    I did all that long before I took pictures. I think it was in my shorts when I saw the box in the UPS guys hands:roll:

    AFAIK the cooler is supposed to release very soon, Xoxide is still OOS as well;)

    So do the Blacklines I got now, which would suit your build much better.;)

    I must say, they do look out of place. Plus, your colour balance is wrong. The fins look like plastic. :laugh:

    2133mhz 9-11-9-27 1.55v. Secondaries on P67 aren't what you're used to. ;)

    Try to hit this(but i used 4 sticks):

    still slamming drivers in, haven't connected the net, or even looked to see about bios'. I will get to clocking after dinner and drivers and see what I can figure out for this rig. Hell this thing could be 90 degrees right now and I still don't know it yet;)

    I think my PC starts to feel depression when it loads images like that, ^ 2 posts. (*assigns the AI process a lower priority so the pc doesn't commit suicide/bluescreen)

    Yeah, after this weekend I'll be making sure of the alignments and such. I've heard stories of the DD Monsoon leaking, so I want to make sure it's not going to do that before I go and start with the top.

    I dont think so Tim.

    140mm coolers are designed for a small percentage of pc users. I think it will be outshined by other similar coolers.

    I have a couple of updates

    First off, my Cooler Master Haf X arrived yesterday, this is the case compared to my old Termaltake Armor+

    [​IMG]

    They are almost the same size, but both thermals and acoustics are markedly improved. This is how the build looks like, will get a third GTX580 pretty soon, which means the X-Fi will have to go unfortunately :(, but I trust it'll be a fair trade off ;)

    [​IMG]

    Gotta work a little more on the cabling, full specs are found under my system specs tab.

    [​IMG]

    So that's my PC ATM, will upload new pics once I get my new GTX580 sometime next month for some 3-Way SLI glory :rockout:

    The second update has to do with my HTPC, I got a 128GBs Kingston SSDNow V100 as a boot drive, after I went for RAID 0 SSDs in my main rig, I just couldn't stand how unresponsive my HTPC was, Anand got it right, once you taste SSD performance, you just cannot go back to mechanical drives for your OS. The V100 isn't nearly as fast as my dual Vertex 3s, but boy it makes a world of a difference compared to the old 7200RPM drive:

    [​IMG]

    I moved my HTPC from my bedroom's 46" LCD screen to my 58" 3D Plasma screen in my game room, as the wife was growing weary of some late night sessions of the Witcher 2 and Crysis 2:

    [​IMG]

    What I didn't realize is that this provided for some amazing 3D gaming sessions, my good 'ol SLI GTX285s still pack a good punch for gaming, and I can run everything at max details (except for Uber Sampling for the Witcher 2 :() and 3D gaming at 1920x1080p.

    [​IMG]

    Sound is powered by an Onkyo TX-SR606 (soon to be replaced by a TX-SR609) connected to a Klipsch 5.1 Quintet SL + 12" Synergy Subwoofer speaker setup.

    The way it's meant to be played indeed :rockout:

    Why are you going to replace your 606 with a 609? If you are going to upgrade, at least go up a model line. I replaced my 606 with an HT-RC270. Check Amazon before you buy. I got my 270 for less than the then current 60x series (think 608 might have been the newest at the time) was going for.

    Well if you have to know... ATM it's freakin' upside down! :banghead:

    [​IMG]

    Turned out to be a way too restrictive loop - about to remove cooling heads for MOSFETs and NB/SB :banghead:

    This is the price you pay when you don't take advantage of the forums, i.e. don't ask for any advice or feedback before starting a build... :slap:

    But at least there weren't any leaks! :D

    Lots of 90 degree fittings in there. Is that 1/2" or 3/8" tubing? Looks like 1/2". You could try using a more heavy duty pump to overcome the restriction.

    Aw, you probably don't need all those heatsinks anyway. :)

    Still curious as to where pump, res, and rad are going. It does look a bit tight in there.
