Added another one -- straight-on side shot; doesn't leave anything to imagination.

nice modding, clean build, great overclock, overall superb job. On a side note my comment stays, but I took my vote back, only because u not understanding something, & instead of researching it, you gave someone you don't even know a really hard time, I really disliked that, not a cool thing to do, On another side note, try & do what you think doesn't take skill's then you can argue the point.

Thank you! I am in the continual process of overclocking and screwing around. Currently I am running my CPU at 4.05GHz -- not a big jump from 4.01, but an improvement none-the-less.

Uhh... well, 3dmark06 is currently out of commission for me. Haven't figured out why yet, but I switched to a different video card driver version and no matter what I try, it isn't working in 3dmark06 in SLI. Every other game works fine in SLI.... so I will have to get back to you on that one.

My best so far was 18,7xx.

19,217 highest so far with updated specs above.

Found out why 3dmarks06 didn't want to run SLI any more: I had setting in NVIDIA control panel to "SLI Performance Mode: Force Alternate Frame Rendering 1" which gave me the best performance. But all the sudden that setting wouldn't allow SLI in 3dmark06, but SLI worked in every other program fine still. I have to set to "SLI Performance Mode: NVIDIA Recommended (SLI)" for it to work in 3dmark06 now. ?!?!? I dunno why.

How in the world is that giving you a crappy comment? People are way over-sensative at this website apparently. This seems to be a daily occurance for me.

How was asking this guy what kind of 3marks06 score he got with dual ATIs arguing?

nice clean spider... 8/10 great job!!!! and ty is an ass for posting a 2... i think he feels a tad intimidated!
Umm.. No, I never gave him a 2. I gave him a 6. He gave me a two because I asked him what kind of 3dmarks06 score he got with those ATI cards. Go figure.

Now everyone things I am a jerk and are hatemailing me.

Yeah, I definately wanted to keep everything enclosed in my computer.

At this point I really wish I had a larger case; something like an antec 1200. But at the same time I like the smaller case.

I definately would have liked to run a 2x120mm radiator in the rear instead of the one 120mm radiator in the rear and the other 120mm radiator in the drive bay.

Saw the other post....couldn't help but think that people are a little bit jumpy....anyways, I like your build. it doesn't deserve a 1, 2, or 3. I gave it a 7/10. It is a nice color scheme, water-cooler [wish i had the patients], and because of the other post....LOL. -cheers-

edit: I turned water-cooled into water-cooler...apparently it is an office computer? lol. XD
