    it looks like its upside down, with the fan facing up... at least I hope it is, with the case being on the rug like that.

    Yeah it's great, I normally have it in my miniITX build but I wanted to try out some SLI action.

    It overclocks almost as good as the dual slot card. Runs about 10-15c hotter on average though at idle and about 10c hotter loaded.

    Nothing fancy, but I've just finished routing the cables in my case to clean up the mess a bit. Also routed the Power switch and LEDs to the front.

    before...

    IMO that looks very good given the IDE drive and the case you're working with :toast:

    I'd have routed the power cables on the other side of the cages but the other side panel is perma-mounted... some kinda cold weld or something... that case is proprietary as hell too, the board is held in by some kinda hooks.

    Yeah, reminds me of a Dell I had where the board was mounted strange as hell. And the PSU was suspended on hinges over the CPU...a disaster :(

    It's showing it's age now but 16 cores is still sweet. Probably cost you an arm and a leg when you first built it.

    I have to ask...how well can it play Crysis Metro 2033?

    Seriously though, that's still a pretty sweet rig.

    CD! how does this preform to say a 775 quad or a 1366 quad in performance? 16 cores should have the advantage but im thinking the older hardware would slow it down alittle? are you crunching that rig?
