But there is conflicting information on this build in the pictures and in your sig, would you mind posting your current specs? Just curious because at some points you have two 570's and one 570 at others. There is even an Asus DCII card in one of the pics.

Thanx for kind words man, this build is constantly changing so if you take a look at earlier shots you will see different hardware, ive had multiple different gpu's and cpu/mobo combos in past, Asus DCII card you saw was a GTX560 Ti top which i sold and got reference 6950, then i got a GTX 570, which i recently upgraded to SLI.

Here are my current specs:

i7 3770K @ 4.5Ghz
Asus Z77 Sabertooth
Evga GTX570 SLI
10GB Mushkin Silverline DDR3 1333
Corsair H60i
128gb Plextor M3 SSD
1.5tb Hitachi Deskstar 7200rpm HDD
750w Ultra X4

I was also wondering, have you ever tried having sleeved extensions with the core 3000? I was wondering of just getting it rather than having my non-modular PSU fully sleeved.

How was your cable management then when you had it if you did?

Thanks again for all the help bro!

Here is an old shot with sleeved extensions back when i've had a 6950 and a p67 sabertooth board:

Thanks, so you are not using that eco thing for your CPU cooler anymore? You should do the window mod to it, if you have a jigsaw at least. Because this build is certainly a build that should have a window =D

I'm absolutely drooling over those final pics! That's an amazing job you did there!

Thanx again man but just to let you know I do have a custom clear side panel. Ive made it awhile ago out of smoked acrylic.
It might be little hard to see cause pics are kinda dark here it is:

Wow, now that I notice it, it looks fantastic. In the photos I thought you just had the side panel off. You put a lot of work into this build thumb.gif

One question though, what did you use to cut the acrylic?

Do you have any pics of how you made the transparent door? I built a pc using a core 3000 last week and can't believe how nice the case is. Need to get my own!

so actually you just replaced the side door to an acrylic cut to the door size, correct?
it looks great. I'm taking some ideas to my case mod. When it's done I'll share some photos, and make a reference to your post.
In my case I'll cut a small window just above the fan slot on the side door (about 200x100 mm)

Another question, what temps you're getting with the 3770K @ 4.5GHz and the H60i?
How the enermax fan performs compared to the corsair stock one?
thks

PS. you're mod looks really awesome

Precisely! I just removed stock panel and screwed a sheet of smoked acrylic on it's place thumb.gif

Btw Thanx for kind words!

I wish you good luck with your mod.
That h60i keeps my 3770K at around 68-70C under prime 95 load.
