    I agree, it does look great.


    Fans, cables and coolers can add up pretty quickly. A full set of BitFenix cables is actually pretty pricey in and of itself.

    Well almost. I broke it down:

    Cables $70
    Coolers $220
    Fans $110
    GFX $520
    CPU $280
    Board $200
    RAM $150
    Soundcard+OPAMPS $160
    Case $120
    SSD $350
    HDDs $335
    PSU $170
    Bluray $80

    $2765 total. And of course that's only counting whats in it now. I changed a lot of parts before settling in.

    Nice clean rig that's for sure!

    I wasn't sure about the GPUs cooler, but it does indeed look really good.

    I'm tapped. I owe my savings account about $400 still from the last round of upgrades. I am tempted by those Bitfenix sata cables though.... but that's another $30. I'm really enjoying their cables. My NZXT ones were stiff, hard to connect, and I don't like their sparkly finish as much. Plus their 8pin had some notch on it that made installing the H110 pretty alarming. The plug on the MB was bending and I could barely get my USB cables back in because the entire board was shifting down. Switched to a Bitfenix and it fit perfectly.

    Oh and I forgot the ROG SLI bridge. That adds $5.

    Little bit of the "Her's" rig building in progress. Stopped here because I have to extend the tubing. Should have a finished image in the next couple of days.

    Thanks! As for the bays, the case doesn't loose much structural integrity, but to say it isn't weaker than with the full rack in there would be a lie, but it is in no way flimsy with it gone. The chassis is from Fractal Design, and is engineered to be completely removable (the HDD racks I mean).

    @ RM, after building mine she fell in love, so this is sort of the mini-me version;)

    Sweet build so far!

    Is there a reason why your running the tubes from the bottom? maybe that tube length will fit if you flipped the rad.

    It looks like there's a res in the top of the rad.

    Usually not a fan of Alienware stuff. But the carbon fibre work you've done makes it look great. Mean/angry looking without being over the top.

    CRAZY STUFF AGAIN!!!! It's gonna be sad to think it will have cables in it though..lol

    After opening my case and looking at all the shit, I decided against making it nice enough for a photo.

    So here's another picture of my new PSU, now in my pc. :p

    Recently gutted my 2nd and 3rd rigs, to transfer the components into two new cases I had gotten:
    NZXT Phantom 410 Red and Corsair Obsidian 650D
    [​IMG]
    Transferred the parts of my 2nd rig into the 650D, very spacious mid tower (odd that it's classified as mid, it's about the same size as my full tower Thermaltake Level 10GT
    [​IMG]

    My NZXT Phantom 410 in all its glory
    [​IMG]
    The insides, like the 650D, is still somewhat of a mess as I'm still checking for stability and temps before I get down to organizing the cables. BTW, I had to remove the middle HDD cage to accommodate the two especially long cards....heck, the Lightning is a tad longer than the HD6990 actually.

    No real reason for it, I have checked since, still just ever so slightly short.
