    Thanks! :)

    I've heard of it, but never tried it before. Is it easy to set up?

    Oh yes it's very easy. Check out our folding@home section here. Your rig would score big :) Post in our official F@H thread and everyone will help you. It's a great community here!

    Made some chages:

    Switched out my Sabertooth with a Rampage III Extreme (w/Koolance water block).
    Swithched out my i7 920 for a i7 970.
    Switched out my OCZ Gold 1600 ram for the Patriot Viper Extreme 2000.

    Wasn't sure at first which loop to add the motherboard block to but I decided to go with the GPU loop. As they are more restrictive already I thought that adding the motherboard block would't effect it as much. I have seen an increase in my GPU's at idle and load by about 6c.

    The setup I use for 99%+ of my work. Either in this configuration (at the desk w/ an external monitor) on on the go. The gummy M$ keyboard & mouse are going to be replaced with real models as soon as I decide on what. Notice the ghetto surround-sound setup :D

    Other than my poor photography skills, I think this speaks for itself. Who wouldn't want a W series Thinkpad? :)

    Yep. I've had practically nothing but Thinkpads for years, and for good reason. They're very durable, I love the keyboards, the "red dot" mouse is unmatched, and I can get an employee discount. Hard to beat that.

    That's a Feser Monsta Lite Xchanger radiator right? How do you like it? I love the idea on mounting 140m or 120m fans and also the fitting option, but I haven't heard much about Feser Rads lately.

    Oh and i was moving one of my cathadoes the other day, and the bottom plastic piece managed to pop off. Now the light just barely lights up and hardly put's off any light :( Oh well. Time to get some new cathadoes! Im not sure about which color though :( I don't mind changing LED's on my case either. So for all you out there, what should i change my case color too?

    Red? Nah too over used. Blue? Sick of it and also widely use. Orange? Too bright, and t77 has that going. Green? Don't see this one very often and it would look sick. Only thing though, it would look terrible with my ram and hardware :mad: White? Im thinking that's what im gonna have to go with for cathadoes.

    Just replace the LED's in them for white ones, just make sure the LED is white and not those crap pale blue looking ones and you'll be all good

    Or just buy all new xiggy fan's that have the white leds :D Would all white look good though, with white fan's and cathadoes? I like the light the white cathadoes give off a lot. Honestly LED fan's aren't something i need to have either. I have 1 led fan at the moment. Id rather get cheap high speed yate's with white cathadoes and paint the fan blades white with black frames.

    Yate's are cheap and work amazingly well. With a shot of some paint i think they would look good.

    Hmm i actually have some of this UV green. It looks almost exactly like the green sleeving from MDPC. I really want a black and green setup. Maybe i just need to sell this mobo and RAM once gigabyte releases there new 1366 boards and ill pick up the new green and black one and some black mushkin ram.
