The case is a CM Stacker 830 NVIDIA edition, so it had green sides and top which I pulled and had anodized black. All the fan cables were sleeved in black mesh. I drilled a couple of holes on theVapo chill unit to reroute the tubing to mount the Vapochill unit to the CM Stacker case with no mods to that. Then, I just worked on cleaning up the cabling. The CrystalFontz LCD lets you monitor system utilization realtime or any item you wish. It is completely customizable. The side fans were kept in place, but the tray required some rework to fit with a dremel. It makes for decent airflow to keep the 8800GTX cards cooler by about 8C under load. I also rebuilt each of the video cards, replacing the stock thermal pads with a better version and using AS5 on the core. The cards operate cooler by about 5C.
3DMark06 is 21K for bench settings. At 2560x1600, it still scores 13K with stock clocks in HD gaming mode! For an older test, it gets 82K in 3Dmark03 and 220K in AM3.
