You know I never really was a fan of acrylic cases, but I must admit yours looks pretty nice.

Looks very good! You could try a full drive colouring? Just a thought since you see the sides as well? Just spray everything. Hehe. And putting the motherboard side towards the side of the table wasn't by accident right? ;)

I had the same idea of putting ramsinks on the ati silencer, just havn't done it yet. Did you happen to check temps before and after to see if it made any difference? What did you use to stick em on there?

I was never sure about those clear case's. I have seen so many that look like a train wreck! , but this one sure looks sweet! as for the ram sinks and how to attach, I've done it 2 ways. (after the oem thermal tape dies) get arctic silver thermal epoxy you mix it up 50/50 and then take that and mix it 50/50 with A.S. 5. , you will still be able take them off without breakin your chips. I used to use thermal paste and the tinyest drop off super glue on one of the corners, but after getting the thermal epoxy, i probably have a lifetime supply. ( 2 tubes bigger than the AS5 tube)

Ramsinks are zalman and they come with thermal tape. Memory OC is 5 mhz higher (607 card is not PE). Am not sure about the temp but i think its couple degrees lower.

I never really liked transparent cases much since it is so hard to hide all the cabling. But, you have shown that it is possible for a very clean setup. Nice build!

Are those Zalman Hard Drive coolers in your mod? If they are I use the same ones in my PC. Nice Mod.

I have to admit that im not a big fan of clear clases becuase they are just so darn hard to hide wires in. But yours is one of the more better looking ones i have seen. Very nice rig!
