I'll post some imgs of the overclock and the cpu temps once i get it stable.

Try combining those posts into one - keeps the threads nice and compact.

Loving the parts though smile.gif

Started fiddling around with the radiator, and came up with some interesting choices.

Azza recommended.
Radiator on top


There might be a problem if i go with this, as there might not be enough space to go push pull unless i use slim fans.


In atx configuration the fans come real close to the motherboard, but i wont know how much space there is going to be until Monday when the motherboard arrives.

In reverse atx its a similar story, the fan blocks part of the expansion slot, might not be a major problem since I'll only be using 2 gfx crads.


I'll have to remove cardholder to put 4 fans on the inside.mad.gif


I started thinking that I would cut out part of the top of the case to allow the rad to stick partially outside of the case.
I could make some brackets at work and bolt them on.


I think it possible to put it at the bottom of the case in push/pull, but I'll have to move the PSU up some.



If putting the in the bottom drive bays works, I might as well get another 480 or a 420 (since it looks like wide enough) to use later on for the gpus.

Interesting case, lol. But I certainly love all those components you are throwing into there! Can't wait until it is finished thumb.gif
