Ok, sorry for the edit, you've been around a few weeks, you should know I do this.
So, did I miss something or is what I'm about to ask part of how you did the fan switch? Or was it you?
Anyway, my question is, have you told us how you've connected the side panel fans into what looks to be the back of the case? If you have, please link me to where you posted it. Then, do they sell a different model in Scotland or did you not have a hard time getting the Corsair pump mounted letters up in this case? Ok, I remember getting it that way but the tubing definitly hit the side fans. So, what'd you do?

V-6?? Isn't that a picture of the CPNS-10? I've never seen one in person, never known anyone that's used one but I have seen it in magazines.

Oh, I see where it says V-6 but really it's a CPNS-10 with an extra fan, that blue LED on top is a remote control (sort of), you detach it, change the fan speed then put it back on the unit and the fan changes to the speed you set.

@ Enigma Can't be E, they're PWM plugs, he's somehow got it wired to connect the PWM plugs into the back plate.

Mindy's laughing her ass off! "That's what you get for asking those kinds of questions."
Really E, you gotta know by now if we see something funny we're going to point it out!

@ Danny. Danny, the H50 is chemically (usually electrically) "inert" one of the arguments or points rather that I made when I first got on this thread is that most water cooling isn't water at all. In the H50 it's ethylene glycol. Sound familiar? Anti-freeze, spill it all over your car and it won't short out, makes a hell of a mess and it's really bad for the environment and will kill animals (one of ours died from it) but it will not short anything out if it leaks.
Then I sent my rig back to get it re-built because they really messed up and I told them "no UV reactive fluid" so they put in distilled water! Want something done right do it yourself. It's still running water but I've got a few things to alter it with. Will probably remove it eventually and put some "inert" fluid in there for my peace of mind.

the egg cooler design is a better cooling unit then normal ones(if not crossfire) and from what i have heard, the HIS is getting some great OC's
Oh, I don't know, if you're used to the 4870X2 and you switch to the 5770 your going to wonder what happened to some of your detail.
Mindy plays RPG's so framerates are not a very important thing, however, the latest games have extreme graphics and some of these objects are extremely ornate, she's seen major things in the new system that she never saw before, even on her laptop which has an onboard ATI graphics card. The battery can't last more than 20 minutes but her games were beautifull, until I built her new machine and put in this:

I got it for a little less, just $20- because it was part of a combo thing but XFX is the only one that has a double lifetime warranty, you get a lifetime warranty and if you sell it, the next person gets the same warranty. Future proofing in case you ever want better or less even, this way you at least have the warranty behind it to bolster the sale.
A 5770 has only half the stream processors that a 5870 has so it has to drop things somewhere and that usually turns out to be detail. The 5850 though only has 160 less and the black edition has the cypress chip clocked up to it's maximum without tampering with the voltage.
Either way you go, you should at least get an XFX, the egg coolers are better for the smaller cards but a full card like a 5850 needs the whole shell or if you get extreme with it, water cooling but you know that's a whole different ball park.

I guess you missed the part where he said he gave away his 4870x2 because it was overkill. If the 4870x2 is overkill for his needs, the 5850/5870 is going to be overkill

Isn't that the V6? Which is based off the V8....which wasn't copied from Zalman.

I decided to change the fans I was using for my push/pull exhaust of the H50's radiator.I picked up a 2nd Corsair 120mm fan (same fan that comes boxed with the H50).

Not an LED fan; instead I installed the 12 inch LED cathode on the inside roof of the case. As a result, I like it much better then the bright blue LED fan I had previously.

You can't tell by the pictures, due to the flash-on, (I need a better camera to take it without flash), but its giving the case an "underwater" type of feel. Wish I could show you guys what I see.

Yeppir, I missed it and you are right!

Hehe! That's what I get for going to Starbucks at 6pm!
So yeah E, a 5850 would really be overkill!
