    Thanks Mate,
    I was going to water cool 570's with Koolance blocks I just got but decided to keep this case on air.
    Such a good air case - but with just a bit more mod - opions for 360 rad up front, 280 in roof and 240 at rear - potential for a super water case too.

    Cool :toast: where did you get your waterblocks from, and how were them? if it's not to much to ask. :)

    Australian eBay Deal.
    Seller had O'Clocked & NON reference 580 cards so and blocks didn't fit :banghead:
    New & never used - 2 of them not even taken out of packaging, she realized problem - but couldn't return the blocks.
    They were sold as a lot of three - so "highish" starting price put everyone else off.
    I got all three inc postage for under $240 AUD.
    Considering some are asking over $150 each (in Australia) not sure about elsewhere what prices are - I think I got bargain of the year anyway. :D

    Dunno, haven't checked :p the only game that doesn't run smoothly is the Witcher 2 when I enable uber sampling, but other than that, all other games run smoothly :)

    very nice looking setup,how do you find the crossfire works?? with gaming etc,im thinking of buying nother 6850 and doing the same,is it overkill and do you get micro-stuttering as ive heard can happen?ps whats the cpu cooler,looks different to most?

    Crossfire will usually run nearly flawlessly except for occasional stuttering but nothing major, also whether or not is is overkill depends on how you define overkill really.

    He is using a CoolerMaster V10 cooler btw.

    This ol gal is finally done!

    The original plan was a Black & Red color scheme with AMD's bulldozer. Couldn't wait any longer and leaked benches didn't give a compelling reason to choose the Red Team.

    So the case is Red and Black but the rest is noctua & steel. Still looks pretty good, though. Right?

    Yes, I'm using wireless. I know.

    Both cards unlocked to 1536 shaders. w00t!

    I've only got one of the SSDs mounted properly. I need to request some of the SSD screws from Antec as the case only comes with enough for one SSD.

    And I should spend a bit more time hiding these cables. But the 4x 640GB drives in the RAID10 work pretty well and temps in this lower chamber are good as there is a dedicated intake fan and the exhaust fan on the PSU.

    You're the second person to say something along those lines. I don't see any identifying characteristics that would allow you to guess my location. What do you see that I'm missing?

    The Cubitek in the first pic is my new machine, but it's waiting for cables. When it's finished I can finally throw all my loose parts in the cellar and clean up this pit.
