    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 :laugh:

    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 :~)

    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 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 :)

    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:

    [​IMG]

    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 :(

    [​IMG]

    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:

    [​IMG]

    Crysis 2, the surround experience is unbelievable! :rockout: I apologize for the cable mess under my desk :ohwell:

    [​IMG]

    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 :p that's downtown Bangkok in the wallpaper I believe :)

    [​IMG]

    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 :p Will probably upgrade to full 3D surround someday, but not any time soon :p What do you guys think? Any comments will be greatly appreciated :toast:

    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 :toast:

    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 :toast:

    Ya, Blank Panther is. There was also another girl on here at one point but she left because people were making a lot of ''women in the kitchen'' type jokes and she got pissed off and left.(though i believe that was in general nonsense and not here on the main site)

    Most people don't mention their gender here so most of us just assume it's a Male because the majority of people into Computers are still largely males.

    There probably are in fact a fair amount of ladies on here, it's just that there is no point in creating a thread just so they can flaunt such a thing.

    Anyways, this is all off topic. lol

    There's always a good reason to hide your true identity
