quick photoshop....for my build, those deep red lines would've been terrible. i could definitely see it happening with white though

say...what would it take to get an envelope sized cut of vinyl sent to hawaii?

What sized envelope??? if its USPS,and its a standard billing envelope, i think USPS said it will cost like a dollar. plus whatever it would cost for the vinyl itself. say 4 bucks or something.

The Antec Big Boy does not fit, the holes will not line up with those on the case. Not sure about the other two, think you would be better off buying a Bitfenix fan, guaranteed to fit.

Ok PM the retailer you bought it from. That's messed up. I did find those specific screws to be very easily stripped but all those plastic bits are in perfect condition

-dual tower phanteks cooler (black w/ white fan housing)
-asus z77 mobo
-seasonic x650 (fully modular, black cables biggrin.gif )
-3570k
-intel 520 ssd
-recycled sata 2 caviar black
-recycled kingston ram (might buy the samsung if i have a clearance issue)
-scythe kaze q for the 230mm spectre and one of the stock 120mm spectres - not sure how i'm gonna mount the controller
pretty much everything inside of the case will be black. except for that stupid asus motherboard -.- there will be a few specs of blue from it, along with a very visible blue pci e slot
to fill this blue pci e slot i want something that performs well, stays cool, but most importantly, stays quiet. two obvious choices are the msi twin frozr IV and the asus dcu ii. the twin frozr has an immediate "advantage" with a blue design that matches the pci e slot, while the asus has red lines on its cooler (i could add something temporary to change the color of the lines without losing the warranty). however, when looked at in another light, the asus seems superior with its nearly inaudible cooler (even at load). the twin frozr is pretty soft itself - most people probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two at idle, but it just isn't quite as quiet as the asus. msi's warranty service is also more problematic than asus', which isn't too appealing.
but then there's a third contender - evga with its signature 2 cooler. as far as warranty goes, evga blows asus and msi out of the water. appearance? the signature 2 is a very attractive card that will not clash with the asos mobo, and out of the three cards, evga's is the only one that matches the design of the prodigy. and noise output? at idle, it's supposed to be pretty quiet - but there are no hard numbers or comparisons to back that up. people may claim that it's quiet, but i have no idea what their environment is like or what their definition of quiet is. the asus and msi both produce less than 30 dBA in a near silent room (other coolers' idle noise levels are higher than either cooler's load noise levels) and information like this for the evga is non existent, due to it being released later than the other cards
across the board, price and performance are all relatively the same and, all things considered, i'm still unsure of which company's card to buy. msi with its questionable warranty but excellent acoustic levels, asus and their butt ugly cooler but AMAZING lack of noise, or evga with the gorgeous cooler and exceptional warranty, but unknown noise levels
tldr; i'm very indecisive

Have you considered the Gigabyte Windforce OC edition? I have 2 of the 670s and they are great. No reason to think the 660ti would be bad given the same tech. Also has a blue PCB and blueish/blackish smokey colour scheme.

I'm on my server atm, because while teaching my son the intricacies of DDC pumps, he overflowed my rad while priming/filling. So I've had it in front of a small space heater for the past 24 hrs, and running my AD II with an external power supply, to add a bit more localized heat to the socket area after soaking up what I could manually. I want to give it a few more hours before I power it up, just in case. smile.gif
@ RandomHer0: No problem mate, always happy to help out. biggrin.gif

Wow man that has to suck. I know replacing the CPU, emptying out the fluids, replacing the parts, refilling and priming took time but when that happens look out!. I know accidents happen but I hope no damage was done

I got it in fast and I have LOADS leftover that I may sell for half for what I paid--I even have some black carbon fiber left over from another build I did that I would throw in biggrin.gif

Anyone else having issues using there USB 3.0 ports? I want to know before I decide to replace them. Do they not work as they are supposed to? BTW all if I manage to sell my Cosmos II system I will be giving away my HAF X 942 case for free thumb.gif
