I'm done, just need to to wire management to wrap up. Played through all of Crysis 2 and I'm impressed all around. Not as quiet as water and the gpu(s) as cool, but everything is respectable and the cooling did its job quite well biggrin.gif

Did you sell the other Silver Arrow you had ? Then buy another? Or what happened there? I see you have changed up a couple times now. thinking.gif

I did sell the first one thinking it was hampering my temps with the three 6970s. With the 560s, there's hardly any effect on it from the SA. Plus, it performs better and its quieter than the Kuhler 920 and vastly superior to a Hyper 212+. I bought this one on a whim after I sold my first one. The Kuhler has found a home already and the Hyper 212+ was returned as the fan was stuck @ 100% load.

Starting to look real good. Can't wait to work on mine, it arrived yesterday but I have lots of studying to do the upcoming weeks thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
I also ordered an Alphacool UT60 420 to go in the top and I'll mount the 360 in the front. Now, my problem is this: it's ridiculously overkill for CPU only.
So I'm still deciding if I should buy a 7970 (Brother has one so if he upgrades in the future then I can Xfire) with a full cover block or if I should wait it out with my 570 I have now and see what the next gen brings? Putting the 570 under water doesn't seem to be the most cost-effective thing to do at this point although I would really like a full-cover watercooled VGA in my rig tongue.gif

What do you guys think?
