    Yeah it's a U2-UFO, seems to be a slightly different type than the ones in all the reviews I've found.

    Instead of 3 x 80mm on the back(the side where your water cooling etc goes) it has 2 x 120mm. :)

    Very nice cases :pimp: I think yours is like that because it's a U2, which was newer IIRC

    Yep! +1 I haven't seen many of those tech stands before :rockout:

    I know they were/are limited edition, mine is more limited than the rest since I changed all the yellow bits to black. That and the fact they are very near $400 keeps them out of most peoples grasp.

    It's damn nice! I really like the checker plate MoBo tray, looks industrial like. Plus it just doesnt look like your average square, open bench :pimp:

    But then again, you aren't the average square mod either :roll:

    :rockout:

    Not for reviews on the card itself, but one was given to me for review purposes. Unfortunately it did not come in retail packaging. The other I bought myself.

    Things are coming together, slowly, gonna have a big re-bench session real soon!

    Nice hardware, but those cards really do bend a lot. Needs some backplate with metal support like the new DCII models.

    The bend is pull from the power cables. I propped up the cables, and now there is no sag.

    After reading many reviews(Dave's mostly) I did it...traded all AMD hardware(except for the cards) for an I5 2500K + Z77X-UD5H pics below:
    Old hardware spread around:

    Nice trade! I am sure you wont regret it - intel is more powerful in most cases.

    I'm loving the rigs and I can't help get excited about them!! I'm gonna have issues with my fiancee if I'm not carefull!! :roll:

    I'm in need of some help guys... What should I do??

    I'm giving both i7's (920 @ 4.2Ghz, 6Gb of ram, the 580's and the water cooling to go with so motherboard and CPU as well) away to our son's and I have sat here (for the moment) a pair of 580's that I'd like to change at some point, 8Gb of Mushkin Blackline ram (I bought it cheap for my server rig and it worked fine) and a i7 2600k CPU that I'm told with do 5.2Ghz all day long..

    I've got my quad rad's still with fans and I'm looking to build it into a system for myself....

    Any suggestions would be amazing, cos I've got no clue at all!! :(
