    Well that's why I said new or even used. They typically go higher than that used. You can find used 5770's for $100 or so. Not saying the 280 is a bad card, just not the card to compare it with.

    :rockout: Awesome bro, can't wait till you assemble that thing.

    Nope. The top rad is a Koolance 2x140 and then I've squeezed in a 120mmx55mm (thick) rad below the drives. :D

    Glad ya liking it so far ckn!

    Got a couple more updates of the rig.

    Cable management, always a pain to deal with, but also, always worth it.

    I hate saying I dont like something in another guys rig...but I dont like the 'horse shoe'.

    I think if your going the full mile and cooling your MOSFET's you should do all in your power to show it off...that tube blocks the view and makes it look worse.

    Personally, I'd use some Bitspower 90 degree fittings to get the tube to lay 'flat' and show off some more of that sexy block. :toast:


    I hope you dont take this the wrong way. :)

    No offense taken, I agree with you! I need 90 degree fittings because this tubing kinks fairly easy. I will finish up the rest of the loop when everything else arrives and see how much extra tubing I have left before I attempt a better method with the current fittings. The ones that are installed now are 45 degree fittings.

    I meant 90 fittings, I just messed up my brain again with a long session on some herbal products. :roll:


    Either way, I'd look sexy with new fittings....maybe some black Bitspowers instead of the usual colours? :)

    johnny - were is your fans on your top RAD? see i have a NZXT M59 and i have to have the rad and fans out side of the case due to the motherboard being so close to the top of the case.

    A lot of it has to do with the thickness of the radiator used. I searched around for a while before going with the Koolance 2x140 rad. I wanted the biggest rad that would fit without hindering the MOSFET area. The case you have definitely seems smaller inside compared to the Tempest/Tempest EVO.

    warning, many pics!

    took some time because there was a minor problem

    [​IMG]

    there is actually a lot of room on the backside for cables, the 24pin cable fits there without problems

    [​IMG]

    see something strange about this?
    [​IMG]

    i had to move the top fan to the right because of the 8pin
    [​IMG]

    and YES i KNOW its IDE HD's, but my Raptor AND my 750gig storage drive took a dumb on me:cry: so now i have to wait a month or so for the rma to be done

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and my current desk at my girlfriends house :cool: stole her 32" full HD tv to use for my rig :rockout:
    [​IMG]

    this little feature is great, a hot swap docking station on the top :rockout:

    [​IMG]

    hope you enjoyed it, i did :D
