    thanks........I'm looking for a case window etch right now, preferably either an nvidia or amd logo. I'd also in the market for some colored wire sleeving as well. Will post updated pics soon.

    Probable the best on this site.

    WOW and I don't mean World of War Craft. Nothing you can say bad about this one. Great mod and great specs. I gave you a 10!

    Nice

    Nice case and mod b, i would givt it 3 thumbs up, but the thing i hate about spending so much time fixin up cables is, when you have to take out a part or put in one, you gotta go through all the trouble again! otherwise sweet. How does the case do temp wise?
  7. noah111381 Guest


    Internal temp of the case overall is between 65-70 F.

    CPU Temp Idle: 34 C

    MB Tem Idle: 33 C

    So overall its a pretty cool system, does git slighly hotter under full load

    That's awsome! And good work on those cables!

    Hey, one question:

    When you have both cards running in SLi, do you have the option to use 4 monitors, or does the second card just act as a drone? And what are the two cards running at? 2x 8 on the pcie slots? Sorry, i'm just very curious!

    What benchmark scores can you get with that?

    The next thing you need to do is get a decent cpu cooler and start overclocking! Nah, just kidding =P

    Nice setup noah, you can do a little better with the cable management, maybe a cpu cooler. Other then that it looks great!
  10. noah111381 Guest


    Both cards run at 8x PCI Express, Asus did release an updated version of my board to run both cards at 16x. It's the A8N32 Premium and you can find it on newegg. To be honest I haven't really done any benchmarking, but my system is only used to play games (use my powerbook for all other work). As for 4 monitors it may be possible, but i've honestly never looked into it. I can run all current games with setting maxed out and no hiccups or problems.

    Currently playing: World of Warcraft and F.E.A.R.

    I ordered a UV Green nvidia case window etch for the side panel today, and I plan on cleaning up the cables coming off the PSU once that comes in. Hopefully hiding them up in the bay underneath the dvd rom drive. Will post updated pics once complete.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    That's cool

    That good you can keep the temp so low. Sad thing for me, I think i gonna have to put in AC to keep my pc cool, living in the caribbean the temp inside the case hits 34C, processor goes as high as 43C, any more fans and I gonna sound like a plane. I gonna take some pics and post soon tho.
