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?
With that much Rad for just a CPU you won't even need fans....me jokes..but you could run them totally silent. If you have money to burn, 7970 and a new sexy block for it. tongue.gif

Well, I've got my case and started the transfer to it.




I'll be working a custom power cable for the hdd's tonight and working out how to route the rear fan cable.

btw, yes I know some sleeving is also required tongue.gif damn those power switch, etc cables

The Kuhler has found a home already and the Hyper 212+ was returned as the fan was stuck @ 100% load.
That's one plus to air, point the right number of fans in the right direction and your Golden.. tongue.gif

It would be quite sexy indeed ... /sigh such a dilemma, first world problems I guess? rolleyes.gif

And yes, it's going to be ridiculous for just the CPU biggrin.gif

That is nice! Which dye and sleeve did you use?

For the dye, can I recommend "Gigabyte Orange" from Mayhems thumb.gif

I agree. I've been thinking of that exact internal color scheme for an HTPC case mod using metal/wood exterior.

Love the colours and build but personally I think the PCIe cables draw too much attention. I would've done them black or dark grey. Some kind of backrground color you know. And routed them out of sight more. But that's just my opinion. I prefer to have my components stand out more, only a matter of taste really. Good job either way thumb.gif

EDIT: Oh, and sleeve those fan cables. Now I've noticed them they're a real thorn in the eye tongue.gif
