    I caught that you had mentioned BBSE IC's....did you take the spreaders off? Mine seemed glued, even with the screws out:(

    No EK block here my friend, this is an XSPC FC.

    I had the EK 4870 FC but it wasnt quite as good as this block......now its sold any way. :)

    They look about the same, if it wasnt for the XSPC/EK logo's they would be sold as the same block lol

    na man its actually very clear, real nice shot, shame for the screen an keyboard in background, if it was just on your desk like that with the same lighting id say thats a real good shot

    no worries man i like the lighting allot gives it some mood :rockout:
    Maybe if you set the focus on a wider area so the whole card is in focus ive just noticed the bottom capacitor things are a very tad fuzzy, but still a great picture
    Edit: you must also have a decent camera coz normally in darker photos you get artifacts, which you dont have in that so....

    The power of chance. hehe. Sometimes a quick snapshot looks better than many planned things.

    The full-sized pic is a bit blurry, but scaled down it looks absolutely awesome.

    A relatively random shot of a Thermaltake 120mm rad. Antec spot cool lurking in the shadows and 8 gigs of Patriot DDR2 below it.
