so the 80mm thick rad isnt as useful as i first thought then? also any water block that i do buy will be a nickel and plexi one. Once i have sleeved my psu i will decide on the color coolant as it may need more blue as im going to use the blue as the ascent color with light gray as the main, i would use black as the main but the sabertooth is all black so i believe it will be overpowering to the rest of the color's. The max size rad i can get in the top is a 30mm because i dont want to have to run the fans on the outside because i would have to remove the handle.

30mm on the top is fine then I didn't realize you had limited space.

But yes, an 80mm is overkill. If you still want a thick rad, go for a 60mm one. I have a Black Ice GTX240 radiator on the bottom of my case and I love it. The high FPI makes it great for medium speed fans (I'm using Noctuas)

It's not that there's limited space in the top there's 60mm, but i dont want to have to remove a portion of the handle to be able to fit the fans.

The colors have now been chosen. I've spoken to mike and we both agree that (clicky) would be best.

Went shopping today and i brought 2 msi 7950's yay.
Ive run 3D mark 11 and these are my score's

p11996
graphics score 14155
physics score 8815
combined score 7486


Are these about right for my cards



I've downloaded the ROG version of gpu-z, and when i open gpu-z it crashes. (msi afterburner works fine along with all other programs) how can i resolve this? or is it just a crappy version of gpu-z.


When i finally get gpu-z open it say's one of my gpu's has around 90% load and is around 70 degrees while the other is barely being touched and is around 30% load at 30 degrees. this usage and temps is after playing black ops 2 for about 30-45 mins. Is this normal?

I have also just run heaven 3.0 it was an open and run test and these are the score's i got.

average fps- 175.9
score- 4431
min fps- 57.5
max fps- 289.3


Again do these sound about right.

Update.

I could'nt get the 7950's to stop blue screening, even when it didn't blue screen they still wouldn't run the 1 minute furmark test so i took them back.

The guys at novatech changed them for me straight away and i got a msi gtx 680 lightning and got £32.99 back

First impressions of the 680 is that its so quite, the 7950's sounded like a jet engine i can understand the crossfire is louder but the difference in the noise levels are astonishing. Im pretty sure the stock Intel cooler is louder than my 680.

Update

I found these fans so load until i used the reducers that came with my sp120's.

You gotta love the look of the gpu reactor on the 680 lightning.


My package arrived from lutro0, that chocolate bar made my day. smile.gif cheers Mike

Sleeving will begin as soon as i can put my order in at mdpc for the heatshrink and b magic sleeve. I'm going to be sewing the cables together, then im going to shorten the non modular cable's so that they only just reach the back of the case and the connector will not be seen. My plan is to then make extensions that will go to the motherboard 24pin and the 8pin. Im also thinking of forming a blanking panel that will cover over the connections at the back.


The picture's still not that great but i am getting a decent camera soon as i need one because im going to gamescom in august.
