CD, how does the board mount on there? Just screw onto stand-offs like normal? I think it would be it would be nice for a test-bench to have some method for quickly swapping boards.

Either way, that's totally bad-ass! :rockout:

I still need to post my pics, but I've been having trouble with techpowerup.org for hosting. It takes forever (my slow upload) and then finally spits out an error at me (can't remember and too lazy to check right now). Is there a file-size and/or dimension limit on there?
Oh, I just remembered that the error said something about not being able to move the image :ohwell: :confused:
I agree. That is the one thing I plan to change. I'm going to use some short sections of all thread rod instead of screws so I can just slide the board onto the studs.

I did some tweaking on the loop to allow for chipset cooling on a board I am interested in benching: the Asus Blitz. It's a discontinued board...but I still want to play with it :D

you could use push pins instead of screws!

The standoffs are permanent (broached into the mobo tray) and tapped 6-32 so the easiest method might be either thumbscrews or threaded rod. Pushpins that fit into the 6-32 standoffs might work though...had not though about that.

Thanks

yes, this way you don' t have to remove the standoffs...and they are the fastest to remove aswell!

yep a pair of ZOTACs. I like the color of the fans :p

I have to say the bigger the screen the better when gaming. I really like BioShock on the 52" Samsung LCD

This is where my hours went for a while. Its nothing out of the ordinary, case only costed me 89 AUD.

PC Opened up and turned off! (Fan on the CPU heatsink is the ultra kaze 3000rpm)

:love: Crossfire

PC Closed up and turned on! (Fan from Xigmatek placed back on and ultra kaze 3000rpm used as intake)


Me and my girlfriend's HQ, messy I know.. (2x 22" Inch monitors, 1x BenQ, 1x Asus)


Here's a benchmark to sum it all up

:-/ The benchmark means very little because you customized the test. Other than that you keep a clean case, but you should really work on your dishes!

I vote for the rod. I just hate push-pins, and I don't think thumbscrews are a good idea as they might be too bulky and not fit with certain boards.

Anyway, that's a nice looking board; I've never seen one of 'em before.
