    Nice work! You know the polycarbonate fan holder for the CPU HSF? Did you know you can actually fit two of them on there for push/pull? Takes a bit of fiddling but despite what people say they do fit ;)

    Thanks:toast:, yeah I figured you could but never really worried about it, and plus Im looking for a new CPU cooler too, mainly at the Noctua D14 and the Corsair H100:rockout::D.

    I will be buying couple more 140mm Enermax red led fans:p to complete the look, a WD raptor 600GB HDD:rockout::twitch: for all my steam games:D and also selling my HD 6970 off as its abit too loud for my taste:(, as for new vid cards Im looking at either 2x XFX HD 6950's or 2x EVGA GTX 570's (2560MB Edition's) :respect::respect::p ans should be SWEET:eek::eek:

    Mmmm I've got my eye set on the H100 for my next project. Well, the project after next actually :p Just got my U2UFO (brushed silver) through so that's my next big project.

    I got the TRUE black (see specs) for my raven 2 build and never looked back; temps are lovely and red and black colour scheme is finally finished :laugh:

    +1 for that

    BTW, the D5 tops tend to increase your flow a bit, so you get better performance on top on non-ass looks.

    My current setup. I modified my K62 a bit to allow for better cooling.

    the banana was my daughters idea, she was very excited when I stuck it there.

    She is 6 and has quickly become my "modding/building buddy" If she see's a pc part come in the house she will follow me to the basement and work all night or until mom makes her go to bed.

    This was our last project together..she picked the colors and did some sanding.

    Seeing as I cant sell my Cosmos S were going to do something with it for a Bulldozer build.
    I have a great theme in mind if I can find the right board with the colors I want

    Nice work, like the banana skin too :laugh:
    I got a case like that with the window-ish front panel - I took it apart and stuck some photos in there. It ended up looking like this:

    wow! I must say, yours are some nice PCs :respect:

    I've spend several hours looking at your pictures and can't help to feel sorry for my own :cry:

    Mi PC:
    [​IMG]

    The case is an Octanux GX9001 from a national brand (Acteck). I think that Apex or Apevia had the same case, or a similar one. It was one of the first "tooless" cases that I'd seen.

    [​IMG]

    The case has some cincelled plexiglass on the door and can be lit up. I mostly keep it off. There is a frontal panel that shows some information: time, temps, fan speeds, HDD and optical drive activity.

    Inside the nest:

    [​IMG]


    The only modding I've done to the case: add a 120mm fan at the top.
    [​IMG]
    (I really need to get a nibbling tool)


    After looking at some of your projects I've got a couple of ideas. I'll try to tidy up the insides a little better, at least put some zip tie base mounts in there. :cool:

    The wiring can be excused considering that case has only one wire routing hole and that motherboards 20/24 pin plug is in a horrible position..;)

    I like the front panel LEDs.:)

    Quick update -

    Unfortunately, I'm going to be selling off my H²O cooling gear. :(

    On the bright side I don't think my second H²O cooled PC will be the last H²O loop I put together tho :p

    /edit

    Forgot to say I replaced 2 stock Lian Li 120MM fans and another 120MM with some 120MM Yate Loon mediums.

    Hopefully I can end up running this 2500K at the same speed I had it on under H²O.
