    i posted mine earlier in the thread. 12 externals, minimum 1.5TB drives


    (i find internals to be bad. externals can be powered on/off individually, thus extending their life and protecting the data)

    Nice amount of data.

    You can turn off internals quite easy. Enable power modes, turn off hard disk after so many minutes. Mine are set to 1 min. So main drive still spins while others are 100% off till i click on them.:)

    Aaah those GTX 295, the double PCB ones. That's one of my all-time favourite cards. A lot of people say it looks like VHS tape, but for me its got a special charm. I am not sure what exactly lures me into this card, but those fins on the side have always looked ferocious to me. Great card IMO.

    English is not my first language so I still don't understand. Oh well nevermind it's not important as long as I'm satisfied with what I got. :)

    I'm putting the system together now, so soon there will be pictures! I just have to say I really really really don't like the AC Accelero S1 plus. I like it, but the adhesive for the heatsinks is horrible. You get two bags you're supposed to mix for five minutes, which I did. I probably did 6 or 7 minutes or vigourous mixing. Yet the sinks for the VRM's just don't stick, they just slide around. Plus the stuff gets f'kin everywhere, so I dread the day I have to clean up around the VRMs. WHAT IS WRONG WITH GOOD OL THERMAL TAPE AC???

    But yeah pics in a couple of hours when the gluethermalpoopgoo has hardened a bit.

    @ krazy owl: He means Ubuntu nowadays uses Unity and he think it's bloated ie full of stuff you don't want or need. I say he talks out of his bottom. And I also say if you want a lightweight Ubuntu Lubuntu is the best imo. I like it very much.

    It is bloated. And when you're running older hardware (P4, 2gb RAM) it makes a good bit of difference.

    Meh cable management isn't that important to me. It's just ugly and sucky.

    It isn't bloated because you can't run it properly on older hardware. I'm not a fan of it, but I wouldn't call it bloated.

    Anyway I'm not very happy with the GPU temps, they reach about 80 C when gaming, which is 10 C more than with the stock cooler. I know it's passive, but I still think it should be a bit lower than that. Airflow isn't very good though, will see if I can find a silent fan in my Murderbox of coolers. Plus I had to remove the Accelero because the VRM sinks kept falling off, so I might have botched the installation a bit there. I did find some sinks, with thermal tape on them, from another Accelero I had some years back.

    tl;dr need moar brain

    This system has 2x XSPC EX480 and 1 EX360 in the loop, 2x MCP355 with EK Top, Apogee HD block and 2x GTX680 XSPC blocks for my GTX670s.

    These were recent pics after I replace my 6950 for GTX670 in SLI - This is my case labs build. (Rig1 in system specs)
    I need to get some better pics.
