    Hey guys! it's been a while since I last posted here, but I've been catching up to some of the latest builds, and man, I gotta say that phill's build is the most impressive I've seen in a long time! Congrats mate! :toast:

    In my last post I mentioned I was going to update my pics as soon as I got my third GTX580, but instead, I decided to get one of these puppies:

    The box was a little banged up by the UPS guy :( but the goodies inside were in pristine condition thankfully :p I also got some new red cold cathodes and a couple 200mm LED fans and a 120 LED fan for the H70:

    I also moved my H70 from the top of my case to the back of it, to make room for the two 200mm fans, I'm planing to replace it for an H100 pretty soon and move it again to the top of the case as it can fit a 240mm radiator without any problems:

    Finally, this is how my rig looks now with the two 25.5" monitors on the sides and the 27" 3D monitor in the middle, eventually I plan to get two more 27" 3D monitors for full surround gaming, but it'll take a while to convince the wife about that investment :p

    Any comments will be greatly appreciated guys, thank you! :)

    I use those Cooler Master hard drive cages too. Perfect for benchtops.

    My current build. I'm really still not sure about the cable management feasability in the Armor A90 case. Whatever I try still seems to just not work lol. Forgive the cell phone pictures, I dropped my digital camera.

    Thanks for your comments guys ;) was at work and didn't have a chance to check until now :)

    Yes, I really love this case, I hope you can get one, you can find good deals at Amazon, I got mine at $159 shipped when it was on sale, you'll fall in love with it :)


    Thank you! Well, the shroud covering the cards, the one that has the openings for the PCIe conectors, has a 120mm Cooler Master Excalibur fan in it, so it acts as an airduct blowing fresh air over the cards, there's also a huge fan on the side panel that has a shroud that blows fresh air directly to the cards, this is one of the few cases certified by Nvidia for 3-way SLI, so CM made sure ventilation is not an issue, the cards never get too hot or loud even during heavy use :)
    specks and Lionheart say thanks.

    It is me :D I havent posted up my build thread here, so I thought I'd leave that were it is :D

    Many thanks :D I have some more crazy idea's to finish and do yet but I am looking very much forward to getting a few more parts through and I hope within a few days, they should be here!!

    They are ok, but the fans on them suck... They arent pushing enough air for my liking and when I get my Coolermaster Stacker back from my friend, all of the other drives I have, will be going in that for my server setup :) Now that will be an interesting setup :D

    Hard drives don't need a lot of airflow. The stock ones are more than enough, but I replace the fans anyway, as I hate LEDs. I just like them for benchtop use because the rubber grommets keep them nice and quiet.

    I'd say those 15k and 10k rpm HDD's would get a fair bit hotter than a standard 7.2k rpm HDD would a wee bit more air to keep em a wee bit cooler also helps extend their life span

    Ahhh, yes. Hadn't taken that into account. Still, I don't see the stock fan being an issue in an open air environment like that.
