i installed the other 8800GT into the rig. i don't have the spliced pcie 6pin anymore but two different wires after getting advice from radodrill(thank you again). at load with fah, the one on water hits 43C and the duorb hits 54C. not bad if you ask me (i don't plan on oc'ing this one cause it gets too confusing for rivatuner to know which one i want it to OC at launch.
makes me sad considering this card could oc pretty well.
and as for the 24pin atx cable. i'm definitely going to just make one myself from scratch. not only would it look better but it would fit inside the case much better too.. the current one is bulging my side panel. :angry:
i got the rest of my stuff for the LED module today but i won't be working on it until tomorrow. so you guys should be able to expect an update tomorrow unless something unexpected happens. laters!
