    hells yeah. i wanted to keep the stock backplate, so i used zip ties to hold it on as well (for protection of the back of the card, as opposed to cooling)

    There is acrylic base and enamel base. Most likely any paint on your case would be enamel if that is the case you cannot paint acrylic over the top. It would need to go back to bare metal. But if your mate is a panel beater spray painter hopefully he uses 2 pack which is enamel. :D

    dunno, i assume lots :p


    main advantage was noise, while the reference cooler didnt have much in the way of wind noise, it DID have an annoying rattle at anything but the slowest speed.

    Is this necessary Mussels because in your system specs its written that you keep the card at stock clocks? Anyway i like it

    My HIS 5870 only goes up to 900 core :(... but its perfect I guess since its the most stable clocks my 5970 can get to without the VRMs reaching 120 degrees

    ever tried putting a fan on the VRM sink maybe a little 50/60mm one it's surprising just much cooler they run with even a piffling little bit of air moving over te sink

    noise. rather, lack of.

    i'm getting tempted to BIOS mod it now with higher volts + CCC limits, there any easy walkthroughs?

    things i need to know:

    what tools we use for 5k cards
    how to rip my BIOS off my card for backup purposes (GPU-Z doesnt work?)

    edit: figured most of it out, only advanced questions left... will look for a thread on it

    Got this case for 40€ and I'm very happy with it. I like that you can install many fans and that it's all black.
    I will upgrade the cpu cooler in the near future, maybe a cm hyper 212+ or something.
    I have 2 more gb of Crucial BT ram on the way, will post pictures soon.

    Looks good man. I'm thinking of getting a couple more of those B&W NZXT fans (like the one on the back) to stick in the top two spots in my Gamma. They're really quiet, move a lot of air, and cheap.

    Got my new Mobo yesterday. I worked a long day only to come home and install stuff in my PC, so please forgive the poor cable management.

    ["spoiler"] Your text here. ["/spoiler"] Except without the quotations.


    I'm thinking some carbon fiber tape for my case would look better on the inside than some plan old black paint that will chip.
