    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Damn TRWOV, I have the perfect case for a Nvidia build and didn't even think of it. I have one of these with one of my crunchers housed in it. Linky to case

    Here is a pic of mine

    Finished the top blower hole:

    I messed up with the top-left screw hole and for that reason the fan grill is off-center. I tried to set it right by force but couldn't; I think I'm going to cut that corner of the fan grill to center it.

    Now I just need some u-channel molding.



    Also doing some color tests:

    Honestly, I don't really like either one. The left one is neon green and the right one is leaf green. Something in-between would be perfect but there's not much to choose from in terms of green shades. Red, blue and yellow there are hundreds but green only these two.

    Dupont has only two green shades too: http://www2.dupont.com/DPC_Refinish/es_MX/assets/pdf/Cromacryl.pdf

    Duplicolor isn't any better: http://www.duplicolor.com/products/premiumEnamel/

    and I don't know where to get Krylon over here...

    The darker Dupont green with some chrome or white trim work might look pretty good together.... I would try that if that were my build and that was all I had to work with.

    I think I'm going to do this:

    Primer > White > Leaf green

    It should make the green a little lighter, shouldn't it?

    What brand this 7950GT is? The seller doesn't have any info on it

    The heatsink is the same as the Galaxy 7950GT but with a different sticker:

    EDIT: I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this one.

    EDTI 2: bought. :rockout: Hopefully it'll have the complete 7950 specs (550/700)

    It looks like it's an Nvidia branded card. I tried googling the part number, but nothing comes up.

    Not on the Comex brand. They carry grey and red primer. I could get flat white paint though, would work more or less the same.

    It's www.sibusa.com, seems to be the store that sold the card but there's no listing for the 7950GT anyway.

    Don't know yet. It's coming from the US so it'll take a little while.
