I voted 6/10 because:

From what I can see (not a lot) seems like an excellent build and that is what I voted for.... I would like some better (brighter) pics to better appreciate your work!

6 for now!

good to see you got some pics worthy of your rig....

The rig, itself, is about as Hi-End as it can be! Industrial look (love it), not too flashy, just right lighting! Nothing negative to comment about. I can tell, you took your time planning and applying, so the end result really rewards your efforts!

great work up to now!

youd get better temps if youd water down the proc and the 295s. Ive seen better, 6/10

Man your Case is WoW, Super Cool, neat and Looks like a beast. Terrific Job. commenting on my mod is enough to make me feel like i did a good job, and to tell you the truth I think i didn't give it the time it needed. (I was dead tired and I had a medical surgery during that time).

but your case deserves 15/10

What you guys think? i think its GARBO

I didnt say that MY rig is better. I stated that IVE SEEN better. Coolit Freezone doesnt mean a thing. Pelts are underated and the fan is weak. Not unless you mod it. A liquid cooled system performs better than the stock freezone on proc load

Now if you cant stand criticism, youd better just go to a cave or something. Its part of being in a society. Now the last time Ive checked a 6 out of 10, its called Excellent. That is what I think of your rig.

Now if Ive hurt your feelings earlier, that wasnt my intention. Im just sorry for you if you get hurt that easily. Im also sorry that you get happiness from this place from that drop down box with numbers.

Your rig leaves my head spinning...

Real good cable management, a otaku element to it... and dude two 295's.... my neck hurts

I would recomend liquid cooling, for your cpu, but i wouldnt try it on the gpu's dude not worth it, ive had some serious problems with trying that..

Thanx man,appreciated.295's can stand temps not going higher than 100C.i reach 88C peak on GPU 1-2(295) 70C peak on GPU 3 (260) and +2C @ 4-5th GPU (295) Running Crysis -maxed out settings.Cuz the the GPUs are stacked close to each other,Thats gonna make you worry seeing the temps go up and down @ 85C+.Fans @ 100% and case is open btw.This case is not for This kind of set-up but i bought it for WC set-up.

So yea WC-ing the 295s (not including 260) will give more air and space to breathe for the 260.After all its just a Physics card.its getting higher temps cuz the 295s are sandwiching it.Not to mention the backplate installed for 295 @ the bottom.removing the Backplate doesnt help decrese temps.

3 o ma co-workers RMA'd their 295's cuz of careless WB installation.2 of my friends-friend RMA'd their 295's after stripping,cleaning the fans and replacing the Thermal paste.
The 295's are like they dont want to be bothered and doesnt want to get touched.

But still Dual looping is still in progress,I have 4 Blue prints half done.cant finish even 1 blue print.

Ye,i was thinkin bout that for some time,like place it right behind the System close to the Rads.get one and Paint it Chrome Black eh?lol.

the Costs r planned also.i mean a total salary for 7mnths is more than enuf for an average person to grab w/e things he wants.

I voted 1/10 because:

Attitude means everything. Just look at the rating system.. 6 is Excellent... So, you pissy over a person that gave you a 6.. Just cause you have money, doesn't mean anything on a case mod.

I have dreamed (seriously) of a "WING" tpye radiator set up O_O got the Picture?
like 2 Rads mounted @ the back "WING"style like a 90 deg. outer angle and 25 Deg. space from RAD to RAD.Revisionary,what u guys think, To accomplish that set up i need atleast a 6mm bracket to hold down 2 heavy Feser Monsta' RADs.

Any Ideas to add? oh and Plus the tubing mount.

thnx in advanz \m/ rock on

Now that some are cleared up... The loop is looking good. The reason i didn't grab that case, and went with a MM case is because i didn't feel that it was going to be safe for me to have a rad set outside the case. But, I do have to say, that you have put ton of thought into the water loop, and it is looking good. It's something that can be displayed to everyone

hello there, lemme rate it first! it's 9/10, since u need to watercool, then will be perfect!
first, i can only give suggestions for the material u should consider:
go for 1/2 ID 3/4 OD, with black Feser UV, it will look perfect in both light and dark condition.
Feser 360 for your Quad SLI Feser 240 for CPU+NB, Noise Blocker Fans (u got 5 fans blowing for radiator itself), and u must figure out how to install all rad inside the case. that's very challenging bro! but, i'd be happy to the progress if u willing to share..
now, am still testing my system, looking for the lowest, and best OC point. and good luck for your dual-loop!

oh ye, u gotta sleeve the entire system, if u want it to looks great!

Thanks DGK it's good to be back, the sad part is that I'm back to work again..lol

Anyways I'm thinking....I'll continue modding my GIGABYTE just to get better, but I would like to change to another case probably a Med-ATX so Tell me what do you think ANTEC NINE HUNDRED TWO, Tt Xaser VI BLCAK, Tt Xaser VI Black/Red, Tt V9 BE, Tt Element S, Tt Elemnt G. I know it seems like there is only ThermalTake.

please Give me Ideas on my current mod I need to get the most out of it.
