    Out with the god awful piece of crap Razer Black Widow Ultimate and ThermalTake Theron
    [​IMG]
    In with the new! Phone camera doesnt do their shininess any justice at all! Also got a Roccat Kave 5.1 headset two days ago, Fatal1ty was hurting my ears!

    much better :p shame you carn't see the fluid going through it like the block in one of your previous photo's.

    Always wondered how can you tell if the pump fails? Im guessing you can't actually see the fluid moving? Do the pumps make noise?

    My HP xw8600
    [​IMG]

    Specs:
    - 2x Xeon E5420 (2.5GHz Yorkfield)
    - 4x1GB FB-DDR2
    - 74GB WD Raptor
    - HP 800w 80+ PSU
    - HP D5400 motherboard
    - DVD-RW
    - Geforce 8500GT

    I'm not excessively fond with the big string of cables at the bottom, but they are stiff and there isn't really anything to do with them (also, I can't imagine that they impede airflow). HP decided that it would be OK to have a pair of 80w CPUs + GPUs in a case with no intake fan and a 1000RPM exhaust; I feel otherwise, so I put a Corsair fan in the front (cable ties!)
    I'm contemplating de-riveting the HDD cage and then putting in a 2nd 120mm intake--I think that delivering cool air directly to the CPUs might help a bit (load temps are mid-to-upper 60s C in standard room temp)

    Yeah you can tell it's kind of cheap pressed metal when you look at it.

    I've been putting it off for ages but decided to get it over after work... i hope i'm done messing about with the pc now really.
