I think that the guy from Crysis is checking it out!

Looks really good from the side, looks like its a big box o' fans and lights!

That red fan looks lonely, though

Good mod. I haven't had any issue with my SB with my Oc, even with added voltage to keep folding stable, but maybe I have some awesome airflow or something. Nice mod, especially because you didn't have to go out and by other parts. Those are always the best.
