    I got mine from elitemotoring on ebay. I had it in a little over a week, although many say theirs arrived in just a few days.

    (I hope so... ;-) )

    Yo Mark!!

    Have you even slept since I last logged in like 3 weeks ago? Jeez, you are a busy boy!

    That red CF is so hot. Use it for something so I can check it out. I've been lazy on the comp stuff lately. Too much other stuff keeping me away. Then I come in here and realize I need to get moving again after seeing all your work.

    Maybe when winter sets in and I'm trapped indoors.

    Keep up the great work.

    Thanks for dropping by Bob....

    I just got an email from Elite Motoring that "supposedly" the red CF was damaged in transit and returned to them and they dont have any more...Sounds pretty dam fishy to me and what a waste of 10 days...

    ok now to find another vendor (that dosent suck) and red CF..

    :respect::respect:5000:respect::respect:

    Turns out they lied to me...Originally I ordered the red CF from "Compositeenvisions" and after a couple days they said they didnt have it in stock so I went to ebay and saw "elite motoring". they said they had 10 yards.
    After about 6 days I sent "EM" a message asking whats the status on the CF and they told me it had been shipped (lied)..

    Looks like "Compositeenvisions" and "Elite motors" are the same place (lol, same phone #) idiots.:mad:

    Congrats Craig on actually getting your orange CF from them.

    Oh damn... that's not good at all! I'm sorry to hear that Mark. I've got some more fiber to order, now I'm wondering if my delivery was just a lucky fluke!

    I hope it goes well for you Craig, I called them up and it sounds like a kid on the recorder (no one actually answered)
    Get as much orange as you can, if its in stock Im sure there wont be a prob..The sucky part to me was being lied to, it would have been better just to know from the first day they didnt have it rather than them making up a story..

    Jeez Mark, I ignore this thread for a few months hoping to come back and see your craziness finished, and you've gone and made it even crazier. :cry:

    Hehe, keep up the good work, I like the sounds of the red cf for sure.

    Thx somethingcool and glad u stopped by...

    OK CF will be here early next week, In the interest of keeping Wile E happy I switched GPUs again :laugh: (gonna be running a pair of XFX 4770s I just had to try a pair for myself and the fact they have Black PCB with red accents didnt hurt either)
    LOL, ZZF had them today for a couple hours before they ran out again so they will be here tomorrow.
    This will be fun to play with now as I have a pair of 9800GTs and the 4770s to compare SLI to Crossfire.
    I also have a pair of Velociraptors(the small ones without the huge heatsinks to run Raid0) and Il pick up a TB hdd for an external to put the anime and games on...

    I have been cat proofing my house (just got myself a cat to chat with so when my friends come over and see me talking to myself I can always say I was talking to the cat) and will get to the new PS design tomorrow.

    really nice choiche Mark on the xfx4770s, great cards that dont put out much heat. you can even overclock the hell out of them!

    Ok the 4770s showed up(I cant believe how hard it was to get them)
    [​IMG]
    Thx XFX for the black PCBs, red plugs and CF detail on the coolers...

    They are short like 8600GTs so I was thinking of making a pair of the XFX style alum rails on the edge and including the copper rods into them so there wont be any wiring at the usual end to get in the way
    [​IMG]
    the power will connect where the I/O panel is, and those insanely ugly blue/yellow fan wires need to be gone to

    and that yellow-green logo on the fan has to go. no yellow allowed! and better swap those blue jumpers on the mobo for black. or red (probably harder to get hold of). just being picky

    4770s FTW :rockout:

    I love the jumpers with the long tails. So much nicer to deal with in a cramped build.
