    This is my new favorite case, 830K. Picked it over the armor suit and Antec 1200. Has the monolithic front of a Lian-Li with the black interior and side window of the Antec... and no crappy logos to muck it up. In the last pic you can make out my black cardboard duct that moves air straight through the floor mesh onto the card fan. When I get my 4870X2 it will be completely isolated from the rest of the system since it only pumps air out the back.

    That batwing fan has like the best noise/airflow ratio ever. 70 CFM at 18 dB.

    This Skulltrail Rig is my daily driver. I use it for Crunching (WCG BOINC) and Folding (GPU2) as well as work and play. It runs 24/7 off an external cooler.

    Latest upgrade is the 4 Samsung F1 drives in RAID5 (2TB) and the VelociRaptor.

    [​IMG]
    Hard to see but there is an Areca 1210 Raid Controller in the top PCIe slot and an X-Fi Xtreme Music right under the first HD3870X2.

    [​IMG]
    This is pretty much the last rig I will be building for myself as I don't even really deserve one this nice ;)

    Thanks:)

    Here's a quick build for the Family. Basically used as an HTPC in the Living Room driving a 52" Samsung LCD.

    I did not lavish much attention on this one but it does the job.

    I must sing the praises of this Enzotech cooler...it's about as good as Liquid Cooling if it can grab enough fresh air.

    [​IMG]
    The RAM gets really hot so I just put that OCZ cooler on there.

    QX9650 on a GA-X38 DQ6 with 8GB of G SKill DDR2 1000. The 150GB RaptorX is kind of a waste since you cannot see it lol and a pair of Hitachi Deathstars are good for raising the case temp about 20C. It's a hot running box to be sure.

    That's one impressive rig :D

    Is that painted, or anodised on the inside? or did it come like that?

    They're a decent company, my friend bought one of their CD/DVD drives once because he was too lazy to do his own paint job. :shadedshu
    Their Pandora series of cube cases is nice too. (Their site is confusing, just Google their products its easier)

    Could Not Stand the Spaghetti

    I was a little bored yesterday so I redid the LianLi rig.

    Replaced all the cheapo LED Coolermaster fans with SanAce1011 103.5 CFM units exceptforthe HDD caddy which I put a stock LL fan into. Angled one of crappy CM fans at the RAM (cable ties FTW) and found a LL squirrel cage fan to draw heat of the GFX. I also had a 90mm TT fan laying around that fit perfectly on top of the card to blow more heat out the back through the open PCI slot.

    Results are a stunning 15C drop in load temps at the same settings. CFM:rockout:

    So I cranked it up to 4ghz and did some prime95 stress testing and then set it to Crunching for WCG BOINC. Currently running 4ghz load for 12 hours at 60C with Side Panel on, 55C with it off, CPU fan on medium.

    Room for a dualie rad now too :D

    [​IMG]
    The CPU fan control is on a PCI plate. At medium it's tolerable but loud, on full it's too loud, but the temps do drop another 4-5C.

    [​IMG]
    Considering lining the interior with sound dampening. But it's a great improvement over the "before" where I was getting 55-60C load temps at 3.33Ghz.
