    I have sound dampening in my case and can't notice much of a difference, but it looks cool! :laugh:

    Hey, is your Palit 8800GTS loud? Because I have the 9600GT sonic and I was told that it was really quiet and at the lowest speeds it still loud, louder than my CPU fan at high speed.

    At idle its pretty silent, and its been very cool since I got this case so the auto fan speed never goes above 50%. So pretty quiet fan wise, lately its developed a squeal at higher frame rates (really noticeable in intro vids where you get over 1000 fps), not sure if its the ram or gpu making the noise. Had a motherboard where the ram slots squealed and somehow they fixed it with a bios update.

    What do you mean? :D
    There's nothing out of the ordinary going on in the pic - the system just is like that.
    :p

    The tube going to the GPU has the extension because there was a another card sometime ago that I toyed with. Didn't bother to remove the extension even though I removed the 2nd MCW60.
    Rad needs long tubes as it's not attached to the case and is moved from time to time.

    I whipped this one together in about 6 hours right after my DFI Dark and Zotac 8800GT arrived.

    I cannabalized my techstation for the LC gear, a kind of recycling project lol. The Rocketfish was just there...so I went for it.

    I could not see lettting the elements get to my new baby..bug piss and dust and humidity borked the P5K in this picture. Hence the case this time around.

    The Zotac looks crazy...the LED fan compliments the tawdry DFI color scheme

    The G Skill is very nice. Low voltage high speed...and a bag of chips.

    That looks really nice. I'm definitely digging the rocketfish, and I love the way DFI LP boards look. Every time I see one, I want to build a Lego-themed computer around it :laugh: (get one of the boards with yellow slots + Palit card with the yellow cooler + lego case = win)

    The thing is a beast. THe X48 reminds me of everything I loved about the old NF4 boards...crazy subtimings tweaks for RAM, lots of fine tuning options for voltage...it's going to take me months to figure it out :D

    Not the most impressive in terms of hardware, but i do believe its very tidy. Watch this space, possibly a 260 or 4870 on the way soon!

    Hey Cyber...that left ram stick isnt seated and locked in place. May have been corrected since the image, but just something that stood out to me!
     
    CyberDruid says thanks.

    mate i was doubtful about the case, but im not joking i like it even better than my antec 900 i had with my old build and it was cheaper, it looks even more stunning in real life :p only downside is it has that lovely window and the fans it shipped with although good quality tt ones, didnt have any led's, imo theres no point in having a window if you cant see whats inside so i just swapped the rear 120mm tt one with a crappy old led 120 mm i had lying about and theres no difference in temps/noise (win win situation) :toast:

    yea i love my posters lol especially the teamwork one right above my monitor hahaha ;), but bunny suicides crack me up lol, too bad my crappy pic doesnt do it justice :p

    im going to have to look at a new case, im considering watercooling but a proper setup this time and the antec just doesnt cut it. The PSU on the floor idea was nice at first but now it just makes things awkward. Plus your cant mount a radiator internally because the rear is laid out wrong due to the PSU being on the bottom . . . Plus that soprano looks gorgeous, the antecs are like marmite really.
