    Great guide!

    Sneeky, that 24pin looks very nice... I think you should get some PCI-E extensions in blue and white too. Would definitely flow well.

    have to spring for water first;)

    After I get a look at all that inside, I will definately be back for more of Crys1s' work. Very, very pleased. Shipped very well for something so unbreakable (loved it), got here in like 3-4 days from the time I dropped payment (what's not to love?), and it looks TEH AWESOME! (nuff said).:D

    Ugh, that gives me the jeepers. Too many bad memories of basic training :cry::ohwell::confused::confused:

    BTW, thanks for this really well put together guide. I have wanted to try this and this guide gave me plenty of confidence to actually do for my next build. Thanks!!!
