Looks good, oh the PC looks good too Share with us some photo tips
Ah, nothing in particular. You've just got to have the right lighting. I make rich and crisp the colors in Photoshop, the raw photos of the D50 tend to be kind of milky.
had to add another cooling fan due to the summer heat...
Oh i had also replaced the ribbon style IDE cable with a round braided one that's covered by black heatshrink.
I think temps will improve once I upgrade the room's case cooling...
^yes i sleep on a mattress on the floor... i'm broke
the current case temps measured near the cpu socket (via case sensor) is at 104 F. current cpu load is about 10%. Outside temp is at 81F, and its 10:40PM my time. My room temp is probably 90F since it holds heat for a while (even with the window fan bringing fresh air in)
Manually adjust your white balance.
That side panel shot is fantastic.
Now for some run of the mill shots:
It's never going to be opened, so I didn't go hog wild with the CM, just made it tidy for air flow. Booted up no sweat, one of the more trouble free builds I have done.
I really wish this shot would have turned out, it is a gorgeous little case and is light as a feather.
Nice case. Do you have that rear fan as intake or exhaust?
The believe that the rear fan is setup as an intake, which is the default from the factory. Nifty airflow, since the PSU is in the front of the case. Cool air is sucked in right above the cpu, and exits out the front, where the front fan is sucking the hotter air that is coming out the PSU exhaust.
I LOVE the PC-A05
Keep an eye out on the rear top end of the case though, it might get a little warm there. I cut out a fanhole there:
Not using it anymore though...
Nice looking mod. I like the looks of the fan grill. The case is for my Mom's new computer, which doesn't even have a GPU, so I'm hoping the temps will remain OK. The 2500 seems to run fairly cool, but I doubt it will be turned off very often, so I'll keep an eye on them.
I got these:
Put them in the front:
^ Far cleaner and better cabble management than any OEM would provide. To me this is partially why you put together your own rig.
Good cable management leads to better airflow in your case, and it looks good too
I see you're still rocking the Gigabyte P45-UD3P... mine is still chomping through every game. I'm upgrading CPU / RAM / Mobo soon, but I will miss this board if I get rid of it.
I am also still using a UD3P. You can kind of see it here http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2288318&postcount=16642 after my first successful water cooling setup.
It and the Q6600 are champs. They just keep going.
Slight updates to my home workstation. I have mounted the intake fan of my H70 on the exterior of the 120mm exhaust mount on the back of the 800D. I get a lot of hate for using an H70 in an 800D. Oh well.
Had to use my crappy little camera. Tried to make them at least sharp enough to see. Usually it takes really horrible pics in low light.
White CCFL OFF (slightly older pic before I moved intake fan)
White CCFL ON
That light is bright, have a link to it?
It's just a regular white cold cathode, but the reason it looks so bright is I have it mounted in between the top exhaust fans and the side panel mounting rod. It has no obstructions so it shines white light everywhere. Some people make the mistake of mounting the lights on the mobo tray, but I like mine hidden and in a spot where it illuminates everything.

Oh, and your sig is wrong...coffee is watered-down espresso...
I really like your choice of placement for the ROG sticker.
Sh!t son! that's clean I love the Sniper cases, your rig is sick Joe!
Not my pc, but wasn't really a place to post this.
Thought I'd share my heatsink draw, I have more heatsinks but they're all over the place XD
the top right one is a 470/480 hs right? looks like it
470, it's shrouds underneath the 470 heatsink/shroud in the foreground.
That's very clean bro, great job!
I'm thinking gottistar's rig is a prebuilt
Definately not prebuilt, saw a couple posts ago from the NXZT Clubhouse and he had a crappy AIO WC unit.
Highly suspicisous, -__-
