To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
CoolerMaster Stacker using the supplied rollers, AMD Opteron 175 @ 2.9 GHz, DFI NF4 Expert, EVGA 7900 GTX 512 SLI @ 700/1800, 2 GB G.Skill DDR 500 (Infineon CE-6) 3-3-2-8, Mushkin 650 Watt SLI PSU, 2 x 250 GB SATA II with 16 MB cache, Logitech DiNovo Bluetooth, Dell 2405FPW

Mods:
Innovatek dual 120mm rad on bottom drawing in cool air, second 120mm rad at back, Innovatek XX Flow CPU block, Innovatek G70 Coolers, Innovatek 7900 power coolers, Swiftech pump and reservoir, Zalman fan controller, LCD monitor in case.

I wanted a solid gaming system that stayed quiet and cool. All the fans are sub 20 db 120 mm or 80 mm fans. The Zalman fan controller helps control all the fan speeds and keep the system silent. The Koolance controller automatically stages up the fan speeds when the CPU block temp exceeds 36 C. Benchmarks are decent with 15938 on 3DMark05 and 10138 on 3Dmark06.

Awesome, I got those memorex drives too. Really sweet, could you tell me where you got those stickers for the side-panel? It's really sweet seeing that big Nvidia logo, it doesn't look like a sponsor, it just looks cool.

nice rig, whats the glowy thing at the bottom o_O

It does not look so glowy in person. Pics always get a little to bright. That is the dual 120 rad with two fans.

OK, I had got the vinyl appliques from eBay, and they were no current listings. I found the receipt, and they do have a web site.

http://www.shadowmajik.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi

They sell a Calvin urinating on an ATI logo, but that might upset some folks. I used it on a PC I built for a friend. The site also has the ATI friendly version, as well, thistime on nVidia, amongst others.

Tough crowd. I guess you have a bad EVGA 7900 series card? The issue is not limited to them, by the way. It affects all 7900 cards. But, they supposedly found the issue. No official word, yet.

Ah, I thought you were the "1" vote. Thought you might have been burned by the 7900 GTX bugs (green boards that start with "E"). Looks like I guessed wrong. Thanks!
