Looking apart from the humongous case, I think it looks awesome, I really found slick and 'cool', nothing too flashy about it, its a very formal case. Oh and yea, you should consider a bigger screen indeed :D

I was looking at the Dell Ultrasharp U3011 but decided to do the new case and add the 480 rad first, prices in the UK for the Dell are still around £1100 so hoping they come down a bit in the next couple of months, screen i have is actually a 24" 1920x1200, i think the camera angle in that last pic with it next to the case kind of makes it look alot smaller than it is :p

It's just some aluminium bar i bought, drilled and tapped, it's just to stop any sag as the cards are pretty heavy with thoes blocks on.

OK, but pics aren't very clear. Any chance you can take some other ones without the UV light? I'd like to see how it went together.

Here is another pic of it, it's basically just 2 lengths of 6mm aluminium, the top shorter piece is the length of the distance between the pcie slots minus 2mm to allow for half of the pcb on each card and drilled and tapped at each end and the longer bottom piece just goes to the bottom of the case and and is drilled and tapped at one end with a neoprene washer glued on the bottom.

Thanks. I was thinking of doing something like that, but I was thinking about using some kind of plastic for the rod. I assume you have some kind of threaded rod between the two pieces?

In the top i have an M2.5 bolt and in between the 2 pieces is another M2.5 bolt with the head cut off so like a bit of threaded bar really.

I use a few places dependant on stock and prices, OverclockersUk and Scan i use mainly for hardware and some watercooling gear but most of the watercooling stuff came from Specialtech and also some from Warercooling UK.

Edit: Added some new pics with a better camera.
