HEC Black Steel Case
Razer Lycosa Keyboard
Razer DeathAdder Mouse
Razer eXactMat Mouse Pad
Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Sound Card
Senhessier HD485 Head Phones
Logitech USB Mic
Creative 2.1 Speaker Setup

Mods:
Painted the inside of the case a semi-gloss black to match the exterior. Installed a side panel window using Lowe's plexiglass. For edge trimming I used Autozone's edge trimming for cars. Dremeled out sections on the motherboard tray for better cable management. Dremeled out the front and rear stock fan grills for better airflow. Dremeled out the majority of the hard drive slots to free up unused space. Dremeled out a 92mm fan hole for an intake fan on the bottom of the case. Used Lowe's provided screws and washers to mount the hard drives in the optical bays and the radiator on the back of the case. The HD's were mounted backwards for better cable management. Installed foam on both side panels. Finally, wheels were added to give clearance for the lower fan and pump screws.

At 3.5GHz (1.47v) I've achieved a 700MHz overclock on the CPU, 200MHz overclock on the memory, 450MHz overclock on the HT Link and 450MHz overclock on the NB. My idle temps range from 30-35c and my full load temp is 45-47c. During testing yesterday it was 76F in my house so 30-35c is a fairly good idle temp IMO. I'm still testing my max 100% (Prime95 and OCCT) stable overclock, I'm hoping for 3.7 or 3.8GHz MAX. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the water setup.

I voted 5/10 because:

A 5 is good,, that's what I feel is the amount of detail you have into it. too many scattered wires & too long of a loop, Also the fan blowing on your block looks out of place. I will score higher a pond stricter detail on your part. but in no way is this Rig a 9 or 10.

5/10 is fair. Those pics were RIGHT after I got it up and running. I'm a complete newbie to water cooling so I left a lot of room on the tubing so I could easily maneuver around if I had to.. The GTX260 is going to be water cooled so I will just use the same tube for that once I get the D-Tek parts for the video card. The fan is for the memory, not the CPU. As for the wiring, I plan to sleeve those AFTER I get the goodies for the video card. THEN I will have a AMDVidia 4.0. :D

Uploaded some new pics BTW, bigger pics.

It does have a nice look going for it,, & the pictures are way better, Thanks for that, as for the memory fan, Check the distance of your stand offs, I believe you could mount 2 80mm fans above the memory. from the sound of it,, 4.0 should score higher.

Very nice. Still want bigger pictures though.

You lost points for the 120mm over the RAM. Why not get a RAM Cooler?

Nice case though.

i gave you a 9/10 i like the acrylic look of it all...i dont know why that guy gave you a 5...i would like to see his case modding...not trying to stir anything up but still atleast give some reasoning.
i would like to know where you got that water cooler from, i cant find any decent on the egg, also maybe you can try an led fan for the memory just to see how it looks.
