    Thanks. I will take pics. I will put the red LEDs in tonight and do more testing of the computer. I filled the water loop last night and ran it for 7 hrs with no leaks. It is a great feeling when you hook up everything and you see the LCD power on and the computer is ok..... I look at what I did to the computer as a open heart surgery.

    I am going to OC this computer to its max then push it more until it's happy. I am thinking of getting the Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 3.2GHz. It will help with my 3D work and rendering as well with benchmarks etc.

    Rebuilt my computer using a PC case that I received for free. Antec sent me new USB ports for the front (people broke the old ones) and I painted the scratched up panels hot-rod orange. It took a few days because I did the whole sanding and priming jazz. The best part? FINALLY A SILENT PC. Worst part is that I'm dealing with a 256MB HD5450, which means no games, and as you can see in the photo if I want to upgrade it the new card can't be even an inch longer than this one. The case was a worthy challenge to build in using my full ATX board and non-modular PSU, but I took my time and got it looking right spiffy.

    Would the Asus GTX670 mini fit there?

    Seems to be about the same size as your 5450.

    With the power input being on the side like that I do believe it would work, but I'm looking to spend like $80 versus $380. All I really want/need to run is Team Fortress 2 and maybe L4D2 and Gmod.
