Completely silent, gpu temps max out at 55c during scrypt mining, CPU load temps tops at 60c prime load and about 50c in bf4 smile.gif

Mods done so far are removed hdd cages, top panel cut out for 360 rad, also cut out a hole in the bottom between the rads for extra fresh cold air.

Got a window cut out but i still need to cut out side panels for bottom rads smile.gif

Thanks for the comment, will post some more pics later if you are interested!
