    Right now, the VR HDD you see in the pic. is @ 26c :D also you see that the fans are moved back further, and it still is cold as hell (for a velociraptor)

    Thanks for the Link JM.. I'm not going to use their hdd mod. I want to have it just throwing air towards the system. Those 280's like to get toasty! lol...

    I might grab that.. Price is a killer! lol. Going to be looking around.. Got a lot of things coming in the next few weeks, and gotta get the psu thing going on..

    As for the res... I'm going to go hunting! Im hunting a Racin' legend! :roll:

    All right... It's now 11pm, and my wallet is closed for the night!

    recap on the day of ordering...

    Mountain Mods
    Duel Bay drive cover with special etching
    Fan screws,
    Case screws,
    Black PCI slot screws

    Jab-tech
    10 Scythe 110cfm fans
    9 fan covers
    3 white led lights

    Performance PC
    2- 6pin uv blue connectors
    4- 8pin uv blue connectors
    1- PSU Uv replacement connectors
    heat shrink for wiring up the the fans together
    3 led uv lights


    So, now, here is what I'm thinking. I'm going to use the buttons on the case to turn on and off the leds from the mobo tray. One for white, and the other for uv.. Should make it look nice. Place the UV in the places around the mobo that will show off the tubing, and the connectors..

    Well, that's it so far.. more thinking and more doing! can't wait to get it all together! Woot Woot!

    Thanks. I'm going to try and do it to it!

    I'm going to do throw them in the bay drives. That way I don't have to use but one cord that goes straight there.. as for the hardware to mount them.. Still up in the air. I'll get that when i get my rad and so forth..

    this thread is growing fast...
    some sweet hardware involved, always attracts curious modders and Ocers...


    btw those Scythe 110cfm fans will create a wind blast! I only use 6 and at full speed I dry my hair on them!!!:D


    seriously, now, I cannot wait to see the Duel Bay drive cover with special etching! :cool:

    Yeah, 9 of these babies [Scythe Slip streams] will be crazy!

    As for the etching of the bay... All my orders have been shipped out.. So, I threw the owner at Mountain Mods a e mail asking if it got the etching. I sent the picture to their support site like it asked.. Just can't believe it would all be done that fast.. Not, that I don't believe in his work. I just wanna make sure. I love Mountain Mods, and can't wait for it to all come!

    So, I should be that I get everything I ordered by the end of the week. Friday at the latest!

    Man, I don't want to take apart the PSU! lol.. But, gotta do it to it! I'll still keep the mock set up in there (hardware wise) that way I can tell what's going on.. But, i'll be throwing the Corsair in the Pinnacle case... I'm running everything at stock on my system because... All I do is web surf and some art.. why have it at 4.2-4.5ghz just for little use? But, once it's ALL in there! Boom!

    So, once I get the e mail back talking about the bay etch, i'll go and throw the Order together for the window etching!! :rockout:

    I am really interested in how the etching goes for you. I may try it sometime and have no clue where to begin.
