    They are pretty on the table even with the kiddo kicking it around they don't move. I need to pick up a newer ATi card to try out the multiscreen gaming.

    In other news got the chip up to 4ghz stable. Will be trying for a bit more later.

    What settings and voltages did you use? I have the same chip and haven't gotten it above 3.8.

    The cooling has some umph now...those are Nidec Beta V's which are about 255CFM...The center fans are hollow for shrouds. There are a couple other things done as well that you cannot see.

    6 Monthsish and thanks :) It's going to be in a case when I leave don't worry :p

    Got my other drives up and running

    Raid 0 on the pair of sammy 1TB F3's in red and 32GB STT UltraDrive ME's in blue. I assume the chipset is holding them back since they are quite a bit better in RA individual...

    Swapped in the GTX 470 instead of the GTX295's. Got tired of the bugginess.

    Is that giant thing attached to the side of it a vent of some sorts? I have been thinking about doing something like that for ages to get the heat out of the house.. Living in Florida with the heat makes for bad ambient temps, with current hardware running as hot as it does.. I'm talking not about the last pic you posted, but the one before that.. Black thing with white tape or something. Looks like an exhaust vent.
    Nice rig u got there though. :)

    Keep your head on a swivel Awall. ^^

    With the masking tape? I just have a pair of fans in push/pull the masking tape is around the 25mm fans I am using as a shroud to help seal up a little better to increase the static pressure.

    thanks btw :)
