    Looking good Tim. I'm going to try and hopefully remember to borrow my buddies SLR to take some nice shots of the rigs in their current status. Hopefully I don't forget.

    Why back to air?

    I can get a shot of mine when I get back home, right now it's my i7 860 @ 3.8ghz with the H50 and a 9600GT, although I'll be getting back my GTX260 before too long.

    i got tired of spending money on the water setup and i didn't like having to take care of it and worry about the rig while i'm out of town.
    atleast i know that the chance of both fans failing on the heatsink isn't that likely and if some how they do i still have the top one that is almost against the heatsink that will still keep it kinda cool.

    That makes sense. I guess the advantage of the H50 is it's no maintenance and I don't have to worry about it. And it was cheap.

    Enjoy the GTX460, that's what I'm planning on :)

    The GTX295s have a hell of a hard time folding. I'd rather have 2 GTX260s TBH

    What I've read is that frequently only 1 GPU works properly, so you might as well have a GTX275. So I'd get 260s or GX2s, both would be great

    Nice rigs guys!

    Here's my rig, i have another rig in the sig, and a presario m2000 laptop, but their too ancient to fold :eek: I fold on my sisters sony vaio as much as possible. It's got a i3 330m thats good for about 2k-2.5k ppd. Im only 16 so i think it's a decent start for my age :)

    Plus another 2.5k PPD from the laptop puts me at about 19k PPD :)

    Hmm, this thread has given me a couple of ideas to try fit more rigs in my tiny room.

    ATM, only folding on 480 of main rig:
    [​IMG]

    and new PS3:
    [​IMG]

    Once I get paid this month I will have my dedicated up and running. Might get some GTX570 to join or replace the 2x460's. Quite annoying having 20K+ PPD just in a corner there doing nothing :(

    Heat is a major problem though, so after seeing BUCK NASTY's arrangement I may take them out of the FT02's and put all the rigs on a shelving unit. Might use Dimastech Benchtables so I can go watercooling in summer too.
