So it finally begins! Fedex just arrived with two workers to carry the 65lbs of Caselabs gear I purchased from Jim into my foyer. Here are some pics today, I will be adding more as I progress.


The obligatory Caselabs box shot. My STH-10 and Pedestal just arrived!




This is my submersible pump and filter I use for flushing and pre cleaning my HWLabs Black Ice GTX radiators. I do a water/vinegar soak and slosh then rinse with distilled followed by a hour of filtering to pick up any shavings and goo from the manufacturing process



And here are the Rad's 560's, 480, 360, 240



Hope you guys enjoy this build!

just out of couriosity why not 4 way 7970's? would be cheaper, way more powerfull and the extra gig of ram would be nice for the 3 way monitor resolutions.

also looks f'ing sick. will defiantly be a bad ass setup! thumb.gif
