I couldnt help but notice that you run a HDMI cable into a DVI adaptor in your rig, if im not mistaken you have 120Hz monitor?
Correct me if im wrong but doesnt the HDMI output in your screen to a DVI adaptor prohibit the use of 120Hz, since it requires a Dual-link DVI cable to output 120hz?

Thanks KingChris...
I should stop typing out people's names lol.
Let me read on what would be considered a decent build on AMD Platform.

Thanks for this information Shaakz. Looks like you are right.
Found this post on nVidia forums, which actually took me back to overclock.net and sent a PM to Smykster.

Came home and tried DVI Dual Link cable (comes with 690/Monitor don't remember which one sent it) and it works.. now at 120HZ band.gif
With HDMI cable, even though the adaptor was DVI Dual Link , the highest was 60HZ.



This picture from wiki shows the different types of cables..


So I knew the longer & older, sleeved gold plated DVI cable below would not work.. frown.gif

Say, since you have a 3d lightboost capable monitor, have you thought about enabling lightboost ? Here's the OCN link

Everything turned out great. thumb.gif
Several things throughout your build at the least gave me ideas/inspiration on changes that I made or will be making in my build. For example I had all but forgotten the mini Tamiya connectors until you mentioned them, and have since utilized them in my build. Probably your sLight panel was the final push I needed to quit waffling get started on my own.

Just for FYI I decided to get one of the Acrylite edge lit sheets, 0.315" thick and edge polished. I don't remember you saying if you actually ever tried it at all, but hopefully it will work out for me alright. Probably should have ordered a thinner version but if it works, it works, and that's all I care about.

Once again kudos on a nice finish to a great project.

Thanks for the link socketus. Great forum for information.
One thing different now is that I get 3D with higher resolutions than 720p ..since changing the cable to make it 120Hz.
The 3D in WOW is excellent looking but I doubt I can use it in raids. The cursor is in the front and in a 3D image ...clicking a character takes a second. That delay will not do in raids.
For 2D and light boost, will try that tonight.

Thanks Mandrix. Many have contributed to this build and I tried thanking folks for their contributions at work related project and it was a mess. Everytime I sent an email I forgot someone..
I have an Endlighten panel but have not tried it. Too lazy to redo any of the current Slightboxes.

One warning on the SLigthbox below a reservoir. If water drips on it , clean it fast...because if it gets to edge, it will get sucked in (between multiple layers of acrylic) and then its impossible to get it out (unless you dismantle).
My Reservoir for GPU had a small leak last night....when I was building a AQ dashboard I noticed the percentage dropped to like 70%.... and panic after that.

Here's the first draft of my dashboard...needs more work to make it smaller...maybe lesser moving gifs in the next draft version.

Etched with logo. It lights up a tiny bit even without the LEDS, and with the just the light from bottom Slightbox.


Got the RGB Remote ..but don't have a male RGB pins to connect. They gave me the remote controlled unit with female pin outs. Should have been male...as the RGB Strip has female . Bah.
Ordered male to male pins, and the store upgraded the shipping to overnight from California to NJ.

Have few scratches on the Acrylic. Should have handled it more carefully last few weeks when it was lying around. Never thought the etching would come out this good. O well too late now, not paying for redoing it on a new piece.

Where did you get the etching done? Looks great!
