    Where do you suggest I place the bay res? :D There's no external 5,25" bay (only a used slimline bay for ODD) and both the internal 2,5" and 3,5" bays are used :p

    If I were to cool this with water, I'd use a single 120mm rad and a Laing 350/355 with res top. That *might* be enough for a PII X3 720 and a 5770 :pimp:

    That would mean I'd have to move the 3,5" HDD somewhere, and I have no idea yet on where that could go...

    @Fog you sure that's (3,648 x 2,736 pixels) freaking big enough not everyone who views this thread has an Unlimited/250GB cap anything less than 2mp is fine anything over that is just a waste of time and bandwidth

    I do know that but that's still no reason for the huge size shit took me nearly 5mins to wait for it to D/L where as all the other pics on this page were down in secs and look just as great at 1/2 the res

    I'm not saying it aint a nice piece of kit it is a very nice bit of kit indeed just down size the pic

    Those are some awesome shots. What are you doing/using for lighting? Whenever I get down to that scale it becomes difficult to get the right exposure.

    Yes you need a lot of light going really close, since you need to increase the F number for enought DOF, I sometimes use F 22-32 if needed, but only where I can get enough light . I'm using a Nikon SB-600 flash paired up with a Nikon D90 + 100mm Tokina Macro lense.
    If you don't get enough light try taking pictures outside using sunlight, since artificial light (light bulbs and such, I'm not talking about flash) don't produce nearly as much light, even on a cloudy day :)
    Hope this helps somehow ;)

    If you cant add more light, try using what you got better: reflectors :)

    Adding a reflector can pinpoint where you want light.

    I like to have just enough DOF for my shots, sometimes just under looks nice. But upclose macro shots defenately need as much depth as possible.

    Similar setup here :rockout:, D80 with nikkor 105mm and also a SB600 (but can't use it for macro since I get shadow from the lens with the flash). But daylight sounds like a great idea, never tried that. Thanks for the tip buddy, once I'm back from holiday may take some pics of upcoming rig with that in mind :toast:

    That's a good idea! :toast:

    Don't forget, if you are in a room, just point the flash upwards and bounce the light from the ceiling (that's what I do when I don't use a diffuser for flash or my macro flash), or any other direction so it lights up your object. That way you don't get shades from the lens and the light is much much better.

    I don't see a problem with it. This isn't exactly a dial up friendly thread to begin with.

    TBH I rarely check the images full-size, partly because their automatically downsized version is often good enough and partly because the pics else don't fit onto my screen.
    The spilling of bandwidth is not really troublesome with my awesome connection, yet it may be a waste server wise. And indeed it is not quite a 56K/ISDN friendly thread (should be warned for in the topic title though, IMO).

    I think the server has enough bandwidth that this wouldn't have a noticeable impact.

    If your connection's too slow, just enable the downsized pictures. They don't really look any worse, and you can always click to show the full image. Most people on TPU have enough bandwidth, so I don't really think this is a valid concern.
