    This is my current rig.

    I had troubles fitting my 2 RAID 0 Arrays (4x80 GB drives), 2 optic drives (CD-RW, DVD-RW) and two PSU'u, 2 fan controllers and beside PSU, CPU and VGA fans, another 7x 80 mm, 2x 92 mm, 2x 40 mm ones. So i took two standard ATX cases bolted them together and made one hole between, so now i have a basement which holds the second PSU and storage. A lot of space was wasted so i have thrown inside my download and server machine which is running a 1.2 Ghz Celeron, 768 MB SDRam, 40 GB HDD's, ATi Radeon 9200 128 MB + it's PSU. So in other words its a kind of stack computing :roll: ohh.. and i do run 3x 600 VA UPS's for this contraption.

    maybe in inch or 2 but its not that you need to worry about it was igher and longer than a standard PS by like 10-15mm doesnt sound like alot but that takes a LONG time to file even with a dremel

    His current one can handle it. 150x 3 = 450w / 12 = 37.5A (150w = max power consumption of a 9800gtx) It probably won't even get that high.

    Dammit id love to see it with the i7 even though id love to see the Extreme 965 one im sure a few here will get em if they havnt already.

    The 2 260's would be cool though ive heard they scale pretty well.

    My setup.

    Painted the inside black. (not well. bad primer) rewired the GPU cooler to run off my fan controller, and replaced the ram chip heatsinks with Zalmans.

    Not a neat setup, but that's me.
