until it runs on its own power, I will not be able to do much major upgrades to my PC. :(
