Huh? What case?
Cant really move it, but feel free to drop that link in a new thread in the SBA section and ask away
its all good, just this thread is more about showing and less about asking
Well Take a Look at my New Thread then see what ya think n All
Or you could just buy an external RAID cage and put it under your desk or behind your monitor or something.
Try that out. Also clean it, it might be dust clogged.
Another update... again
Phew... I think I'm done messing with my PC for awhile. I desperately need a modular power supply for this case, I'll get there eventually.
I simply won't have time when class starts this next week
You can always re-route wires and use cable ties to clean up
Yeah I'm gonna wait on the re-routing until I get a modular power supply at some point.
It's not noticeable but I am using lots of zip ties. 4" Rosewill ones from newegg
I had to use two of 'em together to tie that burly bundle of Corsair power connectors.
The cables in there look loose, but trust me they aren't :~)
Picked up an i5 2500k today and this motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance LGA 1155 Intel P67...
Ill have to post some pics when they arrive
Aw man, that's what I want to do with my loki. But 92mm fans are scarce here (regular ones, imagine PWM). I have no idea why.
The NZXT Vulcan
Sexy case why no side fan ?
The side panel wont go on with a side fan cause of the Corsair A70 is too big. the side panel comes 1/4 inch from it, I was worried that it wouldnt fit and it did but tightly
Ahh k makes sense
The best mATX case I have ever used. I do have some issues with it like the 90MM rear fan slot, it should have been a 120mm since the rest of the case uses 120mm fans but oh well. its got plenty of airflow
I love the Vulcan... might be my choice for a mATX build at some point. I'd prefer a window to the mesh though.
Hey guys, I finally got my new GTX 580 a few days ago, but I had not had any time to upload new pics, here are most of the components in my PC:
Here's the beast with the three cards installed, there's no room for my X-Fi anymore, I wish I had an extra PCIe 1x slot available
This is the Witcher 2 at 5760x1080, everything's maxed out, I had not raised the LCDs on the sides for this photo, so the pics didn't line up perfectly, I fixed that using a couple books underneath the LCDs stands:
Crysis 2, the surround experience is unbelievable! I apologize for the cable mess under my desk
This is my desktop at 5760x1080 using Nvidia Surround, I used a couple books to raise the 2 Asus LCDs, now everything's lined up more or less that's downtown Bangkok in the wallpaper I believe
If I use the center monitor only, I can use 3D Vision, but for surround gaming I have to go back to 2D rendering, as my other two monitors are 2D only Will probably upgrade to full 3D surround someday, but not any time soon What do you guys think? Any comments will be greatly appreciated
Your Epeen isn't high enough, get more I tellz ya, MORE.........
Lol jks bro, very EPIC setup indeed man shames my rig but oh well, I got an EVGA GTX 580 on the way hopefully soon can't wait to test it out and could you tell me your temps on your 3 GTX 580's sandwiched like that, just wanna see if the HAF X case does its job well when cards are in that tight configuration
LMAO! Thanks man, appreciate it! xD
Temps are a little high but not that bad, idling at aprox 40 degrees and maxing at around 82~85, GPU1 (the top card I assume) tends to be around 5 degrees higher than the bottom ones, kinda weird as I expected the card in the middle to be the hottest one.
I think the HAF X is awesome when it comes to air circulation, particularly if you use the included 120mm air duct to cool your cards I hope you enjoy your new 580, your case will be able to handle it without breaking a sweat
One question though, are you replacing your 6970 for the 580? Crossfire scaling is almost perfectly linear if you get a second 6970, and it should rival a couple 580s in SLI. Just wondering, gotta go to bed, will post some pics from my temps tomorrow, thanks again for your reply
I'll sell you my legs and 2 fingers for that...
My 'temporary' fix....

And "Alt" is going to leave me soon as well!
