Very nice build!! Love the orange and black mix. Btw have you overclocked your ram at all?
Negative on the ram overclock. I increased the voltage to recommended specs, but that was it. I haven't overclocked anything yet. I want to, but right now this machine handles everything I throw at it with ease, so there really hasn't been a pressing need.
glad to hear that you're happy with with temps and your success into WC'ing.
as for the grill in the back, i tend to remove it b/c like you said, it stifles the airflow. :
I probably will remove the grill ultimately. It was amongst the left overs of the A16 case I looted, so I just tossed it on there.
In other news, I have decided to take the day off. Hours of de-pinning, soldering, and sleeving just doesn't sound like a real good time today. I have to work later tonight, so I'm enjoying the time I have.
In other other news, I have poor impulse control. I stumbled on this little dandy, and couldn't restrain myself. Thats a dialed down version of the one in my case, for almost half the price I paid originally. The newer 260's don't look like they have the back plate, so I figured this was as good a chance as any to get two "matching" cards. The free shipping sealed the deal. Commensurate water cooling accessories are on the way from PPC's as well.
Now the question is SLI, or fold? I can't fold SLI I don't think? I need to look into that. I suppose I also need to sort out how to overclock these cards.
