    that's a Koolance block that's on the 480.. as for Ek, it's the only block that will work with the xfx... After the issues that EK has had in the past over the factor of their nickle plating, and my block being a bad one, I really don't know about getting another one... But, like I said.. Ek is the only brand, besides me making a universal block set up...

    Thx man.

    That coolant color is awesome. I'm really big on bold, vibrant hues and such when used in computers, cars, etc.

    Hats off to you sir for that cable management. My parents computer is in a NZXT Gamma which has basically the same interior design and it was so tough to get it looking even half as good as yours.

    Hello guys, This is my everyday game cruncher:

    [​IMG]

    freak ass cooler- need to change it, loud as hell and can't cope with the oc'd q6600 :(

    Don't mind the cable management, this case doesn't have the ability to hide them at all.

    Even though the case doesn't really allow for proper cable management, I thought you have done a great job to make it as neat and tidy as it is, especially with a non-modular PSU.

    @specks - Hahaha. Yeah, it's my favorite touch. Brings a little "serenity" to the room...if you will.

    @de.das.dude - Yeah, the Lexa S. She's still my favorite NZXT case.

    @SoylentJoe - Actually, I've played with the gamma, and the Lexa has a couple mm more to squeeze cables back there. Thought yes, it was a tight fit. Fortunately there isn't even a bulge on the other side. I can take some pics if you like?

    Damn good day so far. Let me show the story with pics. Did almost identical build (another 3930K, RIVF + NH-D14) with friend earlier and now was time for mine.

    So I heard you like hardware so we put hardware on hardware so you can overclock while you overclock! :pimp:

    I like that black cross fire bridge much better than the standard red/gold. Which cards did it come from? I've been meaning to paint mine black, it's the old kind from a 4870, like the one by your optical.

    Came with the Gigabyte X79-UD5. ASUS didn't even include a Crossfire bridge at all, and the ones that came with the cards are a bit too short to work...ASUS failed on that one, thank god I get many boards.

    Gotta get the drives under the top too, and the monitor on top still...moving wires was easy, thanks to the modular PSU! ;)

    Best thing about those Antec cases is those drive bays. I just wish my other once had the fan bracket as well, instead of me having to buy one. The case they came out of got DVD drive, SSD on the bottom, and a 2TB drive under the DVD in a hotswap bay, so the drive cages were not needed, and I kept them.


    Being able to use them in basically any case with 3x 5.25 bays is pretty nice, too.
