Aprreciate your honest opinion vlamnire !
The default led's on the xspc blocks are blue by factory . I just bought some white ones to replace the blues I just havent got around to swapping them out it yet.
Unfortunately , Gigabyte only has this top model board in one color scheme. Small accents of green are not even noticable when the side panel is on . So mixing green sleeves on the psu would not look good unless I painted some parts of the case green. I actually bought green sleeving ... same color as my pci slots .. looks like Kermit the frog and just doesnt fit my build theme. The decals on the res were stuck on there by my 13yr old son as an after thought . To me ... they were just tacky and quickly were removed.
As for the side panel window ... .. it actually looks like baby blue tint upclose. The 3d effect of the window looks killer from the side . -Personally I like it because its different.
However I do have some extra acrylic laying around and I was going to mod into the panel anyways when I got around to sleeving.
What sucks is that there is metal offset on the edges that would have to be cut back about 1" inorder for a larger window to work. Not an easy cut and dry job but not an impossible job to say the least.
BTW -There's 1,000,000,000 zip ties on the back of the case in those pics.
Soon.. there will be much less. Waiting on my sleeving tools to come in .
I decided on splitting my loop! Temps are currently good but I feel they could be better. I'm at 4.8ghz on my 3770k but I'm going for a solid 5.0ghz 24/7. I can get there now with stability and with decent volts but my temps are alittle too high for my likings. (7970's are clocked @1225mhz core 1650mhz memory and they're making my cpu toasty)
-Just ordered a 5.25 drive bay res/pump combo from performance pc's.. Should be here in a few days. Stick around for the loop split pictures!Edited by glenn37216 - 3/11/13 at 3:16pm
