    Yeah, plus backplate and cut-up stock vrm/ram cooler. Stiffens it up a good bit.

    80c after 10 minutes of OCCT 740 core, 29c idle. I believe stock can keep it under 90c at 100% fan speed but hardly practical with that noise level.

    Price drops of HD5 soon. I wasn't very happy with it in the first place so 8800GT will have to do for while. I am done 'beta testing' AMD WHQL drivers.

    I'm hearing more and more peeps making this statement in the last few months.....What is ATI/AMD doing to hose the drivers?...I use to run nothing but ATI/AMD hardware...never had 1/4 of the Issues I've seen posted....makes me really leery of switching platforms in the near future. :banghead:

    Flushed my loop last night, thought I'd take a few shots.. The picture doesn't do the Ultra Kaze fans any justice, they are thick. They make that 3/4" compression fitting look like a 1/2". I also have fan covers, cause I don't play with 2k-3k rpms and my fingers. Dust doesn't even stick to them :eek:

    Does anyone make a 360 shroud with an air filter? If not, someone should. It would be a life saver in between water flushes. :toast:

    Heh, I've never had any issues with drivers yet. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones. :)

    I dont see many people that have those rads with the barbs on either side, I love that idea. It seems to make more sense in many wc setups, is there a reason why I dont see people using those types of rad? All I ever see is both barbs on one side.

    Lately I have been very interested in the 800D case, can you post a full shot of yours? pleeeease:D

    I will take some later in the day when the lighting is better. I personally wold get a 700D. NewEgg had them a week ago with a 650w psu and free shipping for $165 after MIR. The rad is a BlackIce Xtreme III. Some people don't like the barb layout, I do.. I think BlackIce is a VERY good product.

    Yeah I saw that deal on the 700D, but I'm a sucker for windows.:D That rad you have is perfect, left side to the cpu and right side to the bay res, I was just wondering if there was a performance difference as compared to the rads with both barbs on one side? If not, then that's cool!:cool:

    Usually, single pass radiators (barbs on different sides) and dual pass radiators (barbs on one side) don't have that much of a real-world performance difference.

    *these are norms. there are some dual pass rads with barbs on different sides, vise versa*

    i don't use the single pass rads because i found their performance to be subpar to the dual pass rads. i'm kinda a water cooling nub though...

    i have the 800d and it is epic, here is a shot for you. The case has changed a lot, i'll get a newer pic up later

    I did read before I got my 800D that they thought of everything. They did almost. When I first got the case, I put my rig in on air. Then when my new 655 and 470 block came in I went back to all water. You know how you get into a build and there are always screws you need and odds and ends.. There were rad screws, fan screws, through fan screws, fan gaskets, air filters.. you name it you got two of them.. I couldn't believe it. Everything I totally needed was already included.. A very large need for a case of this size is a fan controller. I use one on my rad, but if I were on air It would be a must. I got one with a card reader so it's dope. :pimp:

    Well thanks for the mini review;) All the more reason I'm considering this case over the Haf-X. My only concern is the actual airflow? Since there are no fans on the side front panel and this restrictions of air coming from the bottom of the case. What were the temps like when you were running air coolers?
