    I was surprised that the board fit, but it required very little modification. (Had to modify height of the standoffs so the motherboard wouldn't bow). Otherwise it just required many zip ties and lots of patience.
    Interesting, so BOINC seems similar to folding, but it seems that BOINC deals with many more different kinds of diseases?

    Oah, thats a great way to make a build with the SR2!
    this Thing has the feeling of a Warmachine, the Ram looking like Tank threads!

    I like the plain, unpainted metal of the Case and the Board cooler, in Combination with the matte black of the corsair h5o´s, the Board and the Ram... only the cooler of the VGA is too brightly colored, bright red, instead of wine red or black, the orange PSU sticker, and the red tape that ties together those 2 fans at the bottom look slightly out of place ;)...very good build, i really like it! :D

    As said,the crunching team would be lucky, to greet you as a new member! We may not be many, but we crunch with heart ;)

    Thanks. I just got this major upgrade last week. I figure I'll get everything running and installed and then work on the aesthetics of the case and build as a whole. As for the PSU, a new one will be of order soon enough, especially since the corsair 750tx has an unbelievably huge amount of wires, and I will most likely need it if I am to do some overclocking. The red tape, I dunno about that, it was mostly to seal the shroud which I made for the h50's, but its definitely an improvement. Before this, it was a disaster of cables. :cool:

    I'm not sure if anyone can see but I actually used my old laptop HD and it works fine, and it saved me some money.

    Finished the mini p180 silent build.
    - All fans undervolted
    - CPU and exhaust fans temp controlled by MB CPU temp.
    - Intake 32MM SilenX fans undervolted to 880 RPM.
    - Gelid ICY vision undervolted to something inaudible.
    - Loudest thing in there is the corsair fan, which isnt super loud but might be modded out soon.

    Like this build, think im gonna keep this case for a while.

    Has the nice clean look of a new build. How long until you have to do something of a major dusting?

    Great setup, but for that much money and using SLI, you should've went i7. nVidia chipsets aren't as good as the AMD chipsets on the AMD side, and Phenom x6 performs the same as i7 clock for clock.

    wait what? maybe I'm misunderstanding but core for core i7 is much better, but I assume you mean a 6 core PX6 @ 3ghz performs like a 4 core HT i7 @ 3ghz, that seems about right, except for that in gaming practically squat uses 6 cores, making the i7 the better choice for gaming anyway (as per core speed matters more), and for superior scaling of multiple cards.

    Problem is, is that the X6 goes toe to toe price wise with the i5 quad so you don't get the help (if there is any) of HT in the same price range from Intel.

    Yeah, meant the quads, not the hex core i7's.

    1090t is in the same price range as i7 860 and 870.
