(updated) cleaned up the system a bit, sleeved some cables and more pics !!!!

* Sleeved some cables, I couldn't find any smaller cm sleeves in large quantity so I had to use 1 sleeve for 2x wires, it's better looking then the stock sleeving, but it could be better, oh well, one more thing on my "todo list"...
* Gutted the stock Omni ALC fans tho as good as they were, it was boring and turned them into 12cm fan shrouds.
* Replaced Omni ALC fans with Cooler Master XtraFlo, they are sexy
* The PCIE power cables are ugly as hell, its mainly because of that big "2200uF capacitors", I wonder if that's even really needed and if I can remove them... This is based off Silverstone's site.
Quote:
To reduce electrical whine/buzz associated with high performance graphics card’s dynamic loading changes, 2200uF capacitors are attached to PCI-E connectors.
This design also helps to maintain better voltage stability and improve ripple & noise performance.

EDIT: July 9, 2011

Just wanted to give you an idea of some of the temps I am facing with my Tri SLI setup running full load...

Stock Reference fan for the top 2 580's,
Bottom 580 is a Gigabyte 3fan version cooler which works pretty well for those who is wondering,
Corsair H70 w/ 2x Gelid 12 Push | Pull,
2x Gelid 12 Side, 1x 230mm Cooler Master front intake (stock), 3x Cooler Master XtraFlow top exaust..

.... and Yes, it sums it up just about right compared to my Panasonic Vacuum Cleaner... (the noise I mean, duh)

In a Nutshell...
Idle CPU Core 35,31,33,32, GPU_Top 53, GPU_Middle 49, GPU_Bottom 36, MB 35
Load CPU Core 51,49,47,50, GPU_Top 94, GPU_Middle 90, GPU_Bottom 69, MB 49

Well after almost 2 months, this is the result.. I am thinking it's 90% complete right now, still have a few mods to do and the parallel added to the loop, then on with the temperature test, etc.. Hope you enjoy the pics, a whole boat load of them... Some of these pictures are from a old batch, I just wanted to throw it in there to give you a better picture of "The evolution of Reference Stock Cooling, to Closed Loop Package, to Custom Loop"....

Woohoo, was waiting for the go ahead. Looks to be a nice build, looking forward to tons of pics (judging by the amount of reserved posts.)
