Those are some nice fans!!! i have to break down and buy 6 110CFM fans for my Rads when i can afford it.
Check out my Vantage run with physx
Well hers my new box a stuff
old cramped box
New RV02 desk hog
it was a bit of a to get going the power and reset switches didn't work properly and the HDD LED didn't go either
dude that is pretty slick im kinda jealous nice lines
so which 5850 from newegg going to order tonight was looking at the vaporx
im trying to score 4 reference 5850s for cheap.
Took the mesh grill off the side 120mm it made my case sound like a wind tunnel as the fan was trying to suck in too much air. I'm going to replace it with a black 120mm grill soon. So one of my cats doesn't choose to stick a paw in it. (Although I'm pretty sure only one is dumb enough to do such.)
I know, it's on the floor for now, but I put a board under it so it won't suck in as much carpet fibers into the PSU. (The 140mm fan has a filter.)
I get my new corner desk on Saturday.
It's not so much the sitting it on carpet that's the problem it's people / pets walking by it that'll kick up the dust that'll be sucked into it but as you say it's only short term
well decided to snap a few more pics to practice my crappy ass photography skills.. here goes nuffin, whatcha think??
Thats strange, you got a CM690, but it came in a CM Centurion case....
LOL that's hilarious, you are sooooo funny.... do i need to put the dogtags up again...
Great looking rig bro
I got my bolt kit for my NB Block!!!! took swiftech 3 weeks to finally respond to my countless emails and since the lack of communication they sent out a bolt kit priority and i got it yesterday. I might install today if i get some time to run to the hardware store for some more tubing.
when i eventually run into money ill have a nice rig like all these on here, oh well untill then...
Some amazing rings btw guys
No, they just sent the side window and new fans in that box.
For a moment I thought they had sent me a case when the UPS guy first showed up.
Edit- Moved my "High Performance" 120mm fan to the back of the the case for exhaust, as an intake fan it works great, until you want to put a grill of any kind in front of it and it makes the sound like you left a car window barely open at 60MPH.
Nice management, oh wait...... is that IDE?! NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! -100001 Someone needs a 2010 update to sata throughout. Geeesh!
Eh. I keep the IDE cable around for formatting old drives/one of my 160GB drives is IDE.
I need to order new hard drives, but as I just moved recently... I've been lazy about it.
I was kidding so no offense, but IDE has plagued motherboards for too long.
I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm just saying why I'm using something so "outdated".
Ok, so I finally finished the last parts of cutting into my case. First I cut out the back fan gill for improved airflow and noise. I also added some new stuff and gave Freeman's Box a nice upgrade.
Next I cut out the bottom hole so I could flip the psu (I've been wanting to do this for a long time!).
Do you see the face?
I installed an Aerocool Touch 2000 to keep the noise down while my women is home because she is always nagging about the computer being to loud, then crank them up for gaming and benching.
I added another GTX 285 and cleaned up my cable management. So what you do ya guys think?
If your woman thinks your PC's too loud, she should vacuum more often
Anyway, a little twist here:
My 360 ATM
Works here, but I'm logged in on GN... This helps
I added a 80mm fan right there and did the same wiring jig. Helped pull cool air in to the cpu's heatsink, and then out the back.
Nice little mod, but that plastic exterior is damn hard. Needed to break out the dremel.
