    It looked like the fitting was more narrow, so I thought maybe tubing would give better flow, not sure. I have used that fitting since my 6950s without any major issue, but I thought I'd give this a chance. We shall see. Currently, it's going well.

    Just played BF3 for almost an hour with the cards at 1000/1500, and temps were 39* 1st card and 40* 2nd card. So I suppose that's not too bad, plus it's kind of warm in here tonight, ambient ~25*C

    Do you think it would look better with the black fitting? I was thinking of getting another one and setting it up in serial....

    Ah, awesome. Must be like my B3 board (one of the really early ones, I think it was March or April last year) where on the box and manual it says B3 but the manufacturer still hadn't updated the labelling on the board itself haha.

    Honestly I can't say exactly, as I bought it used here on the forums in August last year, and it's worked great ever since, as did my M4A89 Asus mobo before it; I'm a little partial to Asus on mobos since I've had great success with them :toast:

    I definitely think the zip ties look out of place. Either stick with the same kind of compression fittings all around or opt for something like the SLI fitting that matches the rest of the fittings.

    I like running multiple cards in parallel, which is what I think you meant by adding a second fitting. All the cards get the same temp water, not the second card getting water heated by the first card (and the third heated by the first and second, etc.). I actually don't think I've ever run multiple cards in serial, so I don't know if there's any major impact on the cooling :p

    Yes, I meant I'd like to run them in parallel, not serial :p
    Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll take a look for a pair of nicer connectors to throw between a the cards, something with decent flow.

    I still use a B2 board but I have not had any issues with it. It clocks quite well!

    guys i want to share with you my new keyboard ... From razer lyocsa to Microsoft Arc... Maybe is not the best idea but... I think the Nostromo is far enough for playing games the lycosa is for hard gaming and i never used it for that.

    So little and so nice keyboard is very thin and silent plus is wireless.

    Nice, I noticed that my old B2 board that I gave back was quite good too, better than my current B3. Not really sure why, but probably just luck of the draw. I actually started to get HDD issues with the B2 board though (random HDD disconnections and increasingly slower loading times for things), which is part of the reason why I decided to throw together a home server to back things up onto.

    Wow, that really looks like the work-place where Neo used to work in the Matrix. :D How do you feel? ;)

    Finally got a moment where my desktop was open. Lousy phone camera, and lighting isn't that good.

    Good setup but I was never a fan of those AC Freezer 7's. I had a REV 1 that would Overheat a c2d 775 chip at stock. I pretty much trashed it.

    If you can spare the change, a Hyper 212+ evo is quite good

    Ease of installation was part of the appeal, and the fact that I'm not sure if the ~16 cm coolers can fit in the cabinet. And my mostly normal clocked A6 is no match for that cooler. :p

    And without wanting to use fasteners of any kind, I don't feel like I can do much better with the cables. :S

    And an even more horrible picture of it's normal home.

    The first was too. But that one's under horrible lighting. The first one was just luck, that the lamp in the photo actually provided pretty good lighting.

    I have really enjoyed them. Mostly for gaming (no mic though so no BF3 Teamspeak). I recently bought the Bose QuietComfort 15 for traveling. They are really good for canceling noise and listening to music/movies.

    Audio Technica's FTW. I've been thinking about getting a pair of Sennheiser HD558s though.

    Also for mic you could get one of the zalman clip on mics. They work pretty well.
